Christmas = Love

well i guess its true,
Christmas = Love.

hmmm... malamig na ang simoy ng hangin, na-aamoy ko na din ang bagong lutong puto-bumbong. Pasko na nga.
hay, this will be my first Christmas without my dad, sad... but im just thinking that he is in a better place now, happy with our creator, watching over us. to tell you honestly, its hard. pero i know na death, like being born, is part of life's cycle...

what happened made me realized what's the true essence of Christmas.
Before, i was seeing it as a time for family reunions, gift-giving and celebration.
But now, i realized that its not just about the celebration, the mouth-watering food on our table but the most special thing is the moment we spent with our loved ones.
masaya na lahat kayo ay nandun sa moment na yun, sharing stories and laughing about stuff while preparing the food that you will share sa noche buena.. yung preparation and yung mga funny moments nyo...
then all of you will go to mass, to give thanks to the Lord, yung moment kung san lahat kayo sama-samang magdadasal at hihingi ng pasasalamat sa ating lumikha...
after mass, you will enjoy the meal that you all helped to prepare.
tas yung moment na mag exchange kayo ng gifts, and everyone will just simply enjoy the moment.

masarap yung ganun...

"dad, we will surely miss you this Christmas, the laughter you bring to the house, the stories you will share and the comfort that only you, can give. we miss you..."

    Ganda ng picture ng dalawang parol!

    Alam kong di pa kayo nakaka-adjust sa pagkawala ng iyong ama pero tama ka, bahagi talaga 'yan ng buhay.

    Maganda ang iyong napansin, kaya dapat habang kasama pa natin ang ating mga mahal sa buhay, araw-araw dapat ay Christmas. Dahil sabi mo nga: Christmas = LOVE.

    Maligayang Pasko, BJ! o",)

  2. happy holidays to both of you kuya rj and "looking for the source"...
