My day of birth is wrapping up and it has been one of the best I have had. Two of the people closest to my heart co-conspired to throw me an intimate party. Those whom I love dearly were present. We drank. We ate. We drank. We played games on the Wii. And we drank some more. (Patron is mother's milk, I don't care what you say.)
To you guys: I can't express enough in word or action how much you mean to me. I don't know what I did in my previous lives to deserve your presence but I am so very grateful that you are all here.
To those who were there in spirit: See above.
And to those who sent me messages (including a certain recording artist), thank you so very much. Getting older isn't easy but you certainly help the transition be less painful.
I hope that each and every one of you continue to be an active presence in my life for the rest of my life. I can honestly say that I am more enriched because of you.
P.S. - To Cameron and Mitchell ... I love you both. That's really all I think I need to say. You understand the rest.
