I'll start at the beginning
LOL, best place I guess
just my thoughts as they ramble on
and I'm not even sure where they're going
or what I'm trying to say
Guess at the end of this
you'll know as much as me

So...the saga begins...

Today is my birthday
and I always believe that birthdays are special
we each are unique
and therefore our birthdays
are a reminder of the day we were born

Several cards arrived by email
many with loving wishes
cards from afar
like my sister in the states
or from my nephew up the road
which said
"WWW.happy birth.day.
love.com"
the smile on my face
was wide enough to let a bus through
he's only 9...bless him
Having arrived home
the morning's post awaited me
beautiful flowers also
but no card from my mother
a short time ago
she rang me
first time in 4 months
and all she wanted to know
was
"is there anything about me that she should be proud of!"
my heart sank
I quietly said
"I'm earning good money?"
but she replied
"do you look good,
would I be proud to be seen with you?"
alas I have no real answer
and she put the phone down
when I responded with
"I don't know, most people
think I look great but then they're not you"
so
I think it's more important
what's contained within the package
not how it is wrapped
and heck, I'm 43 today
but if my mother were reading this
I would say...
my heart is shaped like a flower
needs love to make me grow
the wrapping paper
is made up of my thoughts
the bows are my compassion
and the card written with love
is the whole of me..

Thank you my friends
for loving me!

Suthern especially

HUSG

Queen

You are now, and you always will be a beautiful Queen, who needs never ask for approval, because it will always be freely given. If it pleases your Ladyship, may I say...Happy Birthday.... it has been a wonderful year+ that I've know you and your uplifting message of love and friendship.

smooch

ps - your words left a real hollow feeling inside me, and a real dislike for your Mum - forgive me?

LJA: If she can forgive me for what I said about that creature who bore her, she can certainly forgive you! LOL.

RG: Dear friend, we cannot take the pain away that thoughtless words inflicted. But we know a lady who's an absolute treasure.... and as much as I hate that you were hurt, the one I feel sorry for is your mother. She doesn't have a clue... and it's her loss.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! and HUSG across the pond!

I seem to be constantly saying thank you today, but each thank you is meant with so much care...

What startles me more than anything, is that people see me as the person I am and yet she knows so little about who I am or maybe it's that I'm not terribly important...and I hated saying that...but years of the same make it roll of me like water off a ducks back....occasionally, when I say something about her, but always to someone close until now, when I made this public...someone will say, "but she's your mother"...but...heaven forgive me please?...giving birth does not make you a mother, love does, caring does, thoughtfullness and time does...every time I see someone in need of love or assurance I wish I could hug them, make them feel that security of being loved...it costs so very little!

LJA

as Suthern said...course I forgive you, you're thinking nothing I don't think myself, sad to say...

HUSG both

ps: One day I will have that home for children...that's where my money will go..:-)))) but it's our secret..
