If I told you what I had on today's agenda, you might accuse me of lying -- it was that crazy and convoluted and awful. But I'm here, at the other end of it, and I'm alive. Isn't that something to sing about?
I'm learning learning learning to let go and be present with what is, and accept that life is often oh-so-messy...and its not going to get easier as I get older ( like I stupidly thought at twenty.) But I'm gaining in wisdom and that is all I've really ever asked of God and this life. I want to gain in wisdom every day and trust the incredible process that our human lives afford us.
Today is my mom's 70th birthday. She'll probably kill me for outing her like this. But I'm sharing it because she is my best friend, my most committed cheerleader and my favorite cook all in one. She's had a hard life, and trudged on through without complaint. She stayed faithful and with her eyes on God the whole time. I admire her for that. Plus, she makes 70 look like a piece of cake, so I'm looking forward to it!
I love you mom.... Happy Birthday and thank you for loving me so much. I'm lucky to have you:)
