happy birthday to me (july 23, 2016)…

my sister was the very first to wish me a happy birthday. midnight montana time, eleven nevada time…

sarah was next, sending me a birthday wish at twelve-twelve…

my friend from st. petersburg, russia…living on the east coast, was next…sending me sweet birthday wishes…

hurricane ***a ***x was next, taking time away from her geological surveys, excavating, mining operation, and sunbathing poolside, in ghana…to call me, whisper in my ear, and sing me, “happy birthday,” in her awesome accent. she absolutely promised to make me a sugar-free/carb-free cake…next year…

jenny was next…i didn’t even know, that she knew it was my birthday…

grace was next, sending me a super-sweet birthday text…and then, she took the time to call me, but i missed her call. we are planning a  “thelma and louise,” roadtrip…ending in colorado, to get really freaking creative…and collaborate on something…

wendy was next. she was super sleepy, and hadn’t had her coffee yet…but, she wished me a happy birthday…

and then, it was richard’s turn…

i fed karen her shredded wheat, and she looked at me, and asked how i was doing. i told her that it was my birthday, and that i am another year older, and trying to deal with that. she grabbed my hand, smiled, and gave me a big hug and kiss…

my dad actually sent me a text, that said, “hey kid, happy birthday.”…

paul also shocked me pleasantly by wishing a happy birthday…reminding me that i was due for a “fuck the world day,” like me and his father, david, used to have. a “fuck the world day,” entails doing the opposite of everything that is expected of you…

then, i received all of the well wishes from my lovely friends, and family on facebook…

and just a few minutes ago, my friend, ki, sent me a funny birthday text…

with each and every birthday that passes, i am always amazed at how truly blessed i am. i am grateful for each and every person who chooses to be in my life, and walk this journey with me.

i am also grateful for the ones, that have chosen not to stay in my life…as i have experienced new things, grown as a person, learned lots, and have changed greatly. they helped me, to help myself…for that i am eternally grateful…and, i will always have enough room in my life, and love in my heart, for you…
