Birthday Blessings - Thank You!

By Pandora Poikilos

So, I turned another year older, my youth fading in numbers and yet growing in my heart. On the downside, I have yet another round of hospitals, needles and doctors for this week. On the upside, this is probably the last round for a long time to come.

And in receiving so many birthday blessings, it gives me joy to share some of the gifts with all of you. So here goes and in no particular order ...

Peas gave me two cards. He made me go weak in the knees with a custom made "peas and carrots" birthday card with the following quote from Henry Van Dyke, "Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.” Then, he melted my heart with an absolutely sweet congratulations card for getting published, Excuse Me, My Brains Have Stepped Out which incidentally was also released on my birthday.

Then there was the gift from Roy Durham when he tagged me as a Versatile Blogger, two times in less than a year, I was ecstatic!

I learnt to play the piano as a child. Unfortunately, I never let it grow into anything more than a childhood routine. So when I got this next gift, it was touching, reminiscent and oh so very soothing. Here's Awaken by Travis Von Hoopes.

To add to all of this, I was a featured blogger on Bloggers, tagged by a fellow blogger - Abhisek Panda, Peace from Pieces made it past 45,000 hits and I received loads of wishes from so many of you. Thank you, thank you for one of the bestest birthdays ever!
