now here's a bit of a good news. my brother, the youngest one, called me up last night to inform me that he will be coming over to mindanao next week to accompany someone and he'll be making a side trip to my place and guess who he's taking along for the visit, MY MOM! i was so elated that the old lady (still sprightly at 70) will be coming over. last time i saw her was in '05, my last visit to manila. this will be the first time that she'll be coming over since our move here in mindanao. the first time also that she will be able to meet in person my youngest daughter who was "made in mindanao". just one of two grand daughters, all the rest are boys (6 of them). my kids are so excited they can't wait until monday. especially so for my two boys who she last saw when they were 3 and 1 yr. old. now they are 11 and 9. that makes it 8 years that she wasn't able to see them. but i guess i'm the most excited seeing her again. timing is just perfect! and in this times that we are economically challenged, i am so thankful to the Lord for this. just the perfect gift for Christmas!

Wow. I'm sure your Mom is as excited [if not more] as you. Everytime I read posts like yours talking about Moms, I can't help but miss my Nanay who passed 8 years ago. She passed 4 months ahead of my Tatang in 2000 so it was an extra hard year for me.

Enjoy your visit from Mom....and you're right, this is such a great Christmas gift.
