Today Is A Special Day

Yes, today is a special day for me. Like most important days in my life, I will be introspective and quiet and amazed at all this day means. But this "special day" has extra significance to me.

Today is my birthday.

Today I turn (eek!) 49 years old.

Could someone slow the ride down just a tad? I mean, I'm having a wonderful time, but Holy MOLY, things are blazing by me pretty fast.

Today I begin the last year of my forties. Man, oh man!

Some people my age are grandparents. I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do and BE when I grow up. Why am I so far behind the curve? What in the Hell am I doing?!?

Well, I'm doing the best that I can. I am being myself. I am trying to accept my place in The Pattern and work WITH it, instead of against it. I have a heart full of Love that I am determined to share with those I meet along the way. The ones I don't want to kill, that is.

I make ridiculous mistakes, nearly daily, but I try to not beat myself up over them. I am impatient, and loud, and WAY too self-involved.

And, I hope to do better for my forty-ninth try at it.

Do you feel your age? Are you amazed at how old you are?

Happy birthday!

I'm a bit younger than you are, but I can definitely understand where you are. I never have any idea what it is I'm supposed to be doing, and I often wonder if anything will ever make sense.

I don't know if I feel my age or even what I'm supposed to feel. I'm really hoping to figure it out some time or other. Maybe the fast approaching new year will be the one where I get all the calculations right.

Happy birthday darlin.

For your birthday I'm sending you a link to the gayest guy I've seen on the web.

And no, I can almost never believe I'm my age.

Never.

Hugs, kisses, love....
