I'm not shy. I'm not going to pretend like I'm one of those modest 'who cares' folks that doesn't make a big deal about it because that would be a lie... and I don't lie. Well, not since my mum told me she could see my nose growing if I ever fibbed.
I'm not coy about it or believe that today's just another day. It's not! Today, I'm stoked. The singing phone calls, the friends, the family, the cake, the cake, the cake. I have so much to be grateful for and on this day I want to spend it saying Thank You! Thank You for the friendships, for the support, for the ongoing love. Thank you for checking in with me when you haven't heard from me in a while, thank you for making me laugh. And laugh and laugh. But most of all, thank you for being you! If I could hand you a fork and a slice of cake right now I would. You've given me a kind space for my inner most thoughts and mundane musings and you've made me feel less alone even when I've actually wanted to be.
I can't help shake the feeling that there's so much to look forward to... and that just maybe, it's right around the corner!
HIP HIP and loads of chirpy birthday love to all of you!
