His 69th Birthday

My father celebrates his 69th birthday five days ago. This is a bit late but I want to share still the little celebration we had during the 69th birthday of my father. The plan of the sister to go out have dinner outside was not push through because the brother does not like the idea. To him, going outside with kids is tiring and trouble.LOL! Trouble because the kids would surely running here and there. We will not be able to concentrate. And the brother has a point. We can do it when the little ones grow a bit older, the right age to enjoy with us and have fun.

The celebration is very simple. The father invited his close friend only because it is a family celebration. The father does not want an extravagant one either. His only wish is that we are complete and his good health. His wish did come true because my two brothers who lives far from us arrives and celebrate with us. In fact they are the one buying the foods for the father’s birthday and cooked his favorite foods. Also, the birthday cake for the kids. The father was the happiest man in the world during his special day. We had lots of fun, laughter, singing and savoring the foods on the table. Thanks to my brothers and SIL for the sponsorship/treat. Again, Happy Birthday father and I wish you good health, long life and happiness.

Hope he will get better soon

My father is not feeling so well. His arthritis is giving him so much pain now. His wrist is swelling, knee, ankle and shoulder is in pain. He can’t move the way he wants because his is in pain. He can’t walk straight and he hates it. My father is losing his patience I must say. We went to the doctor already and started taking the prescribed medicines. He even told me that he wants to cut-off his wrist. I felt so sorry for my father. I can’t blamed him is he wants he cut-off his wrist because he is in pain for almost a month now.

My father is taking five kinds of medicines for his uric acid, creatinine, lungs, kidney and pain reliever. I really hope that after a month it will have good results so that my father will be free from all the pain he is feeling now. If only I could take some of the pain. When the CT Stonogram is done, the doctor will give another medicines and hopefully the father will get better and better. He doesn’t want his condition now. I just comforted him saying that he is still blessed and lucky because he is not in the hospital, he is not on wheel chair and he is not in the ICU. I do hope that what I am saying is enough reason not to lose hope.

Two days ago, we celebrated the 68th birthday of my father. It was a memorable birthday of my father. It is memorable because the family is complete. It is his first birthday that we have invited some of his friends and his first birthday that we really spent and money. I did not tell him everything about the plan. He keeps on asking me if my two brothers will come on his birthday. I just told him I don’t know, but in reality, I have contacted my two brothers. We secretly plan on what are we going to do on his birthday and on how are we going to surprise him.

The plan succeeded and we are so happy that the father is happy. Some of the invited visitors came including his best friends. Also, his grandchildren are kept on greeting him. The celebration was simple but memorable. We cooked his favorite dishes, the fruit salad that he likes and the cake to make the birthday celebration complete, according to the nephews and nieces. I thank God for the 68th years of my father’s life. I wish him good health, long life, happy life, free of illness and have many more birthdays to come. We love you very much Papa even though we are not very vocal about it. Please see and feel how we love you dearly. Happy Birthday and may God bless you always!

It took me some time to find the nice razor

Every time my father needs to buy something, I am the one who buy it for him like t-shirt, pants, shorts, undergarments, soap, and the likes. I must say I know what my father sizes, likes, and he wants. I am like his personal secretary. One incident that I cannot forget was when I bought razor for him. It took me some time to find a good one and he doesn’t like it. Said, that the one I bought is not a good quality. If I have known the edwin jagger razors back then, I would have buy a good quality of razor. Well, it was my first time so it is fine. But the next time I will buy razor for my father, I know now what to buy. The kind that my father would surely like.

His 67th

The sister, brothers and I are talking of what we are going to prepare on his special day. I told the sister that we will be buying two cakes for him, one from us and one from his grandchildren. The cake also will complete the birthday celebration. No cake, no birthday, according to the kids. My father is so easy to please; a simple dinner at the house would mean so much to him. He has invited two of his friend, the closest one.

On his 67th years, I thank God for giving him another year to be with us. The father is very sick last year. I wish that his condition will get better and he will not be so sickly anymore. Although, we fought sometimes, I always pray for his health. The photo above is the celebrant with the two cute cakes that the sister and I bought for him and the foods that we are going to eat. It is not a best photo I must say because he doesn’t himself posing with the cakes. Well, he said he is too old for this. Lol Again, happy 67th birthday father, we love you always!
