I was awoken from my slumber this morning by showers of kisses and good wishes. No, you naughty lots, I'm not revealing tales from the private bed. My almost-10-year-old twins walked in the room to be the first ones to wish, kiss and hug me. It's now Mr.D's duty to wake them up for Subuh prayers and they practically jumped out of bed with the thought that it was their mommy's birthday! So now I know that snow and birthdays can get them out of bed pronto. Their actions certainly showed me how much they love me and they could not have done a better job at it. That really went deep down my heart. Thank you Abangs!!
My soon-to-be-seven-year-old Princess wrote this card. Simple, yet very meaningful.. (err, don't mind the missing 'ng' in 'something').
Most importantly, today is a day of reflection. Should I do this by means of a checklist? Let's see, what have I accomplished in 35 years? I think it's too personal to be put up here so I should perhaps ponder along these issues: what have I done to help myself, my family, my community, my religion and my surroundings? 35 years may seem a long time, but I can say that I've still got a lot to do!!!
pause to reflect please...
