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