it's my birthday!

My birthday starts early with friends across the globe wishing me well. and as I wake up and Facebook reminds others that it's my birthday, the facebook wall wishes, the text messages and e-mails comes in.

I'm reminded that a small email to someone can lift up their spirits. I no longer take for granted the few seconds someone takes to write on my facebook wall. It's a busy world and they give me some of their time.

I'm valued and loved. I wish I can take that feeling and awareness with me across my every day.

I'm grateful for another year to live.

I'm grateful for my family, to my steadfast Andy and to my daughter who teaches me what unconditional love and unadulterated joy feels like.

I want to spend less mental energy on petty thoughts, and on self-loathing.
