Another year has passed. It’s my birthday again.
I am now older because time flies so quickly;
I am stronger and wiser because I had to be;
I am happier because I learned to be happier, learned to open the door for my happiness to enter. I learned how to be grateful for the smallest things in life. Things that don’t cost money and we don’t use it them enough, like hugs and kisses, like saying I love you and like smiling and laughing more.
At first, when I was doing my annual reflections which always come before my birthday, it seemed like I didn’t do much… but apparently, I gained so much this year.
I had a chance to improve myself as a mum, like a lioness I could take good care of my kids, stand beside them and push them to the best of their abilities and teach them about life-work balance and help at home.
I did my best, like always. Now my kids are the proof that I did the right thing, for them and for us as a family.
I’ve got a beautiful daughter, inside and out. You must be saying exactly the same about your own kids. That’s how we mums are. We love our kids more than we love ourselves and we are sure ours are the most perfect kids in the world.
Since the first minute after she came out to this world, she showed us who she really is: the most beautiful angel face on earth. Smooth skin with HUGE blue eyes that look at you with excitement, she always had this an unforgettable smile on her face.
Afraid to miss out on anything, a big fighter – she knew exactly what she wanted from the minute she was born and very very loudly.
You need to be aware of those things, because when your kids grow up, their characters stand out. I’m not saying it’s bad, not at all. Actually the opposite. I’m happy for my kids to stand out for what they are.
My dear daughter,
I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday and to tell you that you taught me a lot. You taught me you have a HUGE HEART, full of love hugs and kisses. You taught me never to compare you to anyone else because you are so unique and special. You taught me to laugh instead of cry when everything spills on the table or on the floor. You taught me that tickling is for everyday. You taught me how to fight for you. You taught me that there is such a thing being beautiful inside and outside.
You taught me what ballerina’s dream at night…
I wish you lots of luck in your life, tons of happiness and joy (especially in dancing) and remember – if you always do your best, you’ll be the best. No matter what the results are.
Love you to the moon and back,
This song summarises it all.
