Friday, truth or tale…

Something new for Friday.
I will write a story that will be truth or tale.
Some stories will be 100% truth (or close to it) others will be 100% tale.
Most will be a little bit of both.
You can decide where the story belongs.

Fifty was her favorite birthday. As a child, she did what she was told, as a teen she rebelled, as a young woman she was sad and lost. But at fifty, she felt like she finally knew who and what she was meant to be.  It was a lovely liberation from the chains of the past.

It was like she was at last free of the cocoon that held her prisoner for so long. She decided to mark the day in a special way. She got a tattoo of a butterfly! A butterfly just beginning to open its wings to take flight. Perfect!

Happy me…

I am celebrating my birthday that was yesterday…today.

This was delivered to me at work today!
edible
Too cute and delicious.
Pineapple, melons, grapes
and chocolate covered strawberries!
Of course, the strawberries were the first to go.

I also had other things on my desk;
a box  from a wonderful bakery filled with
brownies, honey nut cranberry shortbread and
carrot cake cupcakes, a monogrammed bag, a change purse,
and gift cards for a donut shop and a gourmet olive oil
shop that also has gourmet pasta and other goodies.
The day before my birthday I was surprised with a flower pot and
homemade oatmeal cranberry bread pudding.

I have the best friends and I celebrate every one of them!

Today is his birthday and finally it’s happening.
He has waited his whole life for this day.
He is getting his very own wheels.
At last he can explore the world.
He can hardly wait to ride down the driveway,
all the way down the street to the corner, and
someday around the block!
