Happy Birthday To Me



I turned 52 years old today.

I am going to move further out of the dark place and let the candles on my cake light up the room.

I am going to make the choice to have a good day today, all day long.

I am going to remember who I am.

I am going to try to be a little of what I use to be.

I am not going to complain about anything.

I am going to be thankful that I can still physically hear, talk, and touch the people I love.

I am going to thank God that I am still here.

I am going to go out to Pine Ridge Hollow for lunch with Angelique, Nadalene and Josephine.

I am going to have a nice supper with Wahid and Nathan, Angelique and Don, Nadalene and Charlton.

I am going to make a wish with Josephine before we blow out the candles on my cake that is lighting up the room.

I am going to let the memories of the light from the blown-out candles on my cake keep me from the dark place.

I am going to see light in the darkness.

I am going to love to get old.

Today, on my birthday, I am going to have a little adventure.

Oh my. Did you print Dad's comment out and frame it? Now that is something to put up on the wall. I did not realize he had passed so recently. Feel my arms around you, love.
