Today is my Birthday and I’m in very good company!


Fortuitously for me – my birth date is nestled in-between (exactly 5 days before and 5 days after) two of the most well known American presidents. George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. The national holiday created to celebrate both of their birthdays occurs in the middle, therefore falling on my birthday giving me a wonderful feeling every time I think about it.

If any of their virtues can rub off on me (even just a little) as the result of proximity of birth dates, I’m a happy camper.

The courage, determination, strength of will and love of country that each repeatedly displayed during the course of their lives makes them men to honor and live up to as an American.

I am proud to be an American and I am proud of my family and fellow Americans.

Happy Birthday George and Abe!

~ Penny,

p.s. – I’m just spoofing with my photo here. although a female president (not me but someone highly qualified) would be a wonderful thing indeed – just saying …

  1. Many happy returns of the day Penny.

    Do you realise that the very consciousness you hold of the character and virtues of the two Greats on both side is in itself a step forward for you. So what could be your next step?


    • Hi Shakti! I’ve been offline quite a bit recently. I’d like to thank you for stopping by. My next step is to keep improving my mind as I continue to try to make a positive difference for others. Both things are very fulfilling! 🙂

  2. Happy birthday Penny and how fitting where you birthday falls because your views on the world are certainly admirable qualities and would make for great presidential candidacy. Just saying. 🙂
