I’ll Ride My Pony, Today is My Birthday


I planned a nice gallery of photos from different times in life. Planned but it is not happening. In this photo I’m smiling ear to ear galloping around the kitchen on my second birthday. My grandparents bought the pony I dreamed of.

I’m overjoyed to have my WordPress friends here, let’s share the day with hugs, best wishes and lots of chocolate and vanilla cake. Sorry Vegans, I can offer a cold bottle of water.

The video reminds me we are all miracles and can do anything we apply ourself to. It’s touching around the World people can relate.

Before long my post centered more around my traumatic background, it was seamless not a conscious decision. I have learned everyone’s trauma is different, even when they appear the same.

Harlon, this post will feel many with Pride and leave a big smile of their face. You have that about you, I leave you post always smiling.

A Patient Voice

Have fun with your life

don’t let anyone undo that.

Make Bob Mackie gowns out of towels

or wear a necklace of pearls

and smile and laugh as you do it.

Be good to yourself

and to everyone else.

Feel good about yourself

and everyone else

and if you feel you can’t do it

ask for support if you need help

because everyone has the right to be themself.

We all deserve respect

and we all have room for compassion,

and at the end of the day

remember to be grateful for all that happens.

If we all took pride in ourselves and everyone else

this world could be wonderful,

true and not false.
