I can’t help but have the Beatle’s song going through my head today because it is, in fact, my birthday. 🙂 I have no vanity about it being only my day of birth, so I’m willing to share the joy with all the other brilliant Scorpios out there.
The reality of it is that this day is like any other, for the laundry doesn’t wash itself, nor the dishes. The sick child will need to be held all day, and I’ll keep hoping that my remaining milk is helping her eyes and that we all won’t get whatever she has. The deadlines remain, and I’ll have to clean the house yet again to restore it to the beauty it was before much of the family came over.
The blessing of this day, however, is that the stars have been
aligning, and my dreams have been potent. I consider birthdays personalized New Year’s, so I have a chance to begin anew on resolutions fallen by the wayside. Today I will be gentle with myself, encouraging, nurturing, and today my husband tells me he has a surprise in store. Today is unlike most days in that on this day several years ago, my spirit entered this world fully into this body. Hopefully each day I come closer to realizing my purpose, finding my calling, fulfilling God’s will.
Thank you, mom, for birthing me. Thank you, family, for the love and gifts. Thank you, Mother Nature, for the beautiful autumn colors that have remarkably lingered into November. This weekend was a beautiful Indian Summer.
May we carry a bit of the magic and love of birth into every day of our lives.
