I would be remiss if I didn't do my usual birthday post.
It is my birthday!
Man...I do not know what to think about that. First of all, I am happy to be alive and here. I had no idea what I would be doing at age 51. Birthday #50 is always the birthday thought of, as it is a milestone birthday.
But who considers Birthday #51?
This has been a rather quiet day for me. I got up and prayed. I folded clothes. I attended virtual church and had communion (a pecan and some hibiscus tea in a shot glass).
I have been crocheting today. LadyTee dropped by and we had a visit with me up on the porch and her out in the driveway. She and her mother bought lovely flowers and cards.
I had a very good lunch. Salmon and yellow grits on a bed of veggies (kale, mushrooms, onions, cabbage, peppers).
It was good. I only ate half the salmon, though. That was too much salmon. Saved some for later this week.
I am not eating flour or sugar or processed food right now... BUT I did have some milk free, egg free carrot bread special for my birthday. It was good. Forgot what bread taste like, lol.
But it was a good day. And I always have some internal wisdom for the day.
What I have been thinking about as of late... especially in light of all the political shenanigans, and in other areas also...
There is my perspective, and there is your perspective...
and there is TIME.
TIME is the truth teller... always.
Let enough TIME pass, and we will find out the truth...
In TIME, every tree bears its fruit. The fruit of any and every situation is revealed in TIME.
That is the truth right there.
All day, every day.
I am looking forward to what year 51 has to offer. I pray for a great year. I pray that I have the courage to face my fears and starve my doubts. I pray for personal growth.
I pray to be better.
Year 51... here I stand.
