Celebrated my birthday yesterday. Actually started celebrating on Sunday night when I went to Jogoya with Hui Yin (thanks Hui Tee for the vouchers! ). Then last night I celebrated with my family + my cousin.
Well, birthdays are not a very BIG thing to me, but I do cherish every single one of them as they have always been happy occasions. I am really ok if my birthdays are only an excuse for people to gather up and have fellowship. I still remember about 9 or 8 years ago when my church friends “celebrated my birthday” at the KFC in Bukit Bintang. None of them actually wish me or sing me the birthday song at the restaurant that night. Kakaka…
So for those people that have wished me, either in person, SMS, MSN or phone call, a million thanks to you all. Really appreciate the kind thoughts.And for those who didn’t wish me at all, be afraid, be very afraid. Grrrr….
Today I thank you that I am “fearfully and wonderfully” made.
I am so thankful that I can say that You made me to be special,
and really mean it. That I don’t have to try to be something I’m not,
to be considered special.
Even before I was born, you created me the way I was meant to be.
To fully accept that You created me for a purpose and that You love
what You created in me, is such an awesome thought! I can not thank You enough for what You have done in my life and in my heart,
to bring me to where I am today.
I know I truly am a miracle this day, on the day of my birth.
I love You and thank You and praise You, for You are worthy of all honor!
