HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR SON DARIAN,
I do remember this day 17 years ago and all the minute details that went with this life changing day, for all of us. I have thought of so many things I wanted to say to you on your very special day today. I had an idea about a little piece of paper that I still have, that has every contraction I had before you were born. I counted the minutes, seconds, checked in with every doctor, friend and family member, just to make sure I was ‘doing’ it right.
Funny thing about that thought or mind set, so much of your birth and life has been out of my control. But this post to you is clearly in my control, and as I write this letter of happiness and celebration to you, I am wishing you a wonderful day, celebrating with your friends and family as I always have.
In the picture below, Michael Muir is talking to one of his horses about being his best for it’s new owners. I’m able to volunteer a bit of time at Rush Ranch in Susiun, Ca. Michael’s non-profit is called, Access Adventure, and they do many events a year to help those with disabilities and people in need of hope and healing.
This is the opening statement from Michael Muir, Director of Access Adventure, and Great grandson of the Americas Visionary Conservationist, John Muir:
“WE FOCUS ON WHAT IS POSSIBLE, NOT ON WHAT WE HAVE LOST.
THE WORST DISABILITY IS A BAD ATTITUDE.”
So my dear and precious son, if I was able to gift you anything in a box or gift card today it would be this;
Know you have the vision and tenacity to challenge your limits in life. You are much freer to focus on your potential than it may seem, and in doing so, your intention and deeds hold all great possibilities, for you and others. Your so loved by me and so many others, just check out my Facebook page today, and you’ll see how many there are wishing you a Happy Birthday!
Have a memorable day my dear son, and know I’m right there in mind and heart celebrating with you!
I love you Darian,
