Pinas In a While..


General, Philippines / Friday, May 20th, 2011

Back to posting! It just feels weird for me not to update this blog even for just a couple of days. In any case, I’m not abandoning the blog. I’m simply on a ‘vacation’. How I wish this is one of those leisurely vacations, where I could just count
coins, eat a lot, have a massage and just walk about a new and exciting place.

My father is sick and I simply cannot stay and wait for news. So my husband and I have decided I’ll fly home and stay in the Philippines for a few weeks at least to help my mom and also I’d like to be given the chance to take care of my father. I know its a tough task but I could only remember how he has sacrificed a lot for us and at the very least I want to show my endless gratitude by being there when he is in pain.

I think everyone goes through something as painful as seeing a parent sick and almost coming to an end. I don’t want life to end for anyone but who am I to say life cannot end. In the end, we have to accept things. I can only wish that he won’t suffer too much pain because seeing it just breaks me. It’s also tough seeing my mom deal with it so I have to be here at least to lend some support. There’s still a tough road ahead, so please pray for my dad and also for my mom.

I hate being melancholic when I post something, but this is exactly how I feel right now. I’m sad, but grateful too because now I realize that really there are people who are there to support us.

Being with your family right now is the most important thing, to support each other and draw strength from one another.
