I’ll never get tired of reading your graduation letter

Hello daughter. Would you be giving me an updated version of this letter? 🙂 You gave me this one when you graduated from high school. That was in March 2013. On August 4, daddy and I will be witnessing another milestone in your life as you will be marching again to receive your college diploma. Ang bilis talaga ng panahon…Praying to God to guide and protect you always. Love you, anak. We’ll always be here to support you. 🙂

She would have been 48 today

My cousin Cecil would have been 48 today (June 28). She died four days before Christmas Day in 2015. Her family visited her at the cemetery where they offered flowers and prayers to commemorate her birthday on earth. I remember her as a tough cookie. She doesn’t easily give in to life’s challenges especially when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. She remained positive even up to her last few weeks. I did not hear anything negative from her. If she were alive today, she could be the one helping some family members who are in dire straits. She was a year older than me but I admit she’s more mature when it comes to decision making. I miss you Cez. Happy birthday wherever you are. :'(
