My birthday is coming to a close - 46 years today - and I felt compelled to get in touch with all of you on SI. Firslty, thank you SI for being here for all of us. You are a blessing to me.

I thought of so many of you today in my prayer of thanks this morn for the people I have come to know as best as is possible on a cyber-site. Thought of you ((karmahappens)), blakesteele for all the prayers, sisoon, rebreather, brokensmile, bionic and catlover, SisterMShake and somanyears. Thought of Knightsbff, Jrazz, AML and rachelc. I hate to name names bc I know I will miss some but I thought of you and your kind words and encouragement over the past 14 months as that is when I joined SI - Feb. 2013.

My bday was pretty good all things considering. It was better then last year when I was having friends over and then asked them not to come and then told them to come back (the first year is tough!). But this kids walked in with a painting that they have been working on with their Dad - it made me cry bc it was so heart-felt and they gave it their all. My H gave me numerous pics of our family-life and some of my favourite things. We all went out for lunch and then had a nice dinner together just the two of us, meeting a couple friends later for drinks. I went for a 3 mile walk, spoke to family and friends and my dear parents who have been with me near or far since moment one. Thank God for them!

Today was kind of like a full life in a mere 12 hours and for this I am grateful. Could my life be better. Of course. Could it be worse? No doubt. But I am good today. I am grateful for my day.

Goodnight, all.

Happy Birthday
Glad you had a wonderful day.
Your posts always give me supporting advice.
/ days after my birthday was my DDay. I believe OW set it up that way, as WH was busy planning a surprise party for me.
I am not looking forward to this first birthday post DDay.
But hearing if your wonderful day shines hope that your can regain happier times. Enjoy your day

Happy Birthday, LA! So glad it was a good day---exactly how I would choose to spend my day!

Happy birthday friend.

I really enjoyed reading your thanks you have towards your parents. I vividly remember the point in time where they stepped up and where absolutely their for you....and supported your M. These are people who are of strong character.....and it shows through the person you are and at least explains part of where your courage and perseverance comes from.

They raised a beautiful woman and I am blessed for having my path cross yours.

@ catatonic, a positive attitude like that goes a long way each and every day but be sure to post more closer to your bday.

@Iwillnot, itsaclimb (great posts!) and brokensmile (I have some new follow up info. for you), THANK YOU!

@blakesteele - what can I say to that post? You brought tears to my eyes with that message. Good tears! Thank you.

Here's to a peaceful Sunday, all.

What a nice post! I am new to posting but I have learned so much by 'lurking ' this past year...
the folks you mentioned as well as yourself have been great 'voices' for me on this most incredible journey
Thank you and happy birthday...from a fellow Taurus!

You are such an inspiration. Rock this year!!

Went to church today and one of the last things Fr. said (new, young guy who seems pretty great) was that one thing he knows for sure is that we can get by so much better with the strength, support and encouragement of others. I immediately thought of SI.

Happy birthday to you too, hopefull77....Taurus' are stubborn (persistent).... but loyal!

What a nice thing to write forgivingnow.

Thank you, all!
