" A gift consists not in what is done or given, but in the intention of the giver or doer."
-Lucius Annaeus Seneca
16th of August.
Most people pass this day by doing their everyday activities but not me. Today, I celebrate the day I was born :)
Already sixteen years have passed since I first arrived in this world. Already sixteen years since I first felt love from people around me.
And even after sixteen years, I still feel it not just from my family now but from my friends too.
So I'd like to take this opportunity to thank every single person who remembered me on my birthday. You guys don't know how loved I feel after all your greetings! Gift or No Gift, what's important for me is that you took a few seconds of your time to make me feel special <3 I just can't express how grateful I am :')
|So yeah, this is me a few years ago posing for le camera :)) Hihi ^_^|
|And that's me on the right (with the yellow lifevest) with my Cuz :D Haha!|
I felt very overwhelmed with all the greetings I've received throughout the day (and in advance!) via Facebook Wall posts, Text Messages, Facebook Messages, Tweets, Personal Greetings, "electronic greetings" etc. Seriously, I was really surprised by the greetings I received from the people that I really never expected! Haha :) Those who made extra effort too are greatly appreciated. Thank you!! :* [The pictures were VERY Pretty :D]
