wasting time with precious friends!
November 1, 2012 [Thursday]
Another day to cherish!
Today I had the chance to be with my precious friends as we took time being with each other for a meal and for sharing stories of our personal lives.
Itchan, Phat, Fr. Ric, Ate Joy, Ate Lilia, Resty and Ate Elvie went to the the house of ate Michelle where she worked here in Jerusalem. We had a well prepared meal today out of what I consider as “Labor of Love” of ate Michelle. Of course she was helped by others in cooking. Resty who has just recovered from a minor operation last week was with Ate Michelle, Ate Lilia too had the opportunity to be there with them coaching what to prepare [joke]! But indeed this day was filled with so much gratitude and love.
Later in the afternoon Ate Nenita came to join us. It was nice to hear her story before she came here in Israel. Her story is something I want to know for my planned “Faith Journey Book in the Holy Land by our Migrant Workers.”
Maraming Salamat.. It was a relaxing day! For sure this is not the last! These are the memories that I will remember and will miss later on!
Thank you Lord for this time. I consider these friends of my mine as the “Living Saints of our Time.”
