my unsung hero, my sister, shown here with the little man in our trip to Zambales a few years back

We all have someone to thank for their love and unwavering support in our lives, the wind beneath our wings, if you may. These people could be our parents, our husbands, our mentors, our siblings or our friend, who made it possible for us to achieve our dreams and realize our goals and help us get to where we are now.

One of my Unsung Hero is my dear sister, Isabel. She is my confidante, my friend, my therapist. My coffee, postcrossing, and movie buddy all rolled into one. She is always ready to listen to my endless tales, even when she has heard that story so many times before, and yes, she never fails to give straightforward remarks or side comments. She may not have agreed with a number of decisions I made in my life, but I know that I can count on her no matter what.

” A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.” ~Marion C. Garretty

I will always be grateful to my sister for the kind of love she showers my little man. She is more patient with him than I am at times. She has this way with children and she is Jared’s favorite playmate. My sister is always willing to look after my little man when I had to go somewhere, like run errands or attend blogging events. She does make life so much easier for me, allowing me the mobility, specially when I needed it. I know I can always count on her to love my son as his own.

But more importantly, my sister is a living reminder of my parents, their wonderful memories, and their unconditional love for us. I will always be grateful to have my sister as she reminds me so much of my parents, especially my Papa. She took after our father and inherited a number of his physical traits. And while my sister, and my siblings, are around, I know I will always feel my parents’ presence like a warm hug, like it is almost tangible. I will always feel like my Mama and Papa are still here with us through them.

I am excited to nominate her through the Husay At Malasakit app, I do hope she will like my surprise. I am sure she will love the cake since she is so fond of sweets!  :-))
