All Saints and Souls day..

What is All Saints and Souls day?

One of the national holidays where catholic people do celebrates….All saints and souls day…
During these days, we catholic went to church and cemetery to visit relatives who passed away…. bring candles, flowers and foods……its like having a reunion when relatives do see each other.

Today, we do visit my mother’s grave in the cemetery, been doing it for 21 years now….
we do see each other, my mothers sisters, my cousins, nieces and nephews…..we bring foods to share, its like having a picnic in the cemetery… and of course we offer a prayer for mother…
we are having fun, talking of the past…present life…
just felt sad we are not able to locate my older brother and my younger brother’s grave…but still we do remember them and offer a prayer and candles on the big cross….

We’ve been in the cemetery the whole day…..sitting, talking and eating….spending time with mother……we know she is watching us….happy watching us beside her grave…
even though the weather is very hot…..we stayed there for hours…just to spend with mother….only happens once a year….so spending it with her is a good memories that we treasure because she passed away when i was very young….and also, i tell my mother i have found the man of my dreams…..and tell her, u will meet him someday when he comes visit me…i will bring him to her…how i wish mother could meet him personally….

After hours of been there, we are tired and decided to go home at 5 in the afternoon….saying goodbye to mother and we missed her….we’ll see her on her birthday again…..
