Birthdays

“With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.” ― William Shakespeare

Another year, another birthday gone. I’ve grown a bit wiser/hopefully/, I’ve gathered another set of memories. Some good, some not that much, but for sure I’ve added at least a lesson more. And each day has been a present, even if not appreciated appropriately due to stormy weather or just because of the storms life offers us. But I’m happy to be an year older and thankful to all the people who shared my day with me. Thank you!

This year the best moment of my birthday was my cake. My very dear friend Maria surprised me with heart-shaped Red velvet cake and it made me feel really loved and blessed to have people like her around me. Because on the end of the day, what matters is the people that care about us and I am proud to say that my family and friends care about me.

Today, a week after my birthday, it’s my aunt Mary’s birthday. I want to wish her a wonderful day and to let her know, that despite the distance I think of her on her special day! Happy birthday my precious auntie Mary!

Shared happiness

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases by being shared.” ~ Buddha

Happy Anniversary to my dear, precious parents! I love you both very much!

“Where true love burns desire is love’s pure flame;
It is the reflex of our earthly frame,
That takes its meaning from the nobler part,
And but translates the language of the heart”

~Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Easter

`

And for Thy sake, that all lyke deare didst buy,
With love may one another entertayne!
So let us love, deare Love, lyke as we ought,
–Love is the lesson which the Lord us taught.

~ Edmund Spenser
