Happy Birthday and It Is!

And it has arrived – the big 75 and guess what? It feels terrific! To top it all off it’s one of those incredibly perfect days here in the northwest – not even a wisp of a cloud, and such a rich blue sky, a gentle breeze – perfect!

For whatever reason the previous week saw lots of ups and downs and who knows why. Too much reflection? Maybe. Too much focus on the few negatives instead of the many positives? Probably. But whatever, today is beautiful and I even feel beautiful. My son has taken a vacation day today, my niece is here from Maryland and we’re going to spend the day together seeing just what all we can get into.

It is a day to celebrate, to laugh, to hug the ones you love, to count the many, many blessings and I do, I will, I am.

Once again, I wish you a Happy Birthday. I was premature about it the last time.

Happy Birthday, Sylvia, you are an inspiration. It was nice seeing you over on The Elder Storytelling Place.

Many happy returns!
