The best gifts in the world are not in the material objects one can buy from the store, but in the memories we make with the people we love – Amanda Boyarshinov
After posting a review about Pollyanna and her glad game, I couldn’t find a substantial topic to pen about. Fortuitously, as I was organizing my files in my computer earlier this morning, the snapshots of the activities in my former school caught my attention. For a minute, I had that nostalgic mood. I was there. I was with them. I suddenly realized how time had really gone so fast. Same time two years ago, we were busy preparing for the “Buwan ng Wika” (Filipino Month) -a whole-month celebration that aims to promote the value of the Filipino language and culture. Teachers and students were busy preparing for the different contests and even designing their bulletin boards. I couldn’t forget our extended stays in the school for we had to finish making and putting up the “ banderitas”. I hoped that Mel, Klarence and Buen would read this for they were with me in those strenuous yet rewarding times.
On the other hand, I couldn’t forget our compassionate and determined administrators for always putting their best efforts to address our needs. Not only that, we were given plenty of chances to have our retreats, get-together parties and outings far from the demanding schedules of the city. There, we were able to strengthen our bonds as a family.
Well, those were just few of the countless endeavors that I have had experienced with my JCSLC family, yes, even until now I consider them as my family. As we were saying, “Once a Cardinal, Always a Cardinal”. I certainly feel that a part of me still lives there, and a part of them still lives in me.
