People ask what I want for my birthday.
Here is what I wish:
In the early morning, I'd like to follow my husband down the steps to the beach.
Perhaps I'll notice some gifts from the sea.
Pelicans might write a birthday message with their delicate calligraphy of flight.
If I'm lucky, I'll follow footprints of surfers toward distant cliffs.
I'd like my heart to soar with happiness at the gift of life.
Possibly, the setting sun will offer a molten surprise.
And the evening sky might release streamers of pink in celebration.
My 74th birthday is May 9th.
To be lucky enough to enjoy such a long life is my One Good Thing.
I believe all my birthday wishes will come true...
