Thank you…

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!

Sincerely,

Phil
