Just A Year Older!

Mariposa just turned 29!

And I think I have finally kicked my asthma...pharyngitis...and flu in the butt!

I'd like to THANK YOU ALL for all your love...

To be in bed sick...without internet makes me feel so detached from the world...good thing I have it back now!

I was almost at the point of not celebrating my birthday because of all the things I'm going through...yet, I'd like to thank IT Guy for being there and my guide.

He had made me strong all this time...and told me to shake off everything I'm going through...work and personal...health...and reminded not to entertain any depressing thoughts for God does not want us to be shaken...with a smile...because that used to be my line...a line I got from my Spiritual Director!

So, we have a simple dinner with family and some close friends and relatives...and it was a HAPPY birthday indeed. IT Guy is right...life is beautiful. We just have to look around and appreciate every little things that we have.

I'm grateful for all the blessings and graces I have received for 29 years now. I have been sick and all, and yet I'm still here...functioning and quite successful in everything that I do. I have people around me who loves me and care for me... I could not ask for more.

Did I get the red shoes? No. Or not yet. I don't know. I have not gone out for almost 2 weeks. IT Guy told me we will go out this weekend, so I still don't know. But I got something better than the red shoes...guess what?!

YOU....

ALL of you...

I feel so loved...both here (BLOGland) and here (my land)! LOL

to give thanks!

Happy Birthday.

It's funny that you say not being able to go online made you feel disconnected from the world. The secular belief that going online is what disconnects you from the world, lol. But then, we now arrive at what your world is and what the world considers your world to be.

But enough of the Aristotle imitation. I'm glad you're better.

Happy 29th birthday!!! … and I’m so relieved to know you’re feeling better at last. Seems to me that IT Guy is definitely ‘a keeper’ … and I’m glad he’s been there for you. How ‘kewl’ that you were able to celebrate simply with family and friends.
Hugs and blessings,
