Une Joyeux Anniversaire

By Bellezza @bellezzamjs

We make it a tradition to celebrate our birthdays long and hard, my mother and I. Back to back days at the end of January, mine is today, and hers is tomorrow.

There's always lots of cake...

But this year, to honor a milestone birthday for her, I folded origami cranes of handmade Japanese paper.

I must admit to feeling some pleasure at how they turned out.

As for me, I am abundantly blessed with Facebook messages, real cards, and bountiful presents such as these from Lesley:

and these from my parents; the bear claw pattern, symbolizing inner strength from which I feel I've had to draw this year due to various challenges.

Not every year can be so special, but I am savoring this one that is, taking nothing for granted.
