It’s 9:30 in the morning here in Sydney and it is my last as a 30 year old. I was 6 years old when I first flew international and yet this is my first time to celebrate my birthday outside the Philippines. We have nothing planned but I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for a birthday – ever. Last year I felt like dying and crying as my 30th drew near but this time around I am quite content with where I am, what I am and what I have accomplished in the past year. It has been an exciting 12 months. We got our permanent resident visa for Australia. My son started his first year in school. I have been to a total of 34 countries. We moved to Australia and a lot more in between. Last year was supposed to be year of bad luck (Chinese calendar thing) but despite the hardships I was more than blessed. I cannot be more grateful for the wonderful year that has passed. So thank you God (and universe and to whoever is listening and making my dreams come true) – thank you for my husband, my son, my new house and all these new experiences in this beautiful country. Thank you for my sister, nephew, cousins, friends and all the awesome people in my life (and for getting rid of the people who do not deserve to be a part of it). Thank you for the good vibes, happy thoughts and countless blessings You have showered upon my family. I will forever be thankful. But I know this year will be even greater – I will own it and claim it. Cheers to 31!
June 19, 2011. Today is one of those special days – a day when our family celebrates father’s day as well as my husband’s 30th birthday. So there is really no better day suited for showing him how much we love and appreciate him.
So to my dearest other half,
Thank you for all the love and support you have been giving us. You are truly one of a kind and I hope you know how lucky we are to have you in our lives. There is never a day when your laugh would not brighten up our home. You take care of us and show us that your family is the most important thing (next to the computer and cameras of course but we understand that :P). You are our rock and we know that each and everyday you try to show us how much you love us and how important we are in your life. You have been a blessing in my life. You are a wonderful husband and father no matter how much I joke about your fathering “i’ll-take-care-of-you-son-you-use-your-ipad-son-while-I-use-mine” skill 🙂 Life is truly better with you around. Thank you for your patience, understanding, affection and infinite love. We hope you know how much you are loved in return. Happy happy birthday and happy father’s day 🙂
The wife and son 🙂
