Here’s to you

Enjoyed celebrating my birthday with a bunch of friends last night. Think I’m feeling ultra-nostalgic at the moment – what with all my packing up and imminent change and all that – but even so I couldn’t help but be happy for this moment.

Am loving this Brooke Fraser song which seems to capture where I’m at right now. Grateful for life to this point and for the way that even hard stuff has been worked to good. Battle-scarred and bruised, but thankful that some of the rough edges are being knocked off en route and that over time I’m being refined. 

Thankful for the friends that share the journey. Here’s to you.

 

Cheers to the furrows on our brow
To each hard-won victory
Cheers to the losses that grew us up
Killed our pride, and filled our cup

Cheers to the friendships well worn in
That time nor distance alter
Here’s to the sleepers we’ll see again
Fine company in memoriam

Open your mouth and sing out your song
Life is short as the day is long
I can’t leave you my body
But I’ll leave you a tune
This is my legacy
Cheers to you

Cheers to the passing of our youth
And the death of lust not wonder
A toast to the lessons not yet learned
And to the trials that will teach them

Open your mouth and sing out your song
Life is short as the day is long
I can’t leave you my body
But I’ll leave you a tune
This is my legacy
Cheers to you
