today

Thirty nine is a rather caustic number, sort of edgy and rough.  The nine speaks of something ending and something hanging on and something unknown around the corner.  It's prophetic really, rather sums up how I feel about a lot of things right now.

Life is good.  We are here.  We are here and there and everywhere.

I am here.  Here and there and everywhere.

Happy Birthday to me.

39 - 93, it's all the same. True age comes from inside. With your love of life and love for others, you're timeless.

Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday sweetie! You are still just a baby, to me.

Magpie said...

It's thirteen times three - but is that bad in a superstitious kind of way? (I like division. What can I say?)

Happy birthday to you!

Lara said...

I put another little post on my blog for one last push for donations for school supplies.

hey... i was about to go frost a B-day cake (for our cat!) when I realized... you share a birthday with Shakespeare (and our cat of the same name). A good day. ;)

Happy birthday. My boy said "we're not just a celestial footnote, right mom?" to me this morning, and pondering that feels very 39 to me.

I'll join your number in a few weeks. Eat cake!

I just got caught up on your adventures. Wow, what a whirlwind you've been living in. I hope that all goes well with J and that he recovers fully so you can go back to your life.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Hetha said...

I'm with Bob, you are timeless if ever anyone was. Happy Day beautiful soul!

Z said...

I'll think of you as St George, always fighting that dragon.

And to share a birthday with Shakespeare, that can't be bad.

Happy Birthday, young Jen

I can only hope, when I turn 39, that i have been inspired enough by something to take the leap that others deem crazy and see where it carries me. Thanks for the inspiration...happy birthday.

Happy Birthday, Jen. From someone who lives in the mountains of Bukidnon. But is sitting in Delhi, waiting on a flight to Kabul, getting the latest on your news. All the best to you and J.
