THANK YOU FOR ALL THE BIRTHDAY WISHES. It’s a special and quiet birthday as I’ve always preferred it to be. Always consciously slowing down on this day to smell the flowers, uhm, er, Christmas tree. Yes! I finally finished decorating our gold, pearl and purple themed tree. I always purposely top all this opulence with a very simple Precious Moments angel topper (whose clothes are patched up and torn). This keeps my heart grounded and committed to the real reasons for the season.
But yeah, it finally smells like Christmas in our little castle! I’m thankful for new ornaments too: a vintage ball which I picked up for 50 cents at a thrift store (it makes me wonder what kind of Christmases it has witnessed in the past and I am drawn to add to its abundant well of memories), an exquisite Lennox Claddagh ornament from my sweet aunt Jeannie (to celebrate my Irish roots!) and I’m still waiting to receive the new ornament that my bestie gives me yearly (she already sent me a photo of it). Every piece added to our tree each year is completely random and unplanned but always wondrously fitting in, very meaningful, special and treasured just like all the moments of love, joy and peace I’ve been blessed with throughout the year including the new milestones I never ever imagined I could reach.
I really can’t ask for anything more. Well, good health for my parents (yes, please!) and for all my loved ones and me, abundance and prosperity that will enable me to help many and so much more opportunities in the coming years to keep on growing, learning new things, using God’s gifts and living this awesome gift of life to the fullest no matter what obstacles get in the way.
And oh yes, I’m wishing everyone this amazing symphony of inner peace, strength and quiet contentment I’ve found especially for those who haven’t found it!
Life is great. God is the greatest.
