My 40th Birthday

Yesterday was my 40th Birthday...

They say Life Begins at 40!
Well, maybe it does... not technically though
As a personal reflection,
I believe that when they say that life begins at 40...
It just means that at this point you have already gone thru a lot things in life...
Pains, happiness, sadness, anger, frustrations, hope, faith, depression,,,,
Feeling down then feeling hopeful again, the cycle continues...
Therefore you already know what life is all about...
And so you will be able to enjoy Life more from this time!!!

The day before my birthday, my friend Gie texted me hoping I would have a blast on my birthday.
I told her I hope so too, but unfortunately I don't have the resources (money)
Then later on in the day, hubby got his money (which we thought he'll get next week)
Blessings of all blessings!

So on my birthday yesterday, hubby prepared a Feast for me!
Hahaha,,, not really a feast but it was great and he did all the marketing...
We didn't invite anyone actually, it was just "if ever someone comes",,,
My sons' girlfriends were here in the morning,
Although my eldest daughter was at work, it was her first day with Anlene...
Then early evening my officemates came
And we went to Annielyns' house where I brought some pulutan to celebrate her new house too...
We stayed until 9:30pm there...

I went home and enjoyed the rest of the night with hubby,,,

Surely, Life Begins at Forty!!!
