Opting not to open my blog was the sacrifice I chose to do this lent [My Man would not allow me to fast on food because he is some sort of hypochondriac towards me]. My sister piapot ditched her phone while Kulot tried so hard to not watch Pokemon. My cousins, Kuya Alex MD, spends his lent break not on a break but on duty in the far flung area of Mindoro, while his brother, Engr. Kuya Nap, spent his day off on Good Friday not on day off but in the network office to fix things for all our cellular phones.
After a few days of sacrifice, I learned that it is very hard to give up things that I wanted to do – the normal routine for me was to check my blog upon waking up and to not be able to do that all of a sudden took a lot of mind bending.
The good thing was that it did not kill me so Happy Easter everybody!
Easter is one of my most favorite holidays not really because of the eggs but because of what it means to my faith. The idea that there will always be a resurrection – from all things dark – gives me peace and courage… especially that I am coming out of a loss of my beloved Cook, who is now having his ears happily scratched by the Alpha Cat up in the sky. Just knowing that Cook is in a better place now lightens my chest, because I can sure tell you that it hurt like hell.
But I am happy now. I think I am starting to accept the reality of things that Cook has now moved on, though without me, I am sure he is a very happy cat with lots of tuna to eat there. I guess sometimes you really need to let go. Being the fighter that I am, letting go is never a part of my vocabulary, but now I understand that a good fighter must now when to fight but a better fighter must know when to let go.
I am dead sure Cook is having a new life up there, one that is better than we could both imagine.
Peace to you all. Have a blessed Easter.
