MY ROOT

My heart is moved tonight to post something that has something to do with my feelings towards my  grandmother. First, I wanted to reserved this space for my Ailing Lola right now because I felt that I really owe her a lot. My heart's desire to take care of her is not enough. Though I know she is on good hand with her daughter's care,my Aunt. I also have this longing to also take care of her personally. There are hindrances which is why my might is limited. I am here living in Manila, and my Lola is in the province. I can give some financial support, but it is not enough. I know Lola needs more love, understanding and attention and prayers more than money could do, more than material things in this world we can offer her. 

To my Lola, you broke my heart, I can't stand seeing you in your situation right now. I wish I have the power to pull back time  The days when you can walk on your own, choose the food you wish to eat, visit the places where you plan to go. But all I can do now, is pray, pray pray , that your strength would get back. I am asking God to  heal you and put back your strength and to give you another fifteen years to live or more. By faith I claim my prayers. Amen. To my Aunties and Uncle who patiently takes care of Lola, Thank you. My you all be blessed with good health and patience.

Hello, Yen! People grow old, like anyone of us. But, it's a good thing that your aunts still takes care of her. I've seen people who treated their parents like hard headed pets. I took care of my own grand father, including changing his diapers, giving him a bath and etc. I know how difficult it is to deal with elderly, that's why It really requires patience. I hope your Lola gets better, and better! God bless!

I hope that your lola will get better. I know that it is a hard situation for you now because you are away from her but at least, you are assured that your lola is in good hands. :)

Take care! Do not lose hope. God often hears our prayers.
