I’m a palindrome… what are you?

You read that right, folks.

Today, I am 33.

The atomic number of arsenic.
The number to some of sports’ greatest players: Larry Bird, Patrick Roy, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Patrick Ewing.

I’d like to point out that Wikipedia had to point this out to me, as I don’t watch basketball or hockey.

I was unaware that a normal human spine has 33 vertebrae.

I think I had a 33 on the 18th hole of the beautiful golf course I played on Monday…. it was pretty embarrassing…

All in all? 33 is a pretty cool number.

Hubby was lovely enough to contribute by letting me know that 33 is the largest positive integer that cannot be expressed as a sum of different triangular numbers.

Who knew?
Seriously, that had completely escaped me.

I am celebrating my birthday with the people I hold dear in my life. I am giving thanks for all the wonderful gifts that God has given me over the last 33 years.

I have endured many things over the last few years. I have developed a better understanding of those whom I can trust. Sadly, people have turned their back on me for being happier in my life.
In my younger days, something like this would have bothered me. I was constantly searching for everyone’s approval. I was afraid of disappointing anyone.

The only person I disappointed was myself.

Those days are over. I’m stronger now. I know who I need now.

And they are still standing beside me, maybe not condoning, but supporting every decision I make.

Happy Birthday to me.
