Amelia came to visit for my 40th birthday. When we moved to Canada, she warned us that she would not come during the winter, but it was easy to get her to make an exception. The weather was very warm-for-Canada while she was here, but no one could convince her that it was actually quite balmy out.
You are welcome, Jessica. Be encouraged. Your work is essential.
Thank you, Jessica, for your honest and bighearted assessment. Welcome to your forties. May it be a momentous and magical decade.
Happy birthday! Happy new decade! I know it must have been a little while back, but I hope you get the thrill of a few new birthday wishes through your sharing here. Thank you for the poem sharing on a big birthday idea. I way swipe it for my fiftieth this coming fall. Oh, what a big deal it is to ask for something. And get it. May you know your worth and receive the celebration of your circle of love and beyond. Cheers!
