My April child

“Life is a gift.Never forget to enjoy and bask in every moment you are in”. – unknown

The challenge from John this week is They Say it’s your Birthday, which is just in time for my daughter’s.

Happy Birthday to my precious Pat… you have given me so many reasons to smile in the past 28 years!

As I sit here thinking of your 28th year in this world, here are some of the hopes that I have for you.


I hope that you will always love yourself and that everytime you look in the mirror you will see how precious you are. You may say that I am only saying this because I am your mum but really you are …. because you’re strong, intelligent, talented, funny and much more.


I hope that you will always take care of yourself. I hope that you stay healthy physically, emotionally and mentally too. I am always hoping for your safety every time you go out of your house and that you get back home to your bed at night safely.

I hope that whatever decisions you make in life makes you happy . Because that will make mumma happy too. Being a solo traveller in 2017 made me all nervous but was also happy that you did because it made you more confident and responsible (especially when you lost your phone haha)


I hope that you find somebody to love and share your life with. I know you will say “Mum, Shut up!”, but of course every parent would love that for their baby. I know Papa will be as happy too like when he danced with you during your formals.

I hope that you find a job that you will love and treasure for a long time. I know you are only new in this current job, so I am hoping that you will stay long in this one …or if not then the next!

Remember your first job at Wendy’s?

I hope that you’ll be able to enjoy life and have fun and laugh a lot! I know you already do that but that is still my wish for you that you will be with people that makes you happy.

I hope that you have had happy memories of you life… because I know I do. Hope you can look back and not have any regrets.

Lastly, I hope you know that you are so loved. Though we don’t live with each other, I am always thinking of you and You are always in my mind and heart.
