This week was a great week. Well, because it’s my birthday week! My birthday was last Friday. The start of the week may be quite hectic but also realize something that we often neglect to be grateful at the little unexpected wonderful things that come our way, like the cookies from HongKong my colleague offered to us to cheer us up for a toxic Monday, a free facial voucher another colleague, seeing an old neighbour I again I haven’t seen for along time or a surprise early birthday gift from a group of wonderful women I have monthly get-together to discuss on faith, virtues and theology. There is really a lot if things to be grateful for if we just pay attention.
The day before my birthday, I was happy to received a postcard from a friend from Vienna, Austria. It is nice that even with distance, I am still in contact with my friends even if we all scattered around the world. We still manage to keep in touch. Oh, I hope we can all gather and see each other soon.
I was lucky to be off during my birthday. By 1 AM, my sweet hubby woke me up with a cake and lighted candles to greet me on my birthday. I am a lucky gal for having a a great guy for a husband. He had the cake delivered at home without me knowing, hehe.
And he didn’t only surprised me with a cake. He also got a beautiful Fujifilm camera. I am in love! It is my dream camera and he made it come true. I love you, my dear hubby. I was playing around with my new toy and I am loving all the features. I am impressed with the camera. I am excited to bring it along my blogger events to try it out. I did a couple of product shots already with it and it turned out amazing.
Naj woke up too to give me a hug and a kiss too. We stayed up a little bit to play with Naj. We just love our little guy’s cute antics and his sweet smile. Then we went back to sleep. I woke ups really early to go to Mass. I have to thank God for all the blessings he showered into my life. Right after mass, I went to Starbucks to met up with a friend and ex-colleague working now in a different clinic . She was running late so I got some chance to write on my notebooks on gratefulness list and new goals for me. When she arrived, it was nice to have a chat over Toffee Nut coffee and chicken croissants.
In the evening, my family and I had a nice quiet buffet dinner at Holiday Inn Hotel. I was so full, haha… Naj also ate a lot. We arrived home with more wonderful news: my sister-in-law just gave birth to a healthy bouncy baby boy! We will be sharing a birthday, yey! I am so excited to hold him in my arms.
Thank you Lord for a wonderful week!
