*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Because today's so special it really wouldn't do, to send one simple birthday wish to last the whole year through... So this wishes happy moments, a day when dreams come true, and a year that's filled with all the things that mean the most to you. Happy Birthday!
This is the wonder: that of all the days of the year, the most important one is the everyday.
The everydays that are the most days of the year. These, the most days of our lives.
I think about these everydays that have me taking sun-dried sheets in off the line
or shoveling snow, these are the important days.
Everydays when I trip over excited little dogs
and the laundry mounts into its very own range and I finally think of something to make for dinner
when the head's weary tired and a wonderful aroma fills the air. All this.
This is the sacred everyday. I can miss it. How holy the moments are. How do we find ways to somehow live awake to the astonishing, ordinary wonder of all this? How do we find ways to somehow live so that everyday is consecrated?
We must find ways. For the ways we live our everydays is the way we live our lives.
and thanks for the everydays that you make into holidaze in my life! xxxo
