(Seriously, I can’t think of a title for this blogpost, so that’s what I can best think of right now.)
Wala na sa kalendaryo best describes my age. I won’t deny, it’s part of life.
But anyways, I celebrated the whole day long. As per tradition, on the eve of our birthdays, my husband and I waited for 12 midnight for the birthday salubong. Then upon waking up the next morning, I offered a rosary and did some meditation (my husband and I practice Transcendental Meditation, albeit I practice not so often anymore). I prayed for friends who celebrated the same birthdate as mine, and celebrants for the whole month of September. September is special to me since it is also the birth month of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
My mom and sister brought us breakfast in our condo–PAKAPLOG! Pandesal, kape, itlog, FTW. And some banoons for little girl.
Then my mom and sister gifted me with a body scrub, so that was one of the agendas in the morning.
Then, just brought home some Binalot for lunch–just in time for the noontime show (#alamnathis). =)
One of my voice students had a performance the following day, so I had to coach her (yes, work on my birthday!). Then I was off to hear Mass before my birthday family dinner.
And lastly, dessert! Which was also the birthday cake. THE birthday cake of all birthday cakes.
Need I say more? =)
To everyone who greeted me through text message, Facebook message, through the photo my husband posted on his Facebook, through email, a huge THANKS for remembering. Thank you for the kindness you’ve shown me and my family, for the friendship, the gifts, the thoughtfulness.
And as a treat for my blog readers, here’s what I have posted a day before my birthday. Let’s march in the light of God!
