Hero’s Birthday

Today is a hero’s birthday. She truly is a hero, but it’s her story to tell, not mine, so I won’t.

I’m just so bummed that I didn’t know yesterday when she was around doing things that help me and help people around me…

If I’d known, I would have bought flowers and dark chocolate and thrown a little party…

I’m a little humbled and chagrined because I go on and on about my own birthday, and here’s someone with her birthday coming up she didn’t let on…

She just kept on doing what she does to help…

while the rest of us went on about our day forgetting for a moment…

…that we were standing

near greatness.

It’s a hero’s birthday today.
