Today is my 56th birthday. I woke up early to a foggy and misty beautiful fall day. I am determined to enjoy each second of this day. I had a rough weekend, not feeling good, in bed all day yesterday, the norm for me lately~ sick and tired.
Today is a new day, a day for me a day to look back over my life and know that I truly lived it the way I wanted to, with love, laughter, family and food in each and every day. I am so grateful as I look back and know that I really don't have any regrets. Not to say that there are times I would like to forget, but guess what? I let them go in a bubble out into the universe.
Today I am in the moment, enjoying all my birthday wishes, enjoying the love and prayer and good wishes that surround me~THANK YOU!!!
I am overwhelmed reading all your emails and cards and birthday wishes. It is truly a Happy Day for me.
This morning as I meditated (just closing my eyes)and thinking good thoughts. I gave myself a present... the present of love and hope and healing and strength that I will need this upcoming year. I wished myself a good and fulfilling journey accompanied by all of the people who are in my life. This is a difficult journey but I am not alone. That is a true gift.
So thank you for all your support and love. I feel it everyday. Yes, I will enjoy this day. My request to my family was a simple celebration of pizza and cake surrounded by my family, in my home among all of the things that are important to me. My pizza dinner is tonight. I can't wait!!
Love and laughter is my wish for you too!
I love all of you! thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
PS... this is a picture BEFORE I lost my hair, I will post the pizza celebration picture tomorrow!!!
