As I have wrote in my other blog. I consider my nephew and three nieces as my own. I basically take care of them since their birth except for MG who turned 9 last week because she was adopted right away by my brother. I loved them like my own and they bring me joy all the time. Just a simple Thank You can already melt my heart and they are also one of the reason why I have to visit Philippines other than that nada!
I remember growing up, my mother or father is going to butcher one chicken on our birthday and then we go to church but if we can't attend mass we are going to light a candle and say our prayers thanking the day. Now kids do have cake or lechon (roast pig)^_^
