Happy Birthday to me

Happy 39th Birthday

5.18am and it wasn't even time to get up yet. My alarm was supposed to ring at 5.30am. I woke up earlier to pee (how annoying) and it was super cold. Everyone else was still in the middle of their final dream in lalaland.

The first thought that went through my head was "My knee hurts! Is this 39?" I immediately felt like a makcik (not makchic!)

I was up playing with my phone catching up with chat groups instead of going back to sleep for that extra 10 minutes or so. Woke my kids up and did the usual thing.

After drop off, I thought of trying somewhere new for breakfast. I went to The Bread Shop Damansara Heights but unfortunately, it was still closed. Dont know where else to go, we went to La Bodega Bangsar for breakfast instead. Ordered the usual thing. The Big Breakfast and shared.

My husband is the best! As usual, during any of our birthdays, he will not go to work or try not to so he can spend time with us. Today, is no different. He spent the whole day with me. Alhamdulillah. He took me to KLCC to get me my birthday gift. It was not what I had expected or wanted (I was hoping it was a bag) but he had something else in mind.

After picking the kids up from school, he took them to Bangsar Village to buy my presents from them. Since I was not wanted there, I walked up to Telawi and got myself a nice foot massage. Oh My! That was a good RM39 spent! (They had a promotion for rush hour RM39 per hour). It was soooo good and exactly what I needed. I dont know why but being 39 is really tiring! I didnt do much today but I felt exhausted.

No fancy dinners at Nobu (I wish) or no extravagant celebration, just the 4 of us at home with normal home cooked meal (By my maid. I aint cooking tonight!). Alhamdulillah I feel happy and contented.
I have a good life.

I tried to take everything in today and just feel absolutely happy and thankful. It feels good. It really does. I dont need anything else. I have everything I need. My husband initially asked me what I wanted for my birthday. Honestly speaking, I want nothing more than what I already have. I dont want another bag (but if you give me, I won't say no, of course), I dont want a new car (but if u want to buy for me, I'll still say thank you!) but to have me ask for something I want…… I really can't give you an answer.
I have everything I need.

So many friends, near and far texted me to wish me. Some are friends I haven't spoken to in years. That truly made my day. I got flowers from some girlfriends, that made my day too. Texts from my mum and brothers, that made my day. My kids giving me ugly handwritten notes, that made my day. Birthday song sang by my husband in the bathroom while I was brushing my teeth, that made my day. Looking in the mirror and my makeup is on point, that made my day too. So really, what more do I want but just this….?

Thank you Allah for giving me this life. I know I bitch about life sometimes but I'm only human. Deep down, I am happy for this life you gave me. InsyaAllah, I will try to be the best I can be and to always be happy. My wish is for this to last forever, for good health for not only myself but also for my family and friends. For us to be protected by Allah, give us guidance so that we stay on the right path. For our enemies, if we have any, for them to be happy so they won't care about our happiness. For my kids to be solihin and solehah, outstanding in their performance dunia & akhirat. That's all I want.

Thank you for all your kind wishes. Alhamdulillah for a good 39th Birthday.
