Remembering Mom

November 12, 2011

Every November 1st, Filipino Families flock out to their Family Graves to remember their loved ones and reunite with the whole family in observance of the All Saint's Day. Every Year, I always go to my Grandfather's Grave but this year is a different story.

My Mother died earlier this January 2011. It was a very sad moment for her to leave but in a way it was quite a relief for me as well because I realized that to ask the Lord for more and more years for her to live is very selfish of me because that will mean more years of agony for her through dialysis and all the hurt that her kidney failure is giving her. But of course, I grew close to my mom so I miss her so much! But the fact that she is now with the Lord, free from all sickness and hurt, it does relieve my heart in a way.

I Love you Mommy! I hope you are proud of me! I'll make sure you are and you will be.

I would like to invite everyone to visit my Travel Blog featuring my Guimaras Island Getaway. Just visit
