Joy because three important men in my life was born this month. Sorrow because one of them is no longer with us anymore. Anyway, I just want to dedicate this post to them. Just want to let them know who they are to me.
Let me begin with the youngest Ethan who has birthday on the fourth of October. He said that he wanted to be a chef when he grows up.
He is the son of my second daughter Michelle and her husband Ariel. His mother has psoriasis, but she is not ashamed of it, but works for the cause to help those that are suffering like her because of this skin disease.
Anyway, when Ethan was born, I was not really sure how I can be close to this sweet boy when he lives thousand miles away from me and we can only see each other once in a while. But Ethan really touches my heart. In the beginning, he had problem to say the word " lola" to me. It means grandma in English. He then begun to call me wowa for lola. Sweetest word I ever heard from him. And now, I just want to hear him calling me wowa. And although we seldom see each other he is very close to me. Everytime I'm on vacation in the Philippines, he just wanted to be on my side. He really is very dear to me and I know he feels that I really care for him when we are together.
Anyway here is Ethan together with his cousins, which he loves to be together with. These are all my grandchildren for now. Love them all!
So Ethan, I just want to greet you happy, happy birthday. I wish I could be there to celebrate with you. I love you and I wish and pray that you will grow up wise and strong and be protected by God in every area of your life. I love you very much.
Then, the next birthday celebrant is my prince. The love of my life who turned 50 on the second day of this month.
You came into my life like the heat of the sun
You warmed my body and soul
You brighten my days
You made me alive again
You made me flourished
You put a smile on my face, made me feel young again
You made my heart beat faster and stomach to tingle
Your love reaches to the inner core of my heart
You touches my soul with your thoughtfulness
You make me feel beautiful, safe, loved, and valued
Thanks for everything you had done for me.
I love you very much and wishing you many more birthdays to come together with me.
And to my father who was born this month too, but no longer with us. I just want to say that I really miss you and I wish that you are still here with us so that you can hear our greetings on your birthday. I wish that you had been here during our life's ups and downs. How I wish too that me and grandchildren can give you a hug especially on your birthday. But anyway, we are sending our kisses to you there in heaven.
