Dear friends,

Thank you so much for all your wonderful birthday wishes... i loved all the pictures and heartfelt comments... needless to say when i saw them all tonight i was surprised, delighted and moved to tears...

this day is bittersweet for me because my twin sister Rowena is no longer with me to share in 'our' special day together, diabetes took her life a few years ago. She always used to joke with me and say: " i'm the oldest by 8 minutes so you have to listen to me " .  Funny thing is sometimes i actually did ... boy she sure could get me into trouble in our younger days...

we fought like sisters will do but most importantly we really loved each other and shared with each other, you know, all those things that over the years fills the pages of your heart with unforgettable memories, so much so that i can hear her voice cheering me on... still.  i miss her so ... honestly, sometimes it's so hard!  but maybe you know about that too... so all i can say is my heart is here for you ...

i guess on this birthday, the beginning of my 61st year on my journey, as a woman, a mother and grandmother, a soul-seeker of sorts though thanks to Maharaji i have been shown my true being and purpose for being given this magnificent life... this breath unique to me, to each one of us, that is in and of itself Divine, pure in essence, that flows like the tide ... beyond anything that i could ever make happen ... which will someday subside and leave this body ...

but until then i will continue to be inspired ... to inspire ... to share all that i have been shown  and given ... to be that light that might shine,  that might light anothers' lamp taking away the darkness...participating in illuminating the soul, rejoicing in that moment 'in between'  when , for no apparent reason, the laughter flows freely ... and the Spirit within soars ...

thanks for listening... thanks for Being... thanks for sharing and caring... may you always be inspired, loved & appreciated ...

for these are the gifts you have given to me ...

with love & affection your soul sister and friend rosemary
