Together

Monday, January 4, 2010

The usual buko salad, egg rolls, spaghetti, caldereta, and pork barbecue were all there on the dining table, but the people who used to enjoy the food were not present anymore. What looked like a simple feast was actually an effort to continue the family tradition on New Year’s Eve despite the glaring—and painful--fact that only four of us remain now - my brother, my sister, my mother and I. In each moment, I felt my heart melt within me with happiness. Yes, there were only four of us during the holidays, but we were happy. And we were together.
