I cannot remember the last time I shared my birthday celebration with my colleagues. Usually, I take vacation leave to spend it with my family or friends. This time, I have decided to go to work on my birthday, since I am saving the remaining 1-1/2 leave credits I have for the Christmas Holiday.
Since, I know my colleagues very well, I was not expecting anything from them. Never in my thoughts had a slightest idea. That is who we they are.
My colleagues were taken aback when I showed up earlier. Their hands were full putting up the birthday banner they diy-ed. I could not help but giggle at their faces. They were caught off guard. Anyways, I let them finish whatever they are doing.
At around 11:30am, my sister and nephew called. My nephew got me the sweetest birthday wish. And as we were talking, I was surprised to hear my colleagues singing behind me.. The cake and the gesture.
I took SNM/ENG out to lunch and PMD colleague to dinner.
Later that night, I took a walk around the neighborhood. It was so nice to just enjoy my own company.
Happy Birthday, Self.
Thank you everyone who wished me a happy birthday.
