Thanks for stopping by. Guess What? It’s my birthday month and I’m celebrating with a series of 33 themed post. Why, because God would have blessed me with 33 years on this earth on the 28th of this month (August). I have alot to be thankful for and I praise God for every new day, moment, experience, accomplishment I am given. Below is a list of 33 wonderful things that make me smile and thank God I am alive. What are some of your things?

33 Reasons I Smile


1.) Sunshine – It feels good on your skin and it energizes you. We need sunshine to live.


2.) Water (in all its forms)- I love to feel water on my skin, see it with my eyes, hear it with my ears, smell it with my nose and taste it with my tongue. Water is my most favorite natural resource from God.

Birthday Mail

Drop me a line at, if you would like to send me “happy birthday mail”. I love happy mail, it truly makes my day. I love postcards, greeting cards, penpal letters, souvenirs, local handmade or homemade (made by you) things. I love getting to know about the lives and hometowns of others. (Just sharing what I like, not begging for stuff). Happy Birthday mail would truly be a blessing to me, especially at this season of my life where I could use a little extra prayer and encouragement.
