The past weeks have been very devastating for our nation and for the world. My heart goes out to all those who are affected, and I am praying for you all. Of course, we also remembered what happened sixteen years ago. As many do every year, I watched the videos of those planes crashing in to the towers and the aftermath over and over and over again. I can still vividly remember that morning and how scared the entire nation was. Sigh… still so heavy.
Have you ever seen so many fireflies in your life? Over the weekend, my parents’ backyard was a surprising showcase of these fascinating little insects. They covered a couple of the trees twinkling their lights, and it was just oh-so beautiful to watch. We tried to take pictures but nothing could do the sight justice, and just our luck, the battery on my SLR camera died. Nevertheless, it was gorgeous, and our family was in complete awe.
Special mention… today is my Nanay’s birthday. Nanay is what we grew up calling our maternal grandmother. Though she is no longer with us physically, we feel her love every single day. I miss her and I know my mom misses her so much more. ❤
