2010: the year my life changed forever

December 31, 2010

Finally, this terrible year is about to end.

Earlier this year, Mama already joined God in heaven. And what happened in a snap of a finger drastically changed my life. I was  just once living a carefree life. And in  a blink of an eye, I was this person who has tons of obligations, trying to be strong for the family while coping with the unexpected loss of a loved one. All of these and more at the relatively tender age of 23.

When I was younger, I thought I’ll be mad at God when He takes a loved one away from us. I can’t even entertain the thought of losing one of them. But when it happened last January, I was surprised with the way I took and handled it. With the help of my family, relatives, and friends, I understood and believed on the God-has-better-plans advice others usually give.

During the wake of my mom, a family friend told me that what we just see is anything that’s happening from point A to B. God sees beyond that. He knows what will happen from point A to C and if we reach point C, we will end up being hurt more. And so He just lets us reach until point B only. Indeed, God knows better. And honestly, I was surprised to find myself trusting God even more. I know my mom is already happy up there. And down here, we will surely get better in time.

Finally, this terrible year is about to end. 2010 would surely go down as that year when everything in me changed forever.
