In her Eyes

The past months have been crazy rough for Mama... and to me as well. There's something about family that really just hits the core of you no matter how tough you try to be. Sometimes, it's just sad. Heartbreaking, more of. And though there were times, my faith gets too close to wavering, the grace of the Almighty never fails.

You know you've grown up, when you look at your parents and see them as individuals-- flawed and vulnerable-- not as law-enforcing perfect creatures we're supposed to be like when we grow up. I see bits and pieces of myself in them the same way I see bits and pieces of who they are in me. Some of which, I like. Some of which, I don't. But I love them just the same.

We've had more heart to heart talks for the past 4 months than we've had for my 20 plus years of existence. And it has helped me see the world in her eyes. Ironic how that's equally nice and melancholy at the same time.

I know the One above has bigger plans for the both of us. I know it's not gonna be an easy-breezy walk in the park. I bet there will still be difficult days (Although Lord, I hope we've conquered the worst ones. Please. *wink*) But I will be still for I know that You are GOD.
