"Amor Vincit Omnia"


Summer is almost over. I can't believe how I've been through so much in such a short span of time. This has to be the worst and the best summer of my life so far. Thank you Lord. Thanks so much for allowing us to survive the worst of things so that we could enjoy the best of things. Thank you so much for standing by; for holding us still and keeping us safe while waiting for the moment when we can breathe easier, and laugh again.

The worst of this summer was so shocking to the point that it almost destroyed the very foundations of that which is most important to me - Family. 

Thank God na totoo nga that love really conquers all. It really does. Kasi pag sobra ka nang nasaktan, if you don't hold on and try to remember what was it that had brought and kept you together in the first place, everything is lost. But when you hold on to love and remember every good thing that it has made possible - all the best moments of your life, when you never let go; it makes you grateful. It makes you strong enough to forgive. From your scattered pieces of self, it makes you whole again. It is the strongest kind of hope there is. While it may never be enough, it really is one of the very few things that really matters because it's at the core of all that is important in anybody's life.

The best of this summer was just magic! Hay, it was like faeries were out playing that day. To think that it was a windy-stormy kind of day and yet, what happened afterwards was all fun and good memories. One of the best moments, aside from those captured in pictures, was reconnecting with an old friend. However, it actually was a bit disturbing to find that someone who was once one of your "little brothers" is all grown up and experiencing so much more mature stuff that you actually do in your own personal life. Disturbing, surprising, amusing....

It feels good that even after all these years, some things do not essentially change. Parang nagkita lang kami after a day even though it has been close to 8 years since we last had a real serious talk about things. The difference is that he is much more able now as a person to deal with those personal things on his own. It was why it was flattering because that being the case, he still chose to share things with me just like the old times. It's not like he did not have other close friends to talk to.. Haay, the joys of friendship!

kaigachi is a conjugation of the Japanese term "kigaicha" or crazy. It roughly translates as "crazy about something."
