Birthday Reflections

Birthday Reflections

It’s my birthday today! And it’s my biggest “celebration” yet. We’re not really big on birthdays, you see. In previous years, we just have dinner, just our little family of three; sometimes, we are joined by a handful of friends. It was always small, cozy, intimate, nothing grand.

This time, our family’s spending it in sunny Cebu. 😎 This is my first time to be out of town for my birthday. Though technically, it’s not a vacation coz we’re here for a conference. But any break from my usual routine is very much welcome. 🙂 At the least, I don’t have to worry about making up the bed. 😛

This was at the breakfast buffet. My friends’ told the servers that it was my birthday, so I got subjected to the customary “flash mob” singing. Quite embarrassing really. ^_^;;

It was actually the little boy who enjoyed himself more while the staff were singing. 😛

While in Cebu, we met up with Terci’s relatives who are now based here. Also met up with one of my longest friends from high school, Rita. We never really lost touch thanks to technology, but it’s still different and much much better to catch up in person. 🙂

On the whole, it was a wonderful day. And a better year even. There are still the little things I am wishing for, and the bigger things I AM PRAYING FOR. But it’s been a better year thus far (compared to 2016 which was very tiring and discouraging! @_@). I feel that I have got a renewed sense of Faith and purpose and gratitude. I hope things continue feeling being this way for a very long time.

    1. Had fun–and rest–in Cebu. I didn’t even have to leave the hotel coz of my bad foot. But people came over. And it was just so nice reconnecting with old friends and family.
      Thanks for the greet, Edel! 🙂
