International Day of Peace....

Today is the International Day of Peace!! You can read about it here.

Sixty four years ago today I was born and the world was not at peace. Now all these years later we still aren't at peace! When are we going to learn?

I think it's rather cool that my birthday is such a significant day and such a worthwhile one at that. It helps me focus on what is important, and at the top of my list would be PEACE!! I hope I live to see it in my lifetime....but it doesn't look good.

********************************************

I wrote the upper part of this several days ago thinking I could finish it last night. I had big plans for putting music on my blog...."When I'm Sixty Four" (!!) and all kinds of other things but life got in the way!

Yesterday evening I wasn't feeling good and spent the whole time in bed! Nothing serious....just my tummy acting up but this morning I feel as if I've been in a fight and the other guy won! So please forgive me for leaving this in such a half-finished way.

I plan to be quiet today and eat soothing food and take care of me so I can celebrate many more birthdays.

  7. Happy Birthday to You!!! How rotten feeling bad on your special day - and it is special isn't it - wouldn't it be wonderful if we had peace? Imagine putting the news on and, well, there wouldn't be much news! Yay! Anyway, take care of yourself and have a wonderful, peaceful birthday. xx

    Just reading your previous post Janet - when you said you had a lot of books I didn't realise you had a LOT of books!! Wow.

  8. Happy Birthday, Janet - hope you're able to enjoy lots of R&R today - take good care of you. I always think birthdays are good for at least a month, so you have plenty of time to celebrate, once you're feeling a little more celebratory. ((hugs))
