Yesterday, July 15, Was My Birthday











Yesterday, July 15, was my birthday. I thought all along that Facebook would notify my friends about it. But to my horror, it did not and I have to make an emergency post there to notify my friends. Alas, my other friends who do not regularly open their FB account were oblivious of it. So I have to make this emergency post to announce to all my friends and readers that yes indeed, July 15 was my birthday. The pictures above are those of my family, remnants of the few photos that survived that flash flood that inundated and destroyed most of our belongings including our precious photos and books. I thank all those who sent greetings and wishes at my Facebook wall. Special mention goes to Shiela Worthington (Shydub) and Demci Apdian Diaz (Dhemz) who sent me money via PayPal. I was shocked beyond words by their generous gesture. Thank you very much mommies. God bless you more for your thoughtfulness and generosity. Thanks to all who supported me and patronized my blogs all through these years. May the Lord bless us all and grant us all our hearts' desires.

Hi teJan,
Thanks again for the greetings. God bless you all always.

Hi Clarissa,
Actually Facebook did not issue any notification of my birthday, so it is not unnatural that most of my friends were oblivious of it. I appreciate your intentions Clang but I do not solicit cash for myself. I know how thoughtful and generous you are also but I am embarrass about it. Your intentions are well appreciated though. Thank you so much for your greetings. That means so much to me. God bless you all always.

Hi Shy,
Parehong pareho kayo ni Justine, pinapasaya ninyo ako palagi. Si Justine dahil sa sobrang pagka cute niya. Kung me pera lang ako ay lumipad na ako diyan para makita siya at mayakap, kaya lang sobrang mahiyain siya. Baka ni hindi magmano sa akin, hehehe. Ikaw naman dahil sa pagiging tutuo mo at sinsero, walang kaplastikan at palabiro din katulad din siguro ni Justine. I find you very friendly and fun loving. Sana hindi ka magbago kaibigan. Kaya pala sangkatutak ang kaibigan mo dahil sa pagiging kalog mo. Thanks again for the visit and the greetings, pang isandaan na yata yan, hehehe, joke. God bless you all always.

Again Mel, Belated Happy Birthday! So how did you spend it? I'm pretty sure you are so much thankful to the Lord for all His Blessing. May He continue to bless you more :)

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Kimmy,
I know that, kaya nga most of my friends did not know and I have to make a post at FB to inform everyone of my birthday. Kaso hindi lahat nagbubukas nang FB account nila that is why I posted it here. Thanks for your greetings and nice words. I really appreciate that. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi MinnieRunner,
That was just an ordinary day for us since I didn't have extra money in my budget after paying off one of our debts. I just bought some ice cream for the kids in the afternoon. Of course I am so thankful to God for the grace of life and other blessings that He has given me. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Rose,
I will not get mad at you because you were not aware of my birthday. It is but normal that you should spend more time with your family. I received your money from PayPal and as with Shy, Dhemz and Clarissa (Mommy Clang), I was shocked beyond belief. Thank you so very much for the unexpected bonanza. Thank you so very much for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Jellybelly,
Thanks for your greetings and wishes. Thanks also for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Bambie,
Actually FB failed to notify my friends about my birthday and I have to make an emergency post to inform my friends. Since not all my friends are active at FB, I also have to make this special post in my blog. Thanks for your greetings and wishes. God bless you all always.
