Birthday Gratitude

Today is my birthday. I awakened on the hide-away bed in my mothers basement, marveling at how & where the Universe places us at any given time.

I did not plan to celebrate my birthday with my two siblings and aging parents on my birthday … it's just the way it unfolded. As a matter of fact, we had planned something totally different – but then this happened to be the only weekend my siblings and I could arrange to come up together and so here we are.

It wasn't until I awoke this morning that the perfection of my being here on my 56th birthday dawned….
Here I am in my mothers home with my two beloved siblings – reminiscing over the past and discussing my parents future. What could be more appropriate than that? I love it. Thank you Universe for showing your love for me today.

Twenty eight years ago, the year of my first Saturn return, found me entering a new life -one free of drug addiction ….
and now, twentyeight years later and approaching my second Saturn return I find myself entering another level of freedom – this time from a
‘mental addiction” and the concept of a limited self.

As I took my morning walk I found myself singing the words to an old song in celebration of my own birthday. The words go …
“On the day that you were born, the angels got together and decided to create a dream come true ….” Oh to be able to realize how true those words ARE!

I picked a fully blossoming flower enroute and gifted it to my precious mom as a gift of thanksgiving for bringing me into this incredible life more than a half century ago.

The gratitude I feel is boundless – for a life abundant and the opportunity to appreciate it. To be fifty-six & filled with awe and love for a “me” named “Lynne”.

Happy birthday to a self that is limitless! Happy Birthday to me.
Blessings, Lynne
