How we celebrate without our parents:My sister's birthday
A grateful morning to all of you awesome people. I'm having my vitamin D now here because the sun shines so bright and I can't let it pass without enjoying this beautiful sunlight. How's your morning?
I felt lazy yesterday to write because I run some errands and got tired but it's okay as long as it is important matter. So, I'm planning to cope up today :D
What do you feel when you heard the word celebration? I bet some or most of you will answer happiness, enjoyment, excitement and many positive term related to joyful feelings.
Well, all of the above is correct because that is what a celebration mean. When you celebrate you throw a party, gather your family and friends, cook many foods, and organize a game. Other's prefer to celebrate in a simple way just the two of them in a romantic place, just their family in their house and sometimes people celebrate alone. We have our own way of celebrating special occasions in our lives.
I encourage you to read those first in able to understand this article well.
Now, I want to share to you how we celebrate my youngest sister's birthday without our parents beside us.
Last November 23, 2020 was my sister's birthday and during that time my father is stay in to his work. I thought he could go home and be with us during the special day of my sister but he didn't make it. Even if our father can't go home, I want my sister to be happy on her special day that's why I created a plan to surprise her. My sister thought we won't celebrate her birthday since I don't know how to cook spaghetti that she wanted and she knows that we don't have elders here in house so no one will going to cook for her. I know she felt sad the day before her birthday without her knowing that we prepared something for her.
Before her birthday I asked her what gift she wants and she just said that anything as long as there is black pink design. She idolize black pink that much so it gives me an idea what I will going to do on her birthday. I ordered online a terno which have a design of black pink members and the color is black pink also and it arrived before her birthday so I have a gift now for her. My father asked me what we will going to do on my sister's upcoming birthday and I told him the plan so he just send a money to me that I used in buying things.
My step-sister and I starts to budget the money, so we planned to cook spaghetti good thing she knows how to cook, fried chicken and shanghai. Also we look for bakery which offers customize cake, my friend's mother referred one so we went there and avail a cake.
I will share to you what happened to my sister's birthday.
In the morning, we greeted her first and she said thank you to us. My father also called that time and greet her then my step sister and I went to market to buy ingredients that needed. My sister's don't have any idea about the surprise that we planned. She asked if we could visit our mother in the cemetery but kids are not allowed to enter there that time so we end up postponed it and I know she felt sad because of that. I feel sorry for her I know she missed our mother so much and that is her second birthday without our mother and first birthday without our father only us, her sister.
I created a banner saying happy birthday to her so that we have a background design when we take pictures. I also made a cut-out numbers indicate how old she is. I used black and pink colored paper.
We just cooked spaghetti, shanghai and fried chicken. She wants these foods so much.
Since we're just 4 in the house we didn't cooked many foods. It is enough for us.
This is her customized cake, we chose black and pink color and I am the one who puts design and inserted those pictures of black pink. I printed their photos and bought a stick so that I will able to put it in a cake. She's very happy when she finally saw it. It's a simple cake but to her it was a very special cake. (It looks like it's the black pink's bday and not my sister XD.)
Look how big my sister's smile there. She looks so happy. Her best friends went to our house to greet her.
We also took a picture then send it to our father. He called us thru messenger and talked to the birthday celebrant.
My sister's smile can't hide the happiness that she felt that time. I don't want her to feel sad during her special day, and even we celebrated without our parents beside us I know she's happy and my mother is happy too seeing us celebrating from above. It's a simple celebration but full of love and that makes it special to her. She loves the gift that we gave to her. At the end of the day, my sister hug us and said thank you to us, she enjoyed her birthday. Even though my sister is hardheaded sometimes and maldita, I still love her because she's my sister. And I promise to our mother that I will take care of them and that includes making them happy.
