This post made me cry!

Hi friends and loved ones! I am writing this post with a heavy heart because I know that it will make me cry and remember our past that made our hearts break and the situation right now is really heartbreaking.

But still, I want to write this post dedicated to my younger sister who was diagnosed with cancer last year becuase it is her birthday today. I hope that this day will bring joy into her heart inspite that she is still very weak after a big operation.

Life has not been kind to us. We grow up apart from each other because of un-avoidable circumstansces. Separation that affects our lives and brought many difficulties and heartaches. But still God has been good to us and lifted us up from nothing to something.

My sister is blessed with many talents. She sings like an angel and draws, and take amazing pictures.
She has a very beautiful smile that captures lots of  attention.

Her work
Her sickness brought us more closer to each other and we are chatting almost non stop in every moment of the day or night. Lida is her name and she made a chat group which consists of us six sisters. Two lives in the Philippines, one is working in Saudi Arabia and we are three here in Norway. She called our group: Rafael's angels. Our father's name was Rafael.

In many years, Lida supported less forrtunate kids in the Philippines with education, school materials and food.
Her heart burns for them.

Here isa picture together with them last year.

Until now we couldn't just understand why she got cancer in so young age....but we are still believing God for miracle,

This picture was taken during her visit last summer where we picked strawberries in our older sister's farm.

Although she is sick, she looks so alive and enyoying every minute of her life.

She too is blessed with beautiful children and grandchildren.

When we visited her in the hospital last month, she was very happy. Still sings and plays guitar. An inspiration to the other patients.

I just want to greet you my dearest sister a very happy birthday. We love you and will always will.

"Live your life to the fullest"
