It was Bam’s debut yesterday. Bam is my cousin (my stepfather’s nephew) who we send to school and in turn helps me in the household chores. She’s like a family to us and our home is cleaner and more organized now that she’s around. Z loves her to bits and treats her like a real Ate. I dread the day she graduates and leaves us because she has really been a big help.
So when we learned that she’s going to celebrate her 18th birthday this week we encouraged her to invite her friends. She was happy with the idea and invited her classmates over yesterday. Since I’m quite helpless when it comes to cooking our neighbor and some of her close friends helped her prepare the food.
The food is simple but what’s important is she celebrated this important milestone in her life.
Happy 18th Birthday, Bam. Keep up the good work and I hope you’ll be able to finish your studies and have a successful life ahead. Work hard and never forget to dream and you’ll surely get what you wish for. Life is hard but don’t ever give up.
