I usually don’t remember birthdays, especially my own. But today when I logged in FaceBook I realized that I got older one year. Yes, today is my birthday… so Happy Birthday to me! I thank you all who have posted a happy birthday note for me today.
Happy Birthday to Me! by Hank Locklin
My birthdays are always like ordinary days. I have stopped for a long time to celebrate with a special meal or a birthday cake this special day. I prefer to celebrate others’ birthday, that is more fun. Now I celebrate my younger daughter’s birthday, and my nephew’s. That’s important for children.
When I look back at all these years, gosh… time is flying. I am 48 years old today and I have only two more years to reach 50. Not that I am unhappy, I enjoyed all the different ages I went through with their joy and sorrow. What I see is that I am a different and better person than I was 20 years ago. And it’s only going to get better!
Happy Birthday to Me
Taking this occasion to tell the universe that I am grateful for all the happiness I had in the past, grateful to have found a good wife, grateful for my beautiful daughter Christina who is going to be 3 years old in August, and grateful to be in good health. Also grateful for so many good things that are happening at present and those that will happen in the future.
You notice that I did not mention God in the previous paragraph, I am not a believer nor a christian, but a buddhist…. I believe that things happen for a reason. The people you meet, the changes in career you go through and all the misfortunes you experienced made the person you are today.
Today I want to say thank you for all the good things I have in my life. Thank you for the good health, thank you for the money, thank you for the good friends I have.
