I am such a permanent prank on April Fools. I was born on April 1. Don't worry about me, I'm ok with the date of my birthday. If I would be granted to choose my birthday, I wouldn't hesitate to keep April 1. It's a happy day. The world is busy making prank on each other. What's more fun than practical jokes!
Here in Ph, my birthday usually falls on a holiday. It would either be a day in a Lent or sometimes it would fall on Easter Day. This year it was the day after Easter.
It was my first time not to spend my birthday with husband (since I got married ). I guess, my daughters were so aware of this fact, they took ownership of making me happy on my birthday this year. Not that they hadn't in the past, only this time, they were on their own ( piggybank stashed, haha ) w/o the dad financing.
One of the little highlights of my day was they surprised me with a birthday cake.
Having cake on my birthday? Oh man I tell ya, it's big for me! Already! I couldn't remember the last time I had a birthday cake with candles to blow for a wish.. and I have been bithday-ing for two scores + some years now. Do the math, will ya?
This year, I was also with the same friends on my birthday. Just at home with random snacks, and you know what was the prank of the day? .. aside from it was a bad hair day for me, haha..
I had accidentally deleted all photos my friend took of my birthday, surprised cake moments included, haha. Also we found out, the camera was memory cardless, haha.
So this one ( photo ) was actually not candid anymore but a retake, haha.
Although I missed husband + bday getaways, it was a happy birthday. I was with my daughters as always and close friends. Those who weren't there made their greetings over phone calls and ofcourse FB messages. Thankyouverymuch <3.
The next day, I celebrated again with a bestfriend over a lunch buffet. Thankyou.
The greatest gift ofcourse is the gift of life. Thank you Lord <3.
