My sisters and I would have had a big thing planned for you, surprise you with your closest friends and family and a night of music and singing -- something that I'm sure you would have loved.
I wonder what it would have been like since one of your daughters, the one you share your birthday with, is pregnant now with her second child. I wonder how much more makulit you could possibly have been now at 60 considering how makulit you already were at 56.
I'll be thinking of you all day today. I wish you were still here to listen to me and give advice. I wish you were still here to be support me through the difficult times even if I had the tendency to be emotionally unavailable to you.
I miss you, but I know you're in a better place. I hope to see you there someday. I hope that when I get there, you'd be ready to welcome me with open arms.
Happy birthday Pa.
