Because I got 19 Followers already!
I know that’s not much. But for me who started blogging since time immemorial (late 2008?), that’s already SOMETHING.
I have 19 precious people, not one I have met before, reading my blog. Or not necessarily.
And I should thank those lovelies who left some love on few of my recent posts. You have no idea how much love those meant to me.
So, why 19? When I could so well hope for 29, 68, 280 or 10,500 followers?
19 is my best number.
So you could try that number combination on any of my passwords and you might just get lucky.
On the 19th day of a certain month some 8 years back, I had my first boyfriend. But mind you, I was not in my teens then anymore. I was 21. Eew! I was old. I know, stop it already.
Okay you won’t stop. So here, have your fill.
I finished grade school. I did not have a boyfriend. That’s pretty understandable, right?
High school. No boyfriend until graduation.
College. No boyfriend.
I did not care. I finished on top of my class on all of those years anyway.
So yes, I was a total geek, nerd, whatever you call me.
Although I did not wear glasses, overalls, or had uneven teeth, braces -- all that you could imagine.
Yes, I looked like just your regular student.
I had several cute guys woo me during those times, I should say. But you see, my mom inspired me so, so much. All those were the only best gifts I could give her, aside from me being a good girl, which should be a default, right?
So a boyfriend did not come across my mind. It was just me, my mom, and my siblings. (My dad passed away when I was 6.)
Until on the 19th, 4 months after my college graduation.
The beautiful pictures started pouring in..
He was my high school friend-turned out best friend in college.
That one lovely evening, he went to our house riding his bike. At our porch, I wore the sweetest smile when I told him, “Yes, It is 'us'!”
Six years after, we got married overseas.
We celebrate that day until now. We also celebrate our civil and church wedding anniversaries. And we celebrate the day our baby was born.
But to me that day is the mother of all these precious celebrations.
So happy 19 Followers’ Day to me!
