Honoring Shirley On Her 80th Birthday
I asked Shirley what she wanted for her 80th Birthday, and this is what she said: "..donate to the ASPCA or American Humane Association and say a prayer for all of our earth human family." Both of these worthy charities that help fur people have "In Honor Of.." donation pages. Here are the links, if you'd like to honor this lovely lady in this way...

I asked Marianne Williamson to say a Birthday prayer for Shirley.
Happy Birthday to you....Happy Birthday to you....Happy Birthday Shirley....Happy Birthday to you. To an extraordinary and magnificient special soul who truly is a super survivor on Planet Earth.

This past Monday I attended a Marianne Williamson lecture, and I asked Marianne if she would say a Birthday prayer for Shirley's 80th birthday.
Marianne was so gracious and spoke so eloquently of Shirley.

I wish you much good health, joy, peace and happiness today, and always.

Oh, and there is one more thing. I pray and wish that Star Beings make their grand entrance on the White House lawn before you make your transition.

Happy Birthday Kid,

Happy Birthday, Shirley! And thank you so very much for lighting all of us up so very much to find ourselves in you!!!! What a beautiful gift you have given us all with your courage to simply be you...In that, we are following your lead and lending ourselves forward as well in just being ourselves in the beautiful expression of being. I applaud you and am so very grateful for that little woman who was the baby sitter of my child back in 1983 who said to me, "I have a book for you." As she led me to her library, she pulled down one specific book and handed it to me. It was "Out on a Limb" by Shirley MacLaine. She said, "I think you need to read this. And so I did. That book changed my life in an instant. Your words allowed me to know that I was not alone in my thoughts and knowings...So thank you, dear Lady, for confirming to me what I already knew but was afraid to reveal until YOU!
