It’s my last night in the Philippines and tomorrow I fly back to America. It’s a bittersweet moment again. It’s sad to leave behind my family and friends but at the same time I am excited to go home to Tashi, PoopyBuhda and NinNin.
Earlier today my Godchild, L.A. asked me to join her and her Mom, for some girl-time and pampering at the salon. I thought it would be a great opportunity for some bonding moments with them and I also wanted a haircut before going home so I gladly obliged. She said it would be her treat to me. Even better.
It was good to spend time with her and talk about adult stuff. I used to tease her a lot and just be goofballs together so it felt a little weird listening to her talk about life in a more serious tone. It felt reassuring though. I felt more confident about her; despite her young age I sensed maturity.
Thank you, my Misha for the wonderful treat. I appreciate the gesture and I am proud of you. There will be more challenges ahead but rest assured, your Mama and Ninang will always be here for you.
A Goddaughter is a treasure whose worth you cannot measure except by the love in your heart. – unknown
