A birthday reflection & Phalaenopsis sp. Orchids

Yesterday was my birthday and I started with a praise and prayer to Him and a quote from Oprah Winfrey… “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”
Some people say they don’t enjoy celebrating their birthdays once they’ve started getting older. Not me! I am 18 years younger than all of you who are 75 😉

Simply all my simple favorites – Chicken Rice, Char Siu, Teh-C-Peng, Salak Pondoh – on my day. Life is to be celebrated. I know that life is not always great. There are some hard times to get through, and we just do the best we can.

In the midst of enjoying birthday wishes, many photo files and random memories… one stood out in my mind… my Mom, whose fervent prayers have given me strength along my journey. I am always in awe when I witness her expressed thoughts, generosity and kindness to those in need. Mom, you are always a big part of my celebration.

These are photos of Phalaenopsis Orchids in various colors rendered in crosshatch brush strokes, prepared for Thank You e-cards.
