Oh my goodness. I had a realllllllllllllly emotional night last night. Sorry if I scared anyone but I was so comforted by a few things. 1. That the yoga pose Savasana (resting pose) can evoke releasing of emotional toxins (boy.. have I had a lot of that in the past!) 2. The BFF and my friend Layla were telling me sometimes that happens with the trauma of surgery and anesthesia. That makes total sense as well, I felt really …. unreal. If that makes sense?
I felt bad because the husband was all excited to take me out to dinner last night (since today/my birthday he has to work late). I was emotional and didn’t know why, my brain was telling me that everything is great!!! The surgery was successful and this is a step towards becoming parents. When we got home, the hubs told me to do the savasana pose to help my body rest. As I was doing the pose and concentrating on breathing…. the tears came, I couldn’t stop. On a different note, doesn’t our dinner (above) look so delicious? I love Cantonese food so much!
I woke up this morning feeling a bit back to normal. The BRO messaged me and kept telling me to get on FaceTime and when I did… the fam wished me happy birthday!!!! My MIL/FIL hid a giant card in our home when they were in Shanghai and had me look for it this morning. Isn’t it adorable??
Inside it says “Our dear daughter. On this special day, we wish you all the dreams to come true. We are so pleased to let you know that we are proud to have you being one of the family members. We love you and hope that we can be staying together in your next birthday. Happy birthday! Dad & Mom”
Tears. Hehe. Tears. (After I got off camera of course hehe)
Since the hubs works late today, he totally spoiled me with a yummy breakfast and foot massages! I’m truly blessed that he is seriously an amazing husband. He takes such good care of me and really knows how to make me feel special. The spa even gave me a gift for my birthday. YAY!
Oh my… now onto the gifts. Amongst many things the hubs already gave me…. H&M and Uniqlo had a CRRRRRRAZY sale. I bought quite a few shirts (thanks hubby!) for myself since I lost some weight from yoga and my clothes are a little big. So now I have some (cheap) clothes that fit me! The hubs bought me a beautiful purse and a passport cover (he has one so he thought I should too)! I love that he is so awesome at style, I don’t really have style… I usually have him do the shopping for me. But I do have to admit, it was fun going through the sales today.
And one of my favorite birthday moments? My niece, Claire, wearing her “Auntie loves me” shirt and chatting with us the moment I woke up. I love her little smile, her waves and her eyes when she sees us. Fills my heart with joy. I also loved waking up to my husband hugs and kisses and him screaming “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!”. And of course my BFF always, always talking to me, every single day and especially today! Good lord, she’s my BFF for a reason, she’s amazing.
Then there are alllllllllllllllllllll of my friends (FB, email, texts, comments), all of youuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!! My goodness. If you gals were trying to make me feel beyond loved, you succeeded!!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! I’m beaming, BEAMING with happiness. Feeling back to normal, feeling so happy on my birthday. Feeling positive!
Happy birthday to me and thank you day to you, my friends!
