Lookout for a Loved One

Tuesday, November 08, 2011

Three of my relatives are now reunited with God -- my uncle-in-law, grandmom-in-law, and my dearest uncle -- all from the mother side. The death of my uncle affected me the most. We used to celebrate family occasions together, especially Christmas. What makes life in this world so unpredictable is the fact that the day before he died, we were still able to talk over the phone and sing a song merrily. I had no idea, instinct, nor ESP that it would be his last hello from him, last conversation with me. Although I know that we are souls and that we wander around... and we can be fortunate to see them in the next life, the feeling of losing a person whom you are used to be with especially in times of merriment... it's the last thing I'd want to feel.

For the past days my cousins and I were the ones who stayed at the funeral to look over the place. My usual lookout hours (while others are asleep) is from 1-6AM. During that span of time, I pray and talk to my uncle, study for NMAT, and watch over my relatives who were asleep. I feel so sad but I need to be strong. Life will be tougher the next time, I know. Only few people close to me know about this. I just wanted to let my sad feelings out; thanks to this blog and of course to you my netfriends!

On another note, here are two tags I got recently from two of my blogfriends, Gail and Esma. Read on to know more about me! ;)

If I have free time, I see to it to sleep and rest. :D

  19. About 10,000 years ago during the Jurassic period on this the largest planet, when the first truly enlightened and evolved man was just learning how to not get his feet wet, there was a great little voice nearby overheard in the distance in the dead of night one day…”Less is More”..
