Before I wrap this day up, I’d like to give my warmest thank you, to every one who remembered my day. Starting from Google & Yahoo.. which seems to me that even if I try to forget (not really forget, but im trying to let it pass) my natal day, there’s this one week advance notice of my birthday on my desktop, and of course there’s my wide selection of my social media network from, instagram, twitter, tumblr, blackberry messenger and lastly facebook. Where of course my basic personal information is blasted. And I can’t absolutely deny the fact that age is coming into my years. But anyhow, all of these, made my day extra special. From a wide range of warm greetings, basically from all over the globe, to start with my previous students, who after all the long years that has gone by, you still remember me. My co-workers, my relatives and best friends back home in PH, that in spite of your hectic schedules you managed to give me a beep. To my colleagues & church mates around Norway who filled my day with so much faith, my host family who never fail to make me feel that I am a part of the family and my friends around Europe. Thank you!! Thank you, for sparing that special minute of your busy lives on me.
And of course how can I forget, the most important of them all. My parents. Yes, them! Which I think, that even if grey hair starts to grow on my head, they would still call me their baby. Thank you mama and papa. For spending time with me today. For cooking my favorite pansit guisado and biko. I love you and I miss you so much. I may be a grown up now, but I will remain as your little baby.
And lastly my boyfriend. For putting so much effort to make this day extra special though we are eight hours apart from each other. From those cutesy collages to cards and videos & a virtual movie date. (I know he put so much effort in it, because it’s not the typical him to make such cutesy stuffs.. haha!) Thank you baby! Looking forward for more birthdays and special occasions to celebrate with you. I really appreciate everything you did today!
I can never be too wordy enough to write down how grateful I am. It is indeed overwhelming to hear such warm wishes. I may not have riches to buy all that a girl wants or I may not be famous as a star, but having these heartfelt-once-a-year-event, makes me all shine. For I know, that I am loved and blessed. Loved by such wonderful souls and blessed by God to have them placed perfectly in my life. Indeed it is true, that you know everything that we are, from head to toe. For some unexplainable truth, you bring the right people in our lives. In the right place and at the right time.
As another year is added to my life, all my hearts desire and sorrows, I lift them all up to you. May you continue to guide me as I go another chapter of my life. Lord I am not but a weak soul without you. All these experiences, great or small would have not been possible without you.
Thank you for loving me, yesterday, today and forever.
For by me your days will be multiplied, and years will be added to your life.
