Happy Birthday Emmanuel!

8 December, 2014 is Emmanuel’s birthday.  Mario Emmanuel my son who is no more would have been 11 years old.  This year I chose to celebrate happily as I moved on in life; and seen greater problems at the counseling centre; which has made my sorrow small. 

I have also been practising gratitude regularly making it a 24 /7 habit and now in the process of mastering the art; I recommend every student who come to our centre to practice gratitude. The magic in practising gratitude is that; it raises our energy and keeps us all the time happy in life; and it also impacts everything we do in our lives.

I write this post with a lot of gratitude and feel quite honoured for having had my son with me for seven years… 

I thank God for privilege he had given me to be his mom and helped me and my family experience his presence; truly I can say with faith that “EMMANUEL” was with us, an experience of God himself lighting up our lives; sharing love, joy, peace & happiness … his needs were so simple, his laughter so infectious, his smile so sweet, his language was a kiss, a hug, a warm embrace….. So human and energy so high transforming all of us from within.

So this year on his birthday we chose to cut a cake; and share what we had with the less privileged children, visited his grave, spent quiet time in prayer and surrounded ourselves with fellowship meal and thanksgiving ….

Be Blessed & Be Happy
