The kids have been counting days now. My mother-in-law is coming to town for a visit this Friday. She will stay with us for two months. She’s just here eight months ago over Thanksgiving and Christmas. The thing is she promised our two kids to be here on their birthdays, she wants to live up to her promise so she’s gonna be here then. She also told them that she will come here every year. I talked to her on the phone yesterday, she kind of mention what she told Bob over 6 years ago that she would “NEVER” come here no matter what happen to us. Hmmm. That’s something because these visit would be her 4th time. Really when she made that promise the next day Bob got ill he almost died the very next day. I never thought that night after telling her that Bob was so sick that she would arrange her flight to come over here to see us. Even Bob who was very sick at that time can’t even believe his mom is coming. She got to GenSan 3 days after Bob got out of the hospital. She was gonna come sooner, but there were no available flight earlier than what she got.
She stayed with us in GenSan for one month. She attended Chris’ birthday party. She really saw how Chris was treated with love and care by my family. She told Bob and I that we did the right thing on moving here. She was crying while telling us. She can’t believe that my family really loves Chris so much. I’m really happy that her negative feelings towards living here really changed for the better. Even now she’s talking about living here when time that she needs care. I’m happy that Mom is open on living here later because that was really hard for Bob if his mom was sick in the States and we’re here. He has one brother in the States but they’re so busy with their life that we think they can’t take care of her. Nothing against them, it’s just that they have to work for a living. Very expensive there too.
She’s arriving on Friday here in Davao. I feel sorry for her, the kids ordered so much stuff that she’s bringing more suitcases than she should. I think she’s also sending balikbayan boxes through LBC. She let her friend ship it for her. Anyway, we are all excited seeing her again.
Mom welcome back. Nice to see you again. We love you.
