As always, Ruel tried his best to make my birthday extra special.
First, I thought I wouldn't get anything anymore on my birthday because he gave my birthday gift three weeks early--the Coach bag that I showed you last time. I was wrong. He still gave me another gift...a light pink Lacoste top which he gave me two days before my birthday.
On Sunday, August 25, a day before my birthday, we had a simple celebration in Bulacan with his parents. Then in the evening, we had dinner with my family Kogi Bulgogi, a Korean restaurant in Libis -- still his treat.
|Whoah! Don't I look pregnant here? I hope that's a sign!|

On the day of my birthday, we went out for ice cream and Ruel bought me a Tiramisu cake which was just super.
I had a really happy birthday. The fact that I went to school on a national holiday (which incidentally was also my birthday) for a seminar that was cancelled at the last minute without my knowledge, was not enough to dampen my spirits.
So, anyway, I am filled with gratitude for all the blessings and graces that God has bestowed on me for almost 40 years. I realized that despite all the trials I've had, I can still say that I have lived a charmed life compared to most people I know. I praise and thank God for HIS goodness and love. Most of all, I thank Him for all the people I care for and who care about me. They are, after all, my greatest blessings.
