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
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 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 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.

  1. Happy Birthday Week; i hope it is grand!

    Some of my favourite people were born in November: both of my parents (16th & 19th), the lovely lady after whom i am named (28th), as well as both of my sons (24th & 30th).

  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.

  3. Yay! Birthday week!! I hope you have a wonderful day!

  4. Happy Birthhday....I realize aging is out of my control­čśĹ Hope you have a great week, the frost is a bonus!
