Happy Birthday to Chet & Beatriz

It is very seldom that two birthdays in the family fall on the same day which is the case today.  I hope both of you enjoy your birthdays  and somebody gets to sing for you a happy birthday song and with a beautiful birthday cake with its candles to blow your wishes to come true.

To Chet, probably there will be so many candles and so little cake!  But is it really the cake that matters or the number of candles in the cake?  I admire your constancy in your devotion and in your discipline in maintaining a sound mind and body. May God continue to shower you with His blessings.

To Beatriz, I wish you the best in life ahead.  Last year you have made an accomplishment by obtaining a very coveted post and having passed that board exam to put you in your present job position.  It was more than luck, it was a lot of hard work and continued perseverance towards your goal.  May this birthday lead to a new door of challenges and opportunities.  

To both of you, Carpe Diem.  Seize the moment.

Why be saddled with this thing called life expectancy?  Of what relevance to an individual is such a statistic?  Am I to concern myself with an allotment of days I never had and was never promised?  Must I check off each day of my life as if I am subtracting from this imaginary hoard?  No, on the contrary, I will add each day of my life to my treasure of days lived.  And with each day, my treasure will grow, not diminish.  ~Robert Brault,   

 Lots of happiness to both of you, I wish today.
