Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday to me! happy birthday dear Ruby, happy birthday to Me!!!!!!!!
So today I’m turning *gasp* 27, and once again i realised that in truth I’m still young. Yes, we don’t know what will happen and we have no idea how long we’ll still be around, but i do know that in the scheme of things 27 is still very young.
In 27 years I’ve certainly come a long way from the little green eyed girl who wouldn’t stop talking, singing and showering the world with her little smiles. hmmmm…..wait, i still have green eyes, I still talk too much, I love singing and I still shower the world with smiles…..but these days my eyes are filled with a lot more knowledge and sadly also a touch of sadness. Because I no longer believe that nothing bad will ever touch me, and I no longer believe that I’ll forever be safe.
But don’t worry, those green eyes are also filled with gratitude, love, joy and lots of happiness. I am blessed beyond comprehension. I have a fantastic life, a wonderful family, a great job, awesome friends and most of all I have a heavenly Father who keeps me safe in His arms, with a promise that He’ll never let go. And then I can’t help to think that maybe those little green eyes aren’t filled with sadness, but rather wisdom, compassion for others and understanding. Come to think of it…..nope, no sadness;)
I love my life, and I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve had so far. For the chances I’ve grasped with both hands, even if some of them weren’t that successful in the end. So here’s to you Ruby! Happy, happy birthday……let’s hope there’ll be plenty more:)
