Last time, I shared about my life for the past 8 years. As much as possible, I really want to tell and share everything to each one of you, but it’s too long. Well, let’s make it short.
My Mom gave birth to my little brother, and after a year my grandmom died ‘coz of some complications in her tummy. It was the most heart breaking part of my life, knowing that I grew up with my grandmom. What makes it even harder, it was the fact that I was not there on her last moments, I was studying college in Manila at that time. After I heard that she passed away, I flew back as fast as I could. It was the most devastating part of our lives, especially for my Mom. I know how hard it was for her, to be honest my Mom and grandma don’t have a better relationship, but they love each other. I could tell that my Mom was not ok. A week after the burial, I went back to Manila to finish the last semester of my studies. It was hard actually, I had no one to talk to ‘coz my Dad was not in the Philippines at that time, I only live with my stepmom. Time passed by, me and my Mom learned how to live our lives without our dearest grandma. We know that she’s happy now.
I graduated college last 2015 and I started teaching in a private elementary school in the Philippines. Every year we celebrate grandma’s death anniversary, and I couldn’t help myself to cry, wishing she was still alive, so she could see all my hardworks, that I’m already a teacher.
The kind of life that I have right now, is the fruit of all my hardships in life, if it weren’t because of those trials, I would not be here. I owe it all to my Mom and grandma, because of them I became independent and strong. When I started teaching, my point of view in life changed. I visited one of the public schools in our country, and I saw their situation their. I saw the smile on their faces, they were very eager to learn despite of poverty. And at that time, they became my inspiration to stay strong and do more. For them, education is the key to success, and if it weren’t because of that eagerness to learn, I will not be a teacher. Let’s be more patient.
