happy happy joy joy

Today is my birthday (weeee!) and I'm feelin' the love. Awoke to a special zoom birthday song from Andy, phone calls from loved ones, and so many sweet emails and notes on Facebook that remind me of all the love and joy to be found in the world. I also treated myself to a total chick flick after teaching this morning. At the movies. On a Thursday. At 11:30. On my birthday....yay!

I'm giving myself some space to ponder the next year and what I hope and dream for. Perhaps a little stroll to Starbucks with the wee bit o sunshine making it's appearance and a toe that's feeling better everyday. I even did Sun Salutations today minus chaturanga and up dog. Happiness.

Found this poem, thought it be appropriate for today. And every other day too. ;) Cheers to you friends. I'm delighted to "know" you in the small and big ways that I do.

I asked God if it was okay to be melodramatic
and she said yes
I asked her if it was okay to be short
and she said it sure is
I asked her if I could wear nail polish
or not wear nail polish
and she said honey
she calls me that sometimes
she said you can do just exactly
what you want to
Thanks God I said
And is it even okay if I don't paragraph
my letters
Sweetcakes God said
who knows where she picked that up
what I'm telling you is
Yes Yes Yes
