Adele, blue Tic Tac, Caldereta, perfect pasta, U2, The Wallflowers, bubbly people, the beach, hiking... these are just some of the things that trigger her memories.
Today marks the day when she left us physically. A year had passed but I can still recall every detail and emotion of that day. There are times when I still wait for her, only to realize that it's not possible. This is the hardest part. Only her memories remain. I don't wanna count those days but as my brother Billy said "It's to honor one of the greatest persons who touched the earth". Difficult as it is to accept, life must go on.
Here are some of her favorite food that we had today in remembrance of her.
|Cheesy Beef Lasagna|
No one cooks a perfect lasagna but Midz. Every bite makes the fireworks go boom! Now my Mom was the one who made it. She doesn't usually cook but she managed to make it really yummy. I know she's proud of it (and I can imagine her reaction while reading this) :D
|Buffalo Wings and Onion Rings with Ranch Dressing|
|Creamy Fruit Salad|
This is just to wash off the palate. My Mom makes really good salads. Fresh apples mixed with the canned fruit cocktail, dressed in cream and a right amount of condensed milk.
It's so unfair that you have to leave us too soon
There were so many people whom you touched
There were so many things that I'd like to do with you
I'm fortunate to have met you in this life time, lucky enough to be your sister
I know we'll meet again some day, somewhere
And I'm looking forward to that day
But for now all I can do is just look back at those memories and just cry it out at times
You showed me how to live life to the fullest
Now your influence is a part of who I am
I love you and miss you so much, every single day...
Two months from now, it's Nanay's first year. Healing takes time.
