birthday girl


be grateful to have been given one more day,

let alone one more year.

remember to dance in your nightgown,

sing in the shower,

ride a bike,

fly a kite,

and take an occasional "wind bath" in your bare skin.

give those you love big kisses,

huge hugs,

and the words "i love you" often and always.

nurture your body rather than starve yourself with fad dieting.

spend time with the old and the weary to better appreciate your life.

on your birthday,

call your mother and father wherever they are

to thank them for all that they have done for you.

watch the movie "life is beautiful" at least once a year.

remember that you are not guaranteed tomorrow

and that today is as good as it gets.

thank God for everything,

every day,

every moment.
