Anoher Year


Tomorrow is my birthday. I love birthdays. So many of my friends hate birthdays and try to forget all about them, but I feel like a birthday is a day to celebrate life and all the wonderful blessings that have been mine in life. I want to shout from the housetops that I am turning another year older(That means I"m more credible, right?) and have received another years worth of blessings. I am still alive! I still can see the sun come up and the colors in a rainbow. I can hear the birds sing and the wind soughing in the trees outside my window. Part of my joy is that I survived Grizelda and still get to see my children and grandchildren (once in a awhile!).  But  even before Grizelda I felt this way about birthdays. We all get older. Pretending it isn’t happening doesn’t change one single thing. All that happens when you pretend is you lose out on a glorious day of fun and celebration.  

So Hurray! Happy Birthday to me, tomorrow. I’ve lived through one more glorious year.  I’m going to enjoy every minute of celebrating.

Happy birthday! Excellent perspective. I think I'll feel that way on my birthday this year, too.

After spending some serious time believing that my days were very numbered, and then finding out it was not yet my time to leave, I have a new perspective on birthdays. My birthday is right before Christmas, so I have rarely celebrated it, even as a child. I now wake up on my birthday with a real feeling of joy and happiness, and a great feeling of accomplishment. By this time, there have been ups and downs, and crisis and illnesses, and all sorts of problems in life, and I am still here to see another day and celebrate the gift of life on earth. I happily accept that gift, and wish the same to you. Happy Birthday, dear friend, and may your celebration be one to remember.xoxoxo

Happy Birthday!!! I had a great birthday. My birthday present to myself was to throw away my scale and to respect my body. I'm going to live in truth while I lose the weight and use truth tools! Thank you for everything you have taught me!
