Yes, today is my birthday. And like I said before, don't even ask how old I am! My mind will say one thing and my body another. And does it really matter, after all? I will say this: Birthdays are weird as you get older. At least for me. There's a more mellow feeling about it all, yet a undercurrent of anticipation for some unusual surprise or happening to come your way on your special day, and an anticipation to change the year ahead for the better.
Though I'm not really into a big hullaballoo, I have always "secretly" wanted a surprise birthday party. Probably more now, that I am older and my many blessed girlfirends are spread about. I always think it would be so grand for us all to get together and get down and giggly, like we used to-just for a night.
As for presents, well...I really don't want much. I know it sounds hokey but I love when my kids make something or write me a poem. As for the hub, I am simply asking for a humongo platter of sushi!!
I actually woke up with a great feeling of gratitude for what I do have. My children are my biggest blessing. My hub. My faith in God who never ceases to amaze me. My great friends. The beautiful snow outside. The enlightening information I have been receiving of late. And I am grateful for all the good that I know is still to come!
And now for Birthday Wishes. Contary to tradition, where you would keep your birthday wish a secret...I am going to wish it out loud here and now. Because recently, I am learning about the power of wishes, and sharing them, and having many beings join you in your wishing vibe, so to speak to help manifest it into a reality.
This is an important wish for me as we have had a real scare with our financial state since my hub was laid off last year. And we have had a few encounters with my children being ill so of course their well being is primo on the wish also.
And please know, that we are not high falutin people. I'm not lookin' for a Mercedes here, or a grand mansion. Just security to pay the bills, and take care of my children. Of course an abundance is always nice, as then we wouldn't have to worry about college tuition and I could help my family and friends in need.
From CaC: I’d like to ask you to both make a wish (as many as you'd like) and to support each other’s wishes. It’s very simple. Just post on your blog something you really, truly, deeply (and maybe even secretly) wish for.
Then everyone who is participating in Create a Connection, and anyone who sees this post
(I have to improvise wording here as my copy button wigged out) will wish the same for that person by leaving a comment like, "As bluejude wishes, I wish for her also."
So I bluejude wish for an abundance of financial security and for the well-being of my family.
There you have it!
And now I'm off for more coffee!
