Mama’s Grand Vacation

family, It's my Life, relationship Add comments

My sister, Patty and I met our mother at SM Megamall last Monday from her week-long vacation in Antique. My cousin sent me a text message about their arrival time and when we expect mama to get off the bus from Baclaran.

I can tell that my mother enjoyed her vacation. She said that one week is not enough to compensate for the 39 years that she has not gone back to her hometown. When they arrived in Ilo-Ilo airport last Monday, they were met by her mother and sisters. She said that they all cried upon seeing each other after so many years, but it was tears of joy. :)

She said that their Kuya Fred was very happy to see them all. She met her nephews and nieces and their children for the first time. What so funny is that, when you ask her about their names, she doesn’t remember anymore. Hehehe!

Mama enjoying the sugar like sand of Boracay

She told us that all their relatives are happy to see them. Every day, they eat lunch and dinner from different houses. It was like “fiesta” everyday. :)

One of the things that she enjoyed the most was her visit to Boracay. My sister Patty envied our mother because of this. She described the white sand of Bora like fine white sugar. She said that she really enjoyed the clear water and just simply walking to the shore. :) She was with my Tita Edna and her family, Tita Ellen and Tita Alice. She said that she and her sisters were able to bond and catch up with each other. She told us that my Tita Alice and Tita Nida were only grade school students when she left Antique for Manila. :)

Elseario Family

When it’s time to go back to their own families, they cried again for they wouldn’t know when they will be seeing each other again. But the memories created in that vacation will always be treasured and remembered. Everyone is hoping that it wouldn’t be the last. We are hoping that the next time a family reunion will be held, and then my sisters, Nonet and I would be able to come along too with our mother. :)

Ciao! :)
