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.
