It’s My Birthday Too, Yeah

Saturday, May 7th, 2005 • 4 Comments on It’s My Birthday Too, Yeah

So, it’s my 38th birthday.  I’m having a cookout tomorrow

later today.  It’s currently 44 degrees and rainy.  Of course.

There really isn’t anything I need and very few things I want, but it is the best feeling in the world to know there are people who would buy me the moon if they could and wish for me only happiness.  It is often startling to realize I am loved—you’d have to know me and my history to understand why—and that realization, that very remarkable feeling of belonging and comfort and not-aloneness, is gift enough.

However, I wouldn’t mind a little warmth and sunshine—just for today.

    The early report from the bed side is SUN!  It maybe a bit chilly, but I’m afraid to remove any covers at this point.  The cat’s nose is a little cool, however.

    I’m still trying to figure out the moon-gift.  I’d simply send you there, but you’d be missed!

    Happy birthday! Raining and chilly here too.

    I know that feeling… everyone is so busy with their own lives, so when something like a party happens, and you can see how genuinely people care about you, it can come as a shock.

    I baked some cookies in honor of your birthday.  Then I ate them all.
    They were tasty.
    Let’s do it again next year, shall we? smile

    Hope it was happy!
