Today is my birthday.
I’m dedicating the day to celebrating myself, something we’re not really taught to do all that much.
I’m celebrating me.
Not my accomplishments or anything remotely tangible. I am celebrating my life. I’m alive, and so are you (if you are reading these words). So here I am, cake in hand, another year older and I haven’t changed a bit. That’s great because I’m perfect just the way I am. haha!
I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that I get better looking every year. The bad news is that they say I’m gonna lose my memory as I grow older. lets say.. forget the past!
Here comes my birthday wishes:
Thank you, Allah.
for giving me another year of life.
Thank you for all the people who remembered me today
by sending cards, and letters, 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 the hours I wasted,
for the chances I failed to take,
for the opportunities I missed this past year.
Help me in the days ahead to make this the best year yet,
and through it to bring good credit to myself,
happiness and pride to my loved ones. Aamiin.
Now, excuse me, i have a lot of candle to blow out.. ***
Happy birthday to Me!
