You might be asking how I am so I thought I would tell you.

I am better than yesterday. Thank you.

I think I have visited more than enough hospitals this year, seen few hospital beds and met handful of people, which is good for an introvert like me. I am not shy. I am just big on privacy, personal space and a firm believer of not talking to strangers. So the nurses and doctors I’ve met? You people are amazing. We should give one day in year to honor you.

The past month has been beyond hard. The worst was the weekend before last. But mother is doing well on Letrozole and B-complex and some vitamins. She now laughs a little, speaks livelier and eats healthier. Recovery road is a long travel. And she needs all these synthetic pills, and our constant love and support to live longer. It is expensive, tiring, stressful and depressing. But we need to choose to stand back up again in life. One foot in front of the other is sometimes the best way we can manage.

We did indeed go see her every weekend and every single time we see her, we walk off somehow feeling enriched and better ourselves. She is okay, we are okay.

There's a quote by somebody famous about how, we must not be afraid to share the hard times in our life. Something about poets heralding the darkness, because if it doesn't get documented, how will people know we got through? That they can get through as well?

So. That's where I'm at. I'm ok enough to log on to my computer and upload some photos and write some words, so that's something. I miss the days of just coming to blog and offloading like I used to, without worrying that some people I love will die, and that bad things will still come one day.

At this point I don't care. It's night-time and it's raining. Tomorrow is a whole new day.


This verse has kept me alive. I think about it and it made a whole world of sense.

Isn't it?


  1. I am glad to hear that your Mom is now okay. This month was a trying time for me and my family as well because my Mom was confined too for almost three weeks. She now okay and getting better each day.

    Blessings to you and your family.

    1. Hi Sarah, I am glad to hear about your mom is doing okay. If only mothers don't grow old, let alone get sick or die, then it is okay. But yeah, we all need that moment where we can only trust God about our love ones. Blessings to your whole family...

  2. Hello.... sana maging okay na ang lahat.... sama din kita sa prayers ko....

    smile muna diyan....

    1. Thanks Jon. I know your mother is under the weather too. So I'm hoping for all the sick mothers to get okay. It's difficult but we can all can get through this..Goodluck to your new books!
