birthday

After that last post, particularly the "this is a Cadiz post, of course" bit, I decided to take the advice of some of you to revamp my attitude.  Some of you remember the failed "no complaining" experiment of 2006. But today is a day of birth and rebirth, so we're going to give it a go. This year will (hopefully) be about focusing on the positive.

I am so thankful for all the love and support in my life. And, as always, it's always the little things that say the most.Yesterday our volunteer, Susan, brought homemade red velvet cupcakes into the office before I clocked in. They nearly disappeared almost as soon as she set them down, so not one but three different people grabbed one and set it aside so I'd be sure to get one when I got there. And that doesn't include the one my mom had.

When people can keep a red velvet cupcake on their desk and refrain from eating it, just for you? Damn, that's love. And don't get me started on my family and friends. You guys are all the best.

There is a short list of people for whom I would refrain from eating a cupcake. That IS love.

Happy birthday! I hope you didn't have to work. Or at least, not work too hard.

Yes, that IS love! You're a lucky gal, Cadiz.

This reminds me that I must start counting my blessings again because I've been grumpy about things recently.

I'm going to work on visualizing what I want too.

Happy, happy birthday.
