Our family is the most important part of our lives. I can never imagine losing one of my loved ones. I can let go of a lot of material things, for as long as my family is happy and complete. And I am saddened when families have to be torn apart because of the need to work abroad to be able to give the children a better life. I hope to never make this sacrifice. I am lucky that my kids want us more than they want material things. "Di bale na hindi masyado madaming pera, basta masaya at magkakasama." And moments like what we had above when we went swimming for Ishi's 8th birthday is something that I hold dear in my heart. Moments like this, and not money, makes my life worth living!
