“THOU WHO TAKEST AWAY…”

Yet again, I am reminded of the frailty of our earth life. That we have no control over it no matter how much wealth we have gained, how high we climbed the ladder of success, or how shiny our name is to others. Life simply is not in our hands!

A sister to the wife of the brother of my mother’s father, known to many as Tita Claire, passed away just 3 days ago. (Have you worked out yet who she is to me? Hehehe) In relation, she’s not blood related…but in respect she’s a grandmother-on-the-other-side. With others maybe, it should be next to nothing…but to me she’s a grandma and a friend.

A few years back, Tita Claire’s husband was a patient whose formula feeding I personally monitored, and coordinated with the attending physician. Though we acknowledge each other during big gatherings before, we didn’t get acquainted as we are during those trying times. If she’s a little strict and snob in others perspective, to me she’s sweet. And so, this sudden passing shook me into wakefulness… for neglecting paying her a visit (and so with other friends and relatives) after so many years. Now it’s too late. She had an unexpected heart attack that even her closest kin hadn’t anticipated. Just as it did to Michael Jackson…but this time we knew each other, and there’s the possibility of seeing her prior to the incident since she’s just a few hours away from me and not an airplane away.

AN ADVICE: do your thing TODAY not tomorrow. Call an old friend, send letters to long lost loved ones, visit people who matters while you still can. Life is too short. It may be taken away from them or from you by “thou who takest away…”
