Well, as usual, "lumubog" na naman ako for over a month, and "lumitaw" uli ngayon. Oo nga, ang tagal kong nawala sa ating blogspot, sa mga online chats at sa mga email and forwarded message exchanges ng ating batch. Mukhang medyo nabawasan ang cyberspace traffic ano?
So here I am to say SORRY uli. Pasensiya na, I was in Orion from April 9 to May 13, to take care of my ailing father and to give moral support to my mother. What a blessing to be able to do that for Inay and Tatay! They - who showered us with so much love and care since birth. They - who taught us to know right from wrong. They - who worked so hard to make our life very comfortable. They - who struggled to provide for our education. They - who prayed incessantly for our many pursuits and aspirations.
My brothers (Nato and James) and my sisters (Tessie and Edna) were also there in our ancestral home in Wawa to make up for the lost time - for the long stretches of time that we've been away from home. We know we made each other happy, reminiscing our unforgettable childhood and adolescent years, remembering family anecdotes, and sharing hearty laughs over so many "kuwentong-papag" of life in Orion.
Memories of that month stay in Orion keep flashing in my mind, especially so that I'm posting this under a mango tree in our backyard here in Isabel, Leyte. What a beautiful ambience!
Wow! I just got a call from our children - Myra Jo, Marc Hil, MicMac and MonMon. Said they're coming home this weekend to give a surprise birthday party for their Dad! Totoo pala - when you give something, it comes back to you a hundredfold. What I did for Inay and Tatay - our children are doing for us now.
Have to post this now - so I can plan ahead for the 4 M's ( and their loved ones) coming!!!
