Today is a very special day. Three of my favorite people are celebrating their birthdays.
My sister Abbie turned 39. And I'm happy that she's in a good place right now. She finally found the love of her life, they bought a new house here in Manila, they opened a small business in Cebu, and the kids are doing very good in school.
My friends Harold and Sunny are celebrating their birthdays, too. Both brilliant and talented and grounded. And I wish these two more light and joy in their life.
Harold and I have been friends since college. I met Sunny through Multiply. They don't know each other until, by chance, they were in the exact same place (or event) in Chicago some years back. I can't remember now who said this, but one of them said to the other: "You are Aileen's friend, right?" It makes me smile everytime I remember this story.
I find that really amusing because it wasn't the first time my friends met each other this way. On my birthday party alone, some of my friends said to each other: "Oh, I know you from Aileen's pictures!"
I love it when my friends from different phase and time in my life meet and then become friends.
