Today, September 3rd, is Melissa's 41st birthday. I will spend the day in one of her more recent favorite places, the Chiricahua Mountains in southern Arizona. In my own way I will be spending the day with her. I miss her every single moment of every day. That does not go away, but as she would say to me, "I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep".
Whatever you do, however you spend your day, please take a quiet moment to yourself and say thank you for everything that you have. Melissa made me the person I am today, and so that is one of the many things I will be saying thank you for. I have put together the playlist below as my birthday present to her on this special day. Please listen, enjoy, and spend some time with your favorite four legged friends.
