Last January 24, 2018, I celebrated my birthday.  I do not have any plans for my birthday because I do not have extra money.  My plan was just to go to church, light a candle, give thanks to God for the gift of life and simple dinner with the family.  To me, I am too old for party or feast.  What is important is that I can attend a mass on my birthday.  I received lots of greetings from family, friends, and relatives.  Some are teasing me of when is the celebration, but sorry I do not have a feast on my special day.  I am not used to it though.  My birthday is like a normal day.

But my plans were changed because of my family.  My older brother gave me money so I could buy foods for our dinner.  He can’t come home, so he is just sending money.  My brother gave me money too, and my sister bought my birthday cake.  And the best thing is that my younger brother with his wife and son came on my special day.  I am surprised I must say (teary eyes).  I did not expect it because they live far from us and very busy with their business.  It makes me feel so special for they give time to spend with me on my birthday.  I invited two of my closest friends too.  Thank you, everyone, for making my day a memorable one.  Thanks to my family for the help and always there for me.  And, thank God for the gift of life, family, and friends.
