A Surprise!

One day while I was driving on our way home, I got a call from Astrid. She’s the mom of Iya’s classmate Bella who’s also my friend and insurance agent.  She asked me if I was free for lunch on November 11, 2015 because we will be having a surprise birthday party for Carmen (our other mommy friend).  Of course I said “yes”! I love surprises! It’s just lunch and we will be having it in Astrid’s place anyways.  She said it was a secret so I shouldn’t tell Carmen.
When that day came, I said I’ll bring my car so I can go back to the office after lunch.  But Carmen resisted and said that I can leave the car and she’ll drop me off after the lunch.  I was hesitant but I can’t resist a free ride! So I jumped in with my “Dolor’s Kakanin” and was prepared to just be in the sideline.  I’m comfortable being a wall flower in parties because I’m shy (even if other people might disagree). 
I was perplexed when I saw the sign on the wall.  “It’s a Boy!” Oh wow! This party was for me! It was really a pleasant surprise.  It was well executed because I never had an inkling that this was a baby shower.  Or maybe I was relaxed knowing that these people will never lie to me! The afternoon was really my type of party, simple, intimate, and inside a house with my friends.  I was never into elaborate and big parties and this one really was a great way to celebrate the coming of our little baby boy. 
When God gave me my wish for Iya to pass the UPIS exam I was more than thankful. I am thankful that He allowed me to be close to my baby every school day.  I am thankful every time I see the tuition fee that I need to pay every semester.  I am thankful that Iya has friends who value her obsessive interest in rabbits.  But now I am also thankful for giving me a chance to be with this set of the sweetest, responsible, proactive mommy friends who would throw a party for me even if I’m not always around in PTA meetings!
