Turning a Year Older: Algene at 22

How did I start my day? I attended the 6AM mass at St. Francis of Assisi Parish Church. The night before my special day, I promised to visit the church so I can give thanks to God for all the great things in my life. I also wanted to let Him know that I am contented with every single thing I have and that I am deeply happy with all the persons surrounding me. Of course, I also wanted to pray for a stronger and better "me" at 22.

My birthday was perfect because of my family and friends. They all made my day a memorable one. Despite their hectic schedules, they still came at my place for my simple birthday celebration. Some even stayed until 5 in the morning to party. I'm also grateful to those who made some efforts in greeting me a happy birthday. The birthday gifts I received are also highly appreciated. It was so sweet of them to get the books I love, makeup items I admire and many more!

My all-time supportive parents also made my birthday a truly special one. Without them, I am not the person that I am today. I wouldn't even exist and get a chance to see the beauty of life. My mom and dad bring out the best in me. I have a happy heart because of them. To both my parents, thank you for giving me a happy family! You guys are the best.

  32. Saya naman. Taurian ka din pala. I can see in your smile how happy and contented you are. I am so missing the way we celebrate birthday there. Here it's more of going out only and with few people I knew here, i can't have a party like yours. I wish you all the best in life.
