11:49 am - Feelin' a Little Sappy Today
Yes, it's my birthday, and I'm 60!! Wow! How did that happen? In many ways I feel just like a kid. But, I look at my skin, and it's clearly evident that lots of time has passed since those days. I generally feel great and, except for a stiff thumb joint, my body is working quite well. My yoga practice is making me feel loose and limber (for me, a chronic "stiffy") and I'm hankerin' to stay that way! Our band member, Gar, told me last night that I "have the vitality of a 30 year old". Now THAT is a compliment I want to continue to live up to! I just read a very sweet entry in my friend Jeannie's blog about what she loves about me, and I'm feeling quite sappy right now. Who wouldn't when someone heaps on the praises and appreciation? Thanks for taking the time to do that, Jeannie! It means alot to me. I just talked to Gabe who is in Boulder at a very intense yoga training (for the competition in February) doing, among other things, 40 backbends a day. He's sore, but feeling like a million bucks! So nice to hear from him! Everybody is being especially sweet to me today. I like birthdays!! Maya is making us lunch and my favorite cake, "6 Minute Chocolate Cake". Yum!! Grandpa Bob is patiently waiting around for the festivities. But, me.... I'm just savoring each moment as it comes. Each phone call. Each well-wisher. Each loved one. Noticing how perfectly wonderful my life is. Feeling grateful for the sun shining in my window. The warm breeze outside. My comfortable home. The abundance of good food on my shelves and in my fridge. Every need being met. Feeling perfectly cared for. It doesn't get any better than this! And though I imagine my birthday celebration will continue on for days in many little ways... I couldn't be any happier than I am at this minute, just feeling the overflowing love in my life.
