I am another year older today and happy birthday to me! :)
This should be one of the very few birthdays I get to celebrate and spend with my parents since I became an independent working adult. At the same time, this is my first birthday I am celebrating without my dear hubby beside me since we get married.
Woke up imagining I have a whole day of celebration ahead of me. Spa, manicure, facial, hairdo, shopping, wine, dine and away from the toddler. *SNAP* Reality. None of the above and my toddler will continue to cling on to me like a koala whole day long. Does not really look or feel like a birthday. And I am aging, fast!!
Then I was reminded that I am actually very blessed and does age or whether there will be any extravagant celebration matters? No.
Because... I have love, great parents, family, a loving husband and of course, an incredibly adorable and beautiful daughter. That is enough to compensate the celebration I am not going to have this year.
Just when I thought it is going to be another beautiful but ordinary day, the florist came ding-dong at our door and a beautiful bouquet of flowers was presented to me.
The flowers came with a beautiful message:
"Happy Birthday Mommy! Thank you for taking care of Daddy & me. Ensuring we always have the best. Daddy & I are truly thankful that God awarded us you. Mommy, you are our angel. We love you very much! May God continue to bless you with great health, love and many joy!
From: Your lovely Isabelle and Hubby"
