Thirteen Years Today

That's how long my 'Nanay' has been gone. I still think about her regularly especially lately. I wasn't around when she went. I was hudreds of miles away...a plane ride away....when she departed. I was devastated to say the least but after seeing what I saw this past couple of weeks, I am rather relieved that she went the way she did. Quickly...even if I wasn't around. She was never bedridden. She was confined and couldn't go anywhere without assistance but she could walk around. As a matter of fact, she was still mobile on the day she died. Above all, I'm glad she didn't need any pain medications to get her through each breath.

So today, I'm thinking about her and how much I miss her. For now, I'll just say a prayer or two for her and hope that one day when it's my time to go, I'll see her [and my Tatang] again. Wherever that is...
