A picture of me and my ‘backup’, este, my family: mother, siblings and cousin outside the terminal building of Davao International Airport. Perhaps I was just as glad that my flight that time to Manila was delayed so I could ‘steal’ some time left to be spent with them before we separate ways. Every moment is precious and though I admit I had wasted some of the times, I am still thankful for the bond and for the things that make us happy, despite the lack.
