So in India today at around 1:30 PM, it will be my daughter’s birthday over there cuz it will actually be midnight in Hyderabad, where she is serving on a mission trip!
In Hindi, I would say, “Janam Din ki badhai!”
Or in the language commonly spoken in Hyderabad, I would say ” Puttina Roju Shubakanksalu!”
As a Mom, I would say…
Happy Birthday Kayla, we miss and love you very much! Nineteen years ago, I gave birth to your tiny, wrinkly, red-headed self. I never dreamed you’d be in INDIA on your 19th birthday, although I did have dreams for you that have come true. You have far exceeded the wonderful person I hoped you’d become. I am so proud of you and I hope your day is filled with blessings and fun and miracles.
