A quarter century passed in a blink of an eye.
Laughter, sweat, and tears became impossible to count.
But even with the uncountable arguments, heartbreaks, and tearful nights,
I have received even more blessings, joy, and love.
Because from birth, the greatest gift I have ever received is love.
“What would you like to get as your birthday gift?”
The thing is I never prepared an answer for this.
A gift is a sincere thought.
That the gifter sees this item and thought,
“she will love this” or “this is just the thing for her”
The best part of receiving a gift is the suspense as you open the wrapping,
wondering what this person decided to give.
It could range from anything cheap and useful, to something branded and expensive.
But you would never know unless you decide to open the wrapping.
I have asked God for many gifts,
many gifts that He decided not to give.
Not because He did not want to give,
but because He has a better gift.
A gift that He knew would be just the best for me.
A gift that was unexpected when I unwrapped it, but God knew that I will love.
A gift that God knew that I will take care of.
A gift that will last a lifetime.
An early birthday gift for me,
is the day you were born.
Let’s put our hearts as one,
for the long awaited celebration.
As we watch the rise of the sun,
giving in into basic temptation.
When two sunrises become one,
that is when our souls become one.
As we blow the light of the sun,
the moon shines through the sheets.
Even when the world spins around,
it cannot stop the heart beats.
Hold my hands and make a wish,
don’t tell me but share it with me.
Under this blanket we’re invincible,
there is nothing that is not fixable.
No secrets are kept,
no tears are wept.
Live long, my love who stays.
Together we are one.
It’s a new day and all is fine,
as another year had passed and you’re still mine.
The real countdown will begin,
for the special day we’ve been expecting.
For this year will be the second,
of another joint celebration.
For my love who stays,
who lights up my world with fire.
John is my dance teacher and he had his 22nd birthday a few weeks ago, so we gave him a surprise and caught it all on camera. We had so much fun, he fell for the prank so hard. I will never forget that moment. In fact, I still watch this video everyday to keep my mood up!
