happy, indeed.

yesterday was my birthday.  it was really great to turn 27.

or something like that.

but seriously, i had a great birthday weekend.  my parents came, my sister and her two daughters came, and despite some stomach bug going around, it was a very nice weekend.  i got my favorite white cake with hungarian chocolate icing, some great time with family, and some lovely presents, including a couple of t-shirts (this millennium falcon one and this bacon one).  i also got the first two seasons of a particular british period drama that i love, which i will be rewatching on sunday evenings to restore the world to its rightful order.  i got a few other things as well, which is all far more than i deserve, but i will receive it all with satisfaction, as i receive the gift of the whole congregation of Catawissa Avenue UMC singing "happy birthday" to me yesterday, and the pixel-load of 'happy birthday' messages that caused by facebook cup to overflow.  i receive it all with joy and contentment, because i believe that i am loved, that i am God's child, and that each person ought to be celebrated as God's workmanship; God's unique design.  what joy!  what wonder!  life is beautiful!

yes, it was a happy birthday, thank you all very much.
