The brother’s 34th Birthday

Birthdays are one of the happiest days of everyone’s life.  It happens once a year that is why celebrants want to celebrate their special day with the family, friends, relatives and some invited guests.  They make sure that their day is memorable and enjoyable.  Some preferred to celebrate it simple with their family like dinner in the restaurant, beach or at their home.  Our family, usually have the birthday celebration at home and we want it simple.  The celebrant will go to church, attend a mass and light a candle.  It is our way of saying thank you to God for another year of life.

 Last September 2, 2017, was the 34th birthday of the youngest brother.  They live very far from us.  And we are glad that he chooses to celebrate his special day with us, especially my father who misses his youngest child.  It was a simple celebration as usual, but another memorable memory for him and the family because he celebrates it with us.  It shows that the brother loves and like to spend his special day with us together with his son and wife.  Just a bit sad because older brother was not able to come.  He is so tired from work and opted to rest than to travel.  And we do understand him.  Also, the brother invited some of his closest friends since high school.  I must say that he was so happy that day.  Happy birthday to my brother and I wish him all the best in life.

Wishing them all good health

July is the most celebrated month in the family.  It is because five members of the family are celebrating their birthday.  Before we usually celebrate it all at once during the birthday of my niece.  It is just a simple celebration like having dinner at home cooking the family’s favorite, and of course with cake and ice cream to make the celebration complete.  This event is very memorable because the family is complete.  It is just a simple celebration but it is special because of the presence of the very member in the family.  And that is the most important thing for us.

This year the celebration is a bit different because we celebrated it separately.  The SIL who celebrated her birthday last July 12, opted to celebrate it with her family in the province, we are invited to come but it is far plus it is the school day.  We just greeted her a very happy birthday.  My older brother whose birthday is on July 16, is busy so we decided to visit him in the city next to ours.  We had simple lunch and lots of chit-chats.  The nephew and niece whose birthday is on July 18 and 22, have their simple birthday bash at home with the family.  The last celebrant is the SIL, wife of my older brother.  There are no plans yet, I guess we will have simple dinner at home too.  Hopefully and younger brother with his wife and kid will come visit as they promised.  Anyways, to all the celebrant, happiest birthday to all of you and I wish you all good health and happiness in life always.  God bless you all!

78th Birthday of my Aunt

Yesterday, we were invited at the 78th birthday of my aunt.  It is the first that she will be celebrating her birthday in an extravagant way.  She cried because she did not expect an extravagant celebration.  Actually, her kids wanted to surprise her and shows their love and care to her especially now that the aunt is forgetful.  She often forgets the name of her kids, her siblings and other relatives.  She can’t barely recognize and can’t see clearly because of diabetes.  She can recognize us once we speak.  My aunt shows the signs of Alzheimer’s disease.  It needs a lot of patience when you are talking to her.

Anyways, the celebration went well.  All invited person comes especially the one she requested, her younger sister.  We heard a never-ending thank you from her.  Told us that we made her very happy on her birthday.  I am so happy that she enjoyed her day.  She laughed a lot, dance and sing.  It remember my late mother seeing her.  Only if my mom stayed longer we would have celebrate her 69th birthday and mother’s day as well.  Again happy birthday to my aunt, I wish you good health and pray that God will give you more birthdays to celebrate.  Keep smiling and be happy always!  xoxo

Simple Yet Memorable

Last Friday was the 70th birthday of my father.  As what he wants we had a simple celebration.  We invited our relatives and some of his closest friends.  The father does not want an extravagant celebration for the reason that he is too old for that.  The celebration is a simple dinner yet memorable to the celebrant because of the invited visitors to celebrate with us.  I must say that his closest friends made his day extra special.  I thank them for coming even if the weather is not cooperating.  The heavy rain did not stop you from coming.  Your presence is very much appreciated.  Thank you very much!!!

Another year has added to my father’s life.  I wish him good health, long live and more years to come.  I thank God for this blessings.  I thank God for always protecting my father from harm and for giving us a father like him.  He is not a perfect father but I would not ask for a better father if given the chance to choose.  To us, he is the perfect father.  He raise us well and provides what we need with the absence of my mother.  Happy birthday to my father and God bless you always!!!
