"Don't Wait, Buy Your Own F&$#*%! Birthday Cake!" is a series of positive messages, originally written for the author's daughter, encompassing self-acceptance, self-love, and the bright light all of us possess inside ourselves. A friend contacted author Mary Elizabeth with a single text: "You were right." The woman believed someone else in her family would buy her a birthday cake, but by the end of the day, she was left without a cake. She vowed from now on to buy her own birthday cake. Written with love and a bit of humor, this book illustrates that we may not always have someone in our corner, but we always have our own inner strength. You are enough! Moms and dads can't live forever to give us our birthday cakes. Don't we prepare for war, so we must teach our children to prepare for life which at times can feel like war. We will survive the war if we learn that we are ultimately responsible in saving ourselves. Even in life's up & down roller coaster ride, may this book remind them to always retain their own love & light that was given to them on the day of their birth! In spite of it all, Cheery On!
