I write to you again. This time it is only going to be a short account of one of the most special days I have had so far. And no points for guessing, it was my 24th Birthday.
Ever since I was a little girl, my birthdays have been the most awaited events of the year. A grand one. The credit goes to my parents to have always made it to be like a festival. Wishes, gifts, and that inexplicable feeling of it being only my day. Nothing could steal it away from me.
After 24 years, absolutely none of it has changed. In fact it has only become even more grand. Every person around me still makes me feel like a princess that day. I have this overwhelming feeling from within.
It is true that I am turning a year older. Many would not really consider it as a happy moment. But for me, it still remains that one day of the year I wait for most eagerly...
It ain't only about the material luxuries. The gifts and the presents. But it is about the wishes, the blessings, and me making myself feel special. People I not in touch with the entire year make it a point to bless me that day. Friends, families, and even acquaintances. I get calls from overseas... Dubai, US, Australia.
I pamper myself that day and give in to all the temptations and luxuries. There is absolutely no trace of denial. It is an esctatic feeling.
And so it was even today. Apart from all the hugs and kisses, which are priceless, my Baba gifted me a phone. My Aai paid for my relaxing day at spa and made the most superlicious lunch slogging for me the whole day. My lil sister bought me footwear and ordered the most yummy rum cake. Achu treated me with everything I love. And the gang of my closest friends made it a full house for dinner!
Could I have asked for anything more? I dont think so. And yet there was. Thousands of wishes on calls, Whatsapp, and Facebook. I haven't replied to most yet but plan to do it soon...
So dear God, make sure to make all my Birthdays as special. Always. And I know you will. You don't really have a choice since you have given me such wonderful people around!
Thank You Dear God,
I am Glad you Love me.
