Something Different with the World Today

Today I woke up and hoped that yesterday was just a dream. But as I stood up and looked at our house, the same lights and burning candles were there. And you were not there to remind me that I should eat my breakfast before it gets cold.

My sister told me that your grandson, who is just over one year old, went to look at you. He tapped the glass of your coffin like he always tapped your cheek to wake you up in the morning. But he seemed to be puzzled because you were not stirring. He tapped your coffin a little harder and even seached for a way to open it because you were not moving. And in his little mind he wanted to wake you up like he always does. Because he knows that when you wake up, the very first thing you will do is smile at him.

But today and yesterday is very different. Some things have changed and will never be the same.

condolence bro. natatandaan mo ba nung napag-usapan natin to minsan? i'm not sure kung kina tatang yun sa bulacan or wherelse, na isa sa mga fears ko yung mangyari yung ganito sa parents ko. I said that because my lola passed away after a coma for so many months pagkatapos nya madulas sa may banyo namin.

I distinctly remember what you said, that at some point, we will need to accept the fact that they will leave us. And I quickly replied that I will never be ready for that.

Hang in there, cry if you need to, mourn if you want to, words will never be enough pero kahit papaano it will make you go through the day.

Peace be!

Thanks Vink. Naaalala mo pala yun. Ako hindi na.

Thanks for your concern.

I really appreciate receiving messages from you and the rest.

Funny, but to be honest, ngayon ko lang talaga na aappreciate ang value ng mga kaibigan at kamag anak.

Because I really need to feel that you people are just around kahit simpleng hello lang.

Salamat. You are a true friend.

And your mama said
"when tomorrow starts without me,
please try to understand, that an Angel came and called my name,
and took me by the hand,
and said my place was ready,
in heaven far above,
and that I'd have to leave behind,
all those I dearly love."

It is comforting to think that our loved ones who left us behind is now in a much better place than us.

Your mama is more happier now, together with the angels and the Lord up there.

At tayong mga naiwan, we will still be facing all kinds of crisis in this world,
dapat lang talaga tayong maiyak :)


Hope all is well now with you and your family.

God bless,
