Birthday Blessings

Happy Birthday to me

Yesterday was my birthday and it is different from the previous birthdays because of Facebook. This year, a lot of people gave me Happy birthday greetings in so many different ways. Some are short, some unexpected, some wishing me my dreams come true one day, and some showered me with love.

So here are my own birthday blessings........

Today is another blessing of LOVE

The love from above, unconditional, endless and boundless through eternity. The love from my family and friends whom I may not see from time to time but knowing they will be there for me when the time comes. The love that is in our hearts no matter how busy and occupied we are with our own problems. It is all about love, making the world go around while enjoying the ride through learning more of oneself, gradually learning to love oneself including my imperfections.

Today is another blessing of HOPE

Waking up, a new day, a new hope to conquer. I hope to be a better person, a better spouse, a better parent,  a better employee and a better friend in order to give hope to those who needed it the most. Each time I struggle myself to become a better person, there is hope. It is hope that keeps me going despite all the trials and misfortune that life sometimes throws my way.

Today is another blessing of HEALTH

With good health, it is the most priceless treasure one can possess. When I am healthy, my mind works well and my body too. That goes well with having a healthy emotion, healthy physique and a working brain that is enough to keep up with the new technology.

Having a healthy life is a lot of work. I need to love myself, take care of myself and laugh at myself to keep my health up and at its best.

Today is another blessing of GIVING

While it is my birthday today, it is still better to give than to receive. When my friend greeted me " Happy birthday to you, dear Sis. May all your dreams and wishes come true", I responded that my dream is to see her open her business and become financially secure. That made my birthday different, giving myself to others, to serve with gladness and never expect anything in return. Believe me, it is a wonderful feeling...

Today is another blessing of LAUGHTER

Laughter is the best medicine. I can't live without laughter in my life. It is a break from a hard life, a comfortable life and a lifeless life. With laughter, all the day's hard work will be forgotten. With laughter, all the pain will be covered with a happy face. With laughter all the anger will be replaced with a relaxed body. With laughter in life, I keep my youthfulness and age with grace.

Today is another blessing of CONTENTMENT

Today I will enjoy my birthday,  because I am content,  because today is another blessing thanks to all of you!
