My Lola

My grandmother on the father side is already 95 years old. She's not that weak but not that strong but we are thanking God that she is still with us. Last Friday when I got home, my mother and my sisters were watching 'Maalaala Mo Kaya' with episode 'Yellow Sofa'. It was a story about the houseboy who was sent to school by his amo who turned out be a great lola at the end. That episode touched my heart. I love my lola so much. I admit, I'm a lola's boy. When I was a kid and she was so strong, madalas nyang pagalitan ang ibang kapatid ko, pero ako hindi masyado. Basta gusto ko, okay sa kanya!

But now she's not that strong enough, she is already blind. She also told us that she sees several of our dead relatives surrounding her and we cannot see them. We are wondering how she see those people now that she's blind? Is it just an imagination or she really sees something that our eyes cannot see. We are always here for her and will support all her needs.

She always drink Lacto Pafi which is a food supplement and health drink. She also has these medicines that my aunt always prepare for her. But she can still eat on her own, bath and dress herself. I always make sure to have a time talking with her and listening to those never ending stories about her life and all she went thru, madaldal na si lola. I'm wishing that she will reach until the age of 200.
