Life is fleeting years rush past . . .

and little girls grow up so fast!

Let me take time out to be

glad that mine's still here with me.

And though I'm busy through the day,

let me take time out to play . . .

Let me take time out to smile,

to linger with her for a while . . .

To invite her under the table for tea and dress up silly as can be.

Let me take time out to sing and dance

and skip and twirl and swing . . .

To splash in puddles when it rains

and make her fancy daisy chains.

Let me take time out to hear

about the things that she holds dear.

Let me tuck her in at night,

hear her prayers, turn off the light.

And for one more moment let me pray

and thank God that we shared this day...

 

Thank you God, for giving me another year of life.

Thank you for all the people who remembered me today by sending cards, and letters, gifts and good wishes.

Thank you for all the experience of this past year,

For times of success which will always be happy memories,

For times of failure which reminded me of my own weakness and of my need for you,

For times of joy when the sun was shining,

For times of sadness which drove me to you.

Forgive me for the hours I wasted,

For the chances I failed to take,

For the opportunities I missed this past year.

Help me in the days ahead to make this the best year yet,

And through it to bring good credit to myself,

Happiness and pride to my loved ones, and joy to you.

Amen...

It's my 17th Birthday today (hahahaha).  I'm just thankful for everything, all the blessings in my life.  Every engaged in a miracle, a blue sky and oceans, white clouds, green leaves, the black curious eyes of my daughters. All miracles...

I'm in beautiful island now for my october spiritual journey. Because our birthdays are our soul’s visionary days. Our special connection with the infinite is more powerful than ever on our birthday. And then continues for something my self what i have been trying to do for really long but have not started it yet. I decide  upgrade my Scuba Certification next week.

I must say, it’s been a pretty interesting ride so far. As I look back over the years and many phases of my Iife. I realize how each stage, success, stumble, triumph and heartache has had a significant impact on where I stand right now. And despite the rough patches, I love it all. I’ve learned a lot over the past year, about myself, my strengths, my faith, my weaknesses, about who I am and who I want to be.

And to many life lessons in this  year:

Be grateful for everything. The good, the bad, the ugly. Our entire life is a precious gift. The pleasure, the pain  it’s all part of our path.

In being true to yourself, you can’t possibly make everybody else happy. Still, it’s better to risk being disliked for living your truth than to be loved for what you are pretending to be. It's so hard for me coz i'm a Libran.

Everybody comes into our life for a reason. It is up to us to be open to the lesson they are meant to teach. The more someone rubs us the wrong way, the greater the lesson. Take notes.

Hurt people hurt people. Love them anyway. Although, it’s totally okay to love them from a distance.

You have to feel it to heal it. Bring your fears and weaknesses front and center and shine a blazing spotlight on them because the only way out is through. The hurt of facing the truth is So worth it in the long run, I swear.

Forgiveness is not so much about the other person. It’s about you and for you so that you can gain the peace and freedom you deserve. Forgive quickly and often.

Let your soul shine!  There is nobody else on this earth just like you. Step into your truth wholeheartedly and live and breathe your purpose.

Don’t take life too seriously! Nobody gets out alive anyway. Smile. Be goofy. Take chances. Have fun.

Sometimes we outgrow friendships. It doesn’t mean they’re bad or you’re bad. It just means you’re on different paths. Hold them in your heart, but when they start to hurt or hold you back, it’s time to give space or let go.

Our bodies are our vehicle to our dreams. Treat them with love and fuel them with the best health to feel vibrant and energized. But, never obsess over image. Looks are subjective and will fade in time, anyway. Feeling good, healthy, and comfortable in our own skin is what matters most.

 

Today, I want to say Happy Birthday to My Self and My Best Buddy.

Age is just a number, but the higher it gets, the more wisdom and life experience we’ve amassed.

So embrace it, love it, and enjoy it fully!!!

And thank for my beautiful angels. I want to be the best mom I can be  mocuishle... and embrace both of you with all my love.

Thank you for familly and friends who send me birthday wishes by email, by via sosmed, by chat, and call  me in the morning... Meant a Lot to me!

Again, thank you all...

 

 

 

For my beautiful daughters, I was blessed with two of you...

You will never know how proud I am of all the things you do.

You came into my world, so tiny and so small...

And I was in awe at the wonder of it all.

Then you placed your little hand in mine...

There was no denying, my heart was yours 'til the end of time.

I have watched you both throughout the years, laugh, cry and grow...

And it is difficult to know that someday I will have to let you go.

I just can't imagine a day of my life without you...

Because you're a part of me and my love for you is true.

So just remember, no matter how old you are or where you may be...

There's someone who needs you and loves you and that someone is me!

 

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships.

These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...

Remember, to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person might not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

Bob Moorehead, Words Aptly Spoken

 

 

In Hebrew Shalom is peaceful, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity.

 

For My Beloved Shalom,

Love is not easy to put into words, especially a mother’s love, the depth of which is unfathomable.

When I look at you now, my beautiful girl. I remember feeding you, nursing you. I had to be patient and willing to wait. You would drink slowly, mindfully. Filling yourself to prepare to be awake, aware and engaged in everything you did. I watched you grow this way, from sitting up, to crawling, to walking, to running, to sprinting, to climbing, dancing, coloring, playing, and practicing yoga with me. Everything you do, you make it look effortless because you took the time to learn, to watch and to know first.

I see you as a newborn in my arms in the shadows of midnight. Sweet baby girl, I can’t believe your Kindergarten year is over. Everyone told me it would go quickly and of course they were right. You survived a year of firsts, new friends, new school, new routine, and you did it all in stride. Your Mom survived too, although I think you handled it better than me.

I’m a little sad. Not because you are growing up, that’s natural and wonderful and expected, but because... Someday you’ll leave to make your own dreams and discover your own adventures. And I want that for you. But secretly, I’m already crushed at the reality that will be. You, and Kak Ruth  are the answer to my dreams. What a gift you’ve given me by just being you.

Talk about you and Kak Ruth . You love each other so much. You are like limbs of the other, Ruth and Shalom, Shalom and Ruth, perfect together, made for each other. You are yin and yang, a perfect balance. I feel blessed to watch your lives as sisters, as friends. You have a partner, a witness to your life in each other. Take care of your relationship, your bond. Love each other and hold your differences as a gift not a disadvantage. Help one another through life and never leave or hang up with out an I love you. Your favorite line is, “I can do it by myself.” Yes, I know you can, but sometimes let others help you.

As much as a mother raises her daughter, so does a daughter raise her mother. You have taught me many things as I have watched you grow. From you I have learned the power of a tender heart as I have witnessed your quiet kindness to others all of your life. You taught me how to find joy in the moment. You have the gift of turning the mundane into amusement. It reminds us to relax and not take everything so seriously. And you taught me about courage. Yes, like your name... In Hebrew the meaning of the name Shalom is peaceful, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity. You are the daughter that every mother dreams of having. I could not be more thankful for you.

Our family life has been marked by transition. Please know that I am not a perfect Mom. But I promise to always do my best. Each chapter has a specific lesson that God, in His all knowing wisdom, sees that you must learn. Painful chapters draw us near to Him, and joyful chapters illuminate the glory and wonder of our world. Both are important. 

God will guide you for all the time become a honest and loving woman. You will always be wonderful, you will always be brave, you will always be beautiful, you will always be intelligent, you will always be strong, you will always be kind, you will always be perfect in my eyes. I’m proud of you, now and forever and I’m so excited to watch you grow.

Love always and forever,

Your Mom.
