Jennifer Aniston Honors Her 55th Trip Around the Sun With Moving Photo Montage

Jennifer Aniston celebrated her 55th birthday with a moving montage featuring a slew of throwback photos.

In a nostalgic post on Instagram, the Friends actress shared a video montage of some of her most heartfelt moments, including childhood photos and present-day snapshots.

The actress captioned the post with a simple word: “Grateful.” She then followed it up with the lyrics from the poem “The Layers” by Stanley Kunitz.

“When I look behind, as I am compelled to look before I can gather strength to proceed on my journey, I see the milestones dwindling toward the horizon and the slow fires trailing from the abandoned camp-sites, over which scavenger angels wheel on heavy wings,” the poem reads in part.

“Though I lack the art to decipher it, no doubt the next chapter in my book of transformations is already written,” the poem concludes, “I am not done with my changes.”
