Aning panahona kay mamingaw ko kay Lola ug Auntie. They were the light of each Christmas party.
Kada bata, naay regalo ug naay games for both kids and not so young. Aning panahuna (bday ni lolo ug lola or any get-together), mamingaw gyud ko kang auntie ug sa iyang heartfelt prayers na English uttered with her soft voice. She mentions each family in our prayers. Each prayer, she would cry because I know she misses Lolo and Lola. She continued and carried on with the get-together, games and laughter. Now, we miss her.
Mingaw ang Christmas w/o them and this year, we will break the tradition Lolo and Lola started. Sad but this is life. We need to move on and start building our own tradition.
