Birthday for Love Ones

Although you are in heaven we still celebrate your birthday because we wish you are here on this special day. Yesterday it was my Lola’s birthday she would have been one hundred plus years old.

There are some people who celebrate their love ones when they have already left us. We set a prayer gather with family and friends. We light up a candle to enlighten their spirits to wish them a happy birthday. We visit their grave site and bring food and flowers to have a picnic and talk to them with our family and friends. This way even if they are not next to us we still get to spend time with each other. This is how we show how much we love and gratitude our loves ones mean to us.
