We have returned home from our visit to my mother's home province for All Saints Day. I'm happy to have visited my relatives again even though we all felt tired from the trip. We visited homes, bought food, played mahjong, walked in rice fields, and prayed in the cemetery.
In Filipino, we usually hear the saying, "Habang may buhay, may pag-asa." For some people, it has become, "Habang may pag-asa, may buhay." That's why we return home, for home is always hope.
