Nothing like birthdays to make you think, right?! Especially this year. There is change a foot – I feel it. The world is doing a spectacularly weird dance of hope and terror. I feel shaken loose. Probably a good thing. So I’ve made a few birthday resolutions on this June the first – and the first is to follow my own advice and do all five of my recommended actions below every day that I can. Today the expressing gratitude one is easy – I had a very special and amazing birthday with more to come. I am grateful to my friends for grape pie and babies and my brother and sister-in-law and the kids for knowing how to be a family!
