I turned 37 today. Asked what I'd like as birthday gifts, I couldn't think of anything I want. I guess as long as I am accompanied by children, my days will be full of light.
So as usual we draw and play in the study.
We read the dinosaurs' stories until our eyes are brimmed with tears.
Then the boys' simple and sincere best wishes make me believe that my following year will be so wonderful as today.
Even the birthday afternoon tea party is very low-key. However, see what a lovely time we have had by looking at the almost-empty plates.
Wherever I go, I have the fabulous company of children. Well, I come near to believing that I enjoy high popularity among kids.
Though I am one year older, I feel like a rose in bloom inside. What I see in front of my eyes is more and more beautiful.
