In two days I will be celebrating my birthday, another milestone, another year added to my existence... and I am so grateful! Many years back during my troubled solitude, I have often pondered about a lot of things...will I marry or stay single? Will I or will I not have children? Will my mother and I ever see the best from each other or never? Will my father start regarding me as someone with whom he can share his views or not? Will my sisters ever see me as an “ate” they could depend on? Will I ever be taken seriously? Will I ever get a stable job? So many questions….always left unanswered… Never knowing what my purpose in life is. And then you discover that your purpose is not given to you on a silver platter but takes some time of soul searching and life experiences before you touch base. Now I could say that I have travelled at least half the way of my full circle and as such, contented where I am. My loving husband and three wonderful children are constant reminders of the blessings that I have. If I used to shirk on my birthdays now I embrace this with pleasure because every year that I happen is always another year with the people I love. And each time I thank our Lord God that He has given me the wisdom to make His plans for me my own and to completely entrust my life unto Him.
On my birthday, I would like to spend this time not only with my family but with friends who have remained steadfast all throughout the years! You know who you are so see you soon! :)
