I'm off to the ocean for the weekend. A pre-birthday celebration from my wonderful family. It is the big "60" for me and this year there was supposed to be a really special celebration (we had talked about Europe at one time!) with long-time friends but those plans changed. So, in jumped my wonderful daughters to make my day special. We celebrated last year, around this time, at a friend's house in Lake Tahoe for B. ------60 is such a milestone that it really needs to be celebrated and cherished for it truly only comes once in a lifetime. It makes me sad that I will not be spending the time with my long-time friends. Our lives have gone in different directions and misunderstandings happened that could not be discussed and thereby cleared up so this milestone will be different because of that. It makes me sad but it is kind of like a death in the family: you cry, you wonder why, you ask questions but get no answers, and all you can say is: that is life. Life is uncertain for many of us. I have no regrets though. I loved until the end with no malice in any of my thoughts and deeds.
And Janet: if you are listening please know that I am thinking of you, sending you healing white light thoughts and to you I say: I have nothing but kind thoughts of you and will love you forever. That's all a good friend can ever say. And you, dear Janet, are a wonderful friend. We've had many good laughs and many good times together. Life got in the way a few times, we drifted apart because of those changes, but we never once forget each other and still touched bases whenever we could. You are a great talent and I want you to fight for your life!
