Let me also share with you some spiritual quotes that arrivedin my mailbox today –

even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

Lord, grant that I might not so much
seek to be loved as to love.

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was,
Thank you, that would suffice.

I give thanks for the unity of all creation
and for everything that has brought me to this moment.
I release my entire being to the gentle nurture of Spirit.

It was mom’s 68th birthday yesterday.  This should have been posted in my http://sunshineleneforlife.com blog  but when i was about to do so last night, i had a hard time logging in and when logged it tells me to update – checking up the front page,  realized that i lost 7 months of posts.  For now, the problem is not yet settled though I am not sure the posts will be retrieved but am waiting word from my host and other power bloggers.  For time being, let me do my updates n this blog.

Mom’s birthday just simply celebrated like my sis and her baby with our family friend came by.  They brought some bread and ice cream.  I also arrived with some flowers and a slice of watermelon.  I didn’t pick any fancy food because i know that she had tooth extraction yesterday morning.

I am so happy she has reached another year in life – 68!  still alive and kicking.  Though not as strong as she was 30 years ago, but am sure glad she is happy and thankful to God that she is still alive and get to enjoy life with her grandchildren
