An Open Letter to the Birthday Boy


When you entered my life 4 years ago, I never thought that my life will change dramatically. I was at that time hopeless. But then, we took each steps and we found ourselves living the life that most people will like to have. We click, and our lives were definitely not the same. Our relationship have blossomed to what we thought cannot be possible. People say it's a feat. I say it's a destiny. 

We both know our pasts and that didn't hinder our future. I've been through a lot and my relationships have its share of ups and downs. I've learned a lot from it and that made me more matured. I know that I'm older than you, but that helped us - as I share to you my experiences. We both learned from our mistakes and we never felt any pressure to compromise. We're like soul mates. We found ourselves loving each other naturally. 

A person like you is not hard to love. 

Being that kind hearted as you are, I fall. You never failed to amaze me with your relationship with your family - your siblings, your parents to your grandmother, your uncles and aunts.  I share the same culture as yours.  Our family is intact and we share the values of open communication, respect and unconditional love for one another.  

Mahal, I'm proud to have you as my partner in life. You're the best gift not only to your parents but to me and to my family.  There were countless times you extended your arms to us, especially during the time my mom got hospitalized. At your young age that time, you understood the urgency. I didn't say a word that time, but you know I was worried. You have read me very well. During the time Melissa needed some aid for schooling - you never thought twice in helping out. It's always but natural for you in helping not only me, but other people as well. Hence, you are very blessed. 

Funny that most of the time, I get to learn from your approach to circumstances. Your practicality on things are very evident.  The way you handle your finances - to your professional life. It really speaks well of how your parents brought you up. No wonder you graduated Magna Cum Laude, the highest award in your class. 

I can't remember a time where I doubted my faith in you. I trusted you my life Mahal and I don't see my self having a reproach. You are the person I chose to love for the rest of my life and I don't want anyone else.  Whether you like it or not, I'm here to stay in your life too. 

May the Lord bless you more Mahal and I hope for more future successes in your career. Continue to be motivated and I won't get tired supporting you. Another year has been added to your age, but consider that you are growing to be more mature with a lot of wisdom from your experiences.  I hope that in some ways I have influenced you to be better. Remember that your dreams are my dreams too... 

It's going to be a busy day on your birthday Mahal. However, it's my privilege for you to spend it with me. It's your day Mahal, so expect my extra patience and understanding, not that I'm expecting you to abuse the opportunity - but because you deserve it. 

My three wishes for you:

* See your Mamang soon. I know how much you miss her. Who knows, she might visit Manila soon. 
* I also wish that your cats get more healthy. They are your treasure and they are so adorable. 
*Be a professional photographer in the next few months. You have a talent and I hope you get  to hone it. 

I love you Mahal and I will never get tired of loving you.  Happy Birthday! 

Your Mahal, 

Nimmy, the Birthday Boy
