“If you have the capability to help, do it.”
For my 21st birthday, I chose to have a children’s party with clowns for kids who are currently studying catechism in our Parish. I was content knowing that I am making others happy by being a blessing especially to these children. To let them feel the happiness of having a children’s party is such an overwhelming feeling. I cried when they sang the Happy Birthday song, because as far as I can remember, no one really ever sang for me on my birthday (mostly because it’s usually during summer!).
After seeing how they smiled that time, how they shouted for gifts, how they said “thank you po”, and how they enjoyed posing in the camera, was the best gift I have received. These were all simple actions, yet these were also the big joys I have seen. The celebration was definitely all worth it!
