I am doing this entry because yesterday deserves it! HAHA! For what felt like centuries, its our (at least for me) first time to once again live a day like 14 year old’s, carefree. Overlooking the Taal volcano while playing catch, laughing, teasing, running and dancing until we we were all breathless and drenching with sweat. AND HUNGRY. again.
I love how some things never change. When we visited our foster families from last summer’s community immersion, that warm genuine welcome has always been consistent. Months and years may pass but we will forever look back to that place where we found the true definition of compassion. We will keep coming back to that place where our hearts found second home.
After our canossa visit, we proceeded with our master plan of living the day young, wild and free because #YOLO right? HAHAHA! long drive, singing along with 90’s music playing on the radio, munching on junk foods (who you calories?), kinda “flight of ideas” conversations, taking “mala-turista photos”, basking in a clear weather, savoring sweet sweet pineapple, throwing the frisbee disk aimlessly, trying softball, birthday song gone ballad, filling our hyper- expandable stomachs, eyes glued on beyonce video playlist, planning on rorouni kenshin, music 21 and mercato while yawning and eyes drooping on our way back to manila and falling sound asleep as small raindrops started to silently touch the car windows. 8 21 2014 surely felt like sunshine, daisies, sea breeze, rainbow, skittles, and everything nice.
