One night during holy week, my siblings and I stayed at our grandparents’ place, while mother attended a reunion. As we were watching TV, our lola, suffering from dementia, came out from their room and was shocked to find 7 “strangers” in her house in the middle of the night. Instead of asking us who we are, she asked us where we would be spending the night. She even barged in the other room and woke up the sleeping helper to guarantee that we would have a room to sleep in. Her caring nature GMH.
Happy 92nd Birthday, Lola Rosario “Charing” De Asis Panahon!
I love you, even though you may not remember nor recognize me anymore.
i remember, back in 4th yr high school, when we were choosing which university to go to for college, i asked my friend, Mayee, and myself a similar question…
“would you rather be an honor/excelling student in (insert other universities here) or be an average student in the best university in the country?”
we both chose the latter, for reasons that are too numerous to enumerate in this post.
