lucky me


After some thought and reflection, I decided to throw myself a birthday party.

This because I realized that my 40’s were the best decade of my life because of the people in my life and because of the way they see me and believe in me. I also wanted to avoid others throwing me a party- I knew that more than a few were plotting parties and I just could not take any more kindness from these people who I feel give to me all the time.

As much as I wanted to celebrate me, I really wanted to celebrate them.

I wanted to get all the people who have been important to me recently and throughout my lifetime and pop them into my beautiful home. I reached out to many over the last months and tried to reconnect. I was amazed at how many were willing to come from great distances. Their attempts to do so were touching.

A committee was formed without my knowledge and a meeting was called and a few wonderful friends told me what they were going to do for my party. I love this forcefulness. This is who my friends and family are in my real and everyday life, not just before a party.

I don’t know if you understand how that feels. It is incredible. You never feel alone.

At my party I was on the ceiling with happiness. I was showing off my family, my old friends, my new friends, my children, my beautiful life.

Lucky me.
