11/22/11, The Year of Living Gratefully

That number sounds lucky, doesn't it?  It is lucky.  It's my birthday, and I'm here.

Did you know that when you tell people you would not give it back, not a day of fear, uncertainty, pain and grief, people look at you like you're crazy when you say you would not give it back.

That's where I am now.  What an amazing and blessed place to be.

Oh I'm crazy alright.  Crazy good.

I would not give it back.

I went from the Year of Living Dangerously, to the Year of Living Gratefully.

I would not give it back.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I would ever like to do it again, and I sure as hell would never wish it on you.

I'm just saying that who'd a thunk that God and the Universe would conspire to send me down a path that would change my life forever,

and send a thousand Angels and moments of grace that would completely change my heart and my mind about what happened to me.

Who'd a thunk I would ever say

I would not give it back.

It was a good day today, my 53rd birthday.

I made a wish as I blew out a single candle on a red velvet cupcake.

I don't even know where to begin to tell you all the things I am so grateful for, and all the Angels on my path who mean so much to me,

so let me just say

today and everyday,

I am grateful

for

another

breath.
