The Big Three-O

30Yours truly turns thirty today!!

Looking back at the last thirty years of my life, I am so happy and contented to be where I am right now; to be surrounded by people who love and care for me – near and far. I have a loving husband (so blessed to be married to my soul-mate) and family, a small but close circle of friends (it’s a shame we don’t all live in the same city though), a home to come home to, a secure job, and not forgetting, a pet dog who probably loves me more than he loves himself. I feel like God has given me so much when I haven’t done much to deserve all this. His grace is always overflowing and I cannot thank Him enough.

Therefore this year, I’d like to make some changes in my life, starting from baby steps. I’d like to contribute more towards others this year – making use of the skills I’ve acquired throughout the years and the talents I’ve been gifted with. The joy of giving is so much more than the joy of receiving!

I pray that now that I’m a year older, I will be wiser intellectually, richer spiritually, healthier physically, and calmer mentally. I pray that I will be kind and gentle – in my words, actions and thoughts. And I also pray that I will continue to be inquisitive in learning and exploring new things. Amen.

Happy birthday Jess!
