How quickly another birthday has winged its way to its destination. The day itself lingers no longer than the flighty little Chickadee alights, grabs a single seed, and away it darts with its morsel. The years are on a lightning-quick trek now too. One zips into the next so quickly that I have a hard time keeping the seasonal decorations swapped out. My special day yesterday was just that---so very special. On the eve of
my birthday, Owls sang happy birthday to me at dusk. Yesterday, on the day of my birth, the Bald Eagle soared by writing birthday stories and greetings on the wind. Friends and family, both near and far, both old and new, joined in the merry-making of one very special day, creating memories of shared laughter and delight to be carried into the coming days, and hours, and minutes, to be pulled out and enjoyed whenever this birthday girl needs the minutes of daily life to be a bit brighter. Really, could any one hope for more on their own special day?
The main difference in yesterday and today is that today we are getting fresh snow on top of the ice---and the winds are 15 to 25 mph---we have been blessed with our power not going off the last two days but today may be a different story with the winds ripping through here.
