Birthdays


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?

Yes, birthdays are what we make them..but those little surprise gifts from special friends sure help make them memorable. Pretty sure you aren't spending enough time "writing" along with posting your pic...you are as gifted as our sister, Flan.
