When Phyllis was 5 I got her the book ‘all about me’ by Dr. Seuss. Here are my answers (some of them!) since today is my birthday. Turned 34.

I have a God who loves me like crazy and I am excited about the coming year’s wondrous possibilities. That’s the one good thing about a birthday on New Year’s Day; you start the year completely new.
