My Birthday Wishes

Today is my birthday. I have many wishes. Safety and encouragement for those without a loving family. Warmth and nourishment for those without a home. Joy and light for those in a dark place. Compassion and empathy for those with critical or harsh intentions.

You may see my not-so-regular monthly wish lists and think I just like material goods, but not nearly as much as I love the simple joys like a slice of birthday cake with a candle, spending time with people I love, and seeing the little blessings life has to offer.

I hope you all have a holiday season filled with these moments for yourself and your loved ones.
