Today is my mom always said out of the eight kids she birthed, I was the most birth and rear.  I was born butt first, yelling at the world, by the time I arrived, my mom was tired of having seems my brothers and sisters were given the job of watching after me. Out of eight kids, I was the only one born at a hospital, the others were home births.
I was always the odd one, the one the family made jokes about......I was weird and different.
It's all good, I am what I am.

It has been overwhelming today......all the birthday wishes, the notes, the calls.  It is quite humbling.
Everyone kept asking my plans, what were we doing for my birthday........we were without power four days this week, we have worked like lumberjacks clearing debris so we can do clothes dryer died......I have washed and dried clothes all day today.  We expect more storms tonight and tomorrow.  We had a big gig this week.......we are exhausted......I don't want the storms to hit anyone, I just want them to disappear.

I appreciate all the birthday wishes, all the good thoughts.  It is amazing to feel loved, for friends to think of you,  to tell you how much they love you.  Not only am I a lucky woman, I am a happy woman.


  1. Here's one more wish- well, two actually. Happy birthday and may many blessings come your way. Thank you for the inspiration that you are to me.

  2. Thank you, I just don't want to take up space while I am here, trying to make my life and breath count.

  3. Happy Birthday Jilda. Your posts are are candles on life's cake and I love reading each one. Your trials and your courage facing them give me courage as I am about to start facing something similar.
