Today I feel immensely satisfied. It helps that all my birthdays have been joyful. It helps that I had loving parents who wanted me. It helps that my family is healthy, safe and coping well during these pandemic times. It helps that I have food on the table and a warm house to sleep in.
Today I am glad that my birthday celebration will be simple—simply one of gratitude. I don’t want anything; I don’t need anything. In fact, gifts, chattels, more ‘stuff’, detracts from the gratitude. I have more than enough while some have so little, and too many have nothing.
