Happy Birthday to me!

Well, here am another year older today! It's great to be here!!
I received cards from several friends- Bobbie Lou, Brenda, Nicole, Mary Edna, Doris & Al. Thank you dear friends!

I made up a little poem and sent it to all

Some say I am confined to wheelchair
But I don’t think they know
That though my body is affected
I still am on the go.
I go to visit those I love
And walk to market place;
I tread the woods until it rains
And then the rainbow trace.
Of course my body cannot always go
For it’s been restricted for days,
But who would say paralysis confines
A soul and mind that dreams and prays?
Although my body sometimes lets me down
Through days of darkest night,
My spirit soars on wings of prayer
And moves with speed of light.
In dreams and prayer I visit those I love;
Great is the gift of prayer;
And when my thoughts are beamed toward you
You’ll sense my presence there.


I love this time of year when the Azaleas are in bloom. My neighbors have large bushes that have grown without being trimmed and constrained. To my eye those are the most beautiful.

Happy Spring to all!
