Hi Everyone. Well, today I turn thirty six!
I thought you might enjoy a photo a card my Mom sent me which I opened this morning.
It features a foil stamped message and rhinestone decor element which she has...um...redesigned. Damn, it made me laugh. You know, I feel so grateful to have people in my life who not only make me smile, but let me laugh with them, and who just plain "get it."
Truly, this photo up here sums up my personality to a tee. I'm no shrinking violet, and nowhere near perfect. Often I feel that I am too outgoing and overexcitable. But, I do love my life, and I love what I am, even though my own antics make laugh and ok sometimes cringe. While at times I wish I was more graceful, younger, less brassy, more this more that... in the end, I know none of that really matters. What matters is having love in your heart, humility in your soul, and an openness to letting life teach you about it's many unexpected wonders.
So, on that note...Happy Birthday Everyone!
