Today would’ve been your 66th birthday, Mommy. It would’ve been nice to talk to you about everything like we always do, but it’s just how things are now. An unexpected (cheesy!) song suddenly popped into my head while I fondly reminisced memories of you this afternoon, like magic.
I always thought you were the best
I guess I always will
I always thought that we were blessed
And I feel that way still
Sometimes we took the hard road
But we always saw it through
It’s not even one of the songs you’d ever hear me (or daddy) play on the guitar. But there it is.
Sa aking pangga, August 13 na naman! Five years ago tayo kinasal, saktong fifth year anniv natin nun. Wow! 10 years na lahat yun. Sure naman ako na mas madami kang sasabihin, saka lagi mong sinasabi, “more than words”, di dapat salita lang, so titipirin ko na lang. Hehehe. =)
I write this with just a few minutes to go before 2016 officially ends for me, my family, and my little world. It was one hell of a year.
My mother died in February and it has left a huge hole in my heart that I know will take more than this lifetime to get over. I always imagined how hard it could be to lose someone in your immediate family, but to lose the one closest to your heart—it was a heartbreaking first lesson in the tragedy that is death in the family.
