a new kind of birthday

a new kind of birthday

“Did you like your birthday gift,” she asked. Nothing had arrived, but she insisted it had been delivered. She repeated the address and although there was a minor error, it didn’t seem to be enough to confuse even a novice UPS driver. Today, on the last day of the year, my birthday gift arrived – a burlap bag with FEED 10 stamped on it. It has taken a lifetime, but she now understands me: artisan-made, donation for feeding 10 school children, fair-trade priced, to “be” the equality that we so need in this world. Thank you for a new beginning, just in time for the end of the year!
