More than a year later...

It's been more than a year since I blogged here.

Too many things have happened since then. Going back seems a futile exercise. In a nutshell...

My dad died.

I delivered his eulogy upon my mom's request. Couldn't even finish it without crying. Up to now, I still can't believe that I won't see him anymore.

What else?

Some people's true colors came out after my dad died. Which I've long known about, but was unfortunately discovered by others only recently.

I became certain of certain things. Like love, friendship and loyalty. Those who cared for me were there for me. I'm so thankful for that.

The weird thing with grief? I realized no one really gets over it. Some days are good; others, bad. You just take each day as it comes.

Life is really about endings and beginnings. While the endings can be painful, it's necessary for something new to begin.

Hello there Cez. :) I finally had the guts to leave you a message. I'm lost for words, sad to know about your Dad. Anyhow, I'm thankful that we've reconnected again through Twitter. Your tweet means a lot to me. God bless you always!
