Today, 58 years ago you were born. It is unfortunate that you only got to celebrate 49 birthdays, but don’t worry Pop. We still celebrate your birthday every year since you left us, though in different ways.
Today we held a family gathering, monthly arisan for both Mbahti’s and Mbahkung’s big family. It was nice to see everyone. I haven’t seen a lot of them in years. We ate pudding in replacement of a birthday cake, Tante Luky made it. I played around with Kaia, Mas Reno’s&Farra’s daughter. You would love her, she is so adorable.
Today I think of you. I wonder what you would have looked like.
Today I’m grateful that you are remembered by everyone with such love. I don’t think I have ever met anyone as loved as you are, and that’s why I am so very proud to call you my Papa.
Tonight I will be on my knees, praying for you. Happy birthday Papa, I believe you are in a much better place looking after us 🙂
