Actress and entrepreneur Dimples Romana feels blessed to have well-meaning friends who never fail to show their love for her.
Romana was overjoyed when celebrity friends Angel Locsin and Bea Alonzo threw a party for her recently, as can be seen in her Instagram post yesterday, June 9, where she showed several photos.
“To say that my life is filled with so much LOVE, that my family is blessed to have the BEST PEOPLE around us would be an understatement,” she said in her caption.
She recalled that she could not figure out what she was seeing when she went to the party, more so because she did not have her contact lens.
“What I thought to be a brand shoot turned out to be one of the most beautiful surprises ever to happen in my life. Thanks to the whole team, with the special kunchabahan of my most treasured girls @therealangellocsin @beaalonzo @whengcorpuz @alan_m_real and of course @papaboyetonline,” she said.
As a friend, Romana said she’s very simple who “would’ve cherished even just a simple phone call.”
“A text would do it for me. I’m not one who would ask for more, nor would I want anything beyond anyone would so willingly extend to me. I was never the one to ask for anything special,” she said. “A genuine friendship that I can rely on in times of loneliness and defeat would be more than enough for me.”
But she’s lucky that “heavens decided to GIVE me more than what I deserve. Real friendships. The kind I can come HOME to, friends who take the time to be with me and my family to honor our milestones.”
“I mean, how many of us can really say that about our lives, right? I LIVE for LOVE that goes beyond what is expected. I CRAVE relationships that withstand the test of time,” she said.
She felt that with her friends’ gesture, thank you’s “never suffice to express just how grateful I feel.”
To her, a great family “isn’t made up of perfect wives, husbands, not of perfect parents, what makes a GREAT FAMILY is having people like our friends and families who LOVE us beyond our imperfections, celebrate us and our many quirks. Those who lift us up and make our light shine even brighter.”
Calling her friends “the biggest stars in the universe not just because they are famous and respected in what they do,” she feels that they are God’s gift as “they know how to share their light to people like me who need a little bit more push in finding my own brightness each and every time.”
“So cheers to those of you like my dearest [Angel Locsin and Bea Alonzo] who continue to make others shine brightly by sharing their own light. Love you all beyond words. Elio is well LOVED,” she said.
Romana is about to give birth to her third child, Elio, in less than five weeks. /ra
