“The more you praise and celebrate your life,
the more there is in life to celebrate.”
– Oprah Winfrey
This is my birthday week celebration and I want to share it with you ~ let’s celebrate, for we have today ~ let’s embrace The Presents of Presence as we feel gratitude for this day, for this moment in time that we share together. Come join me in celebrating our lives, our connections and our friendships! Let’s be grateful that we can enjoy this moment together!
I am grateful for so much in my life, even the hardships that I have endured. I am grateful for the happy and sad moments for they have taught me well. I am grateful for the strength that I have found within and the supportive friends and family who have helped me through many trying times. I am grateful to God for every breath that I continue to have and for the blessed life that I have lived thus far and I pray that I have many more years of life given to me. I am grateful for the willingness of myself and others to reach out daily through blogging, texting, phone calls, cards and emails etc. in order to support, love and connect with each other in order to increase the love in this world through kindness. I am grateful for every prayer. I am grateful for the angels who surround me and for meeting human angels along my path of life. I am grateful for my feline friends as well who give unconditional loving fur therapy when most needed (and even when not needed). There’s something about being loved by an animal which is precious as well. I am grateful for my mind, soul, heart and body which have endured breast cancer etc. and continue to thrive daily, even under unspeakable circumstances. I am grateful to Mother Nature for daily delivering such a beautiful dawn which inspires me, even when I feel under the weather. I am grateful as I count all of the blessings, big and small, in my life.
So today, please celebrate with me ~ celebrate your life, yourself and your connections with others both big and small. Celebrate your life well-lived and your present moment. Choose to feel the tranquility of gratitude, the quiet reminder that you are here~ perfect, whole and complete and you are appreciated for who you are.
For I am grateful to all of you!
You are a wonderful reason to celebrate!
And Happy, Happy Birthday week celebrations!

A friend told me today that he doesn’t see the glass half empty, or the glass half full – he sees the glass, for so many have nothing to drink from. I think of you like that – filled with gratitude for all the gifts in your life – like friendship. I’m over here in the midwest cornfields celebrating YOU, my friend.
Love the tidbit about the glass ~ what a lovely way to see life, don’t you think? Thanks for sharing it with me. I am always grateful for your friendship Vicki! Big hugs ♥
Feliz Birthday week! And – Feliz Every Day!
Bendiciones para siempre…
