Candles and Cake

Time and Tide wait for no man,
but time always stands still for a woman of thirty.
– Robert Frost

But not for me.  And I think I am glad of it.  I am 31 today.  There was a time when I thought that was old 😀

This year has as all others brought me lessons, hard and easy to learn, sweet and bitter, forgotten immediately and those that will stay with me as far as my memory…

I lost people and found souls;

I learned and

I climbed

Even as I fell and scraped my elbows and knees

For this year, may  the Almighty preserve my sense of self and allow me to see through successfully all that I need to do for myself, my family and maybe even the world at large.

I want to find faith and wisdom…

… And some of the parts of myself that I’ve lost along the way.

And as Garfield says, “For a day, it is nice to have the world revolve around you…”  (So long as it doesn’t make you dizzy!)

Cheers!
