BE CONTENT WITH WHAT YOU HAVE
REJOICE IN THE WAY THINGS ARE.
WHEN YOU REALIZE THERE IS NOTHING LACKING
THE WHOLE WORLD BELONGS TO YOU. Lao Tzu..


MY BIRTHDAY

As I lie in bed this morning I think of the years gone by.I can truly say that for the most part I have happy memories . It may have been a little hard growing up because we were many children but still my mother made each one of us feel special.Not with buying us many presents but with just a hug, a special meal and a tin of sweets that we can give to the other children in school.I did look forward to going to school on my birthday.

God has blessed me with a caring husband, two lovely children and many brothers and sisters and a host of friends especially my blogging friends because they unconditionally care about me and wish me well.Someone they had never seen or met before but only through blogworld. Thank you each and every one of you for making the last year go by really fast,I made it through surgery really well and am recovering good, better than most people. I am thankful for being able to get up each morning and look at the beautiful world we live in, listen to the birds chirp, admire the butterflies and the flowers and be able to take care of myself.

My birthday wish is that my sister will be well soon, get through the chemo and be able to visit India soon. Another year has passed and a new year begins, I am sure this year is going to be even better than the year before. Thank you each and everyone of you for being with me through the good and the bad times.I also want to wish everyone who is having a birthday a Happy one.

I got a special Birthday present from "J" .it is called a skyscout.I think it was a very thoughtful gift, because he knows how much I love looking at the stars and the sky.Through which I can locate the stars and know the names.it works of a GPS. It is really neat. Our backyard is really open and we can see a lot of stars at night so I am sure it is going to be a lot of fun. Take care , I will be with my sister for the next week as she goes through her chemo.please remember her in your prayers.

Happy Birthday Starry,
Hope the wish for your sister will be granted.
I would be interested to know about your gadget. I love gazing at the stars ... unfortunately living in the city most of them are obscured to the naked eye by the street lighting.
Nice to know you are make a good recovery.
Hugs for you.
