141. Yearly Birthday Post

I would describe this year's birthday celebration a surprise-filled-I-feel-so-special birthday. It's one-of-a-kind. I do believe that as years pile up in our lives, so as the people who surround us. There might be relationships that have been gone with the wind as years went by, but God have replaced and will surely replace those with who knows, even more genuine ones. I, thank you! Haha feeling answering a Miss Universe question.

My birthday magnified the blessings I have! Not just in the form of material things but through the people I’m surrounded with! I feel the love and the ‘being special’ with all the surprises I got. More than the tangible birthday presents are the thoughts and greetings from my family, from my sweet-and-understanding (yup these two adjectives must  really go together all the time haha) boyfriend, relatives, friends, colleagues, churchmates, co-ministers, former officemates, teachers, online pals, and from the different people in Facebook (hahaha! Thank internet for notifications!!) and etc that enveloped me all throughout the day. It was indeed my birthday! I can’t contain in this post the exuding overflowing thankfulness my heart holds.

Of course I give back the glory and the greatest thanks to God for first, creating me in His image and likeness and for never failing to forget to make my birthdays colorful, my birth months actually. Each year He makes it sure that my nativity was not an accident at all – that right at the point of conception, it was meant to happen that I be born and show the world how beautiful a person can be. Ok joke, birthday ko naman. Hahahaha! But despite that I am still not sure on the main purpose of my life yet (this is a little sad), it was so thrilling to know that I’ve helped people in little ways or not, that I’ve made people laugh and happy and even joyful for some, that I’ve inspired a few, that I have touched lives even in the simplest ways! These are all blessings absorbed within and the depths of my soul! Just thankful!! Super thankful!!

I spent my birthday at the office and it so happened that I was on training. I think I must be thankful as well for having myself a training room that the surprises occurred! Galing! Haha!

I am posting pictures for my sentimentality's sake!!!!

These are my latest trainees. We're a lovely group of training people Haha! Girl power! The first surprise at work came from them! But sorry girls, I really appreciate you but aminin natin mas nasurprise ko kayo?? HAHAHA! Thank you! You girls are so sweet!!!
This is my Methods family. My everyday crack. My according to them "bulliness absorber". My lauging stock. Ok stop, this sounds like I'm so mean. Through thick and thin, from modules to minibases, trainings and testings, I'm always thankful I have you as my team!!!! You got me with your little skit!!! Best effort! Hahaha! Love you guys!!
And these are the really thoughtful and handsome boys of Batch 7! My first set of full-blast trainees! Tignan niyo o ang laki-laki niyo na! Hahaha labo ko lang. Despite all the pambobola, these guys never fail to make me feel special.
