Saddest Birthday

My birthday is on September 5. An this will be the`saddest birthday. My father informed just a few minutes ago, that my grandmother (maternal) died. It was sudden. A few hours earlier our relatives from Bohol called telling that mama eyang was rushed into the hospital. My grandmother is a healthy woman so it really shocked us to know that. I feel so sad. When my mother called me, I cried so hard. Her death affected me very mucH. She is the only living grandparent I have since my other grandparents died when I was really young. I admit we are not really close since she could not speak tagalog that much. But I love her and always admire her for being a strong woman. She lives alone in Bohol although almost of her neighbors are relatives. I just feel so sad, because I haven't seen her in like 6 years. My mother saw her last year when they had a vacation. Who would have thought it would be the last? It just painful for me because I know my mother is in pain because she was not with her mother on her last few moments here in this world. We have a plan pa naman that after I graduate we will visit her. It will not happen anymore. I just feel so sad right now. I'm still in shock that Mama Eyang is no longer with us.

God Bless mama Eyang. I love you very much and I'm sorry

When all is ready, umpires are elected, and after these have taken the distinguished place usually occupied by the teacher, the young people of the school choose the two best scholars to head the opposing classes.. In this latter class of dreams we recognized the influence of the dream censor.. Buller, who thought they were going to upset; and sometimes they sank into soft mud, horrifying Mr.. I only ask for time in which to arrange my affairs. Watkinson, and a young lady, whom she introduced as her daughter Jane.. You are quite welcome to make use, as my guest, of the small room over the kitchen.. They were bowling along through another avenue of trees when the driver suddenly shouted, Whoa there! The horses were brought up with a jerk that was well nigh fatal to the assortment of dignity inside the coach.. During the anecdotes Hargraves never failed to laugh at exactly the right point.. This, indeed, if your words fail you, answers even in public extempore speech--but better where other talking is going on.. I'm just that way when I get thrown off the track.. Fluker felt that he was becoming a little confused.. The governor smiled approvingly, and looked at my grandfather. He had been in a runaway before, and he could not help thinking how much better a wagon was than a boat in such a case.. He never smiled, he never frowned, he never changed his voice from the gentle-flowing key to which he tuned his initial sentence, he never betrayed the slightest suspicion of enthusiasm; but all through the interminable narrative there ran a vein of impressive earnestness and sincerity, which showed me plainly that, so far from his imagining that there was anything ridiculous or funny about his story, he regarded it as a really important matter, and admired its two heroes as men of transcendent genius in finesse.. Brede's little cry of startled rapture, I motioned to Brede to look up.. Picked myself up this mornin'.. He scuffed the dust up wantonly, for he wished to veil the all-too-brilliant polish of his cowhide shoes.. He had never supposed that such an absurd proposition would be accepted.. Prue and I accompanied him. Poor Gorges was late from Augusta.
