Our Mama is already 50 years old, and I was like… WHAT? NO!!!
The most beautiful human being, inside out, had her simple celebration today for her milestone. With some of our close relatives and friends, she enjoyed her big day.
“Walang namang nabago” (Nothing has changed), she joked when I asked her what’s the feeling of being “golden”. She shared a cute rectangular cake with Papa, who celebrated his birthday last March 14. (Thank you to Nanay Vancia for always being there on our birthdays. For always bringing foods and drinks.)
But I can’t help but to feel a little bit of sadness. It’s the fact that Mama is already aged. WE WANT THE OPPOSITE. We don’t want her to age. We want the “numbers” to remain stagnant. But.. what can we do? (sighs…)
BUT STILL… we are all embracing this special moment. 50 years is no joke. In those span of time, the world has been blessed with a one-of-a-kind woman. A loving mother who does nothing but give love and spread her radiance. She has the kindest heart in this entire realm. A stong mother that despite of all the problems and sufferings, continues to be stiff… like a steel which is hard to bent.
This milestone of her is just the START of many more years of happiness and greatness that a REBECCA SOBRESIDA SORIMA can offer and give.
Happy Birthday Mama! We love you soooooooooooooo much!!!!!!!
