every january
disney on ice
comes to town...
and my sweet sarah
declares she is taking me
for my birthday
this year we lucked out
with front row seats
toy story 3
was the feature
i had forgotten about
the pretty purple octopus
until he almost
landed in our laps
it brought back memories
of a letter i had written
describing the feeling of being
strangled by the tentacles
of such a creature
what a difference
one year makes
today i was thinking
i'm so blessed
to have found so many
loving and accepting
that have wrapped around
me just like
stretch with his smiling face
and that is a wonderful
birthday feeling
