you say it's your birthday!

my sister Cassie, in all her beauty and love
It's one of those days today...where I woke up with a great deal of thankfulness...and one where I just wanted to be able to sit in my bed and relish in all the goodness in my life. And you, dear sister of mine, are a great big part of that goodness. Because in you I have a true friend...and that is something ever so valuable in this world. I am so excited for you in this season of your life...with change twirling around you like leaves picked up by the wind...and even more than that...I am filled with joy for the ways that you are embracing it all...standing with your arms open so that your heart is facing the sky. There are many great lessons that come with change...and I am eager to see how you incorporate those lessons into your life...breeding greater creativity and beauty. I can already see how much love has multiplied in your life...because it is inevitably pouring out of you as you walk your life path...touching people along the way.
I am so grateful to know you...to call you sister...to know you as friend. I have much confidence that this year will be one in which you expand more into your capacity...much searching, living and loving will be done...revealing the depths of the goodness in your world.
Here's to you and all of your new discoveries!
Happy, happy day...you are greatly loved!
