I couldn’t believe I wrote this seven years ago. My daughter successfully graduated from college and is already working:
I accompanied my daughter to school for the freshman orientation yesterday. I was thankful that the school allowed parents to enter the auditorium and listen to the orientation. The event was well-organized and concluded on time. The resource persons have explained well the mission and vision of the school. Important things new students need to know were presented through an audio-visual presentation. The students seem excited about the co curricular activities they can participate in besides the activities in their academic program. And just before the program ended, one of the speakers advised the students that in order for them to be successful in their studies, they need a lot of hard work and prayers.
I found this old but “cute” family picture in a pile of paper for disposal. This was taken inside a photo booth and the image was printed on sticker paper (about an inch size). I think the kids were about 5 and 3 years old when this was taken. Hubby decided to scan the photo for memories’ sake.
My cousin Cecil would have been 48 today (June 28). She died four days before Christmas Day in 2015. Her family visited her at the cemetery where they offered flowers and prayers to commemorate her birthday on earth. I remember her as a tough cookie. She doesn’t easily give in to life’s challenges especially when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. She remained positive even up to her last few weeks. I did not hear anything negative from her. If she were alive today, she could be the one helping some family members who are in dire straits. She was a year older than me but I admit she’s more mature when it comes to decision making. I miss you Cez. Happy birthday wherever you are. :'(
