Today is my son’s 13th birthday.  Thirteen?  How can that be?  It is amazing how fast children grow up.  

I made a birthday card for him:

And my most important gift that I am giving to him is that, starting tomorrow, I am going to Quit Smoking – again! and Once and For All (I hope!).

I want to be Successful and Sublime.  Free again – I can do this.  I will do this for my son, and for my LIFE.  I will quit smoking, be at peace, and heal my soul – and care for my child, who is now a teenager!

But, Serenity is my Directive.  To THRIVE is my goal.  (And BREATHE.)

This is going to be a good year; I can feel it – to clear out the “inside” and then clear out the “outside.”  AND BE FREE.  

Here is my “31 point plan” for this month.   And I intend to keep this up!  If nothing else, it gets me to draw – but what it really does is get me to Pay Attention and to live a more balanced life.

And I hope that my son has a Wonderful Year; he is a wonderful boy; I am so very proud of him and I am so very, very lucky to have him; he has always been a Priceless Gift to me.

Parenting (especially on my own) is hard work.  But the Rewards are Priceless.

Happy Birthday, my Son!  You are MUCH LOVED.
