Many people are familiar with the phrase, “You don’t know what you have until it is gone.” After today, I now firmly believe in this without a doubt. This morning my mom woke me up saying that there is something wrong with grandma. Hurry up and get up. We already called 911. Frantically I got out of bed, put my contacts on, and brushed my teeth. Once I finished I see my mom crying going up the stairs and she tells me grandma is gone. I couldn’t believe it until I ran out to my grandma’s house and saw for myself an ambulance and fire truck parked in the street. She really was gone. This was very unexpected because she was doing great the night before. I rushed to get my older sister and we showed her what had happened. My sisters, mom, and I all stood next to my grandma crying thinking about how much we had planned together. She was supposed to go to the Philippines on Monday for a month to visit everybody with my grandpa. My mom called my Aunt who went on a business trip in Phillidelphia and once she heard the knews, she became hysterical. She said she’ll be home as soon as possible. I couldn’t take it anymore so I went outside and called Patrick and Chris to tell them what happened. I also decided to go to school today because I know that that is what my grandma would have wanted since she stressed the importance of education. On the way to school my dad and I were talking about what could have caused this sudden occurrence. The paramedics said it could have done something with the medication she was on. I get to school and I see Cherie and Vy with Pat outside. I go to them but I just couldn’t hold it in any longer. I really needed to let it out. During school I kept thinking about what I didn’t do with my grandma that I should have done with her. I really wanted her to live long enough to see Ethan’s first birthday. I seriously regret not going to see her last night because I had a lot of homework to do. I am really worried about my grandpa because he just lost his wife and his best friend. It must be really tough on him. I now realize that death is a part of life and it can take anybody at any given time. I am thankfully relieved to hear that she had a peaceful death.
This really has let me have a more thankful outlook on life. So please, don’t take things for granted anymore cause I know I won’t. Reap life’s benefits and do what you can with your loved ones before it’s too late. There hasn’t been any confirmation on when the viewing is going to be or when the funeral is going to be. In the mean time I’ll do what I can to support my family. Rest In Paradise Grandma. I love you. ~ Ed
So a couple of us were bored so we decided to get together to play football today P: It went alright with Hien being all-time quarterback and with two receivers. Jw had the hardest time catching the ball like no joke. Nonetheless he finally scored once and caught it on a few lucky chances. Akhil kept touching me whenever he had to guard me and when Jw made a touchdown Akhil put him to the ground and started smacking his ass e.e Adithya made a few touchdowns himself so I’m proud of him. My favorite part was when I juked Jw so hard he almost fell. After playing two games we decided to go eat McDonald’s and Taco Bell. Back at my house Adithya took some pretty interesting pictures of Akhil and Jw but that’s a whole other story. After Hien, Adithya, and Akhil left Jw and I watched The Protector while Tokboxing with Cherie. Well I have to say that today was pretty fun. I’ll write more later but for now peace. ~ Ed
