What Counts

WhatCounts“Count your age by friends, not years.

Count your life by smiles, not tears.”

~ John Lennon

I love my birthday week ~ the birthday eve, the birthday itself and then following days which I find blissful.  I have always loved my birthday and I can only say that it’s become more precious to me as the years pass.  Probably because I continue to be so grateful that I am still here after all I’ve endured.  I find the dawn most pleasant for the new day ~ the optimism which embraces me as I rise to greet the morning.  I love dusk as well, for as I prepare to lay my head on the pillow, I hold most sacred that I have tried to be a good person (and if I haven’t, then I ask forgiveness).

I have been blessed with an abundance of birthday greetings which nestle into my heart to hold for the coming year.  Knowing that I have had so many sweet people take a moment out of their busy lives to say hello and wish me well has swollen my heart and soul with so much love!  My heartfelt thanks to all of you! ♥

I love the above quote which I got via email from Contagious Optimism today.  How perfect for me to share today!  I begin my mornings by reading a few positive emails from different places and this is one of my favorites!  You can sign up to receive a quick inspirational quote every morning from them.  Make sure you take a moment to check them out!  Just a little tidbit of positivity for you!

May you find peace within today and always.  May your lives be filled with love and joy.  May you feel blessed, for you truly are.  Thanks for connecting with me.  You are simply the best!

Shine On!
