Meriting to live to see one’s first birthday is a huge privilege, but now that I’ve turned 31, I must say I’m trully blessed. It’s not a “blessing in disguise” either. Every day I live, every breath I take, every time I swallow a parcel of food it’s an ongoing miracle. I’m extremely grateful to G-d, to my parents, to my grandparents, and to all my wonderful friends for making this happen. Thank you!
