5 winter wishes

It was my turn to blow out the candles
for another birthday yesterday, but this year
you get the wishes, k?
I wish you the wonder of children.
No matter what your age,
may you notice the
magic of these

 the beauty of nature,
 and the sweetness
of the season.


I wish you deliciousness.
May you sample
the tastes of
the holidays,
discovering new treats,

and savoring the warmth of the past.

I wish you fashion to thrill the senses.
Whether your idea of high drama
is a mile-long train,
RESERVED for Stacy K
a cape with hand-formed ruffles,
or a simple LBD

with killer pumps...
mix it up with pieces that make
your dreams come true
(our specialty at One Girl).

I wish you friendship.

“Friendship is born at that moment
when one
person says to another:

'What! You too? I thought I was the only one.'”

C.S. Lewis


I wish you a safe journey.
Wherever life is taking you these days,

may you enjoy the trip
in good company,
knowing there is always
light ahead.

This year on my birthday, I get to
experience new clarity about how far I have come
and all the good that is in store since I believe:
 "Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." ~Leroy "Satchel" Paige

 and also:


"You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope,
as old as your despair."
 ~Douglas MacArthur
