Mama didn’t want any fuss for her 70th birthday. But of course, we couldn’t let the event pass by just like that. It’s not everyday that people reach that kind of milestone. And it’s also a celebration of our gratitude that she is with us, and healthy at that, so we have so much to be thankful for.
Well, she actually changed her mind about not wanting a fuss because we saw how happy she was when she saw our closest relatives and her friends from work whom she hasn’t seen in a long time. So good times for her (and for us!).
On her actual natal day, since it was a weekday, I decided to stay home and let her have a simple treat. I did forego my birthday leave for her since I thought it was better to let her rest from taking care of my own kids.
And for her “grand” celebration:
Happy 70th Ma! Words cannot describe how much we love you and we thank God everyday for giving you to us.
