(This is a scheduled post, me and hubby are scheduled for an advent recollection today)
Today is Mama Alice's birthday. She's celebrating her birthday in the province where she is based together with my three unmarried siblings. She invited me and she told me that she's having a lechon (roasted pig) but I can't make it due to my scheduled recollection and besides, it's too far away. I love my mother very much. She married at the young age of 23 to my father who was turning 40. They have a wonderful marriage. But Papa died at age 69, few years after his forced retirement at 65. Since then, she doubled her efforts in order to meet the needs of her family, sending my two siblings to college and the youngest, high school. She works from Monday to Friday as a clerk, checked on the rice farm on Saturdays and sell groceries and ready to wear (RTW) goodies on Sundays. I admire her courage and strength and I'm really proud of her. Happy birthday Mom. I hope and pray for more birthdays to come, good health always and more blessings!
