It was a wonderful birthday!
Wow, thank you to everyone who called, sang “happy birthday”, texted, emailed and posted on Facebook today. The love was sure flowing. It was a great way to turn 37!
This morning I headed down to the park for a run, with thoughts of my mainland friends and family dancing in my head.
Later, we made a couple of shopping stops later and then enjoyed dinner at Miyo’s. I truly love everything about that place.
The vibe is so mellow, and when the musician sang “happy birthday” to Charlie ( whoever Charlie was), I enjoyed it too. The very next song was “you are the Sunshine of my life “. I was pretty much eating it up.
The food was awesome. Teriyaki beef, sesame chicken, sashimi, shrimp and vegetable tempura, and fried oysters.
All I know is that in the midst of it all, I felt so present, so appreciative and so aware of the perfection of these simple moments that ultimately add up to a life.
It was a happy birthday, indeed. 🙂
