One of the most gratifying aspect of blogging is that you get to meet different kinds of people online; when you both have the chance and time to see each other in person, before you both know it, the natural element that defines friendship is there.
This is what has happened between me and Tita Freda a few years ago. Quintessential, an almost perfect embodiment of everything, a wife, a mother, a homemaker, a Filipina for other Filipinas, a Senior in blogging, a writer and health practitioner of her time. That is how I see Tita Freda.
Whenever I need a brief or week long respite from my workload and other worries, it was quite easy for her to grant my request to seek shelter into her loving arms. She has become my second mother here in Kuwait. She has become one of the dependable reasons for me to continue my advocacy and my writing.
“Tita Freda, Happy, Happy Birthday po sa inyo at hiling ko lang po sa Poong Maykapal, good health and happiness always po sa inyo. Maraming, maraming salamat po sa lahat lahat.”
