Happy Birthday to me

Why am I frowning? Because I know that tomorrow I'll be 46!

Sunday, Oct. 9 is my birthday. I'm cool with being 46 because I don't look it! (smile). Also I've achieved a lot of the goals that I'd set for myself in youth. My goal to be published is one that I'd thought would have already occurred but since I haven't been very proactive in that area--eh.

One of my biggest accomplishments is having blog followers that support not only my writing, but me the person. I've enjoyed sharing my triumphs and you certainly have helped me with my downs. You guys are awesome and much appreciated!

So if you want to make my birthday PERFECT, then send me a birthday message. That would make my day!

  1. swiftly
    and
    firmly
    my hand
    cuts through the air
    landing on the
    the fabric between
    your skin
    and me

    my hand lands
    and holds firm
    letting the sensation
    sink in
    making sure
    every nerve
    is able to stand up
    and recognize
    what is happening

    its your birthday
    make a wish
    bite your lip
    and close your eyes
    as the hand
    lands firmly again

    happy birthday

  9. Happy Birthday!!
    You can frown at 45 but shout and jump for a joyous 46. Earlier this year you mentioned your health concerns and you know as well as myself that some people won't ever see 45.

    So my birthday wish for you Kim is to have a happy and healthy 46 MORE years to be surrounded with love. And when your 92 looking back on 46 you will remember the amazing time you had in the prime of your life.

    Love ya!

  13. Happy Birthday my Libra sister!!! No wonder your stories are soooo addicting for me: my birthday is October 7th:) Enjoy the forties (I'm there too): you're finally old enough not to have to prove anything to anyone but yourself! You have accomplished so much just by the touch of your pen to paper. I dare say your stories has revived within many the hope in love in many forms. Your stories highlight that you don't have to be perfect to find it. They also remind the reader that the best loves are the unexpected and rooted in deep friendship and true emotional intimacy. Kim you have accomplished more in 46 years than many have in 90. Have a great, blessed, and fun birthday.

    Love your fellow Libra,
    Delores Turner

  17. 46 is that all??? By looking at you I'd say you still in your mid 30's with me. Have a joyous birthday, may the bottle never go dry, and the flog stays swinging!

  24. Dear Pep,
    Have a grand day tomorrow. I for one am so glad I found your work on Lit. It led me to your blog and the community of folks who know you through your writing(many)too. Your work will be published, and I will be online/inline to pick it up when that day comes. Until then...
    Happy Happy Birthday and Many More!
    Peace, Joy, Freedom,

    Dear Kim,
    I've been following your writings for a while and although I've never met you, I truly feel that your presence in this world has been a tremendous blessing to me. I'm sorry I misses your birthday, but figured I still use this time to let you know how much I appreciate you. (Hope you had a blast on your birthday!)
