birthday gifts… and a birthday winner

these were the blossoms
after the storm last night…
the storm that has been brewing
in my heart, deep within
came out in gale force winds
in the wee hours
suffice it to say…
 I am not aging well

so this morning…
this huge gift
a reminder of the huge ways
he loves me
because he thinks more is always better
and I love him for it

eighteen years together,
boundaries, property lines, and fences
have blurred beyond recognition,
a birthday for me 
and gifts for both of us
new running shoes for him
and books for me…
we are both happy

and tonight
a cookout and homemade ice cream 
shared with the love and laughter
of friends…

everyday is a gift
and it doesn’t get any better than this!

unless, of course, it’s winning…
you’ve won the giveaway
and you’re right
books are the best gift, anytime!
