The Birthday Blessing

I wrote this blessing for a young friend who was turning 16 whose mum was putting together a ‘birthday book’.

May your balance be steady

May your stance be strong

May your heart be filled with joy

May your vision be clear and your mind open

May your gaze be soft and may you listen deeply

May your life be rich with the blessings of gratitude

And may you know you are deeply loved

 It is a pleasure and a joy to know you.
