It’s my birthday today and I’m lazing it away in the best way possible. I thanked God ahead of time (around 1 am this morning) for waking up. LOL. I’ve read a book, chatted a bit and am now updating my sites and thanking my numerous online friends for their felicitations.
Oh, what about the cards and the presents? I received and opened those early. The family (except for my mom and me are all in Trinidad & Tobago, the land of my birth). The new picture shows off my new haircut courtesy of my daughter. We had a “ma and me” day last week Tuesday. I traveled to New York and realized that I was getting a small town mentality. There were skads of chesteses falling out of tops (the new style, I was informed) and I was horrified!
Also, every three minutes or so I would stop dead in the middle of conversation and lose my train of thought. Why? Men! They were everywhere in all different shades from pink to deep mocha chocolate. The pickings over here in Smalltown, PA are slim to non-existent so I didn’t know how to act. My daughter thought I was hi-larious.
Anyway, I feel that I should have some deep thought to share. After all I’m 42 today and they keep telling me that wisdom is a by product of age. However, all I keep coming up with is gratitude.
I’m estactic that my daughter graduated from college and has a job! (I’m also thrilled to have one myself… lol), I’m grateful that no matter how bad life gets at times, I continue to learn and grow–to adjust. I’m grateful that my gifts are supporting me, so I’ll continue to write and create. I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with teens, the next generation needs all the help they can get, and I’m wired to almost remain an unaging teen myself. But most of all I’m just grateful to be here.
