Giving ~ Day 14


It's my birthday week.
Happens around this time every year ~ funny that.
I can always feel it coming,
even if I'm ignoring the calendar,
because the weather turns frosty.

I enjoy waking up on frosty mornings.
I love when the sun casts it's early light across the sugar coated yard.
And everything sparkles!
I'm always dazzled.
I dare say it's better than
{cough cough}
56 candles on a birthday cake!

I'm going to celebrate this week ~ 
gather family and friends and make it all about me.
Just cause I can.
And because gathering family and friends is
always
a grand excuse to celebrate!



From this morning's journal: 

Give Away: All thoughts of wrinkles, weakness and fatigue. My current plan is to age well. I'm working extremely hard in many areas of my life to assure success in this area...so today I will quickly reject all worries that come with the thought that I am now closer to 60 than 50. Yikes! 

Give Access: to encouragement...to words of affirmation. I will drink them in. I will believe them. I will allow my cup to fill up this week. Yes I will.

Give Thanks: For the ups and downs, the good times and bad. Today I give thanks for all pieces of my journey that have led me to this day.

  2. Growing old gracefully is my goal. Sixty was my year of freedom. That's when I let my silver hair be a hint of wisdom and a clue to others that I won't turn down a little help from time to time ;)
    Your 'days of giving' are a bright spot - thank you.
