He was discharged, and we hardly had the chance to celebrate when more bad news landed on us – My father in law passed away the following week. He was 59 years old. It was a sudden one; he blacked out- fell, hit the back of his head and went into stroke with an intracranial bleed. He apparently had some kind of infection in his lungs as well, but he was independent til the end. I remember the last time we saw him- he and my mother in law came all the way from PD to visit Riz in the hospital.
- Appreciate one another. See past the faults of your loved ones, and just be grateful to have each other. Make as much memories you can with the ones you love, be it in pictures or in experiences. because you will never know when they’ll be taken away from you.
- Make time. no matter how busy you get, no matter how demanding you job or live is. Spend more time with your loved ones whenever you can. because family is irreplaceable.
- Never take health for granted. It doesn’t matter if supplements don’t work, just try. eat healthy, and feed your children healthy foods.
- Appreciate your kids. no matter how naughty they are, or how they test your patience. Let kids be kids, let them be active. but protect them whenever necessary…trust me, seeing them sick just brings all the guiltiness back at ya.
- Be grateful of what God has given to you. it doesn’t matter if you are not well off, or you’re deprived of your loved ones, you don’t have the gift of time, or people are not sensitive enough towards your feelings. be grateful. because no matter how bad things are, of course there are people better and above you. but there are also people who are less fortunate. and these are the people you need to relate yourself to. and perhaps try to work hard to achieve the success of those above you.
