Rebirth

I had a birthday yesterday. A thirty-eighth one.

My therapist asked me if I ever thought that at thirty-eight I'd have a partner and two kids and a house and stable employment, and freedom to be creative. I told her I never really thought about it.

To be honest, six months ago, I didn't expect I'd live to see my thirty-eighth birthday.

What I do know is that I am blessed. Every day. Some days when I am drowning, the blessings in my life are the only things that put one foot in front of the other. Most days, my cup runneth over.

I floated through the day carried along by birthday wishes from friends and family. And cupcakes.

Thank you for sitting shotgun on this sometimes crazy ride.

A very, very happy birthday to you.

I'm glad you're here.

(or, you know, *there,* but you know what I mean...)

May there be many many more happy days to come.

Very glad you have your family and friends! HAPPY BIRTHDAY FROM GERMANY!!

Just moving takes a toll. Severe stress on top of that, and a predisposition for depression? No thank you. I'm shuddering as I type.
