Today is a gift….a true present…….not just because it is my 61st birthday……but because I believe that I have been blessed with another chance to doing something great…..making a difference! 

I love the word “present”……  I love the thought that the point of power is in the “present” moment.   As I sat early this morning contemplating my “special day”…..I opened my meditation book and read the QUOTE of the Day…… “I am not what I want to be, I am not all that I could be, but, thank God I am not what I used to be”  

 I love the quote from Albert Einstein, “The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” We are each given the ability to “recreate” ourselves each and every day.  

As I sit here today, I imagine life as a “buffet” where, instead of food, there are “dishes of thoughts”, and we get to choose the ones we want.  Since these thoughts will be our future experiences, why not choose ones that will enhance our lives? I look at life as one long opportunity to learn and grow.  

I love my birthday, because it comes in the spring……I love the spring because it allows us to walk out (for me….. it is to “ride out”) in nature more frequently. And to see the beauty around us and allow it to point out the beauty within each of us. Just as new growth is spouting around us; know that all of life is supporting us in our blossoming. 

Not just today, because it is my birthday….but I truly relish each and everyday as an incredible gift…. a true “present.” I honor and celebrate each step of my sacred journey of my incredible life!
