I’m having a hard time starting this post because I don’t know what I want to say first. My heart hasn’t been filled with so much happiness and love in such a long time that I don’t know what to do with myself. The reason for so much joy is because my school put together a birthday party for me today and it was completely amazing, perfect and unexpected.Everyone contributed to the party by buying a beautiful, delicious cake from my favorite Novaci Bakery…and what a cake it was! My students brought me gifts and birthday cards, one in particular said “for your birthday I wish the moon will not fall so early and when down, it will bring you a clear sky and full of starts. And the first star that will shine I want it be your star“. Yes, you guest it, that’s when I started crying. Everything about today was perfect. The amount of time and effort they put into this party has completely overwhelmed me with absolute happiness. I am usually better with words, but I can’t find the right ones now to express how my heart feels. I guess this is what real, true happiness feels like. I am lucky to share this day with the people that told me today “now, you are part of our family”.
I thought about the song by Mana “Siembra Amor” and the lyrics ” Cuando das amor, recibes amor…Si siembras amor ,Siempre hay amor” (When you give love, you receive love…if you plant love, there will always be love). Thank you students, staff, and teachers who made those lyrics so true today. Each one of you took a piece of my corazoncito.
Enjoy the pictures.
