Bonding With My Mother and Taking A Break

Last week, my sister and I have decided to spend the night at one of Nanay @ Balicaocao Highland Resortmy student’s house because we will vigil for the wake of his father. When we were about to leave the house, my sister and I was surprised that our mom texted her that she is coming over. It was really unusual for her to decide like that without even informing us ahead and to think that that’s already 4 ‘o clock in the afternoon and the travel time from Iloilo (from where she is staying) to Kabankalan City (from where we are) is more or less five hours.

Anyway, to make the long story short, we still pursued our plan for vigil and just informed our mother that mu husband, together with my daughter (who will stay behind), will fetch her.

We, my sister and I, went home the next day and that was Saturday. We hugged and kissed our mom because we really missed her and we haven’t seen her for more than 3 months (that’s a long time for us). Because I still have my classes on that day and we’re still sleepy from the vigil, we didn’t have enough time to chitchat and update each other because that’s what we used to do whenever we have a get-together.

The next day, Sunday, she informed us that she’s going home (Iloilo) because she has still unfinished transactions left behind. Then, to make her stay a little longer, even for just another day to spend quality time with her, I suddenly decided to bring her to Balicaocao Highland Resort, one of my favorite places here in Kabankalan City.

It’s her first time to visit the place and spend the night there so she was really happy and excited. I can see it in her eyes and like me, she also loves nature and the place is simply perfect for bonding and being one with nature, as well as, relax from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Ah, it’s really a perfect time for me to take a break, unwind, relax and bond with my family, too! And of course, not to forget to turn on my telephone answering service so that I won’t be disturbed by those unwanted calls.
