We Each Are a Miracle!

Today is my birthday
 and I am thinking about the miracle of birth.

And I remember my sweet mother and how loved
she  made me feel.

And how much she loved babies.

She certainly loved MY two babies!

And I am giving thanks to HER
 and, of course, to GOD
 for the miracles of birth!

"For You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother's womb.
I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. 
My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth. 

Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written,
 every one of them, the days that were formed for me, 
when as yet there was none of them." 

Psalm 139:13-16

  11. Oh sweetie, happy belated birthday! Are you a Libra? I am, my birthday is Oct. 20th. I hope you had a blessed day full of love. Thank you so much dear Michelle for your wonderful comments, you are so generous and kind. Although I arrived two days before to help my daughter, she already had designed and orchestrated the entire FC reception, flowers and the famous sweets table plus the food luncheon...she had it covered, lol! The thing is that I did a bigger ones for my two girls, so I guess they know the customs here, as she's also been going to FC of Victoria's classmates, you see, children do make it all together in they're schools here too, except in some private schools like this one. They prepare the chilren the year before the actual FC, but since children know each other they give them the option to make it alone so everybody attends each others, which Little girls love to do so. The school is an all girls too. Enjoy your weekend.

  12. Happy birthday to you Michele. You are such a sweet and special person. I know your family must love you dearly. Congrats to Betty in winning your giveaway.

  13. And a very happy birthday to you Michelle! Definitely a day for reflection on the miracles of life! Congrats to Betty. Hope your day is warm, wonderful and filled with love!
