September 1st

Happy Birthday to me.  Yep, this is an entry to quickly celebrate my own day, by sharing a few blessings.  First and foremost, the love of my beloved wife Sandra, and my beloved daughter Adelina.  My first congrats actually came from Adelina, who, being in Vietnam, celebrated Sept. 1st ahead of me.  So, below is an appropriate photo sent to me yesterday.  Very appropriate I will say, since I spent the afternoon, yesterday, napping, and trying to ward off a nasty cold going around the office.

Then came a greeting from Uncle Henry, my favorite uncle in Palo Alto, which included the following Haiku:

“A BIRTHDAY HAIKU POEM FOR THE MAN

Biker with a cause:
Kicking off the Fall with God.
He is don Carlos!”

Pretty cool; referring of course to my pending motorcycle trip, that will start in two days.

This morning I was taken to special breakfast by Sandra, and the owners of Barnaby’s surprised me with French Toast, as a gift after my migas.

At work I got to see Adelina’s smile as we chatted on Skype for a bit, and loads of facebook congrats have come my way.  What a blessed day.

And to consider that today is the beginning of Human Trafficking Awareness Month.
