Happy Birthday Kuya...

Dearest Kuya,

Happy happy birthday! It has been a very long time since we talked and I really miss you very, very much. You've missed a lot of milestones in my life....passing the bar and becoming a lawyer, getting married and being pregnant right now. I'm so excited to tell you that you're going to have a nephew!!! I miss the way you torture me every morning by tickling me when I was still a little kid. I'm pretty sure you're going to do the same to your nephew and he is going to adore you. I just hope that you're having a grand celebration there in heaven. Don't worry, I'll tell my son stories about you so that he'll still get to know his Tito. I love you very much...

Love,
Your Little Sister


In memory of my Kuya
(17 January 1963-20 August 1993)

I'm sorry to hear about your Kuya, but I am sure he's looking down upon you down from Heaven; smiling at your achievements.

(:

Kumusta ka?

I hope everything is well for you!

Hey Ladybug, how are you? Happy New Year! So many things I don't know about you. I hope you and the baby are well. That's a beautiful letter to your Kuya.

Hey Ladybug! How's everything going? Hope all's well with you and the little one inside.

I'm sure your kuya would have been proud of your achievements. Take care, ok? :-)

PS: Hope to see you blogging again, soon.

ey hi ladybug!! wow... so cute letter! im sure your kuya now is so proud of you. and he's such a sweet kuya. when you said, "I miss the way you torture me every morning by tickling me when I was still a little kid," i could almost hear you laugh and can really picture-out the scene. awwwhhh... so nice! just feel sad that he had to say good-bye so soon. and oh! he has the same bday as my sister. Ü

hope the lil one's okay! and i hope you too. ;)

ladybug, such a beautiful letter to your kuya. I'm sure he is excited of the coming of his nephew and from afar he could touch his face and see him growing up.

My own kuya passed away last year, and has not seen his first grandson who was born two months later, but I'm sure he's is up there looking and giving his usual grin, because he is his split image. A child to carry on. And to your kuya and mine, we celebrate...

That is such a very sweet and touching letter to your kuya who died so young. So you're expecting a little boy pala ha. Hope everything's going well. Take care.

Lazarus said...

Very touching! You and your kuya must be very close.

that's inspiring... perished loveones will never really leave us. As long as we knew that we kept them where they mattered most-- in our heart.

funny how you never lost anything if you keep them there.

Lani said...

If he's alive, he surely is so proud of you.

How are you? Long time no blog like me, hehehe. Take care.

Trust is going well with you. Miss you!

I know how it feels like; to this day, I terribly miss my older brother Taba. :(

Hi Ladybug! That's a nice tribute for someone you love.

When are you due? Take care!

Andrew said...

I agree, that's a nice tribute.

ladybug said...

kyels> Thanks for the nice comment. I'm doing fine. Been extremely quiet for a month now. :-)

ladybug said...

toe> Hey, long time no hear na nga eh. Sorry, haven't updated my blog for some time. Promise, magsisipag na ako. :-)

ladybug said...

snglguy> I'm doing fine, and so is the little one according to the ultrasound. Thanks! Hope to blog more often soon. Been really feeling the morning sickness lately, inspite of the fact that I'm already on the third trimester. Shucks! But it's all worth it. :-)

ladybug said...

meilly> Hi there! How're you doing? Hope you still enjoy playing badminton. And I hope you're ok. Miss you. :-)

ladybug said...

vic> That's so sad. But I'm sure his memory will live on with the birth of his grandchild. I know that my kuya and yours are both at peace with the Lord right now. Thanks for the nice comment. :-)

ladybug said...

niceheart> Thanks. We're expecting a boy nga. I hope I get to raise him as well, or even half as well, as you raised your kids. Really got nice parenting advice from you. Will definitely need your advice when my kid starts to ask questions about where he came from....hehe. :-)

ladybug said...

lazarus> We really got along well, although not as close as other siblings mainly because of the 11-year age gap between us. But during the latter part of his life we got to spend a lot of time with each other. I will truly cherish those memories forever.

ladybug said...

rey> I agree...I keep his memory in my heart forever. Thanks! :-)

ladybug said...

lani> Thanks! Haha...pareho ba tayo? Wish ko lang magsipag sa pagblo-blog. Unfortunately, hirap kasi mag-connect sa blogger tapos tumitindi pa ang morning sickness ko ngayong 3rd trimester. Oh well, hope to see you around. :-)

ladybug said...

eric> How're you doing? One thing about not blogging is also missing all of my blog friends' entries. I hope to be more active soon. Thanks for dropping by!

ladybug said...

ipanema> Thanks for dropping by! GRabe, antagal ko na talagang ni nagblo-blog. Miss all of you already. I'm due on the first week of May. I'm really excited, but kinda dreading the pain also. :-)

ladybug said...

andrew> Thanks for dropping by. :-) Hope everything's ok.

ladybug said...

jerome> I miss you! How are you doing? Musta na si Papa? As I've mentioned in a previous message, due ako on the first week of May. Baka maging ka-berdi ko pa. :-) Hope to see more of you soon!
