As a member of a large family and having grown up in an environment that always upheld strong values within, I was never really surprised why overtime there was an occasion at home, people just started pouring in to share in the joys and fun we always had. It was always expected that relatives and even close family friends were present during these wonderful events. There were Christmas holidays and birthdays, just to mention a few of these treasured moments.
As easy as it seems, these gatherings were quite difficult to organize in reality. There are preparations to make and close coordination that need to be established among everybody, most especially if it involves the nature of surprise. Just recently, we had thrown a big party for our beloved matriarch who just turned seventy years. It was really a very heart-warming sight to see the obvious expression on her face when she got to open presents coming from everyone. These are moments that could never be replaced and will be kept in our memories for lifetimes to come. All our efforts have really paid off after having to witness what she had truly felt. It is always something when we make sure to provide great gifts mom will love. I and my sisters know that this is very much true.
