Lesson: For those who can relate to this: Let us remember that the family is the backbone of our earthly existence.
After that “blessed horrific event” in 2010, I was doing wonderfully well with my powerful beginnings. Wonders and miracles were in abundance. I often saw family and close friends, whom I have missed through my years of absence in the land of my birth. A family member became my house organizer and personal assistant, all rolled into one. Then with her holiday plans firmly set that I was not aware of, she left. I was left holding an empty bag. That left me spinning around, almost out of control, because I felt that I was not really considered a member of the family. And I thought I was a member! I prayed and affirmed, and the hurt continued. I felt alone and lonely, especially with the holidays fast approaching.
(I have always believed that God always provides. He sent a beautiful, happy, and kind lady–Luvy–who has become a companion and assistant. I call her my “roommate.” Praise God!)
On Christmas day, my son, GG, who lives in Providence, Rhode Island, called. I shared with him my pain, and he mentioned about about creating my own family. So what did I do? I made plans for some close friends and their families to visit on Christmas day. They did–14 total: l baby, adults and young ones. We had a ball swimming in the pool, eating good food, and sharing our lives with each other before they left. (Yes! Even the younger ones learned how to share.) I call them my “Christmas family.”
Few days before the end of the year, I took time to visit some of my relatives in Novaliches, Quezon City. I gave and got plenty of love and fun from them.
Yes, indeed! We create whatever we need. In fact, we give whatever we need.
May 2012 be a glorious year for all of us.
