  16. Happy birthday and all the days after! Your choice of words is clearly carefully chosen and reflects who you are today. I feel like I have learned so much about you that is reflected in this slice: how important your family is to you and the connections you make with other people, your interest in the world beyond your local community, that you value being healthy, that you are a humble, giving, person who is oh so deserving of another year filled with joy and blessings beyond belief!
