...Homemade Rainbows...

today

Today I had brave and cheeky guests for breakfast again, literally at my front door.
Today I wore bright glass beads and a new cotton tunic.
Today I've admired my shiny new watering can probably more than anyone would admire any shiny new watering can.
Today I was so very excited to receive international mail (Thank you Lisa!)
Today I was treated to a slow baked dinner, homemade chocolate cake and good red wine.
Today I have been given love notes and drawings in writing I can't quite yet understand by myself, but in which the message is quite clear.
Today I have been shown love by all of my tribe.

Today.....I see another year left behind and a new one about to begin.

Today I may be a little bit older....

Today I may be stereotypically wiser too.....
but today I can see clearly what is most important.

I know it's not beads
or watering cans
or mail
or chocolate cake...... though they are all nice.

Today I know it's the meaning and the love and it's just being here.......

today.

Leanne, you have made Fauna's day by following her! You are so sweet! Happy belated birthday and I'm so glad the brooch arrived on such a perfect day! It looks like you had a great birthday. I was quite excited to see the brooch in your post, kind of neat to see where "it landed."
