Happy Birthday... Ate Weng

October 22... a very special day for my sister. It's her birthday and I would like to express how happy I am to be taken care of someone like her through this post.

Her name is Rowena but she is commonly known as "Weng". For me, she is Ate Weng. She is the 3rd of four siblings and I'm the youngest. I was born exactly two years and one day after her. And since we were children, she is the one closest to me. We always go to places together. I even remember her waiting for me while I was taking my college entrance exam at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines. She patiently waited for me because I don't know how to travel alone. I don't go to malls on my own, she was always with me.

When my parents died, she became the "head" of the family. She is presently even raising the six (6) children of one of my sisters. Even if she recently had her own child, she still assumes responsibility of them.

When I have problems, she is always the one who is so worried about me. She takes care of all of us in a lot of ways. She is the best sister I have and I am grateful to God for giving her to us.

I just pray that her life will be peaceful and happy forever. Happy birthday, Ate Weng! I love you...
