It made me cry...



 I just want to share these two videos that made me cry because somehow I can relate to this story. The first video is the amazing project of coke for OFW. I was six years old when my mom went to Norway and that was 23 years ago, we’ve been celebrating Christmas without her for 22 years and 6 years ago was the first time that she celebrated Christmas with us.  



The second video is about thirteen months old little Dax who was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia. He was given two bone marrow transplants as a part of emergency treatment; one from each of his parents. The doctors then told his parents that Dax would most likely not make it to see Christmas. Well, this song is inspired by the true story of the love of a family, and the coming together of an entire community to make sure that this little boy could have one last Christmas.

Just last year my sister in law did not make it to see Christmas (9 days before Christmas) but was able to spend her Christmas in Heaven.



22 more days before Christmas, some are excited and happy because it is the time of the year when you have your family reunion but some are sad because it brings back sad memories. Whatever we feel for this holiday let us remember that Jesus is the reason for this season and it is not our day but His day.

  4. When I'm away from my son for the weekend nga lang, I end up missing him so much! What more those who are away form their families for months and even years :(

  5. I don't have an OFW relative (immediate family) or friend, but I felt the pain and the joy of the first video. Napapabilib ako lalo ng Coke for how well they're doing with their Happiness branding and campaign. Ang galing!

    The 2nd video made me cry even more. Ang bad mo ate michi for making us cry! The video about Dax was so touching and made me realize that we have to live in the spirits of Christmas every day.
