This Christmas...

It's been a while since my last post. Many things have happened. And they brought emotions I've never felt before.

This will be the first time that I will celebrate Christmas without a father. Sadly, he passed away two weeks ago. Whenever I feel the loss, I just try to see things positively. I tell myself that he just joined our Creator.


And for Gabby and Sunday, this is the third time that they will celebrate Christmas without Fred. The first two years was when Fred went to Saudi Arabia and they were too young to ask for presents then. Now that their Daddy had to go back to KSA again, they already know what they want for Christmas. We went to the toy store last Sunday and they took pics and sent them to Fred. :)

But the four of us will still be together this Christmas. Virtually together, that is. We'll just call Fred on Christmas Eve or maybe, go online.

To all of you who kept visiting my blog while I was away, thanks so much.
Your visits just reminded me that life has to go on. And move on I will! :) Have a blessed December!

Hi Beth!
Sad to hear about your father's demise. Condolence! Kaya pala ang tagal mong nawala! With regards to Fred, no worry! He's just a Skype away. I hope all is fine with you now!

Keep smiling!

It isn't the usual for me to stay online tonight. And tonight I made it an occasion to visit you, only to read about your father's demise. I am sorry to hear about your loss. I do remember you sent me a YM about your Dad. (I barely check my YM but I was able to read it a few days later.)

Christmas time may give us a tinge of sadness as we unavoidably miss the ones we love. They may not be able to be with us physically but for certain they are more "with" us as we remember them in our hearts.

Let us just remember this:

For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. ~William Penn

Let us comfort ourselves with this thought that our dads couldn't be any happier than in where they are now.

May your father's soul and all the departed rest in eternal peace...
