July 9 every year is the happiest day of my life. Because on that very special day of the year 1984, the only daughter and youngest among four of proud parents Mr. and Mrs. Romeo Plaza I was born. 😀
My mother told me that I was born on a rainy day of July 9 at around 4 AM. So, I always expect to have a rainy birthday. 😀
And yes, today is the 9th day of July, guess it right! It’s my birthday! 😀
2007-1984= 23. Can’t believe I’m 23 years old today and for the rest of this year.
Early this morning I woke up around 5 AM to attend a mass. My mother was the very first one to greet me. She even sang a birthday song for me while my father greeted me last Saturday as an advance one. I arrived at the church so early, I thought the mass will start at 5:30 but it started 5:45 instead. While waiting, I bought a candle and lit it. I chose the red one. While I was outside and waiting for the lady vendor to give me my change, a security guard of the church’s school ask me, “Today is your birthday right?” Sure he would guess coz I was wearing a red shirt. 😀 I smiled and thanked him. When the lady went back, I then entered the church, prayed and listen to the Gospel and all. I was surprised when I saw my high school friend. He was there too, but it’s not his birthday. He wasn’t able to attend the mass last Sunday so he did that this morning. I told him it’s my birthday today he greeted me back and I told him if it’s ok if we go home together which he didn’t decline. As we approached outside, the lady vendor greeted me a happy birthday. I was like how did she knew? I smiled back and said my thank you and asked how did she know? She told me that, choosing the red candle gave her a hint. I smiled and said my thank you again. 😀 It’s funny how people that I don’t know greeted me too. 😀
As I arrived home, my Aunt greeted me too followed by my brothers, in-laws, Dee and friends (they texted me their greetings).
Living 23 years of my life is no joke. I’ve been through for so many things. I’ve been to so many ups and downs, sorrows, sadness, and lots of critics, praises, happiness, blessings and all. I know that there are still things that I will encounter for the future. It’s funny how my friends teased me as I blew the cake and told me that I’m not 23 years old, but instead a 3 year old girl. They said, because the way I act, and act like a child still.. 😛
As this day will be over for an hour or two, I did have my wishes. “Wishes” because, there are still a lot of things that I hope God will bless me.
I always want to be happy, and I am happy right now. I am blessed with a never ending supportive family, understanding best friends, great friends, a very hyperactive dog and a love one. 😀
Aside from my family, my friends did greet me. By the way, here’s the lost of my FRIENDS who greeted me some greeted me advance (Sunday) and some through Friendster.
Thanks Guys for the greetings I really appreciate all of them! 😀
