This week seemed so hectic, full and busy. BBC news wasn't so fair either; Trump falling into Kim Jong Un's trap was the most read international headline. But I was deeply sadden by the death of Science Superstar, Stephen Hawking. Because I look him as a crazy idiot. Perhaps, whole science family would miss his donkey work someday. Although, he left us but his science legacy shall remain forever. We have lost a great mind and a humble human being. But on the other hand, I doubt on Trump's legacy after his presidency. Besides all these attack and uprising of serious political unbalance within and outside we did not forget to make your day special and memorable.
My Dear Daughter.
18th March, 5:36PM, 2017 will be a very special for your mom and me. It is the most awaited date for your mom and me. It is the day you came to us as a little girl. The day your mom had risked her life just to get you out. The day your mom had experienced one of the most hurtful pain in the world. The night your mom had a cat sleep because she had to feed you often. I saw these part of your mom since I was busy accompanying your mom to put you into sleep. Needless to say that your big mama and distant Aunty was also present to see you. Therefore, don't forget to Thank Your Mom, big mama and our Distant Aunty when you turn sweet sixteen.
We are happy for you since you turn one year today. Today is your First Birthday! So, unlike other day, it is a very special day for your mom and me. Today I feel as if I won some Oscar Award for something, felt completely swept up in the euphoric mood.
Perhaps this is your first birthday celebration and having you as our baby girl is the greatest gift of all. We have been waiting this moment for so long and finally it knock the door of your mom and dad. Nothing in the world seemed to me as special as today. It is your day! Nothing in the world would felt so powerful than the love I saw in your little face. Over the months you have given meaning to our life and played a significant role in reshaping our life. You have made us more responsible and watchful than before. You have showed us the triangle of love. When we feel morose, you make us feel happy and when we feel apart, you reunite us. Perhaps, you are an amazing baby girl and we are lucky to have you.
Your birthday was planned just ordinary and simple, no expensive cake to cut and not even a Happy Birthday Song was played. It was exceptionally humble and Bhutanese style. But remember, we did it worth for you to live another thousand lives and forever with us. We made an offerings of some butter lamps and recited silent prayers for your continued good health and prosperity. Nonetheless, I pray with all my heart to bless you with all the happiness in the world. Every day when the day turn into a pitch dark with nothing to be seen outside, I used to close my window shutter and used to take a quick watch at your sleep and fall in love with you.
You have always given us the room to lift our happiness and banish misery. We always enjoy each moment of our life spent with you. One good thing is we are growing old with you and it will be the sweetest memory we would carry till the very end.
We feel happy to see you grow into a strong, bold, unique and beautiful girl but you are becoming more naughty and disobedient. You already started to dominate us. You are the new boss in the town!
