I'm 61 today! I'm 61 today! What a glorious age. How wonderful to be here, in this day and age and celebrating this wonderful birthday.
I can honestly say that I love every laugh line, every worry line, what ever age has delivered.
I hope that I have achieved a little wisdom along the way.
I hope that I have learned compassion and understanding.
I hope that I have practiced forgiveness and gratitude.
I hope that I have lived in the moment as much as possible.
I hope I have told everybody how much I appreciate their love and support in helping me become the person I am right now and I look forward to what I am to become.
I hope that those that didn't live this long have passed over into their true purpose and journey.
I hope that I stop to notice a flower a long the path, look deeply into the eyes of those around me and see their true light and love.
I hope that when I stumble on the path that there are those that will lovingly help me up, brush me off and give me a pat on the back.
I hope that what love and light I can offer to the world is received and helps.
I hope that I remember, at all times that although I might be lonely, sometimes, I am never alone.
I hope I remember my manners, values, who I really am as I travel the path.
I hope that I always have time to offer a helping hand, shoulder to lean on, handkerchief to dry an eye, a smile and words of hope to those that need it.
I hope that I'm not the weakest link in humanities chain but if I see the weakest link I wrap my arms around them and hold them tight.
I hope that I have my twenty summers and more to enjoy my wonderful children, their mates and my grandchildren.
I hope that I can make a difference in my little corner of the world and if I don't that I at least don't make it worse.
When I turned 50 I sat outside, at dusk, on this property, before we had built our house. I released 50 white balloons, one at a time, into the air.
With each balloon I released a wish or prayer, with love.
I didn't write them down but it's amazing to me how many of them have come true.
Now, I know better than to release balloon into the sky.
So, no balloons and you don't have to read 61 different hopes. I think the ones above pretty much sum up this year's thoughts.
I thank you for your well wishes, in advance.
The tile is done, the floor is beautiful and I can now start taking things up to the new studio. A new chapter has begun. I am very excited, happy and grateful. This didn't just happen. Zeus valued my needs and created a space for me to create. I am ever so grateful to him.
So, everyone, have a wonderful day, I KNOW I WILL. Thank you all for taking the time to stop by. You are appreciated very much.
Go Create! :)Bea
P.S. I'm including this link to a beautiful video that probably will make some of you cry but I think it's worth watching.
