It's My Birthday!

Today is my birthday! Wow. And I have a blog! First birthday with a blog. I won't bore you with details, but just wanted to do a quick birthday post about how grateful I am.

I took this picture on Sunday when J and I went on a leaf peeping expedition. There's so much symbolism in this pic!

The last verse/stanza (I'm not a Literary Critic) in Frost's 'The Road Not Taken' sums it up ...

"Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

I just hope that I'm getting wiser as I get older. Oftentimes I wish I could relive portions of my life--those years of making mistakes and hurting people with my words and actions. But, then I wouldn't be the person I am now.

I am grateful for...
...being alive today.
...being sober today. Each day is a gift and a blessing. The days now add up to six years, and almost nine months!
...a loving and wonderful partner who has been very supportive during
these tough times for me. My migraines have kept me from working full-time, but things are looking brighter.
...a family that lives close enough to stay in touch.
...a beautiful, gentle, loving kitty who found us and adopted us. Each day is sweet.
...all the friends I have from my various interests: tea drinkers, knitters, spinners, hockey, and all my new friends I've made from Ravelry, Plurk, Brightkite and other social networks! You all enrich my life!
