Still Here!

Guess what? It’s my birthday today!  

It’s almost unbelievable that I’m 58 years old but that is the reality. It brings to mind the old cliche’ – Time flies when you are having fun. That or it just flies! LOL

Regardless, I am grateful to have come through it, even those moments which left some scars. For the most part, I would say that it’s been a life filled with just the right amount of all the ingredients necessary to reflect back on it and still be able to smile.

My wish for all, especially those who have stood by me, is that you enjoy the times with people who value and care for you and understand YOU are so very important. Always be kind, and when necessary, give of yourself to those in need.

I don’t need anything, really, but I do want a whole lot – not things, but feelings. Most days, I want to feel joy, comfort, love, support, excitement, fun, pleasure, and contentedness, but also to see those I care about having and feeling all those things that leave them satisfied with their own lives. If you’re going to give me anything for my birthday and every day I still have left on this planet, try to remember that I’d like you to be happy. It will impact my life positively. So be kind, be loving, and have the back of those you value. 

That’s all anyone can ask for because the rest is up to us. ❤

Cheers! 🙂
