Today is April 6. It’s my birthday!
My twin sister’s of course, and also Linay’s.
I’m 26 years old now and it’s been a happy and also very hard 25th year.
I’ve been through a lot this year. A lot! What they say is true about every year life gets harder. And there are a lot more times that you wish you’ll go back to the times where your only problem is which color to use on your coloring book.
And probably, who knows, I’ll be saying on my next birthday that: Nah! 25th year is nothing compared to my 26th year.
Each year that adds on my age, also adds knowledge, wisdom, insights, revelations, discovery, happiness, sadness, joy, and of course hurt. People coming in also multiplies and also leaves.
As I look back on my 25th year, I noticed I grew faster than all my years had been. I’ve seen things so abrupt, so fast, the life is not waiting for me to grow but it pushes me to make life itself.
There were things you thought as a child only happens on movies and books. But this year, I’ve seen it was true and I’ve experienced it. Bleeding eyeliner and eyeshadow and mascaras because you cried with them are true. There are nights you cry alone and call unto God for strength and refuge. There are people who will intentionally hurt you to cover up their mistakes. There are people who you thought understood but never did. There are things you worked hard on with but seems not enough. And to some point in your life that you don’t have anyone else to believe, understand, and trust but yourself.
But I thank God of all the sand I cupped with my hands, most of them fell when I closed my palms, there are still some left. Not too may but enough to know I still got something left for me.
Looking back on my life, I came to remember a priest once preached in his homily about birthdays. More than your celebration of your coming to this world, there is much more to be celebrated for. It’s natural, people come and go in this world. But the one thing that should be celebrated more is the sacrifice of a certain person and the support of all the people who help you come into this world.
It made me realize that more than I should be celebrating my birth, I should be celebrating, appreciating, and be thankful of my parents who’d been God’s co-creator of bringing me into this world. They say when a woman gives birth to a child, half of her life is on earth, half is on her grave. Today is remembering when my parents experience the birth.
That is why on my birthday, my parents are the celebrants.
Every year that adds on me makes me appreciate my parents more. We are not a rich family. My parents started their life from scratch. But because of their love for each other and for us their children, they don’t want us to experience the “scratch” they’d been. They worked hard, really hard for us. They’d never let us experience the hardships and sacrificed their own need of each other for the love for us. They did not wait on anyone to feed us and give us our needs. They strive by themselves. They’d never let an opportunity get away when they can give something and anything for us. May it be material things and intangible things.
My parents are twice my age and definitely more than twice the pain and sufferings and sacrifices I’ve been. So I’d like to send this message to the people who’d been with me all though out my happiness and hurt. To Yanyan, Linay, Lola Lourdes, and especially Mama and Papa:
For all the times that I forgot to “Thank you,” for all the special, little things you do, for all the words that sometimes go unspoken, I need to say, I love you all…I do. I love you for the way you stop and listen, and for you kind support throughout the years, for teaching me the meaning of compassion, and sharing in my triumphs and my tears. And if at times I may have seemed ungrateful, I want to say, I truly hope you see, that nothing you have done has been forgotten, and day by day you just mean more to me.
Love, Yen Yen.
