{ Today is Sunday...}

...it is a beautiful day!!!

it is warm,
the birds are singing,
I am playing in threads,
...it is a Full Moon!!!

It is my Birthday!

I give thanks for being alive,
... to my Mother who chose to give me life~
for the chance to begin each day knowing I am where I should be,
...with a family that loves me!!

I give thanks for being gifted with
Good Friends
Busy Hands
a full Heart
a Generous Spirit
Good Health!!
I will celebrate today
by honoring my past years,
and looking ahead with anticipation of what may
lie ahead of me...
all the while being
for yet another year!!!
Thanks to you all, too, who keep me busy, thinking of new things to post here!!
it is wonderful to know that I have made a connection with so many of you,
and that you enjoy coming to visit me here on this blog...
Hoping you Celebrate Today, just as it is....
Blessings from the Farm,
