Did you know that 5th of August is a miraculous day? In Spain, Portugal and Latin America, the 5th of August is always remembered for "Our Lady of the Snow”. This concerns a miracle by which the Virgin Mary made snow fall on a mountain in Rome, on such a hot day, to compensate the devotion of a believer.

Actually I am a miracle baby, born on 5th of August.

My mother did not want another child after my brother and she discovered she was pregnant to me too late. And here I came…

A miracle baby on 5th of August. And I have just celebrated my 53rd birthday.

And starting with my daughter and my son people have been asking me “How do you feel?”

Sincerely I feel like life is just starting. I don’t know why but I feel like “the real thing” is just starting.

And I feel extremely blessed.

My health, my children, my friends, me being me…. There are so many things to be grateful for.

I am so thankful to everything and when I say everything it really is everything.

My hair, my eye lashes, my mouth, my ears, my nose, my eyes, my eye brows and on and on I have so much to be grateful for.

Then my daughter… my son…

Then my friends…. How many people are as blessed as I am? I’m not so sure. But I know I am.

How many people would be so blessed to have three birthday parties in a row surrounded with family and friends?

I did….

Again and again I would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to Saiye Ozyurt the Manager of Taskonaklar Butique Hotel in Uchisar, Halil Uluer the owner of Anatolian Balloons in Urgup, to Mehmet Ulku and Ismail Satilmis of Mouton Rouge and Merve Uzel of Argos Hotel in Uchisar for making such unforgettable birthday parties.

Then to Professor Emel Doğramacı who has always been there for me and for my children.

To former Ambassador of Argentina Armando Maffei.

To former Minister Kürşad Tüzmen for being there.

To Counsellor of Hungarian Embassy Zoltan Feher who drove all the way from Ankara to celebrate.

To my dear friends Derya Sarac, Gulcin Kocak, Edibe Bezircioglu, Cemal Akyuz, Sibel Sabah and Feyza Kurtulus.
To all my other friends and family members.

I am so grateful…

To all my beloved friends who sent massages from all over the world and who called me…

I am so grateful…

And first and most important of all that I have learned in the past years is to be grateful for what we have.

To understand the power and the magic of gratitude, you have to experience it for yourself.

If you practice gratitude every day it won't take long before gratitude is your natural state of being, and when that happens you will have unlocked one of the greatest secrets to life.

Try it! In no time you will experience the results.

It is a routine for me, every morning I think of the things I am grateful for. And the day I grew a year older I was thinking of how blessed I am.

Until next week keep cool and healthy!
