I received chocolates, a teddy bear, a balloon and a CAKE MADE OF FLOWERS!!! from Mom and Dad Lacho. So sweet!!!!!!
We made it to the beach in the afternoon and I read birthday cards from my folks and opened their gifts. I am so lucky.
My friend Mari made this living brooch for me and so I put it on my hat! Isn't it awesome!?
total magic sunshine day
Then a ladybug flew over! The signifigance of this was huge and made me overjoyed. Ladybugs are like little messengers.
We walked over to the bathrooms and took the ladybug with us and dropped her off back closer to the trees and plants. When I walked out of the bathroom I overheard a little girl say the word "Ladybug" to her distracted mother, and naturally my ears perked up. I stood by as she kneeled down and wrote something in the sand. I got this feeling that I was experiencing a full circle meeting of worlds in that moment. Subtle and striking. Then the girl stands up, looking me shyly in the eyes, smiles and runs off with her family. I go and look what she wrote. "LADYBUGS NEED FOOD" Yes , indeed. I was opened in that moment, realizing the interconnections between us all.
The words everywhere speaking to me
Then we head on over to meet our good friends Harimander and Gurujas for a celebratory dinner. We were going to go to this new restaurant in Santa Monica called the Golden Mean, but they were running late so we went to go meet them at their house first so we could just all go in one car. We both pulled up at the same time, and we all went over to drop in the house for a minute. As soon as we step in the door , the lights come on and its SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All our friends there and even our teacher Harijiwan! singing Happy Birthday to Gurujas and I ( her birthday is May 11) .. My jaw hit the floor and my heart beat like mad. I was stunned! I've never been surprised like that before , it was wonderful. and we even had a pinata!!!!!!!!!
We have the sweetest husbands in the world!
My wish already came true.
