Just want to make a quick post today before I'll bury myself with work.
Early this morning, I was surprised to be awaken by my son's soft voice in my ear whispering, "Mommy, mommy, today's your birthday, right?"
"Is it?", me asking in my still-groggy state. I was so sleepy I couldn't care much about what he has just said or gonna do.
"Yes, and I have something for you." He went away and I was off to dreamy land again. Or so I thought.
I felt something soft and cool brushing my nose. I tried to ignore it and forcefully closed my eyes, trying to shut myself off the world. But it won't just go away!
So i opened my eyes. Do you know what I see? My son, with a bunch of alugbati leaves in his hands. "Flowers for you", he said. "Mama (his grandma) said it's your birthday today. Can't we go to the sea afterwards? You shouldn't go to work because you're having your birthday."
My heart jumped with joy I hugged him tight and kissed him. I was so surprised, so proud, to say the least.
So sweet of him. And a five-year-old at that! I wonder what's in store for me with my equally-sweet-and-thoughtful two-and-a-half-year-old Yra.
I feel so blessed I have them in my life. They are so precious, my little angels.
By the way, it isn't my birthday yet. I'll be celebrating my birthday next week, October 8th. But gifts are already welcome heheh..
And for those who don't know, alugbati is not a flower, and never will morph into one. My son's expression in his face told me that it is, though :)
