As I contemplate what a wonderful birthday it has been…
This morning, after my 53rd birthday, I sit here enjoying an awesome cup of coffee. And I gaze out the window into the early morning darkness.
Ever so slowly the light reveals a beautiful field covered lightly with a fresh blanket of snow.
A majestic deer cautiously treks across the white carpet. The quietness of the moment seems like an orchestra playing an overture to a new wonderful play.
Although there are clouds I believe in the sun.
I ponder the numerous phone calls, text messages, emails, social media posts, birthday cards.
The delicious home-cooked meal. The yummy vanilla cake and the sweet chocolate frosting.
The wonderful birthday movie date (Hidden Figures).
So much love!
As the light emerges the darkness is driven away.
A new beginning.
I’m thankful for countless blessings. Especially for all the loving family and friends that make this a glorious world.
Thank you all for kindness, well wishes, and most of all, for being you!
And may God Bless you today on this joyous, fresh, wonderful new day!
