Some friends who bless our lives are life-long treasures.
I feel that way about a dear soul I met in the southwest during one of the most difficult times of my entire life.
When she came into my world, it felt like an angel had finally arrived to give peace to my soul and it's been that way ever since.
Truly, she is just like a sister to me.
Even when I moved 3,000 miles away, our friendship continued with long-distance phone calls and enough all occasion cards, throughout the years, to fill several baskets.
It even continues to this day!
Of the hundreds of things she taught me, one was to celebrate your birthday not just on the day you were born but for the entire month!
At first I thought that was impossible to do but guess what? It's not.
As a matter of fact, it's fun!
September is my birthday month and two people who know I celebrate all month long have already given me gifts.
A sweet and dear friend came over right on September 1st with a birthday card and a bouquet of lovely white and yellow flowers. She made the arrangement herself!
So now it's September 5th and I can't wait to see what the rest of the month will hold!
Right now, I feel so blessed and filled with gratitude to be alive!
After all, life, itself, is a miraculous gift and every day we wake up and are still breathing is a day to celebrate!
DO YOU CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY ALL MONTH, TOO?
IF NOT, WOULD YOU LIKE TO?
