I am a granddaughter.

Lolo Doling

How time flies. You will be 82 years old in September. Just the thought of that makes me want to catch my breath. Where was I when you were ten years younger?

Was I too busy with my work, with my family and with myself that I somehow forgot how utterly wonderful it is to sit on your lap and listen to your many stories?

When I was young, you told me that the sky was only 12 feet high until it got angry at people who tried to poke it with big wooden sticks. I still believe it. And I’m also going to tell my son that story until it becomes the truth. Hehehe.

I love you Lo. I wish I didn’t grow up so you wouldn’t grow old. I wish you’d forever be the forgetful yet brilliant mind that I’ve always looked up to. I wish time was a commodity with a price tag. But that’s not possible right?

Knowing that, I will be reserving a plane ticket so I could go home before the year ends. I am looking forward to that big smile on your face whenever I give your toes a nice pedicure.

    Aww.. sarap naman. I never had any memory of my grandparents. sabi nila, I used to sit on my grandfather’s lap (mother side). sa father side kase, maaga sila namatay. ayun. ang sweet naman. gusto ko rin ganyan ma-feel ng anak ko sa mga lola/lolo nya, kaso di pa sila close eh. aheks.

    Wow! So thoughtful. That makes me miss my grandfather. Among his grandchildren, we (my siblings) were the closest to him.. I remember he always handed me ten pesos every payperiod (lolz).

    May God bless his soul.
