  I had a wonderful 42nd birthday & spent most of the day with my beautiful IndustriaLady and my folks came to see me from Nebraska and we enjoyed a nice lunch together. I'm definitely in a better place then I ever thought I'd be at this age with all I've put myself through but by the grace of God and my family and friends unconditional love I'm better then ever. It's a great feeling indeed!
