Good Friday

And because sleep has failed me once more, I resort to writing.

It's such a sad thing when you have to work on holidays. I was originally planning to go home this holy week but because of my crazy schedule, I had to stay and go to work. Booo :( And the only consolation that I have? Double pay. Now I'm not so sure if that even compensates the time I'm spending away from my family. 

I also realized that when you are away from home, holidays or special events like this are spent so differently. My mom was not there to constantly remind me to fast when I sometimes forget and dad was not there to badger me off to go to mass and do stations of the cross. And I badly miss spending the days off with my family. It's a good thing I have friends who shared the same sentiments with me.

The pictures below were taken a while ago when we went to Sto. Nino Church after work to say a prayer or two. Although it was not my first time there, my friends really wanted to take a picture of me inside the historical church so we had a mini picture taking after we offered our prayers. Can you recognize those tired faces? haha

Donnel and me.

Marf, me, Maco and Rosalie.

Of course I have to have a solo pic.

 I have to admit I have not been very faithful when it comes to following the Lenten practices this year. But I have not forgotten the real reason why we are celebrating this very special holiday and the sacrifices that our Father has done for us. I will forever be thankful for the life that he gave us in exchange of his own.

I hope you all have a peaceful and reflective Holy Week everyone. :)
