Of course, birthdays are not complete without good friends to celebrate them with. We feel so blessed to have found our community here, who in the long run also became good friends. They have made being expats more meaningful and hectic and colorful. Hectic because there will always be something to do so that we are not bored. Meaningful because we share and have the same faith. Colorful because every now and then, we get to have gatherings that always includes Filipino merriment.
What I am trying to say is that, every birthday that comes, I see as the best. But of course, you never know what happens in your next birthday so yoou always consider the recent birthday as the best. The very fact that I am gifted with Our Creator with this life is more than enough reason to celebrate it.
