Unforgettable September

There are lots of things I remember that happened in the month of September. Some are happy memories, some are not. Let me start with the not so happy memories. It was September 1978 when my grandpa in my mother side passed away. He was just buried in the morning and some of our relatives from other province were still in the house after the funeral. Then in the afternoon, my mom who was bedridden due to breast cancer passed away. I was only 16 then, my sis Violy was 14, Celso was 12 and Albin was 10. It wasn't easy to lose our mom at our young age. Within that month, we lost 2 of our loved ones. Last month, September 27th, 32 years after my grandpa and my mom passed away, my li'l sister Violy passed away. That was not easy I tell you. My sister and I were very close to each other and it's very hard to accept that she's gone.

There were also happy memories that happened in the month of September. My most unforgettable day that happened in my life is when hubby and I tied the knot on September 11, 2002. It was my most special day because I waited for 40 years before I found the man of my dreams and marched down the isle to marry him. Also, it was in the month of September when I got my US visa and flew to the US on the same month, September 2003. My late li'l sister's birthday falls on September 23rd so we always had a celebration every year and the last one was last month, 4 days before she passed away. The month of September brings back sad and happy memories...
