Yesterday, May 5, was my birthday. It was a beautiful still autumn day and my children prepared the table for the morning as we always do on special occassions such as birthdays, Easter and Christmas. Fresh flowers were secretly cut from the garden and placed in my favourite vase on the table.
Before breakfast presents were opened at the table and then we shared pastries my eldest went and bought from the bakery. And nobody was even late for school!
That evening we shared dinner prepared by the children.
Before I went to bed my daughter came in with a card she wanted me to have just from her. She has a wicked sense of humour and also great profoundness in her understanding of life. In it she wrote a most profound message that I would like to share.
Can you tell
If you are asleep or awake
Perhaps when you dream
You think in your head
That life is what you are living
Right now, this moment
Maybe, just maybe
You don't have to worry
Or wonder whether or not
Reality is in this life
Because, either way
You can create your own fate.
I am so grateful for having such a wonderful daughter... More >
