MIAGD: Make it a great day
I’ve a ton of writing and research to be doing at this moment but I’ve decided to wade through the voluminous birthday greetings on Facebook.
Yesterday’s “back at the starting line” for this next sprint around the sun, or life’s cross country meet, was exhilarating. It was also quite humbling to receive so much love in various ways. I’m beyond grateful.
Per tradition since leaving for college in 1983, Mother called me at 6:03 PM to sound the starting gun for the newest sprint.
This morning I was permitted to sleep until 8:00 AM and I welcomed the additional hour.
It rained most of yesterday and several times through the night. Everything feels damp.
Breakfast is done and the pooches have gathered around me in the guest bedroom. The Sisters are scrunched next to me on the bed, Chief is laying lengthwise next to the bed, and Erma is at the foot of the bed, partially in the hallway so she can ceremoniously greet any newcomers to The Haasienda.
Now, to read through the birthday greetings and to make it a great day.
PHOTOS: Chief, Harrigan, and Erma were watching a video on my computer monitor. Chief was so focused he didn’t mind me taking photos.
