Praises to God for the joy of life!
Must we take only the good moments and not the bad ones? I think we can only say there are good moments in life because there are bad ones. So this is why I'm here.
This is Mamoosh. She's my grandmother! Her name is Leticia Royeras Atienza. She likes listening to the radio and talking about her childhood, growing up in Pandacan. Her cooking is also legendary!
Sadly, she got really sick recently. She had a heart attack last November, and soon after, her condition got worse. It keeps getting worse. The sparkle in her eyes and the motivation to continue on fade as the days go by. Now, her body is troubled by water. In Tagalog, we call it "manas" and her's is insanely severe. It saddens me that she is so uncomfortable right now.
But we as a family continue to show our love to her by doing the best we can and praying as much as we could. However, I also recognize that we can only do so much. This is why I started this in the hopes that you can help us if you can, out of the abundance of your heart! Proceeds will go to getting her better health care. It is so upsetting that our country does so little in terms of this, but any financial help will do for all the things we have to pay. It could really help us breathe a little freer.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much even if you just read this. Your prayers will also be graciously accepted as we can only really rely on the love of the Lord to sustain us. There are so many wonderful things in life that we are grateful for, and your care for us after this is one of them.
Again, may the Lord bless you and keep you! Thank you so much!
