Not yet old but way past young I’m staring another birthday in the face still wondering where I fit in to this crazy world. Life is a mystery I’m unraveling as I go. In my heart I’m still a little girl looking for acceptance.
Memories of defining moments dotted throughout my life randomly flash through my mind at the oddest times. I never want to forget these memories because they make me who I am, for better or worse.
In this snowballing culture of greed and excess I strive to live my life simply and with compassion. Sometimes I satisfy my own expectations but other times I let myself down. That’s okay, I’ll keep trying. Every day brings another chance to try again.
I live a comfortable life and want for nothing. Possessions are nice to have but they are just things. The love of my husband, my three children and my little dog mean more to me than anything else in the world. These people give me purpose and make my life worthwhile. They make me laugh, love, hurt and swell with pride. They make me feel.
My wish is for people to take time to enjoy the little things that make them smile. A smile brightens everyone’s day. I’ve chosen some picture quotes reflecting messages I’d like to share with you on my birthday 26 June 2014.
