Last Monday, Vine, Marian and I went on a dinner. Lumuwas kasi si Vine sa Manila kasama si mama niya. Actually, week prior to that, she was also here but everyone’s schedule did not agree. Then for some reason, they had to go back here in Manila. Sakto naman pwede si Marsh after work while mister’s work from home kaya pwede rin ako. So pinush na ang na-cancel na catch up.
5pm, sa Centris was our agreed schedule.Pero dumating kami at nakumpleto past 6pm na. Original plan was in House of Lasagna but it’s already closed so we ended up in Uncle Cheffy. Good thing there was the Christmas display kaya nalibang ang mga bagets.
Last time we saw each other was February when Vine announced her pregnancy. Secret pa yun non. She gave birth on July to a bouncing baby boy they named Zeke who is now over 4 months. Nung binyag ni Zeke, hindi kasi kami naka-biyahe pa-Baguio kaya ngayon lang na-meet ni baby boy ang magaganda niyang Ninangs.
Vine’s going back to work by December. She teaches Senior High sa SLU-Baguio. Ako naman is due on March kaya for sure, it will take long before I can go out again unless they’ll be the one to visit me at home. Marsh being sent to places for training. She works on a government agency under trainings. I am due to give birth on March and will surely not be able to go out until late next year. So definitely, we’ll all have busy schedules after this.
This is just one of the friendship I treasure because we all know by heart that it is true. Actually, we’re even more than friends but sisters from another parents. Sa totoo lang, hindi ko din inexpect that our friendship will last beyond our TV5 days. Akala ko kasi noon kapag may kanya-kanya na kaming buhay, it’s over. But no. And no matter how busy we get, kahit na hindi kami laging magkakausap, alam namin na nandiyan lang ang bawat isa kahit san man kami dalhin ng mga personal naming buhay.
These two will always be special. I am forever grateful for the sisterhood we have. Salamat sa TV5 for paving the way for us to meet. Sana, in the future, our kids will be friends, too.
No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other’s worth.
