My First Daughter's Birthday
My first daughter was born on January 2, 2000. I will never forget the day she was born; because she is my first child (I guess any mom would feel the same way on me because I am, too). She is celebrating her ten years. I can’t believe she’s growing up so fast. She is my little angel. Next school year, she will be in fifth grade. I remember her happy, smiling face :). I love her so much.
I remember when I took her in Boracay beach (in the Philippines) last August of 2007, she was so happy to be with me. It was her first experience to ride an airplane and to travel a little far from Manila. She used to go to some provinces in Luzon.
I used to take her many times at work and when I had travels for official business. She enjoyed traveling with me so much. She’s more of a mommy’s girl and she is really sweet like me. I guess she resembles most of my personality.
I hope she can be with me this year in Bangkok to meet her baby sister. My sweetheart told me if I wanted my daughter or my mom to come for a visit this summer vacation on May. I said, I would definitely love to see them. I miss and love them both.
If only I could take her with me here in Bangkok so she could live here. The problem is, the education system here is not good and yet so expensive. I am only concern about her studies as I would like her to learn English very well. If she’s going to study here, she’ll be required to study Thai language.
We are living here in Bangkok, for the mean time but not for good. It is because my sweetheart’s work is here and we have to stay here. The least that we can do is just invite her to visit us during summer vacation so we could be together somehow.
I called her up today to greet her a happy birthday and just to hear her sweet, lovely voice would be enough to make me happy. To know that she’s happy, safe and healthy. My sweetheart and I bought her a Christmas and birthday present last December. She already has got them a week after I sent them via EMS courier. We are happy to know she liked our gifts for her. I’ve been praying for her everyday.
I promised to call her again, next month. I am so grateful that she’s in good hands living with my paternal aunt and grandmother. I would like her to grow up responsible, independent, loving, God fearing, obedient and patient. She may not be the most intelligent student in class, it doesn’t matter. I know she’s an average like me. I would love her to learn good and positive values, especially to have more of spiritual values. As I don’t want her to repeat the same mistakes I had in the past. I love her so much.
Happy Birthday, Nikx!!! Mommy loves and misses you very much.
