Death is something that is difficult to digest. I'm telling you. It's nasty. But my Lola, for some reason, foresaw this and she made a prayer... "Prayer for a Happy Death". In that prayer mentions the loved ones that are left behind. "Let them not mourn for me long for it is only temporary".
I believe my Lola. There is a heaven and in the end, and I'll see her when my time comes.
Not mourning will only make it worse... Do not pretend that all is well. YOU HAVE TO GRIEVE if you're going through mourning. If you don't, it'll hit you harder. Believe me. Instead, celebrate the life of that person.
On Monday, I'll celebrate my Lola's life and legacy she left behind. She's touched soooo many lives in life and death.
I know I've been blogging a lot about my Lola but I can't help it. I don't want her being forgotten. In a way, I want to pass on the lessons I learned from her.
So to the people reading this blog and comment that they get inspired, Thank you very much. I'm happy it does. I will do my best to do that.
Let me leave this entry with a quote from my Lola.
"If there is one last thing that I want to do, I would like to reconnect with the real strengths
and underlying virtues of Filipinos, the fine attributes which make our people not only
worth dying for, but equally important worth living and sacrificing for."
