It always rains on my birthday. I remember even when I was a little kid celebrating, most of them days were raining. Not that I’m complaining, I am a rain person. This year was extra special, even though some of my friends failed to make it, because aside from the pouring rain on the day of my celebration, our place got a bit flooded. And what made it special? My friends had a great time crossing our flooded block! I was actually quite hesitant if I’ll still celebrate because of some budget constraints, a denied leave, and of course the rain. But despite of all those considerations, I pushed through with it and very glad that I did. It was such a blast!
The first of August, some time last week, was indeed a memorable one. Around 5pm, I attended my friend’s cute little kid’s first birthday over at Hungry Juan’s (where I also ordered food for my party). After that, I claimed my order then hurried back home. The rain just kept on pouring and I couldn’t help but wonder if my friends will still be able to join me for the rest of the night. But luckily they did, and I was just so thankful for their effort in coming despite the bad weather. Here are some of our wet but fun pics!

With all these great friends coming over, brave enough to weather any storm or flood, who wouldn’t want to celebrate every year? I’m just so blessed to have another year journeying with amazing people who made my life worth celebrating. And probably the rain has got to do a lot about this. You know what they say that it’s a blessing when it rains on your birthday? That’s how it is, I think. As a friend quoted, “Babahain ka din ng blessings nyan!” And with that note, let me que in James Morrison’s Please Don’t Stop The Rain.
