reading blog posts has always been a favorite hobby of mine. everytime i couldn't sleep, i open my laptop, log in on twitter, tumblr, facebook and blogger.. i would usually concentrate on tumblr but this morning, it was different. i focused more on my main blog which was registered at blogger. i opened different blogs one by one until i came across Palipasan (Aliwan ng Pagal na Isipan). his latest blog entry caught my attention. at the end of his post, there was a question:
"Ikaw kaibigan, pag pamilya ang pinaguusapan, mahirap ba magblog?"
it was a question addressed to anybody who have read his blog. and so, i decided to answer it. i said to myself, "YES, OF COURSE." it's easier to write when you are talking about something that inspires you or something that you are passionate about. blogging about my family is such an easy thing to do because ideas keep running through my mind. i think of how happy my family is and how lucky i am to be a part of it. every time i talk about my family, i really feel a strong energy within me. i am proud to talk about the persons who have always been there for me since the very beginning. they are the ones who have shown me unconditional love, care and patience. that is why, it's easy for me to blog about them because they are my happiness.
MAMA. PAPA. LITTLE BROTHER. they are the most important persons in my life and i swear, i wouldn't exchange them for anything in this world. for nineteen years of living my life, they have always been there to accompany me. they never threaten me of leaving nor have they really left..my dad works abroad for our family to have a better future. it was always his dream to provide us more than what we need.. i know working far from us is not easy. i know that every night, before he goes to sleep, he would look at our pictures and fight the homesickness. every single day, he would want to go back to the Philippines to be with us. he wanted it so much but he couldn't fly back that easy. he needed to work overseas. he needed to be there for us. he needed to be strong for our family. every day, before he goes to work, he would think of us and be inspired to do his job. he thinks of our happiness first before his.. and that makes me so proud of my papa.my mom stays at home and takes good care of us. she is a very good housewife and a very loving mother.. my friends really love her because they think she is a really great person and that i'm lucky to be her daughter. there are times that i argue with my mom especially now that i'm on a stage of making major decisions in my life. i know it's not easy being a mother to a daughter like me. it's hard for her to raise two hard-headed children especially that my dad is not on her side. that is why i salute my mama. i know she misses papa so much but she has no choice but to be away from him for us. it's really a great feeling knowing that my parents would do anything for me and my brother..my brother is my ultimate enemy and best friend. he may not admit how much he really loves me but i know deep down inside him, he loves me so much. he may not thank me always for the projects i made for him, but i know how grateful he really is. it's so great to have him in my life. he may not understand some of my problems, but he is always there to listen and ready to punch anybody who hurts me. he is my protector and my baby. i love my little bro so much.MY FAMILY IS MY MOST PRECIOUS GIFT.
