Ive always been an upside down flower

I have been told “Rachel, I am my loudest and weirdest around you.”

I have been told “You would make a funny cartoon.”

I have been asked, “What is it like inside your head?”

I stop and stare up at trees while walking.

I lay on the ground to take pictures up though the flowers.

I talk about cats a lot for not having one.

I always have crafty things happening in my room.

And I remember knowing as a kid that I was just kind of different.  And for the people that have loved and embraced my oddness - I thank you.  You mean the world to me :)  Cheers to me.  It's my birthday.  I get all the cheers right now.
