Been going through a rough time on the health front. My Mom's specifically. We're all scrambling to make sense out of all of the news. My relatives have been our first allies. I got a cousin who, without any prodding, went to be present at the test. My Aunts and other cousins readily contributed when we said we'd have to raise funds - we didn't even have to ask. They just gave. Isn't that amazing? Their hearts are just bursting with so much generosity. That's what I love about our family, we are fiercely loyal. And also fiercely tsismosa about each other's lives LOL.
Our little boy readily gave up his birthday plans, so he can give the money
for his Lola. I was the affected one, because I want to give him a great
7th birthday... but he happily gave it up. I said we'll do a Jollibee
birthday. He said it's a waste of money. He'll just have a playdate
God is just an amazing God. He's never put us down. His love
and mercy are endless. When the news of what my Mom has first reached me,
I couldn't contain my emotions. I, myself, was in the hospital for a
minor check-up the moment the results came out but I wasn't afraid for me, I
was afraid what it meant for my family. I desperately wanted to control
my tears, but I couldn't. First time I cried in an elevator ride.
First time I cried buckets at the hospital chapel. I thought it was all
hopeless and I didn't know how to pray so I just said that God will take care
of it, He always has. And He did, He still does.
So today I heard wonderful news. My Dad's health insurance will cover
the very expensive procedure that my Mom needs ASAP. We don't have
worry about raising the funds. We just have to think about Mama getting
better. It's an endless manifestation of God's goodness. And I'm
infinity grateful. I'm totally floored!
