18 years came and gone

June 4, 2008

Photo Exactly shot at 18:00

Well, Eighteen years it has been! The whole day was really great! Not that fun but great because as I went to church in the morning by myself, I somewhat cried because I feel so happy. i don't know what the reason is in particular but I really thanked God for the joy I felt those times. Then as hours passed, hundreds of Text messages, several Birthday Greeting comments at friendster, I became so sad during the afternoon. Because the thing that my parents promised me that we would get this day has been, again, unreal.

I'm not a spoiled brat and I never ask for things just like many other kids. All I ask are things that i really need and can't afford by myself. So I really put my very last trust on them, not actually the very last, I am a very hopeful person, but then again, i was down. I can't do anything else but to just let it go. Nothing will happen if ever I wreck myself. So I just bought a lot of cupcakes and took pictures of it!

To everyone who greeted me, Thank you so so so much for it. Though you may be hundreds, each and every reply I gave everyone was from the bottom of my heart. I really appreciate it. I am so lucky that I am a very appreciative and grateful person because even simple thoughtfulness I've seen, it really is a source of my deep joy and happiness. Those many little joys can really do me good for a very long time, a lifetime I bet.

Happy Birthday Steven. Don't feel sad today, you area a happy person, with a positive outlook on life. Remember that your parents love you and they too are probably sad that they let you down on this special day.

Happy Birthday, Steven. 18 is a great age, and you sound like you are enjoying life the way you should. Don't be sad! The most important things in life are not things! And, it sounds like you have the most important things: great parents and family, and good friends!

Take care,
Chris
