Friends, Your Thoughtfulness Makes Me Happy!

I remember some of the following lines from a song popularized by Stevie Wonder, that run this way: "For good times and bad times/ I'll be on your side forever more/ That's what friends are for..."

Chocolate-cherry birthday cake
This is the kind of feeling I have had when I celebrated my 62nd birthday together with my wife. I was really convinced that I got a lot of friends, acquaintances and even my kins, closed and distant relatives are on the alert of expressing their simple, traditional birthday greetings. Their thoughtfulness has made me happy and felt me comfortable on how I relate my humble self to them as their friend too.

Through a modern technology like a social media, the Facebook, everyone finds it easy to relay his or her greetings. Gratefully I will never ever forget them. I have listed their names here as an expression of gratitude for their invaluable friendship.

Children's Greetings

Dondon (Greg) and Gingging (Genevieve Aura), our eldest son and 2nd daughter respectively are away from us by the time, I celebrate my birthday. For them a distance is not a hindrance in keeping a contact with me. Dondon is now residing in Mindanao, while Gingging is working in Kuwait. The day I celebrate my birthday they have contacted me through their cellphones and greeted me, a happy birthday!

What a happy feeling! Receiving a cake for your birthday and slicing it together with your co-celebrant who happens to be your wife is inexplicable.

Our cake for this year is provided by our youngest son, Gilbor Camporazo, Jr., who is a computer programming instructor in Technical Foundation Institute (TFI) here in our place. Ma. Carissa, his wife has facilitated the purchase of the said chocolate-cherry cake from Merci Bakeshop.
