It’s been awhile since my last blog. I’ve been busy with work, the house project, gardening and enjoying my life as a farmer’s wife & aunty.
So last Friday I was at Middle School, one tall girl ( probably 7th or 8th grade ) come to me when I grab the water.
Girl: ” Hey never see you, are you new? What grade are you?”
Me : ” No, I’m working here. ”
Girl: ” Ah so you new teacher? ”
Me : ” No, I’m photographer and taking pictures at your school. Did you already take school picture?” ( as Friday is make up day only)
Girl : ” Yes I did, how long have you been working? You look like a teenager. ”
Ahh girl you made my day!!!
Well, actually I turned to 35 last Monday and I’m happy being 35! My birthday weekend was wonderful. We had date on Saturday, hubby grilled great steaks on Sunday and on Monday I took a day off : fed the calves, chased the naughty cows, trucking with hubby, and I spoiled by hubby and mom. Hubby planned romantic surprise at our (unfinished) home, mom baked Birthday cake.
I received quite few text, birthday cards, phone calls, Thanks family and friends for remembering my birthday even tho Facebook didn’t reminds you! 😉
I remembered my 2013 birthday status on Facebook, which I love as my 2017 prayers again.
Thank you God, for giving me another year of life
Thank you for all the people who remembered me by calling, sending messages, voice msg, gifts and good wishes
Thank you for all the experience of this past year,
for times of success which will always be happy memories,
for times of failure which reminded me of my own weakness and of my need for you,
for times of joy when the sun was shining,
for times of sadness which drove me to you
for hours i wasted, chances i failed to take
for opportunities i missed this past year
help me in days ahead to make this year the best year yet,
and through it to bring good credit to myself,
happiness and pride to my loved ones,
and joy to you. Amen
35 means nothing but a number for me, I’m happy where I’m now, physically I’m getting old; I have wrinkle on my face, dark circle on my eyes, big belly and grey hair.. Oh Noo 😜, but not from inside, inside I feel like 22 😉 physical change is not a problem as I have all I need ; I have wonderful hubby, supportive and lovely family and friends and as long I’m healthy and happy.. I’m so thankful.
