Birthdays are such significant days. Not because we get cards and gifts but because it completes another cycle of life for us. And, I look at the day following my birthday as a clean slate to start the next cycle around the sun.
This year has been mixed with family, friends, plans that didn’t work out and culminated with hundreds of birthday wishes on social media and a birthday dinner with immediate family.
My daughters and son-in-law had planned a hot air balloon ride to celebrate my birthday, but the weather didn’t cooperate. We’ll do it at some point. It’s been on my bucket list for a while.
I am blessed abundantly with a loving family and an incredible circle of friends. I have no complaints.
A huge thank you to everyone who sent birthday wishes! Here’s to another year!
And, as I promised, I have chosen a winner from my last post to receive a copy of “Hemingway.” Annette Rochelle Aben, I truly hope you enjoy it!
Annette, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a good email address to receive your gift.
It is with red-faced embarrassment I realize I never drew for a winner of the poetry book, Discovery from my April post.
Could it be that perhaps I am trying to juggle too much? Nah! Never. 🙂
Anyway, the winner of the eBook format of Discovery – Poetry and Art by Rick and Jan Sikes is none other than TINA FRISCO.
Tina, watch your email. The book is on its way and I sincerely hope you enjoy it.
Meanwhile, back to your regularly scheduled program…
