I’m Celebrating Today!

I am fortunate to be alive. I have a precious human life. I must not waste it.

The Dalai Lama

Today is my 73 Birthday.I am celebrating being here, being alive, being able to ride and enjoy the day. I am very fortunate.

Today one of my friends at the barn brought in a spectacular cake. People gathered round and sang Happy Birthday. I sliced up the cake and several people enjoyed it. I certainly did.It was a chocolate angel food cake with raspberry cream icing between the layers.

I rode Biasini before having the cake and the friend who brought the cake told me she had spoken to Biasini and told him to be good as it was my Birthday today. And he was.

Tonight my husband and I are going out for a Thai dinner at a local restaurant. So it is a day full of celebration and gratitude.
