Thankful For The Life of My Lola

If there's one thing in the world that I wanted to do in my life, it is to make all my loved ones happy especially my grandmother who is already 78 years old. Her life is always a blessing to all of us. At 78, she is still capable of taking care of herself and her grandchildren. Lola Charity came to visit us last month. We didn't have much time to tour her around the city because my father was in the hospital that time and my cousin who came with her was also hospitalized. I was really really busy taking care of them.

My lola's health is still stable although she is having difficulty seeing things clearly because of her cataract. I brought her for check up before she went home and the doctor advised that she needs an eye operation. We are currently working on our funds for her operation and hopefully the operation will be done soon.

I find great joy spending time with my lola especially when I see her happy and laughing over simple things. I pray that the Lord will give her long life and that her operation will be materialize soon for her to enjoy life and see beautiful things once again.


How Do You Spend Holy Week?

Holy Week is one of the important religious celebrations for  Catholic believers  like me. I remember when Bren and I visited seven churches and attended a long procession to commemorate Semana Santa years back. Holy Week  is also a great opportunity for every family to bond and spend time together since it is a long holiday and most people are on vacation.

I wish to participate in all the church activities this Holy Week but maybe I would not be able to do that giving prior consideration to Bella's health. I am planning to visit the church tomorrow and hopefully bring Bella, if her colds will get better and the weather will cooperate. :-)

I hope and pray  that every Catholic family will have a reflective Holy Week. We might spend it differently but let's not forget that the true meaning of the season is to remember how our Lord Jesus Christ suffered and died on the cross  to save us from sins. As a Christian, this is to remind me and all of us to live the life that Christ wanted for us.

What about you, how do you plan to spend Holy Week this year?
