Happy Birth Day to All!!! -Morning rants of a caffeinated Birthday Girl-

SUNSUNSUNHave you ever awakened to a sunrise? To see the change is to feel the actual turn of the Earth toward the sun! You can feel that power that greatness. In that moment it gives you a glimpse of not just earth which is amazing in itself, but the Universe!

When I see it this way, it takes my breath away. Just looking at the sky is amazing. The moon, the stars–and not just in that romantic cliche kind of way.

We don’t just live in a city or a town but in a Universe!  And think about what it takes to keep that going so smoothly, so mathematically correct that we don’t even need to think about whether the sun will rise or whether or not the planets will stay in their own lane. We just trust that it will happen each and every day.

This mathematical precision is repeated in every living thing, in every tree, flower animal and insect. And let’s get to us! In spite of our abuse of ourselves, our hearts continue to beat and our bodies continue to carry us and we wake up–if we are amongst the fortunate of the day.

When I think about this greatness, this power that exists, I can’t help but feel awed to be alive and excited and grateful to wake up to the light of any day! Let alone my birthday. Because every morning I wake up, no matter what’s going on in my life or the world, is a privilege.  Everything else is just gravy!

Take a moment, take a breath, look around you and be awed by the richness that surrounds you!

Seize the day!





  1. Good morning Gayle! What a wonderful way to wake up, thanks!
