A few… no, many years back, my mother gave birth to a healthy baby girl, and she named her, Cinderella. (well I don’t know whose idea was it to name the baby ‘Cinderella’. It could be my mother, it could also be my father) Cinderella was born with a mole on her upper right lid and unlike most people with dimples, she was born with a single dimple. Still cute, nonetheless. Ha ha ha :P
To make stories short, her name has been shortened to Cindy but everyone at home called her with another name (that I won’t mention here). Due to privacy reason lah bah.
One Saturday morning, while she was in her bedroom, jumping on the bed with her friends, Lu Ting and Ah Wei, she noticed a figure standing in front of her. She couldn’t tell whether it’s a boy or a girl, but what’s obvious was that the figure, dressed in white with golden linings was smiling at her. And when she noticed that big, beautiful pair of white wings… she jumped out of the bed and ran towards her nina (grandmother). Upon telling what she saw to both her nina and mother, her mother ran into the room and touched the bed where Cinderella saw the figure. It was cold and smelled of sweet scents.
She never saw the figure again.
People said that if you’ve seen an angel, your life will be blessed abundantly. I’d like to believe that. I believe that God has blessed (and is still blessing) me and my family with abundance of grace, peace, love and happiness. Tho there are times when I feel like I am the most unlucky person in the world, He will send someone or something to prove that I’m wrong. :)
It’s my birthday today. My family is not around to celebrate it with me like when I was a child, but I can still feel the love like the first birthday I could remember celebrating. There might not be surprises waiting at the door (like a white cedar chest maybe), but their love is ALWAYS around me, birthday or no birthday.
Happy Birthday, me! ^_______^
