As expected, I got nothing. Had he been a quick thinker, he could have emailed me an image of flowers (either of a one-flower and greens bouquet or a monster-size bouquet), gotten a smile or a laugh out of me and made my day brighter.
Getting something was not the purpose of the exercise… because I realized someone who is bad with dates remembers my birthday most every year.
I have the best BFF in the world, a link to another human being, parallel lives, but opposite background and personalities, and still commonalities by the bucket full.
I have two extraordinary kids who, for all the worries I had about them when they were little, have pushed back their limits and made their mama proud of the young adults they are becoming.
I have love.
Every single day, I strive to choose the path of the righteous in every little thing. A life is built up one choice and one step at a time; seeds of love will grow into a harvest of love.
I have a purpose in life.
I get the opportunity to grow, to push back my own limits, to get out of my comfort zone once a in while and discover something new about myself.
I evolve and grow.
I believe in greater than me, in I am that I am.
I have faith.
