Today is my birthday, I woke up with a prayer of gratitude on my lip and a cheerful smile on my face.
”Thank You for today and everyday God”,
I whispered as I looked up to the Sacred Heart portrait on my bedroom wall.
I gave myself a tight hug and said,
“You are just amazing. Stay young forever; Keep writing, painting and loving, now and forever,, Happy Birthday..”
Then my eyes moved to the mirror on the other side, only to see a fantastic human being smiling back at me.
I looked once again in those eyes of mine, I saw the girl with dreams in me, tempting to fly.
I saw stories in those dreams, awaiting to be written and shared.
Yes, those stories full of love and of course full of life.
Even more closer, I saw the facts that make my life worth living and be grateful for every day;
I saw the comfort of my mom’s lap, the strength and support of my dad’s shoulder, love and more love from my better half, a brother’s eye that look up to me (and sometimes over), a handful of friends that have faith in me, a team of colleagues who trust in me and a huge family to back me up in my ups and downs. And above all a great God that showers His Grace on me.
Dear God, I am humbled to have them all in my life and can’t thank enough for these lovely people; my family, my friends, my colleagues, and all those who made me, me . I do realise all that what I have is not my merits, but all your Grace
And, Dear lovely people, Thanks for being my world.
Much Love ❤️
