It's my birthday. It's my birthday.
All I can say is WOW. It has been quite a jubilee year. Lets review.
Yes, I planned a lot of my jubilee year. You need to do that because if you don't, life will just pass you by.
But there were many many serendipitous moments in my jubilee year. Every day wonders. I wrote in my journal..."The best moments of my life don't make it to social media."-patience pennington.
I know those moments, and didn't feel the need to share it socially. Like for instance, snowflakes that fell from the sky looking more like soap flakes! Or, seeing a shooting star and making a wish. Or...watching an eagle as it soared. These are here-now wonders. Life wonders. And I don't want to miss any of it or take it for granted. I hope I learned that this year. Wonders.
And so today starts a new chapter. I am so grateful I get to turn 51 today. The day is mine to do whatever I want. I live in the tundra and most things I was planning to do, I can't because so many things are closed due to the polar vortex! Yep. That's a thing here. Polar vortex. I don't understand all the science behind it, but I know for sure...it's FREAKING cold!!! It's best to stay put. And so even in this cold, I'm thankful. I get to write and read and imagine the possibilities ahead.
51. I'm liking it already.
