Well some of you know that today is my birthday. It was kind of difficult because I had to go to school and work. And if you know anything about me at school, you know I don't really fit in and I am basically invisible to most people. So I got left alone at lunch and had a major headache in classes (as usual) and my day was just not so great. It didn't feel like my birthday at all. I wasn't even excited about it. My sister did have my mom bring cupcakes to school. We ate them at lunch break but it was still like oh cupcakes and never really cared about me or my birthday. I didn't really expect them to but for some reason, it was a little bit of a shock! So after school, I went to work (part-time nanny position, house cleaning) and watched the kids for a few hours and that was pretty cool! It was a highlight of my day from that point. So Laura (the lady I work for) said her and her husband wanted to take me to dinner. So I was okay with it. I was like its way better than staying at home doing absolutely nothing.
So my mom called me and asked me if it was something that I really wanted to do. If I wanted to spend my birthday night with them or whatever. I was like yeah..they are sweet and I enjoy their children and everything. So we got the kids ready and went to Mazatlans (a local mexican restaurant). When I walked inside, all my family was there and I was in shock. But I was so disappointed because I was like I am gonna have no birthday celebration this year and stuff and it wasn't gonna work out. But when I saw them and everything, it made my birthday. Being with my family on my birthday was really all that mattered to me. They are the people who truly care about me and will always be there for me. Yes I have great friends and they care about me too and I am grateful. I just wanted to say that sometimes, we don't see what we have until we don't have them. I thought there would be no family for my birthday and honestly, I was bummed out. But I was so happy when my family was there! It was my birthday blessing from God that He knew I needed. Sorry about all that, I just felt the need to share my heart!
