When September Ends: Timeless Memories

Here comes September: the beginning of the Merriest season in the Philippines. The start of the Autumn season or Fall in the West. The beginning of the many wonderful things and the end of not so glorious days.

So many memorable events happened this month. Another year added to my life: the beginning of a great life cycle.    Birthday Special: Love and Gratitude are about blessings received and wishes that came true and now making things work out of the blue.

What makes September special is the birthday of the Mother of Christ. It was on September 8 when the universe conspired for what my heart desires. I prayed to our Divine Mother and so I have made this day special. She listens and prays for us all.   Heart's Desire: An Answered Prayer is a testimony of the intercession of the Holy Mother; the Blessed Mary. This day will forever be memorable and to be celebrated.

Before September ends, we have  Birthday Special: Celebrating our Mother's 66th Birthday on the 24th. A simple family gathering over dinner made it special and meaningful.

What else made this September memorable is the soulful conversation with Reverend Father Jeffrey Estrella while having lunch at the beachfront restaurant on September 17. He is the Parish Priest of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Lomboy Parish. 

We also had a family weekend getaway at the beach together with my grandfather on Sunday, September 22nd. That was like extended summer fun. The waves on the shore are so calming and the view of the sea on the hilltop is breathtaking.

On the road to the summit, we visited our favorite place, Bato Arobo on September 23rd. The natural scenery of the mountains is pure bliss. This is where we spend time with natural wonders while taking a deep breath, be in a meditative state, and enjoying the serenity. 

When September ends, my heart is filled with love because I have the best people in my life who are there to protect, care, and support me for whatever things I do and to whoever I may become. September will always be memorable and the joy it brings is so meaningful.
