Birthday is one of the most important events in our life because this is the day where our mother gave birth to us. And every time we celebrate our birthday, we are thankful to our parents, specially to our mother. We know how the sacrifices our mothers did just for us to live. If you're a mommy, by now I know you already understand the word "sacrifice" and "hardship" of being a mom.
WHY WE CELEBRATE OUR BIRTHDAYS?
Of course we celebrate our birthday because we want to express our thanksgiving to our Lord almighty who give us the life that we have. We share our happiness to our friends, neighbors specially to our family and love ones.
HOW DO YOU CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY?
Most of us we want our birthday to be special. Each of us have different ways in celebrating our birthdays, depending in our situation, and of course, our budget! hahaha! If you're still single and you have plenty of money, you can celebrate your birthday with bonggacious party, catering, renting a resort, and hotel with friends. But if you're a mom like me, I think for sure you will prefer a very simple but memorable birthday celebration. You, how do you celebrate your birthday?
For me, the very special celebration of our birthday is when we celebrate it together with my husband and my family. Though it is hard for us to celebrate it together it is okay as long as we're all fine and healthy.
Today is the 28th birthday of my one and only loving husband. But it so sad to celebrate his birthday without him and he celebrates his birthday without us :(. But still we Praise and thank the Lord for the another year that He added to his life.
Before, we always celebrate our birthday together, because his birthday is September 4, then my birthday is September 6, but we always celebrate it in our monthsary, which is September 5 or during his birthday. But right now it is very hard for us to celebrate our birthdays together na, but I'm still thankful to God that He always bless us with so many blessings.
Today, my zd woke-up very early, Yes! And he wanted me to wake-up too. And I noticed that he was very happy and a little bit active pa din hehe. Everyday, when he wake up in the morning, he'd always get his toy car and ride all the way or get his shoes to walk outside the house with his grandfather. But this morning is different, he hugged me and kiss me while singing a lullaby. hahahah! So it's like there is something new on him (whatever it is, it feels really nice!).
That is why I decided to wake-up also and start talking to him and telling him that today is his father's birthday! He smiled at me and said "PAPA" "PAPA"! My heart is started melting, my emotion was trigger and my tears started falling because I missed my husband and today is his birthday! But I kept it to myself because of ZD. I don't want ZD to see me sad because he started his day with a big smile.
Then I thought, "how can I greet to him on his birthday today when he has no signal, no internet, and no email?". Oh it's amazing! haha! A month voyage from china to US means 1 month without! See? That's our life. But the best thing that I can do is to offer a PRAYER for my birthday boy.
"To my loving husband Happy happy birthday! I pray that God will keep you safe always from any harm on your journey, that God will keep you healthy and also I pray that you can do all your tasks well. I know your situation there is not easy but I want you to know that I'm always here for you with your son ZD, waiting for you and loving you, my love. Thank you for all the sacrifices, your hardwork, and all the sleepless nights you did to sustain your family here in Philippines. For me, you're the best husband ever, that I will keep in my heart forever. I love you so much and I miss you a lot. God bless!
