Ganito magmahal. :)
13 May 2012 (oo, more than 3 years ago na, pero ang sarap pa ring balik-balikan)
I went home a little late dahil napahaba ang homily ni Father Mark. Pero gaya nga ng sinabi niya, sinadya niyang pahabain ang homily dahil ang tunay raw na nagmamahal, hindi binibilang ang oras na inilalagi niya sa piling ng kanyang minamahal. :) Thus, if one truly loves the Lord, he won't mind spending more than an hour with Him in His very temple, the church. :) So there, around 10pm na ako nakauwi. And it was only then when I had dinner. I never liked dinuguan. But tonight, I feasted on dinuguan for dinner. Guess who cooked it. Not Mama (she's a very good cook, though) but Papa. :)
And this is the story behind the dinuguan.
Yesterday, nagpaparinig daw si Mama about Mothers' Day. She was asking Papa to treat us sa Mang Inasal or Chicboy. Sabi niya ang tagal na raw niyang hindi nakakain ng dinuguan at puto. Napa-compute naman si Papa kung magkano ang magagastos namin sa Chicboy o sa Mang Inasal sakaling mag-order nga kami ng dinuguan at puto. So Mama was expecting that he will treat us for dinner.
This morning, Papa woke up earlier than usual (he wakes up late during Sundays because it's his rest day) and went to the market to buy the ingredients for dinuguan. He didn't bring us to Mang Inasal or Chicboy, but he made this day even more special for Mama because he cooked dinuguan for her! :) And I find it really sweet and cool. Love doesn't need to be expensive. :) And it's better expressed with concrete actions done with effort and passion. Sabi nga, it's the thought that counts. :)
At sa totoo lang, mas napapa-wow pa rin talaga ako sa mga bagay na pinaghirapan at pinaglaanan ng panahon. ♥
Random question: Lagi na lang ako ang nagluluto. Kailan kayo ako ipagluluto? :)
|Ito talaga ang isa sa pinaka-nami-miss ko: ang pagkain nang sama-sama. ♥|
God, I miss my family so much. Please take care of them always. :)
