Hello peeps, how ya doin'?
Years ago today, my Mommy Goddess had a hankering for ribs. And barbeque. And new shoes. And watermelon. And then I popped out. :-) Well ok it didnt go exactly like that but I'm sure it was like giving birth to a side of beef. Thanks Mom!
This year, the tiara stays in the closet. I am not throwing my Annual Everybody In The House Wake Up Because It Is Roo's Birthday And Someone Should Be On High Alert To Fetch Her Things And Generally Do Her Bidding Ritual.
Today is spent in quiet contemplation with me getting my own coffee. Writing. De-cluttering both home and brain, because it's been a bit jumbled and jivey around here for awhile now.
Things go down, one piece of craziness leads to another; the world is completely out of balance.
You cant see the forest for the trees....Happiness is not a brilliant climax to years of grim struggle and anxiety. It is a long succession of little decisions simply to be happy in the moment.
--J. Donald Walters
So today I remind myself of the importance of being present~and grateful for all of it.
Each of life's moments are like a struck match-you can only watch it burn beautifully and bright once.
PS However...if like me you must have a slice of merriment and cake-go quickly to Vanessa's Very Merry Unbirthday Party on today of all days! ;)
