and then my inflated head lifted me off the ground, and i flew away



Happy Birrrrthday to Youuuu,
Happy Birrrrthday to Youuuu,
Happy Birrrrthday Dear Beth,
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 Beth 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, Beth,
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!

Beth, 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!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Beth!




these were the words in my inbox today
from
the universe

and
now you know why head inflated the way it did
~
but
i guess when it's your birthday
you get 24 hours for that to be okay

  4. As you know I am on vacation, and because of that I have been trying to post my photos for August break then get off. I have not been commenting on my friends posts like I should, basically because I'm too busy getting cooked in the Bahama sun.
    But I did want to take the time to wish you a very very happy birthday, because you are a special person. Have a one.

  19. That is so beautiful, what a wonderful birthday treat to find in your mailbox. I just stopped over from Jill's blog too and saw her lovely birthday wish.
    It just goes to show who special you are and how very talented some bloggers are. Me? Not so talented, so I'll spare you my singing and just send you many virtual birthday hugs.

    Happy Happy Birthday to you, sorry I missed telling you yesterday, I was busy making pickles for 12 hours. But that's another story.
    You do make a big difference. You just do.

  35. Beth, Thank you for sharing your birthday with us, and your everyday for that matter. Computers are a wonderful thing aren't they?! I am still amazed myself over the wonders I find each day. I am a late bloomer here, not getting my first laptop til I was 48, but hey it was worth the wait. All good things come to those who wait, and I am glad to have found you. You brighten my days, you make me cry (in good ways),and I hope you will one day put all your blogs into a book ~ if you haven't already. I will most definitely want a copy. Thank you Beth for being you, and may this coming year be as beautiful as you are, for you.
