Thank you silence

To everyone, for all your prayers and condolences, maraming-maraming salamat. More than 40 days after my father's death, the feeling of losing a part of our heart is still there (and will always be, i guess) but we can now smile, we can now laugh, we can now talk about Daddy without a tear and more importantly, I can now see acceptance from the eyes of my mother. God's hands worked in silence, guiding and shaping our minds/hearts and we are thankful for that.

i didn't attend my aunt's funeral last week. it's way too much.

another friend, a mentor na masungit but lovable, is in the hospital.

i want to drive out of town and go fishing.

is that how best to handle grief? hay.

Zherwin, what a coincidence.

Just this morning, I was cleaning my drawers and out fell a card. It was one of those that we got from family friends and relatives when my father died in 2000. It said "We never lose the one we love ... we give them back to Him."

And yes, they will always have that special spot in our hearts.

I'm glad you and your family are well.

Isipin mo na lang na your Dad's in a much better place now, than all of of us here on earth.

Glad to see you back, bro...

hi zherwin, glad to know you and your family are doing ok.

ingat lagi :)

Abaniko said...

We're just so glad you're back. I hope you'll completely bounce back to normalcy soon.

zherwin said...

atticus, another way, and an effective one i bet, is to face it, really face it. masakit pero kung naramdaman mo na sya, ano pa yung pwedeng makasakit sa yo?

zherwin said...

thanks lei. :)

zherwin said...

sexy mom, thank you, and for your poem that speaks so much of grief and the need to move on is beautifully written.

zherwin said...

bugsy, true, and that special spot will forever feel his presence.

zherwin said...

rudy, salamat and i don't think he wants us to mourn longer kaya siguro tinulungan na rin nya kami to recover faster.

zherwin said...

hi carlotta, we're doing okay, thank you very much.

by the way, what's up with the hand? hehehe

zherwin said...

abaniko, tuloy-tuloy na to. salamat. :)

atticus said...

thanks zherwin. you're so right.

lady cess said...

hi zherwin, condolence to you and your family. im sure your dad is very happy up there.

Zherwin, good to know that you guys are getting on fine, esp your mom. I still have my sad moments esp when I see my dad all alone, when all my life he was inseparable from my mom. You are so right, God's hands are indeed busy, helping us all accept and move on with life without our loved one.

We are both ulila na sa ama, but I think your father is still young compared to my father who passed away at 82. I mention Sgt. Teodoro Perion to my scrabble buddy Retired Col. Antonio Malonzo he knows your father he said he was really nice and a good person.

Panaderos said...

I'm glad to see you back, Pards. Although the tears over his loss are gone, he will always remain in your hearts. Take care, Pards.

My prayers are with you and your family. All the best :)

zherwin said...

atticus, applicable din sya sa mga heartaches hehe. :)

zherwin said...

lady cess, i am sure he is. thanks. :)

zherwin said...

ia, on sad moments, we cannot do anything about it. it's good that my mom has a lot on her hands and her being busy with different organizations in our place is really a big help, therapheutic din talaga ang maging busy.

zherwin said...

ysrael, talaga? he knows my dad? small world! my father will be very happy to know that people remembered him to be nice (as he really was).

zherwin said...

panaderos, totoo yan. salamat. :)

zherwin said...
