Celebrating Life

Hi Y'all,

Thought I would share my Facebook post from earlier today.

Good Morning! Thank you for your well-wishes on this Fabulously Happy Day!
In celebrating my entry into the seventh decade of Life, I pause to relish the wonder and joy, the sweet sensation of loving, and of being loved.
It has been a wild ride.
And wasn't that what I wanted from the get-go? To live this life, running through the grasses, the weeds, the brambles, the vast jungles? To find my way through, around, and over, each and every obstacle, challenge and adventure? To savor the catastrophes alongside the joyful interludes?
Yes. Yes. It was.
In looking back at my dreams, accomplishments, my travels, my voracious thirst for knowledge, my raging appetite for more, more, more, I see the thread that binds it all together, and keeps me from hurtling into the abyss.
No, it's not gravity. It is love. I know this with all my God-given senses, in the deepest recesses of my heart and soul.
As a child, I desired wisdom. To be wise, a wise woman.
That little girl took in every nuance of her life, and from all she absorbed, chose wisdom over love, not realizing it was an all-or-nothing choice.
She got her wish.
Today, as wise woman, I make a new wish for that little girl. Henceforward, and forever more, this wise woman dedicates our remaining, remarkable, years, to Love.
Happy Birthday, Wise Little Girl. You are loved beyond measure. And so much more.❤️
