Today is my daughter’s 30th birthday! She told me early this morning that at the strike 12am, the baby kicked in her womb. I told her “maybe, that’s Nate’s way of telling you, Happy birthday mommy!” Celebrating birthdays of your kids has that special meaning because you were part of that very special event when they came into this world. And I remember writing in her baby book when she was born, “Blessed Lorenzo Ruiz”. Back then, he was just beatified by Blessed JP II a year before. Isn’t she lucky celebrating a birthday coinciding with a feast day of a saint? And San Lorenzo Ruiz is also very special because he is our first Filipino saint.
This is her baby picture, and the baby will soon be a certified mommy too. How time flies but the years in-between are certainly the best. Another journey is about to begin. Thank You Lord for the bountiful blessings!
