It’s a happy day

It seems that November is a festive month for many. For Americans there’s Thanksgiving, but there also so many people that are born during this time. It must have something to do with Valentine’s Day being in February. November is always a festive time for me. I celebrate two very important dates, my wedding anniversary on the 15th and my life on the 27th – Today πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

In spite of being sick all week, today I was awoken with a kiss from the sun and big hug from my five year old girl. It is a beautiful day that welcomed me with hope and life.

Due to how sick I’ve been, the creative juices have been put on hold. Below you will find two poems I’ve posted before. The first I wrote last year on my birthday and the second I wrote last year as a part of a ‘love’ series I did.



I’ve always loved my birthday. For me, it’s my special day. However, a good friend of mine once told me of the Philippine birthday tradition. The one having the birthday is the one who throws the party. It’s like they’re saying, “My life is a gift to you.” Isn’t that beautiful? In saying that, I would like to gift you with a few free mp3 tracks from my CD, Coram Deo. Just leave me a comment and let me know and I will send them to you.


Poem, Spiritual



Today is thanksgiving in the USA, and I have a lot to be thankful for. I have a great husband and two beautiful children. We are all healthy and happy. I live in a warm sunny place that does wonders for the serotonin levels in my brain. I’m thankful for my home, friends and faith. I’m thankful for my purpose in life and the deep contentment and peace in my heart. Β And…… most of all I’m thankful for my life. Today is my birthday.

I am no longer a spring chicken. The days of my youth have passed. And you know what? I’m ok with that. No problem at all. My security and contentment do not rest in what others make of me. It doesn’t rest in how I look or what I can do. It lies in something far deeper than passing things. It lies in something eternal.

Do you struggle with insecurity? Are you content with who you are? Where does your worth and security lie?

A huge Happy Thanksgiving to all of you beautiful Americans. I am thankful for you.

Yes, the photo is of me. It was taken during a performance when I was still dancing.
