Beloved...

My birthday was on Monday. I had so many greetings on Facebook, I haven't even had a chance to read them all, yet. I went to breakfast with 3 friends; & saw my work people before. Spent the afternoon with some special people, got a long-distance phone call. Got some texts; had a party at my Women's Group - WITH PEPPERONI PIZZA CAKE!!! Am totally embracing my birthday "season". Having dinner with friends & spending time with my Mother & Seester - know what/how I'm feeling??! Beloved!!! I used to have a sense of "false" modesty about my birthday. You were grateful; but you kept it down-key. Monday, I told anybody & everybody it was my birthday - & just made the most of it, & will continue. Sure, all I did was be born - but aren't we all special & beloved just for that??! It's taken me 53 years to get there - here's to 53 more??! Ooph!!! Ok, reality check - but just make the most of your "beloved-ness" EVERY day; NOT just on your birthday!!! Have a good day & be safe...
