It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Where Would I Rather Be ?

I know it is cold and I know it is messy and gets in the way of plans ... but I miss it :)
I miss being stuck in with no choice but to stay home and bake cookies.
I miss the children having so much fun then making them come inside and thaw out.
I miss the look of it.
Even alone in the house in Upstate NY .. the snow was so deep ! the trees bent with the weight of it piling up on the branches .. the footprints in the snow from deer coming through the yard .. the bird feeder busy with birds and later in the day, with deer.
Yes, deer ... they would eat the seed from the bird feeders.
Thus I felt it my duty to the deer and the birds to put out deer food .. luckily there were farms up the hill where you could see deer along with cattle, munching out in the field.
But here I am ... Sunny Florida ... and it is .. today is gorgeous.

I am in my pajamas and have nowhere to go and nothing to do.
I think I know where I would rather be ....

All Grown Up

I am a grown up.
A woman.
An adult.
No spring chicken.
It will soon be  my birthday   💥💥💥

When it comes to birthdays, while we complain about having them , age-wise .. I love them .. age-wise and everything else.
I lived another year.
I made it through a year of good times, bad times, sad times and some happy times.
I am well.
I am independent.... most of the time.

I get homesick for NY and I miss friends and family in NY but I am not suffering where I am.
I get lonely but what do you think cats are for ???

Someone in my family, younger than I , died the other night .. I am very aware of how lucky I am blessed that life and I are getting along well together ..

So while I love a good Birthday Party and I do love some good Birthday presents and sweets ..
I especially love the fact .. that I am around to celebrate and that someone thoughtful shared that with me ..

" Count your life by smiles, not tears "

Thank you 💕
