Day 49: Almost there but not quite

A huge roadblock came to the family just recently. My mom’s brother died unexpectedly in his home. He was living alone. The saddest part of it was that he had symptoms of Covid-19. We never had the opportunity to see him for the last time because he was cremated the same day. It was a huge reality check for us on how scary this pandemic is. It has now impacted our family and we’ve lost a family member to the disease. It is never easy losing a family member especially now that we’re in the middle of a pandemic. It’s sad that we will never know what happened to my Tito. As a family, we are all praying for his eternal repose.

Our way of living has changed. It has changed in ways we could not imagine possible. However, it should not change our view of life. Life is meant to be lived and we should make sure that we take care of ourselves and our families. We are all in this together.

Yes, i said We not Me. Don’t be selfish.
