I felt truly blessed today.
Another lockdown birthday, and yet the surprises, presents, messages, phone calls, serenades and dedications kept me warm and fuzzy from all winter colds and extended lockdown news, keeping me so busy I could barely keep up all day.
But it was even better, because I celebrated it all, times two.
Baby girl and I share our birthdays on the same day. We did what we could, walked the almost empty streets, ate lunch by the water in our cars, and got some takeaway cake, ice cream and coffee.
It was a super splendid day, and you know what?
At a time when things have felt really super shit, I’ve questioned a lot, felt withdrawn and upset by lots in life… this is what I needed. A day where I really truly, felt the love.
I felt it all, and it was so warm, so caring, so welcoming. I was truly humbled to tears.
I know, no matter what life throws at me, there are people out there who care about me.
And that matters more than anything.
Reach out to those around you, let them know how you feel. You don’t even have to wait for their birthday… you may not know how much they need to hear your beautiful words. 💖💖🙏🙏
