family gift

Being far from our family is not that easy but being far from them is the way for us to start building our own family too. Of course our father, mother, sisters and brothers are always be our first family no matter what happened.

There are several occasions that we cannot be with them but we tried our best to join them in our own simple way and try to think that whatever happiness our family doing, we are always part of it.

Christmas is one celebration that we cannot stop ourselves wishing to be with them on these particular days which there are lot of different activities and of course the gifts. Personally, we didn't have this luxury Christmas celebrations but we always made sure that we have time together, church and pray, went home have a small celebrations, and giving our very simple gifts but full of love on it.

Since I will not be with my family this coming Christmas, I’m planning to give them a simple gift that really comes from my heart. It will not be one by one to them but I am planning to give them a
Christmas Photo Cards which I will put our family pictures. The last picture with my father. We really treasured that moment and for sure it will be very memorable and meaningful to all of us because this picture that I will put was the last picture that we we’re all together and my father last picture with us.

I'm sure maging masaya ang pasko nila once they got your xmas gift for them.Basta pasko, we always think our relatives sa atin. Yan ang mabuting pinoy di makalimot sa pamilya kahit saan man tayo napadpad. Swerte ang family mo na, you are always there thinking of them esp. this xmas season.

Like you, I also think of my family back in Phils. I already sent my xmas gifts to all of them.And they already got it.
My 4 sisters,mom and my aunt n family all have shares. Ang dami grabe. But xmas only comes once a year so de bale. Sarap magpasaya diba?
