Birthdays Are Made Of These

It was a sun shiny Saturday morning when I woke up to two birthday love letters from Macky and my son Dandre.  Huwag nang tanungin, of course I cried like a river.  I get so emotional reading letters.  Love letters still let my guards down.

I am a Scorpio and I love being intimate in everything.  Don't be green-minded loves ha!  I just want to say that I'd prefer an intimate gathering with family and friends over a hearty lunch or dinner, than throw a big party for everyone.

The whole family! :)
Still feeling like their little princess here  With my Daddy and Mommy.
Wes, Macky (aka Daddy Practicality) the Birthday Girl in RED and Dandre
With my boys
Brothers.  Can you guess who among them is Pilyo?
So lunch it was for the whole family at Mr. Choi Restaurant at Robinsons Magnolia.  Here's what we had that mega-busog afternoon:
We ordered Fish, Chicken, Pork, Beef, Soup and some desserts too! :)  Super busog that afternoon!
The first work day after my birthday weekend, my colleagues surprised me and another birthday celebrator from the team.  We had pizza, ice cream and cake.  I was touched at their simple gesture, special pala ako sa kanila!  Chos!

Birthday Emo and Wishes
I feel so blessed simply for being remembered by my loved ones, friends, and colleagues I see everyday, not to mention the love I felt from more than a hundred Facebook greetings I got.  Just a thought, gone are the days when you get gazillion greetings from SMS or call, digital greeting na siya!

My birthday was a reminder that I am special because I am God's lovely creation (walang kokontra, birthday ko!)  That I am given another year to live according to HIS will, to do better, to inspire and have the capacity to help others, to nurture my children, to enjoy time with my loved ones and to simply live a purposeful life that He has given me.  I am humbled by all the blessings I get each day.

When you blow candles, you make wishes right?  Well, my wishes are just simple.  My wishes are: To have the best of health for myself and my family; To grow my blog to be able to inspire/help more; To have a steady income so I may continue to support my parents, send my kids to school and be able to help others in need.

To all of you who remembered, THANK YOU!
