Family: My Most Treasured Heirlooms
My life in the middle of my 20’s is not as busy as a bee compared a few years ago. However, time is still my greatest foe before and until now. Work. Blog. Friends. Travel. Family. It’s just a routine and to be honest, I didn’t give my full attention on the later one. Only a few chances to spend time with my precious ones, though my life is not just on the go at the moment. I admit some circumstances forget me the importances of holding their arms each day, but my heart never does.
Journey to Simala Shrine, Sibonga
After a month of planning our trip to the place of peace and healing, we finally fulfilled it with a lot of things to remember. It was around 9:30 in the morning when we started our journey with a very heavy traffic due to the Ironman Triathlon event. It took about almost four hours and half of travel from Lapu-Lapu City to Sibonga (though two hours is the usual travel time). The good thing there, we had Sir Marco of MPTours Cebu Van Rental who patiently drove us safely to the said place. Because of that traffic, I would thank God for giving us a chance to talk, tease, laugh and share some thoughts as we reminisce our old memories. We were able to go back on what we missed a lot, the chance to talk to each other and the bond that would picture an ideal love.
We arrived at Simala around 2:00pm. We ate our late lunch and started to explore, took some pictures and prayed. The place mesmerized my whole family’s eyes because of its structural design and a fairytale-like landscape. We noticed that most of the people attended the mass and the others queued to the altar of the Mother Mary. Since we arrived late, we had no chance to attend the mass. We preferred to visit the Mother Marry and looked over to the relics of Saints and more… Then,
we stayed for a couple of hours and felt the merciful power of peace and healing. Thereafter, we went home with full of stories to tell. The blessing we received and the memories were worth to reminisce soon. God is so good. 🙂
