A Bit of Birthday Eve Celebration


St Patrick’s Day

A day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic! -Adrienne Cook

So it’s gently snowing here ~ and I’m probably the only Jersey Gal who awoke before dawn, raced to the window to do a snow dance!  Woo Hoo!!!  I love SNOW!  I do, I just do.  It makes me so happy to look outside and to watch it gently fall to the earth!  I could watch snow fall all day long.  It makes me smile so big in my heart that my whole body tingles.  I don’t know why it is, but it happens every time.  I am always the one who goes out the door first when it’s snowed.  I love the quiet in the neighborhood, the hushed tones of the snow falling on the trees.  It’s breath-taking to me.  Long before hubby was ready to go to work, I had already cleaned off his car (we had about 3 inches ~ so far ~ it’s STILL snowing!) and my own with childlike gleeful abandon!

I know, you must think me crazy.  I don’t care quite frankly.  It’s also a great gift today to have snow because….it’s St. Patrick’s Day AND….it’s my Birthday Eve!  Woo Hoo!  If you know me in real life, you know that I adore my birthday.  I always have, but now it’s even more of a holiday in our home because I celebrate the fact that I am here, that I made it through another year!  It’s hard for hubby since he only gets his day and maybe the next 2 to celebrate his birthday because as soon as it’s BIRTHDAY EVE, I’m a cuckoo happy girl!  Just the thought of my birthday sends me into a tailspin of joy!

Lucky for me, my family rolls with it, or better said, they quietly roll their eyes at my antics.  But I don’t care!  It gives me such huge pleasure to celebrate my birthday.  I even tell complete strangers on my special day!  I think we all should delight in our birthdays.  After all, it is our special day!

So in honor of my Birthday Eve, I changed Julie Andrew’s song a bit, but I will leave you with her singing the right words (but check out my improved lyrics!) giggle giggle.

Pretty pink roses and cuddles with kitten
Bright rainbow skies and my blog has been written
Colorful packages all named for me
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream in my coffee on my birthday morning
Family is smiling and my heart is soaring
Blessings abound, I’m so blessed to be me.
These are a few of my favorite things

Good health is ours as is lottery cashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the tests come
When the smile fades
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And to all my blessings add!

Shine On!
