Oooopppssss... I'm 50 !

January 14, 2015 ~ Hello everyone. Today is my "special day" and I don't know if I should rejoice about it or not. I feel happy coz I had reached this stage so far but I'm also sad to realize I'm getting old . Oh nooooooo .....

Raphael : Hey Grandma don't be sad ... you look great at 50 and you're super cool ! Ok, let me check with bigger bro if he agrees to that ! Rhendolf, isn't grandma super cool ? Look at her !

Rhendolf : Only thing I could say is .. our  Lola Wella is super fun and she looks great aside from being a grandma. When I grow up, wanna be a party animal like her too.! It keeps her young at heart and in looks . Cool .. tee hee !

So nice of my grand children to greet me on my birthday. Muaaahhh to you little ones and to all my friends and loved ones all over the place. You all made my day so special.

Eventhough today is  a proof that I'm getting older by a year again and oobviously,  I cannot hide the fact anymore .. waaahhhhhhh !
But, listen to this...everyone gets old right ? Good thing is, being 50 means a lot and an advantage as compared to being in the 20's. Why ? Now I can say I'd been here , there,  everywhere and I had learned so much lessons in life through the years. I had matured well in many aspects except for my looks, ok , maybe a bit  LOL! Daughter says I look half my age. Ohh yesssss ! Frankly speaking, I don't feel and look old though. Do I ? Tell me the truth please ... but do it slowly ok ? I don't wanna  pass out on hearing the truth from you ... LOL!

Now let's go back to my blog and read some history about my birthday month.  January is the start of the year and is the first month of the year in the  Julian and Gregorian calendars and one of seven months with the lenght of 31 days. January ( in Latin Ianuarius ) is named after Janus the God of beginnings and transitions; the name has its beginning in Roman mythology coming from the Latin word for door ( janua ) since January is the door to the  year. A door, hmmmm... ok, let me do knock knock... who's there ? Garnet !

 Garnet who ?

" The Red Angel "

 Garnet  is the birthstone of January.

Garnet is mined in a rainbow of colors. From the fiery orange of Mandarin Garnet to the rich green of Tsavorite Garnet and to the most widely recognized color of Pyrope Garnet. This stone in particular is considered a great gift to symbolize friendship and trust..
