So many times when a birthday arrives, people think of all the gifts
money can buy - especially as people think, "What can I get for so and so's birthday?". In life, sometimes what money can buy isn't what is important or what is cherished. People struggle to pick out the PERFECT birthday gift. So on your birthday quickly approaches, we thought we would tell you what our 'vision' of the perfect gift is:
Unconditional love, knowing that no matter what someone loves you. You don't have to be perfect, you just have to be you. You don't hear, "If you love me you would......or if you love me you wouldn't.........", but you hear just simply, "I love you".
Knowing that no matter what life throws at you, you'll be ok. It may take a while to work through it all, but in the end you're alright. You may be changed because of one thing or another, but your still here and your growing into the amazing person you've always been - there is just MORE to you now, never less.
Understanding that you are strong. Strong enough to grow and flourish even though life is tough sometimes. Not necessarily 'seeing the light at the end of the tunnel' but running that obstacle course no matter how hard it is and crossing that finish line,
then realizing you won!
Having peace. The peace to know you are who you are meant to be, not what everyone thinks you should be. Having the peace and time to find out who you are, and realizing you really like who you have become. The peace of knowing you aren't like everyone else and its ok.
All these precious gifts we want for you............
...................because that is our gift in life, YOU!
always & forever
