Today is a special birthday for a friend of ours. Six of us enjoyed a wonderful breakfast celebration this morning where we shared laughter, converation, flowers, yummy food, and lots of smiling :-) It was the perfect way for her to begin her birthday, & the rest of us were shared in her enjoyment.
With the tragedy of the Victorian Bushfires, every Australian, and in fact many nations from around the world, are feeling the grief and overwhelming sense of loss from afar. As a result, I don't recall a time in my life when I have ever witnessed such phenomenal generosity from the Australian Community and our overseas friends. The outpouring of donations of services, products, essential items, care, kindness, food, shelter, warmth, compassion and incredibly kindness of heart has been so incredibly moving. People from all over the country and globe, individuals to corporations, have given so much, that as a Victorian, I want to personally say thank you for helping in so many ways. As human beings, we all want to do what we can to help rebuild the lives and communities, and nurture those in such need.
This morning was a wonderful reminder that to being happy is vital for our wellbeing, and sharing special occasions is all the more fantastic when it is shared with wonderful friends...Life is precious, and it is a journey that we must enjoy in everyway...thank you to all my wonderful girlfriends, and a special happy birthday to one of you today:-) CJ x
