39 And Feeling Fine

I remember when I was 39. I loved having one more year in my thirties. Today is Jonathon’s 39th birthday. I recall one of my favorite comedians Jack Benny typically answered when asked his age…39. 39 years ago today MJ, Aaron, and I were excited about his imminently joining the family.

Jonathon is a captivating personality. Once you meet him you never forget him. He seeks to make all whom he encounters feel welcome and appreciated. Jonathon is a Librarian. He loves the job. He is a voracious reader and a published writer. He is a Karokee Singer and a Trivia Master. He is the person his friends call on when they need a friend…

Jonathon is an artist of words but there is one word that he does not partake of…Gossip! When it comes to others he has no guile. I feel like I know his coworkers and friends from the lovely comments that he tells me regarding them.

Jonathon does not speak of his faith…he lives it…

Tonight it will be Toms Place and Pasta and much laughter and light hearts and deep memories of days gone by and of those to come…next year…40…
