Happy Spring everyone! Hoping for more peace and love to keep us connected together during such turmoil in the world.

My sister and friends are throwing me a party on my 60th Birthday!

I'm looking forward to my Birthday party.  It will be the first Birthday party thrown for me in the last 15 years!!...and I'm finally up for a celebration.  I will blow out 6 candles only though, not 60!  I hope all my friend will be able to fit into my small apartment...not enough chairs, so some will be sitting on the floor.  My sister has been putting the party together and I don't have to do anything she's a first...I just get to sit back and relax!  I've mostly spent the last 15 of my Birthdays alone and every once in a while I would buy myself a little cake and put a candle on it and sing happy birthday to myself...I was okay with that though...I've learned being on your own for so long to embrace the silence and precious time to myself...I still need this and always will...but I am looking forward to knowing I actually have true friends and that I have my sister in my life now.  Kind of a real little family in my life now.  A definite reason to celebrate!
