Our Holy Week this year was spent with family. The hubby and I, along with Mame and my sister Jodie, did Visita Iglesia in Cavite on Maundy Thursday. We started with our neighborhood church in Bacoor (first) and for our final church (seventh), this new church discovery of ours in Tagaytay known locally as the Peach Sisters Chapel. We then met up with the rest of the family at Water Camp in Kawit for swimming. We had loads of fun and rest which are what we look forward to every year whenever the Holy Week season is here.
We had a simple but fun and meaningful Holy Week break. The hubby and I were joined by my two siblings Jodie and Son at home in Bacoor. But we went to Cavite only after we finished the traditional Visita Iglesia in Manila. We visited a total of seven churches, as usual.
On Good Friday, we just stayed at home the entire morning and early afternoon. I baked a chocolate cake out of boredom and it turned out so good. We ate it after every meal until the very last slice was eaten up.
The Lenten Season is fast-approaching. And I so look forward to the long holidays it brings. I’m not a very religious person but I always see Lent as a time to slow down, meditate and connect with God. I also think that this is the perfect opportunity to reflect on my life and how I could make it more meaningful not only for myself but for the people around me.
This Holy Week, I plan to relax and do uncomplicated things. I want to get as much rest as I could get. I want to spend as much time as I could with my family. I also want the same for my husband. That’s why we have decided to spend time equally between his family and mine. Fair deal, ayt?
