294 Birthday Wish

A few years ago, I realized that my birthday wish was an excellent opportunity to set an intention for the upcoming year. Ever since then, I have insisted on a birthday cake for myself and everyone else in the family. Happily I order my own cake! Many of my wishes have come true. Those of us who believe in the power of intention know to be careful what we wish for because we will get it. Some years I wished for specific things. Last year, I wished to be a better photographer. I wanted to take photos with some degree of skill and confidence. I've learned a lot in this past year, thanks to classes, blogs, friends and willing subjects :o). It's only a year into my journey but I do feel more equipped to capture the light or the moment.

I snapped the photo below earlier today and, for me, it illustrates how far I have come. It demonstrates the skills I've learned and allows me to stop this precious life for a nanosecond to savor the beauty it is. Today, this photo makes my heart happy and joyful. Years from now it will be a treasure!

Now...on to my birthday wish for this year. No...I'm not going to share it. It's between me and the Universe.

Little D was the guest photographer for these photos!
