Sofiyah's 11th Birthday
Today is Sofiyah's 11th Birthday. She is my youngest daughter. This morning she woke up early to school. Excited because she's bringing 35 goody bags to give to her classmates and buddies in school. I packed the goody bags into 4 large chiller bags.
When she was giving her father a hug and kisses before leaving for school, her father asked her, how come she's giving gifts to her friends. And she replied, this is how she wants to celebrate her birthday. To give rather than to receive. Somehow her answer touch my heart-strings.. Dear Sofiyah, may u grow up and be a good daughter.
At school, I helped her carry the bags up to her class on the 3rd floor. Lukily the bags were not so heavy. I gave her my loving hug and kisses and said goodbye. Will fetch her after school. I hope she has a wonderful birthday with her friends at school.
