The month of January is one of the most anticipated parts of the year. It is a month where two of my siblings and I celebrate our birthdays. It is also month of our wedding anniversary and my parents, too.
Today, I am sharing one of our throwback pictures of my two siblings. It is really funny because my sister was seen frowning. I guess this picture was taken during the exact date of my brother’s birth date. Before, due to financial reasons, my parents will choose on when to celebrate our birthdays to minimize costs. We do not understand it before.
As we grow older we realize how much sacrifice our parents gave just to raise us. My siblings have their own families now and I can feel that raising a family is not simple. Prioritizing the important ones when your money is scarce is a big deal. Of course, as parents, you will get frustrated because you can’t give what they wanted as well. Inside their heart, they wish is to give their children’s happiness, but they can’t. If only we can see this before we would not act like this. Now I know that it is mutual feeling.
I thank God for my parents for the amazing love that they gave us. What we are now today is the result of their love. How wonderful love really is.
Kudos to all responsible Mothers and Fathers out there! And lastly, Happy birthday to my sister Sheila and brother Jeje! May all your wishes come true.
