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.

Andrei’s 5th Birthday

Indeed, time flies very fast.  My nephew turns five years old.  We had the simple celebration at their school with his classmates.  He is so happy sharing the foods and the cake with his classmates.  He knew that it is his special day because he keeps on saying that it is his birthday.  Like the usual, his parents take a day off from work to spend time with him on his special day.  We also have simple dinner feast at home with some invited friends and co-worker of his father.  We decided not to have children’s party because of the tight budget.  We just bought two cakes for him.  One of his classmates and teachers to share and the other one is at home.

The celebration was nice.  All the invited individual was able to come to celebrate with us.  And as, usual, yours truly and my older brother were hired as cooks.  Even though there is no children’s party my nephew’s day was still complete because of the cake and he blew a candle.  To him, it will never be the happy birthday without the cake.haha!  Well, kids are kids.  A cake is the center of the attraction during birthday celebrations.  I thank everyone for coming and wishing the nephew a very happy birthday.  My wish to the nephew is that he will have good health, be a good boy, do well at school, be God- fearing person, and hope that he will pass the entrance examination at the school where his older brother is studying.  I wish him good luck.  God bless Andrei, we all love you very much!

January…my birth month

This month is my birth month.  I will turn one year older this month.  I am happy and thankful for another year of my life Lord.  Thank you for the gift of life and family.  There is nothing more I could ask for having a loving and supportive family.  I have wished for m birthday.  I wish of a good health, more blessings, and hopefully a love life this year.  It is my greatest dream to walk down the aisle with the man who loves me and I love.  I hope and pray to meet the man who is God’s gift to me.

Anyways, I do not have bigger plans on my special day.  I am not used to having the extra special celebration since I am young.  I will just to go the church, thank God for everything and for my life and then will have simple dinner at home with the family.  Hopefully, my two bothers could come and celebrate with me.  I am not expecting them to come because they are so busy with work and business.  But, if they could come, I will be the happiest person in the world and my birthday would be very special and treasured because we are complete.  Lastly, I pray that all my wishes will be answered by God.

Entertained by magician and clowns

Last November 12, 2017, we celebrated the 4th birthday of my son.  It is a bit extravagant because they were not able to celebrate their son’s 3rd birthday because he was confined in the hospital.  The nephew’s 4th birthday is also a thanksgiving for his good health for this year.  Because the birthday boy loves to swim, they decided to have a pool party.  And of course, the kids love the idea and so excited.  It was a two-hour travel from our city, but it is worth it because the kids really wanted to swim.

What makes the pool party enjoyable is that the kids, as well as the adults, were entertained by magicians and clowns.  I personally have not experienced this kind of party yet, and I am excited too.  I wanted to see with my own two eyes the tricks that the magician will do.  Also, likes to see how the clowns catch the attention of the kids to go out from the water and see their performance.  It was a nice party I must say.  I can get an idea how to designs balloons, and other decorations.  It was a fun party and I thank my brother and sister in law for inviting us.  Our long travel was indeed worth it.

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.
