When I was young, all I think about is myself. As I get older and become mature, I realized life is not just about asking money from my parents, playing around and hanging out with friends. I did not even think of the importance of education until I graduated. When I became a wife and a mother, that’s when it hit me….that I have to do my best for my kids’ future. Such is the circle of life. We pay it forward. We pay it back.
My grandmother, who is now 90 years old and lives 300km away from us in Northern Luzon, fell ill just recently and was rushed to the hospital. My mom immediately went to her aid as soon as she heard the news. We are so glad that my grandma has fully recovered from her illness and is now ready to be discharged from the hospital.
There comes a point in your life that you may want to stop the world from turning and catch your breath. And maybe hook up with your old friends once in a while to see how things are going on. Well, I made that kind of move this week when one of my old buddies, through our Facebook accounts, contacted and agreed to meet me at Harbor Point Mall.
Plenty of catching up to do? You bet and we ended up having a very good and fun conversation and a light snack at T.G.I. Friday’s. Since both of us are happily married, we talked about a lot of things and compared notes from what have we done lately, about the kids, about our hubbies, vacation plans for the future, potential business ventures, even health issues. Haha!
