Make The Most of It

Today is my 42nd birthday. I booked a staycation with my family at Linden Suites but five hours before checking in at the hotel I received a message from my brother-in-law saying that my father was rushed to the hospital. I had to call Linden to cancel and re-schedule my booking.

Instead of being sad, John and I brought all the food to the hospital and spend an afternoon of tawanan, kwentuhan at kainan.

Am I happy? Yes because Papa is doing better now. And yes, because not everyone gets to celebrate life til 42. I'm praying that I get to live another 42 years. 

My sisters, Ate Rose and Ate Che. Kulang isa, Liz.

My siblings, My brothers - Kuya Bob and Jubert

My cousins, este, nieces - Jel, Gaby and Bea

When I got home, a surprise Contis Mango Bravo Cake, ordered all the way from Californiam US of A, was waiting for me!
Thanks, Nora of More Than Just A Sahm! I miss you even more...
