Cycle was her prized possession. She clearly knows riding it makes her stay fit, healthy and its also a good hobby. She stayed near one of the esteemed golf courses in Johannesburg. She will feel her best in the tranquility with her cup of coffee standing on her balcony in the early morning with birds’ morning call like a whole lot of a song. She felt it was her day!
Overwhelmed with the beauty of nature with its azure and red sky, a beautiful white duck along the way side of the pond nearby, she must have forgotten that it was her birthday. It was her habit, I can say! She forgets the world every time she catches the sight of the alluring skies, the graceful swimming duck in the nearby pond, listening to birds screeching and the touch of gentle breeze on her skin!
Her husband came behind her without her knowledge when she was admiring the beauty of nature. To her awe, he closed his eyes turned around her, kissed her on her forehead and said, “Happy Birthday to my wonderful sweet woman of my life!” He must have known her that she is not the person who can be appeased with materialistic gifts.
This small caressing just melted her soul and she smiled gently at him. She was the entire world to him, his family, his – everything! He was actually planning to take her for a romantic and wonderful dinner in one of the luxurious hotels on her birthday. It was his long time yearning to go like that. The evening came and they went off to the hotel. Their tables were already booked by him in advance and to her amazement, their table was filled with beautiful red roses, a pair of scented candles and soft jazz of romantic music coming from somewhere to their auditory perception. She was awestruck with all the arrangements that were there, just for her on her birthday.
To their surprise, this entire incident came under their local newspaper column and awarded them the best couples of their locality!
