Then C came to me with a birthday card and a cake which she and her Daddy had decorated.
Then she came to me with the gifts.
Both father and daughter insisted on switching off the lights and singing the song and it was a wonderful way to end the long day.
I was touched beyond words and as I thanked our Heavenly Father for all that He has showered me; I also asked that He watches over them: Mummy Dearest, fiercely supportive sisters, my colleagues who have become some of my best friends. Then of course, my husband who at times tells me the truth I don't want to hear, my little girl whom I feel is growing up too fast for me to keep up and our family friends who take time off their busy schedules to pick up such meaningful gifts.
May the good Lord bless and keep all of you in good health! :)
