If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to,
no one with which to share the beauty of the stars,
to laugh with, to touch,
what would be your purpose in life?
It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning.
This is harmony.
We must discover the joy of each other,
the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.

Mitsugi Saotome

Today it is my birthday and I am now 36 years old :) Toek surprised me with a beautiful song he composed for me and it is the most beautiful gift someone ever gave me.

Now we are going to meet my family for a small gathering in the sun..... I am so happy.....
I wish you all a lovely, shared day and when you press the pink button you can hear the song :)

I am moved by the quote from Mitsugi Saotome. So true. And wow, how romantic to have a song composed for you! Have a wonderful wonderful birthday.

Would it be ok with you if I added your blog to my bloglist?

Take care,

Sas, I had to write again. I just listened to the song Toek composed for you, it's so...beautiful and peaceful and romantic! Tears ran down my cheeks...what can I say? And I don't cry easily..! You deserve the best! Lots of hugs on your special day, Rupa
