What fun birthdays are that are "significant" and end with a zero! Like moving through a plate of fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies, laughing manically, crying healing tears, comforting and being comforted, snow close down on the hills, and a new awareness of why Christmas doesn't start until after LC's birthday!
Maybe a new decade scrolling in front of me makes me maudlin. Maybe now that Winter has finally made its Presence known, I am contemplative. I do know that I am grateful for all that is, right here and now, none of which I am in control. He he he, not to say I didn't try!
Couple more of these birthdays, and I won't even think of trying to control anything! Yeah!
Mmmm, thank you!
