Since May 11-Monday, my classmates already made a countdown to the "DaY"..
Everyday they would shower these words unto my face, "HappY BirThday!, (touched ako tuloy..)
wonder why did they do that? (Birthday ko bah araw2?)hehe.. Anyways, they reminded me that im growing old.
On the same day,19 years ago-- May 16, 1990 at 10:29 am, my mother had an early present. My existence has made a difference to their lives(to my family..=] ). I have walked a life with crooked roads; full of struggles, hardships, griefs, and sorrows (who doesn't? eh?) but above all I feel blessed to catch a glimpse of heaven because of my family and friends who always stick around through thick and thin..
Before I close the day, lemme share with you an update of my happenstance as of today:

There wasn't a grand party, no lights, no ball gowns, nor a romeo who came.. = ( (like the love story song.. )
But, today I feel loved. My Friends and my family made my day special!! a total emotion-whirlwind, it knocks me off my feet...with mixed emotions that I couldn't fathom but I feel it.. I feel very human.. very ectstatic, i cried, i was overwhelmed and touched. It's too bad to end the day so soon, but i collected the exquisite moments and keep it in my heart.. *Thank you guys for sharing it with me*..
This place is a universe of silence.. lots of surprises that God brought this day and i’m so thankful for it..
Im officially 19, another turn of life... when im still younger I used to think that persons above 18 are fully grown woman.. but when i look myself on a mirror, Im still the joram, quoted by froilan " You're not growing older but getting better".. It's sweet to hear it from a dear friend of mine..
