My nephew caught me online on Facebook last night, and he took the chance to tell me that I need to call my sister in the Philippines. So, I called right away. It was not a happy conversation. My mama is sick, and wants me to come home soon to visit her. She explained to me how it happened. I was crying silently while we were talking. All that was on my mind was hoping that I don't have to go as soon as this month because it will be difficult for me financially. Although I might can get there, but I need more than just getting there; and what I have saved is not enough to make my trip at least satisfactory.
I was talking to my mama, too. She didn't tell me anything that will make me worry about her. She kept saying that she is fine. One thing that added to her despair was that she haven't got any letter from me since December last year, and I have been sending her 3 letters in all since between December 5th to March 28th, and not one got there. Our correspondence is the one giving her joy between us. It's her only way of pouring to me how she feels and sharing to me what had happened; at the same time, she always want to know what has been happening to me over here in USA, too. Although they have internet in the house, but she still prefer the traditional way of long-distance communication which is through correspondence.
This day, I sent money to my sister for them to take mama to the doctor. I was trying to figure out how I can send my letter for my mama without failing again, and in the most possible quicker way. I asked Fed-Ex and DHL, both rates were a blow to me. I don't think it is reasonable. I have another option, and we will take care of it tomorrow. I believe that she really needs to have my letter for her very soon to delight her, and will possibly make her uplifted both physically and emotionally.
I am calling all the Lord's prayer warriors to please pray for the recovery of my mama. God hears. God heals. God rewards. Thank you very much.
