• No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. Nelson Mandela ‘Long Walk to Freedom’

I have 3 sons.

I also have 3 daughters.
They each married a young man that is 'like a son' to me.

TWO of 'these' sons have birthdays this month -
both within a week's time.

In spring the days warm, begin to lengthen,
and the light steadily increases.

All my sons bring light and humour  to our family, increase the vitality, and strengthen joy with thoughtful gestures and kind actions.

Does this sound a bit familiar? 
It should - I said something like it a month ago.
Repetition of good things is a good thing! 

Happy Birthday may also seem a bit repetitious or trite but ...
why change a good thing?

So ...


 I pray for your happiness, not only on the day the calendar marks, for you, the passing of another year - your birth day, but all other days too.
