Today I Am grateful for the 500+ people whose lives I have touched enough for them to send me birthday greetings – be it in person, via phone or text or on Facebook. Even those whose connections to me are minimal at best, I know that each connection has an impact on me as well as on them. The truth is we are all connected, even when we don’t know it, and days like this allow me a better grasp on this Truth.
I Am also grateful for an amazing, memorable birthday with my boys, my sister and her family. The boys and I had a fantastic breakfast at Manny’s Diner in Clark (a most fantastic diner, if you’re ever in that area), then stopped by Washington’s Crossing – feeding into Jacob’s recent passion for studying the American Revolution. Later my brother-in-law smoked a couple racks of barbecue spare ribs and my niece baked a delicious vegan chocolate chocolate chip cake… while my sister fed me a steady flow of some fantastic red wine!
Finally I Am grateful for looking back on my 44th year, seeing all of the blessings I have received in terms of learning, growth, confidence, prosperity and especially love – for it is quite apparent that the greatest gift I have received this year has been my relationship with April! It has truly been one of the best years of my life, and I KNOW that it has been setting the stage for an even greater 45th year. I Am on the verge of making several dreams come true, and I now allow them to come into fruition with ease, grace, love and joy.
I Am looking forward to an amazing tomorrow, filled with love and joy, prosperity and abundance, creation and completion, new possibilities and new realities. I anticipate ending the day in complete satisfaction, knowing that only good is coming to me. It is going to be the best day of my life, and I Am grateful for tomorrow today!
And So It Is.
