Later this afternoon, my family attended the Sunday Mass together for the first time. My mom, my elder sister, my eldest brother, my 4 nephews (3 of which are of my sister and 1 is of my brother) and the two nannies are with me (we consider them as part of the family). It really feels great when you’re with them. Seeing their smile on their faces feels good. It helps you to forget your problems even just for a moment.
On our way home, I felt sad because I would be happier if my dad is still with us. I came to realize that I have never experienced being with my family wherein we are really complete. In every occasion or instance, there is still one who is not with us.
During my graduation day in elementary, one of my brothers is not with us. During my high school graduation, my sister is not with us. Life is so unfair. I never experienced being with my whole family.I was looking some of the pictures of my family a while ago, there I saw my family complete. That’s the time when I wasn’t born yet. That’s the time when my sister graduated as Valedictorian in elementary. As a matter of fact, we don’t even have a family picture together.
Lastly, my family were not complete when my father died. It was only me, my mother and my sister who were there witnessing the last breath of my father. I guess, I have to face the fact that my family will NEVER be complete again. So you guys, always put your family as one of your top priorities (second to God). Enjoy every moment with them. Be with them and always give a time to them. Don’t ignore them and show to them that you love them.
