Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

Guess who came to my birthday party?


Yup. The Big Guy himself.

The best part is that this is a spice cake with cream cheese frosting, homemade from scratch by Laura, St. Paul's almost world renowned financial guru of The Christmas Appeal fame. Yummy.

You have to know that Laura is a Unitarian, so the staff teased her unmercifully about where she might have gotten that Jesus candle. She smiled slyly and said, "At the UUA gift shop, of course."

Can't wait to show you what we got Ms. Conroy for her birthday. She's gonna LOVE It.

Thank you for all your wonderful birthday greetings to me. You've made my day. I am deeply blessed.

I just thought you should know that a couple of my friends as I at Drew were talking about you recently. Pretty sure you don't know any of us but we were all expressing our appreciation of you. You don't now how many people you touch. But you touch far more than you can even conventionalize. We may not tell you in person, but we heard you tell your story at Drew our first year, we read your blog, and you are an inspiration to us.

I wish we had the courage and opportunity to tell you this to your face...but this is a good way too.

Thank you for all you do. You have paved the way for so many. Your work will be remembered and are appreciated beyond measure. Thank you Rev. Keaton. You are a God send to our lives.....
