it has been sunny on my birthday every year for as long as i can remember. this year (despite otherwise wretched weather) is no exception. what a blessing the light of that star can be - my creator knows and loves me well. on top of that, i have wonderful friends and family members who really know how to make me feel special! you know who you are. i love you all. twenty-nine is going to be a good year. i can feel it.
