Wow! What is this? I'm crying but I don't know why. It's a relief coming out of that dark tunnel. Gosh, will somebody please clean me up. Who is that lady, and why is she crying? Oh yea, she's my mom. I guess she's crying because she finally had me in her arms. I remember hearing her talking and singing to me. She knew I could hear her and I knew she was going to love me very much. Finally I'm clean. Hey what did you do with my mommy? I need her warmth and her soft words. OK, hey lady leave me alone, what are you doing, cleaning my butt. Only my mom can do that! Now I feel warm and happy, for I am with my mommy. What do we have here? Hey mom, I thought I was the only one? Don't tell me those three kids are my two brothers and my sister? Well they seem to like me, so I guess it's OK.
My little girl, how can I wish you a Happy 20th Birthday without remembering the first time I had you in my arms? You know, years are measured by the maturity of people, but you my child have been matured since you were a little girl. Your view of things were always surprising. How do you do it? Who did you learn it from? Have you ever asked yourself that? Well, I have an answer for you.
When you were sent to me, someone covered you with heavenly powders. These powders are sprinkled only to very special people like you. You have a mission in this world, do you know what that is? It is to be a happy person in order to pass out that happiness to people that don't have any. You have made a difference in many people's lives. You might not know it, because you are yourself and it's a natural behavior from you. It is not easy, especially when you come up to people who have a negative attitude, but I am sure you will find the words to make things better.
So, my beautiful little girl, when you are sad, remember your mission and ask yourself how can I help any one if I am sad?, and this will cheer and encourage you to see life in a different way.
