happy birthday to me…

tomorrow is my birthday.
at my age, it's not really anything to get overly excited about, but i do realize the more i have, the longer i'm able to live.
but it's not like my birthday is super special. it's not like all my friends are racing around town trying to find the perfect gift for me.…
and if they were, i'd find that kind of awkward. i draw attention to myself on a regular basis, but when people honor me, it makes me feel weird. sort of like there are people way more deserving than me. really.
what would be super non-awkward is if my friends were to learn more about water.
you know, the kind that you can drink.
i remember my mother-in-law telling me about a time when she was in a car with a few ladies from africa. they were dumbfounded by the fact that we americans water our lawns with perfectly good drinking water.
i wouldn't dream of drinking from a hose. gah, the yukky hosey flavor of stale water…ick.
but for millions, no, more like billions of people, that would be like nectar.
you may not feel led to give. that's okay, i felt led to share.


  1. May your birthday be filled with blessings.

  2. Happy Birthday to YOU!!!!

    Such an unbelievable charity- I can't imagine water being so priceless- the blessings we take for granted...

    I helped Erin Edwards(The Vintage Pearl) build here well when I first heard of this worthy cause! Bless you for helping spread the word!!

  3. I love that there are so many more of these water charities popping up! Thanks for bringing them to light! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

  4. Happy Birthday!!!!!!

    My son has chosen WATER as our family cause this Christmas. Donating through World Vision.


  5. Thanks for sharing that, and happy birthday!

  6. I love the line, "I draw attention to myself on a regular basis." Are you me?

    Happy birthday. May others we don't know be allowed to drink up because of your presence on this blue ball.
