2011 - A Year of Beginnings and Endings

A lot of good and sad things happened in my life this year. 

The happiest of which is that my husband and I embarked again on yet another exciting journey in life, as a new door of opportunity came along for to us to live and and work in Singapore this time. He's already there now and I will soon follow before the year ends. New place, new adventures, new friends and new experiences. There's a lot I can't wait to tell you about when I get there.  

The saddest... well, what could saddest and more painful than losing a loved one. My mom had a peaceful "coming home" to the Lord last Dec. 10, she died in her sleep. Though it was so hard to say goodbye, I am thankful that before she left, we were able to spend a lot of quality time together and I was able to personally take care of her when she got sick and had to go through dialysis. She was a great mother to us, I will miss her laughter, her smile, her embrace. Words are just not enough to contain how I feel as I am writing this, I just love her so much. She will be missed so badly by everyone who has been part of her life. I take comfort in knowing that she is in a better and happier place now. 

As I close this year, I honor my mom. Despite the sadness I feel when I think of her, still my heart wells up with thanks to God for giving me a mother like her. All the wonderful memories she left with us will live on in our hearts and will forever be cherished. We love you Nanay!
