Last weekend I kicked off the love-spree with a patio date with hubby, lunch with my MIH, and time with the ninety-something grannies. I made spaghetti and meatballs for my little sis and I and Kidlet joined us for a little chin-wag. We chatted and laughed between noodle slurps and sips of wine and got caught up properly. I love those times when the worries and busy-ness of the day falls away and we slip effortlessly into the cosy, sisterly, cocoon of comfort and familiarlity that comes with sharing a room - and a life.
So that long-winded preamble takes me to this week! Lots of plans and more importantly - a time to reflect. My weekly giving has been chaotic and sporadic - but I am back on track. My purpose is clear - live to give (in all ways possible). So this week I declare my birthday a time to plan my giving and count my blessings. this week I will donate my age (52) to a sustainable cause (soon to be announced).
As I reflect on the life that I was blessed to be born into and create, my heart will be filled with gratitude. Now - let the party begin!
