I am having a party for my late sister's birthday tonight, and it wouldn't be a party without you all, so, with all of my dubious authority, I, serenity blaze, do hereby declare January 13 a holiday--in honor of my beloved sister Cathy, the first twisted sister to arrive for planetary duty. In keeping with the theme of her spirit, I declare and constitute January 13, 2006 to be the first official "Beautify Your Life" day, because that is what Cathy did for us, and now we all have to work very hard to continue what she started. I'm inviting you all to help us celebrate her life, and the following are merely suggestions:
Have a night of "mellow".
Light some candles.
Wear something pretty.
You must smell wonderful, too.
Listen to soothing music.
And? grin..re-arrange something in your home so that it looks fresh and wonderful and welcoming.
Because that is exactly what she did.
Say a prayer or two, laugh a little, cry a little and don't forget to sing tonight. Let me know how things turn out.
