Thursday, September 02, 2004ON A DATE WITH MYSELF
I've been working late for the past week so for a change, I got off work at exactly 6pm yesterday. I didn't really have anything planned for the night so I went to the Pasig Church, which was a 10-minute jeepney ride from my office.
Huwaaaaatt?!?!? Say that again?
Yesterday, I missed Lola so much. She would always do something to make me feel better when I'm down. From giving massages, saying something funny and absolutely absurd (one time, i was teasing her about having so much money, she said: pubic hair madami ako! The woman is crazy and so lovable!) or giving me money for retail therapy, Lola was the best.
There was a time when Lola and I would go to church every 1st Wednesday of the month to say Novena to our Mother of Perpetual Help. And because I am perpetually in need of help, I went.
I have a confession: I haven't been to church in a looooong time. The last time I was in church prior to last night was during my Lola's funeral, which was what, 7 months ago!?! And I haven't heard Sunday mass in an even longer time (don't bother asking how long it's been). But I pray everyday. I've always believed that when you get to heaven, God's not going to ask you how many times you heard mass in a week or how many prayer meetings you went to. I think, that at the end of your life, he's going to want to know how much good you've done during your time on earth. And to me, that's what really counts.
I'm such a baby but after the novena, as I knelt down to pray, the tears just came rolling. Gave Him my eternal gratitude for always helping me make ends meet and for taking care of me and the people I hold close to my heart. Prayed for the happiness of my family, my friends and L. And told Him that, with his help, I can and will overcome whatever trials life throws my way.
Walked out of the church with my head bent down (kasi there were tears in my eyes and I didn't have tissue) and dropped by an ukay-ukay place nearby. Got myself 3 funky tops and got a big discount for them (thanks to my charming skills! Had to make pa-cute with the tindero pa). Then I went to the grocery near my house to buy toiletries and food for the next couple of weeks.
Aaahhh....all is well with moi.
