It’s all about birthdays

Birthday, the day we were born. The day we first saw the light, the day we first saw the creation of God. The day were everybody got excited to celebrate it with family or friends. Birthday means gifts and party, but mine was different. The last time i remembered,  i celebrated my birthday when i was 5 o 6 years old, can’t forget about it coz’ that’s the time i started to hate dogs, not really hate but i just don’t like dogs now. Our dog bit me while eating chicken outside our house.

Unlike others, i’m not excited with my birthday. Got envious with my friends and classmates who has party every year, lots of balloons and blew their cakes. As much as i want a party like that, but i can’t, my parents can’t afford it. Oh, i’m not complaining, we’re not fortunate as others and i understand. I celebrated my birthdays by going to church and pray, bonus if my mother cook a “pancit” for long life,  “biko” (sweet rice treat o sticky rice cake) or “suman”(rice cake wrapped in banana leaf) .:-) Thankful to some of my friends way back high school days, for making some of my birthdays memorable, although no foods but at least the laughter and the effort to make me happy is unforgetable. And oh, i dont have pictures too since we don’t have camera.

When i started college, that’s the time i experienced something new in my birthday. Cards, flowers, “mañanita” ( a morning serenade to a birthday celebrant before sunrise,this is some kind of a surprise). Gifts from BF.etc…

This is my first time big birthday celebration ever. With my boardmates and friends at Busaing compound. Sorry no pictures of the foods, i lost my usb and i only have this pics in my album (hard copy). And i’m 4 months pregnant here. Thanks to my fiancé for giving me this kind of party even though he’s not around to celebrate. image

These are all the birthdays i have celebrated. Thanks to my ever supportive husband for giving me all that i need in life, and also “wants”.:-)

That’s why now, i made sure to capture every special moments with my kids, giving them everything as much as we could, the things we don’t have before. I don’t want my kids will experience, same as i did. That’s why we work hard for them.

I know the feeling, celebrating birthdays with nothing, even cake to blow. That’s why now, i made sure that my friends and family (especially my parents) wont forget their birthdays, by giving them surprises like cakes,flowers, o gifts.

I know it’s not about material things or big parties that makes our birthdays special, thats only a bonus. But admit it, we all wish for it.:-)

What’s important is, we have to thank our creator, for giving us another year to enjoy his creation and to be a blessing to everybody. To appreciate everything that we have and be contented.

God bless you all.

xoxo,
