My Birthday!

As I celebrate my birthday today, I am totally torn between two realities. While I am enjoying the moments of celebration with my family, my children and my friends a piece of me is wrecked inside. It is like a video of faces is playing in my mind of children in the orphanages we just left. These children don’t have birthday parties, no birthday gifts, no cake, no one to sing Happy Birthday to them. So while I am very thankful for all that I have in my life and I am happy to celebrate the day with those I love the tears fall for those I long to comfort, to play with, to hug and hold, or to sing Happy Birthday too…..
