Another year, a new decade that’s how I celebrated my birthday this year. The candle is added on the birthday cake but I don’t feel any difference from last year. I guess numbers don’t count, but how you feel and what you have done with those years that matter most. I had a great time celebrating my birthday with my family in the backyard. When I look at my children, my heart just filled with joy to see them growing up and becoming who they are and most of all they are good looking kids 🙂 I am so blessed to have them in my life and I thank God for choosing me to be their mother.
As I ponder about my birthday, how nice it was to celebrate with family and all the well wishes for my birthday, I realized I also entered a new decade in my life. A decade is 10 years and a lot of things happened in our lives whether it’s good, bad, sad, and joyful. The cycle of life continues whether we like it or not and we can’t go against nature.
How do I describe my last decade? It was a decade that I wished was a nightmare. I wished I could wake up from the nightmare and everything was okay. But, it didn’t happen that way. I had to go through a lot of changes in my life from heartaches, sorrows, joy, to see my children graduating from high school and going to college, finding myself again, losing my beloved pets. Still… here am I!! standing and breathing, counting my blessings and so happy that God is on my side. He has been there with me all the way.
A good life doesn’t mean it’s always smooth. I have had my share of twists and turns, valleys and mountains, high and lows. Still I look back.. I can smile, have tears in my eyes and say “Thank You God” for a good life 🙂 I am excited for what lies ahead of me and what He has in mind for me.. I just let him lead and stay on the path J
