So today I get myself a busy day at work. It's not difficult to get one these days. I call for a team meeting after work. Hence, it's not only busy but also a long day. There isn't much on the agenda actually. It is just that I, as self-centred as I can be, need the team to be with me. I smile shamelessly that I have the team with me, to sing for me and to slice and share the feel-good, candle less cake that is simply scribbled with "Just 36, a small number".
It's my birthday today. I am happy for the song and wishes. I am thankful that the Tiramisu tastes good. I am appreciative of the past and present. I am hopeful for the future. I owe it all to the Maker. Yet, I feel lonely in this crowd and so faraway. It feels faraway from where it all begins. It feels faraway from those I wish that they were to be here with me.
Nevertheless, thank you for this gift. With your will, I will try to be a better man in this given life.
