Rambling On

Going Home!

Only for a vacation again, but yes I am excited. The last time I went back home to the Philippines {May 2011} I didn’t really have a good time. In fact, it was one of the most painful episodes of my life. It was so hard to have an ailing parent, but I guess you have to look beyond sleepless nights, countless adult diapers, medical check-ups, hospital stays etc etc. What spurred me on was knowing that my dad deserves all the care that any of us can give. He loved us and cared for us so much when he was still physically able so its just fitting we return similar sacrifices for him. But if there’s anything I realized after that brief episode, its that we are all going that way. That I have to prepare myself to be in that stage…

But anyway, enough of melancholic thoughts. I’m quite happy coz my daughter and I would be going home in October for about two weeks! Yay! And this time its really a vacation, and of course, we’d like to be with Mum during All Soul’s Day. We’re having a mass for Dad and of course we’ll be visiting him. So there. I’m excited so I’m posting about it. Lol! Till later.

And oh, just wanna share this quote I found:

People who don’t cherish their elderly have forgotten whence they came and whither they go. ~Ramsey Clark
