With Thanks

I can't thank you all enough for all the love you've given me this week. You all really got me through my 40th birthday blues with style. I'm blessed to have the best family, friends and virtual friends in the world.
I'm so grateful.

The Universe left this wonderful note in my email box yesterday:

Happy Birrrrthday to Youuuu,
Happy Birrrrthday to Youuuu,
Happy Birrrrthday Dear Kwana,
Happy Birrrrthday to Youuuu!
A few years back, not so long ago, heaven and earth erupted into a major celebration with the news of your impending adventure into this very time and space.

You see, someone like Kwana Jackson doesn't come along all that often. In fact, there's never been a single one like you, nor is there ever ANY possibility that another will come again. You're an Angel among us. Someone, whose eyes see what no others will EVER see, whose ears hear what no others will EVER hear, and whose perspective and feelings will NEVER, ever be duplicated. Without YOU, the Universe, and ALL THAT IS, would be sadly less than it is.

Quite simply: You're the kind of person, Kwana,Who's hard to forget,A one-in-a-million To the people you've met.Your friends are as varied As the places you go,And they all want to tell you In case you don't know:That you make a big difference In the lives that you touch,By taking so little And giving so much!

Kwana, you are so AWESOME! For your birthday, friends and angels from every corner of the Universe, including buddies you didn't know you had, will be with you to wish you the HAPPIEST of days and an exciting new year in time and space. You won't be alone!


And it turns out I wasn't alone. You came out in droves. Here's a pic of my cake from last night. I wish you all could have been with me to have a taste. But you were in my heart.

Now it's time for me to tackle this new decade. GO ME and GO YOU. Let's make this our decade.

Much love to you all,

Hope your birthday was wonderful! Now that I'm 45, I have to say that the 40's truly is good. There's stability and contentment with who you are and where you're headed.

I wanted to comment about the BEA. My sister and I went to the one in L.A. and I know what you mean about the shoulders hurting. I promised myself that the next time, I'd bring a rolling backpack!
