HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Di (my far-away Aussie 'frogette' friend)

 

 

now before you grow another day older,

take the time to read the following

and know it comes from someone thinking of you

and wishing you the very best this day ;)

 

 

 

 

May you find serenity and tranquility

in a world you may not always understand.

May the pain you have known

and the conflict you have experienced

give you the strength to walk through life

facing each new situation

with optimism and courage.

 

Always know that there are those

whose love and understanding

will always be there

even when you feel most alone.

 

May you discover enough goodness in others

to believe in a world of peace.

May a kind word, a reassuring touch,

a warm smile, be yours every day of your life,

and may you give these gifts as well as receive them.

 

Remember the sunshine when the storm seems unending.

Teach love to those who know hate,

and let that love embrace you as you go into the world.

 

May the teaching of those you admire

become part of you,

so that you may call upon them.

 

Remember, those whose lives you have touched

and who have touched yours are always a part of you,

even if the encounters were less

than you would have wished.

 

May you not become too concerned

with material matters, but instead place

immeasurable value on the goodness in your heart.

 

Find time in each day to see the beauty

and love in the world around you.

Realize that each person has limitless abilities,

but each of us is different in our own way.

 

What you may feel you lack in one regard

may be more than compensated for in another.

What you feel you lack in the present

may become one of your strengths in the future.

 

May you see your future

as one filled with promise and possibility.

Learn to view everything

as a worthwhile experience.

 

May you find enough inner strength

to determine your own worth by yourself,

and not be dependent on another's judgements

of your accomplishments.

 

May you always feel loved.

Yes, Di, "May you always feel loved....."

 No matter how far away we are from each other and even if we never meet, our greetings, love and warm wishes can span the continents more easily today than ever before.

And these wishes for many many more, my dear.
