My daughter just turned 17 last February 15 and we all went home to celebrate with her. It’s not everyday that I get to see my daughter since she left Dubai for college so I will jump on every opportunity I have to be with her.
We celebrated her birthday a day early in my sister-in-law’s house in Quezon City. We invited few relatives, my mom, nieces and grandchild. The celebration was simple but with family around to show their love for my daughter was more than enough to make us all happy.
She’s growing up. I hope not too fast that I will miss every childishness she has in her bones. I know next year will be another year but a more remarkable one as she celebrate her being introduced to society as a young woman. We can’t stop time and that means I can’t stop getting older.
I’m glad we went home for her birthday. Nothing replaces a family’s bonding moments especially when it’s a special occasion you’re celebrating.
My daughter is now 17; not quite old but no longer a child. Soon, she will be venturing into another chapter in her life and I and my husband wish to be with her for many, many more years so we can guide her. And we pray for the best for her.
Happy birthday our sweet princess. We love you!
