“The secret is - not in your hand - or your eye - or your voice, my aunt once told me. The secret is in your heart. Or course, she said, knowing that doesn’t make it any easier. ” — by Brian Andreas “Still Mostly True”

One can find much beauty in this world.  It takes an open heart. When I attend a celebration, be it a birthday, a wedding, an engagement, bar or bat mitzvah, anniversary, I am reminded how lucky we are to have friends, family, and loved ones in our lives.

Once again this knowledge resonated for me when, this week, I attended a friend’s surprise birthday. She is a woman who certainly knows about opening your heart. As she walks (or floats) through the day, she finds wonder all around her.

A very Happy Birthday, Beth.  You are one in a galaxy :)
