Thanks, all of you who dropped an SMS or a note to wish me a happy birthday. The first two SMSes I received were from people in the States. Amazing to know that I’m still remembered despite being so far away. I’m truly touched.
Faith hugs me and wishes me happy birthday with a sad smile. (Wishes, because she’s been doing this the whole evening). She’s sad that she didn’t buy me anything, or in her words “made the day special”.
To the love of my youth, my companion in life and my partner in building this home. You have made my life special. I do not claim to know what I’d have been if I never knew you, but I know that a large part of my life is made wonderful because I do.
