I always believe in the saying “it is better to give than to receive”. Not all of us are fortunate enough to have the things that we want. Just like me, I do have list of the things that I am dying to have, however, considering my situation I guess I have to admit that those stuffs are just a dream to me. Too good to be true, but I am open to possibility that I will be able to have some of those in my list. I must admit I am envious when I saw someone having the things that I like. How fortunate they are to have the things they like and want. Getting envy is normal I guess, but I am trying my best to not to.
Anyways, few days ago the family and I went to my aunt’s place. We were attending the nine days novena for my late cousin. After the novena, I am having conversation with my other cousins when one cousin got interested in my sling bag. She asked me if I could give it to her. I did not respond at first because I do not have extra sling bag. I have just given away my other sling bag few months ago. However, thinking about giving is a joy in once heart so I talked to the family especially to my sister about it. The sister decided to just give it away. I did give my last sling bag to my cousin that day. It makes me happy seeing her smile after accepting the sling bag. Indeed, the feeling is great to give and bring happiness to other/s.
The reason why I decided to buy laptop is that I can carry it anytime, anywhere compared to my desktop. I do not need to worry if I am traveling or not at home because I can still do my online tasks because I can bring my laptop with me always. Anyways, one day while I am waiting for my sister to arrive, I am browsing over the internet. And thought of searching guitars since the brother is thinking of buying a guitar. I bumped into the Fox Oboes at wwbw. It reminds me of my uncle who used to play the same instrument at the church. Sadly, he is not playing anymore because he is old. This instrument is very unique and I seldom seen a woman playing this kind of instrument. If given the opportunity, I would like to learn how to play this instrument and own one someday.
My cousin is suffering from serious illness for the past years. Even so, he never let his family know of the pain he felt inside. He is able to hide it perfectly. It is because he doesn’t want his family to worry too much. If you were to look at him, if you feel sorry for him because he looks really sickly. But he still manages to smile and make himself feel okay even if it is not. For the past weeks he is acting really strange. And when they asked him, he will say he is okay, he just can’t sleep. I guess he is really in pain. Until one day he asked his sister to bring him to the hospital because he can’t take it anymore.
When advice to be admitted at the hospital, he refuses. Instead, he wants to go home and be with his family. He also said that he is dying. Hearing him saying that he is dying makes his family cried. They don’t want him to give up but he just did. He said, he is surrendering his life to God. He accepted his fate and death. How brave my cousin is. For the remaining days and hours of his life, he is able to say sorry and thank you to his sisters, brothers and mother. It was really a heart breaking scene for his family. They were all crying looking at him fighting for his life. He indeed died peacefully I must say because he is able to say sorry and thank you to his family. Also, he told them to not cry and worry for he is fine.
Once I was a member of choir in our chapel. It was a memorable experience for me. Unfortunately I am no longer a member for some reason. Every time we practice we just borrow cymbals from neighbour because the church does not have cymbals yet, though the chapel’s officers are accepting donations and do fund raising so the chapel will be able to buy cymbals. It would be nice to hear cymbals because it adds lively sound while the choir are singing during mass. When the fund is right, the officers at the chapel is thinking of buying the wuhan 18 china. The look is simple but it is made of good quality also, well hand-crafted. Hopefully soon the chapel will have own cymbals to use by the choir during mass.
