It's my birthday! What an exhausting year!
one might say this 33rd year of life was quite productive :)
Was a tough year though,
lots of stress, heartache and hardship,
but you all helped get me through!
Your emotional, psychological, spiritual and financial support this year during my times of crisis was truly overwhelming,
I want to acknowledge your generosity and express my most heartfelt and humble gratitude for everything each of you sacrificed to help me out this year,
Thank you so much for being there for me and being true to yourselves. :)
I wish to all of you the rest and merriment you deserve for all your hard work this year,
