I got this note from my girls in Singapore nine days after my mom passed away. I was still in Manila, coming to grips with burying the person I loved the most only four days ago. The photo above, sent with the message, reminded me that I may be alone at the moment inside my parents’ bedroom, hopelessly trying to take in the fading scent of my mom’s perfume on her pillows, but I AM NOT ALONE in this journey of grief.

Of course, it would take me another year or so to really BELIEVE that statement above. :P In His time, my friends. In His Time.
