Dear One, (You know who you are)
Congratulations on this life-milestone. Congratulations on what you have come through and what toward. Congratulations on being connected. Although you walk, you do not walk away from your life journey.
There are other crossings when we all step away from our life and look on at a safer distance, binoculars in hand, because not to would bring the apocalypse, or at least frizzy hair.
At this time we see that you are more than a spectator, more than a narrator or a newscaster, not a stranger to yourself described in shame-filled words and judgment, as if you were the sum of right or wrong. You are, at this intersection, more than your performance, behaviors and emotions. You are. You are more.
Some other day, you may find your binoculars again. You may need them, and that is what it is. Not good or bad. For our part, we will celebrate you then too.
We are blessed. All this that you are is a benediction for us; the walking, breathing wonder of what comes from Love. We, as might anyone connected to Magic, bless you in return.
“Keep evil away. Keep walking in Love. Bless.”
Congratulations for your proximity to what is difficult, for working hard to love yourself, for finding your specialness in more than what hurts in you. You are special.
You are special, like a seed or a grown and aging tree. You are special, like San Francisco is in summer or Australia at Christmas. You are special, like the worst of us. Like the best, you are special for more than your imperfections.
You stand, with us, just left of center. We celebrate you.
Self-Care Tip: Live a celebrated life.

I love this and love you for what you have given us through this blog. Celebrating being a friendtomyself by becoming the ACTIVE artist that I have always wanted to be. Actually have an image that has been juried into a calendar which is being sold at the national Colored Pencil Society of America convention in Brea this summer…and I will be attending the convention, thanks to my husband’s generosity. So excited!! Never thought, when I was in my darkest of places twenty years ago, that I’d be willing to attend a convention alone!! Learning to be a friend to myself has given me this gift and I couldn’t be celebrating more or be more grateful to you and my friendtoyourself friends!!! Bless you all!!
