Windy wandering (mahangin sa labas)

My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.

To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…

Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.

– My only statement. My brothers’ are also online. Thank you for all your kindness, and goodbye for awhile guys. xo (via zeldawilliams) Via Contrariwise

Happy Mother’s Day! Here’s my amazing Mama who never stops growing in beauty, inside and out… Her fierce spirit, wisdom, and love keeps our family strong! I know love because she loves me unconditionally! My hearty laughter must have come from her too! I hope one day I can make my class/ trainees laugh like she does (she’s also a fantastic public speaker)! My mother, the renaissance woman, and she does it all while raising a family! Thank you, Ma, for being our rock! :)

Picturesque. This side of the vast Pacific Ocean. Even quick beach trips work wonders for my soul. #lifesabeach #realtreats #RealQuezon #summerPH

Happy happy birthday to my Ate! To my multi-talented (dermatologist, hair transplant specialist, artist, gifted interior designer and cook/baker) and super smart sister whose generous heart and many achievements always leave me in awe, thanks for your unwavering support and inspiration. Though you can be bossy at times like our second mother (haha), your caring ways more than make up for it.hehe Thanks for being the tie that binds our family together. You are the trailblazer among us siblings who paves the way for our dreams to be possible. May all your own wishes come true! Love you, Ate! :)
