A year ago, it was just me and my brother here at home during New Year's Eve. My parents were out of town last year. However, we did spend it with my Lola's youngest Sister, Lola P. She said that she would always be there for her 8 extra grandchildren.
Anyway, a year ago was the first and only time my Lola Cory appeared to me in a dream. After she passed away, I really wished for her to appear to me in a dream or something. So at the end of 2009, she was in my dream!
I was visiting her in her house in Times and she was in bed resting. I kissed her and she said "Justin! I missed you!" (She'd always call me by my real name :) ) After that moment, I woke up in bed. It was dark. But I smiled and said "Hi Lola, I miss you too." She seemed happy and I know she's up there watching over us. It's been over a year now and I still miss my Lola each and everyday...
2010 has been a roller coaster ride for me and my family. The campaign trail was busy. The elections were nerve wracking. Post-elections is even harder. But despite all that, God has been good to us. I'm thankful for the year that was.
2011 will definitely have ups and downs. Hopefully more ups! Another 365 days.
Anyway, here's to a New Year everyone! I wish you and your families all the best in 2011! Manatili tayong lahat sa tuwid na daan! :)
Happy New Year!
