I am so thankful for me!
The way that you have created me
The family that you have given me
How I look when you look at me
The things that I love to do
and the things I hate to do.
The things that bring tears to my eyes
and the things that bring life to my eyes!
All of these things are a part of who I am and who you have made me to be.
YOU have molded me and shaped me into who I am today….
Right now………in this place in time.
I want to thank you God
For the life I’ve lived thus far
For the good times and the not so good
For the things that have made me laugh to the things that have scared my heart.
I may not be perfect but I am……… perfectly broken just for you
You’ve taken all my pieces and your placing them right where you want them to be
Your turning me into who you’ve always wanted me to be
rather than who I’ve tried to be.
So today Lord
As I celebrate the gift of life
I want to thank you for
and Most of all NEVER giving up on me.
I don’t have any Birthday wishes this year. My only request is that if your going to say Happy Birthday please tell me something I’ve said or done that has touched your heart.
What do you think of….. when you think of me?
What is it that would remind you of me…… if I were to die tomorrow?
Please don’t wait till I’m gone to say the things you wish you’d said when I was alive.
Don’t save the best for last……..because it may never be heard.
And if you don’t know me then do this for someone you do know……..someone you love.
Don’t assume that they already know…….what if they don’t?
The greatest gift you can give someone on their Birthday is the knowledge that they are valuable, appreciated and loved for who they are.
Once a year everyone needs a little reminding of what it is that makes them special.
Anyone can say Happy Birthday! But only a friend can tell you what it is about you that cannot be replaced by another.
Remind them of their value and purpose, that is beyond what they can see.
So lets tell one another what it is that we enjoy about each other rather than assuming they know!
