God has been so good to us in 2021. There were struggles, but He has provided all our needs, kept us safe, and answered our prayers. I am grateful, dear Lord. You are awesome!
I have been less active during the past few days as I was trying to maximize my time spent with my parents and sister who were all homebound last Sunday. My dad came here in 1980, before I was born. He was 23 years old. He liked the weather here and the fact that there weren’t mosquitoes swarming around him. But you know, he’s old and grey so he really is excited to finally retire.
As for my mom, my sisters and I — we came here in the 90s. This has been our home since. Fae and mom weren’t as excited. They wanted to stay for as long as they can. If only.
It breaks my heart thinking that the three of them are already in the Philippines and that their house is not theirs anymore. Luckily, my other sister decided to move to their villa. At least, when I visit her, there’s a feeling that somehow, it’s home, unless she totally changes everything!
I know, I am being overly sentimental, you should have seen me at the airport.
Thankfully, we are now a little ok. We’re still dealing with the change but we’re better than yesterday. DEFINITELY BETTER than Sunday.
Here are some of the photos we’ve taken during the past few days before their flight.
Now, it’s only Joy and I … hmm… I wonder how it’d play out 😀
This is totally new for us.
Happy New Year everyone!
