Happy Birthday, Mama!
It’s Christmas day and Madir’s 75th birthday. The last time I was present in Mama’s birthday was ten years ago. It was good to be here today with the entire family and a few relatives.
Every year her nephews, nieces and their kids, as well as her sister/bestfriend make it a point to visit her on her birthday. She would always cook for everyone. In fact, she’d start preparing and cooking a day before Christmas. She’s not big on Christmas decorations but she’ll make sure every child who visits her gets something – toys, clothes or money. I don’t know where she gets her energy but she never gets tired entertaining and making sure no one gets hungry. Lately, however, she’s been sickly so just like in the past few years, we thought it would be best to just buy everything we’ll eat today. Good plan.
May you have more years to come, Madir! We love you.
