A tale of friendship
(This blog was sent to me by its blogger, Pilar Villegas-Cuevas, for posting in our blogspot. She is still in the process of unpacking her stuff in her new home, so she is not able to access the internet yet.)
First it was Cora and me. We became close friends while we were in junior high at JRI. We spent the vacant periods in the sheds in school, studying our lessons for the next subjects (EHEM!) - well. sometimes. Actually, we talked about anything that caught our fancy, and giggled at funny (most of the time - corny) stories. In the afternoons, we walked home together, she to Wakas, and me to Bilolo.
We lost contact when we went to Manila for our college studies. More so, when we started working and later got married and migrated to different countries- she to Australia and me to the U.S. God knows how much I tried to reconnect to her, but was unable to, until Ruben (Ben Ruben before) was able to trace her whereabouts and so thoughtfully sent me her email. How wonderful to feel the warmth of friendship again with the one person I admire so much! Simply, the best! That's my friend, Azon.
On the other hand, my friendship with Josie started in 2004 only, when we met at the Orion church. I got her email address from Belen, so I emailed her when I reached home. She emailed me back immediately. Didn't realize that Josie is so "kalog" - there's never a dull moment with her. Just like me, she's also a "computer addict" so we email each other daily. The daily email exchange and the countless online chats brought us closer in friendship.
GOD IS SO KIND! He gave Cora, Josie and me a chance to be together during our Grand reunion! MAD and MAT! Tres Rosas, Tres Dahlias, CORAJOLARPS! Yeah, CORAJOLARPS, forever!!!
