Who am I.
You can ask me to go out of the house, any day of the week, except Sundays. My friends got used to it already, and never planned a day out during Sundays. “Sus di naman pwede si Sam ng Sunday e. Diba nga? Fam Day?”
Typical extended families usually is : Grandparents lives most likely in different states, or aunts and uncles live in other countries like Europe and stuff, cousins work abroad. And family gathering only happens once a year, or a reunion prolly only during Christmas.
But as for my family (I call my extended family, just ‘family’.), doesn’t really work that way. Ever since I was five, (I can recall that far.), our tradition every Sunday is like a family reunion/celebration/party. Church in the morning, then after, all 22 (Yes, I repeat twenty-two. 11 Adults, Aunts, and Uncles including Grand, and 11 Kids/Cousin.) of the Clan crashes to our Lolo and Lola’s for lunch. After lunch, we gather around to have bible study or sharing readings from the bible. I grew up in a Born-Again Christian. (Yes, my family was in a small church, but after having issues, we separated.) Afterwards, we do whatever the heck we want togethah: pingpong (Tournament with Cash Prize), basketball, karaoke/videoke, wii, watch a movie, etc, or simply just share and gag the things that happened over the week. Then after that, we eat meryenda, very yummy yummy meryenda. And then dinner. That’s how my Sunday goes.
That is how tight we are.

We do everything together.

I am a lucky kid. And I know I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family. Haha. I may not have everything, but I have them, and they’re my everything. (I can actually imagine my cousins mocking me with “Awwww.”)
I currently have two drafts right now, and this, my friends, will be the end of my reblogging blog blog of shit for two years. I am so excited to write again! Wee.
Very well said. Hihi.
He’s not perfect, but he’s everything I want.
