Don’t you wish all your days are well-spent? If that is the case, then maybe there are more reasons to be happy about. A well-spent day for me is one where I am not only productive but also doing meaningful things for myself and for the people I love. Or just a plain day spent doing crazy things with the people dearest to me.
Busy or not, the day should be well-spent in such a way that the overall experience becomes so enriching and unforgettable at the same time. Unfortunately, it’s not every day that we get to experience a well-spent day. There are days that are forgettable and there are days that are regrettable.

She had been bed-ridden for months before breathing her last yesterday afternoon at the confines of her house in Muñoz City, Nueva Ecija. We are grieving at the moment because this happened to be a double blow in our clan.
Death is inevitable. You never know when it will strike you or someone you love. Sabi nga nila, una-una lang yan. Death may come fast and leave faster, but the pain and sorrow it brings can last years and for some, even a lifetime. I feel for the family of my Tita Bebe. I can’t imagine losing my parents myself. Though I don’t have too many memories of my aunt, her passing still saddens me.
