The God-send, the angel of my life and my family


She is my best of all best friends; not by choice but by God's will.

Do you have anything like that in your life?

If yes, then you are blessed, a beloved child of the Universe.

If none, then you have not yet lived life to the fullest; you had missed one half of it.

Angels in our midst

Angel in our lives

We started being friends in 1995 when I started working in Systems Plus Computer College (now Systems Plus College Foundation) in Balibago, Angeles City Philippines.

My daughter was in second year high school at that time. My daughter now is married, also a teacher in SPCC, and having two children. We have been friends even before I became a grandma. Now I am a grandma of five grandchildren, and my eldest granddaughter is in the university taking up Architecture.

And Ma'am Veron and I still stick together.


My daughter-in-law and my three grandchildren when the children were very small. Ma'am Veron had helped my daughter-in-law in a lot of ways.

It's God's will

When my marriage broke up in 1994, my son tend to blame me and became rebellious so he married at age 18; it was a show of revenge to me. In 1997, he came to join me with his young family. In 2000, his twins boy and girl were born. It was a very difficult time for me; Ma'am Veron was the angel to help my son's family, both psychologically, emotionally and at times financially; I was so embarrassed when my daughter-in-law would go to her home and offered to work for pay because she had nothing to feed her small children; and worst, she would borrow money from Ma'am Veron without my knowledge.

Ma'am Veron is not just my personal best friend but an angel too fr my children.

Now my son is already a successful businessman and his children are enjoying their financial success. They live far from us. My eldest granddaughter is in Far Eastern University in Manila, taking up Architecture. My twins grandchildren are now graduating elementary in a very prestigious and expensive Ateneo de Cebu, in Cebu City.

Loyalty

Even in family affairs such as birthdays and graduations in my family, Ma'am Veron

was there.

In every turn of our lives within these 17 years, Ma'am Veron and I know and most often witness to each other's affairs. In the job, in the family, in all the affairs, in the education of my daughter; she always did what she can.

Many a times, Ma'am Veron would tell everyone that I am not her best friend anymore because of my being eccentric; I do a lot of things contrary to what our peers expect everyone to do but God's will always prevail.

Ma'am Veron, my preggy daughter and I; it was on SPCC Acquaintance Party in 2011. I was just a visitor because I left my job after my marriage to Greg.

What are friends for?

I believe that a best friend is a God-send into our lives. She is an angel in the form of human to lighten our loads when life is too much to bear.

What have I done for Ma'am Veron?

Ma'am Veron will be the one to tell, who I am in her life.

I just know that both of us are blessed with each others' presence in each of our lives, over the years...yes, friendship over the years.

When I was still working and Ma'am Veron was the Administrator; this was taken during the City's PANCHAM (Business Chamber) Seminar workshop that we both attended.

Thank you for reading my hub.

Friendship develops into something that becomes part of our existence over the years.

God Bless. Try to keep your best friend and the years will show how valuable he/she becomes in your life.

God share my children with you, it's not my own doing. It's God's will that you are part of my family...you had done a mission; you harvest the fruit of your labor where only God can know how...may not be directly from them but in a much better way. God Bless us all.

Thank you reeltaulk,

You put everything perfectly in your mouth concerning friendship. You are right to say that true friendship, especially over so many years, is a rarity...Ma'am Veron and I never expected that we will be friends this long...I often leave my job for two years, one year but our friendship remains...nobody in our school who have the kind of friendship Ma'am Veron and I have. We had stood the test of time.

As mother nature places everything where it needs to be so are friends. True friends are a rarity, "friends" are purposely put in your life to fill voids as well as to help you flourish. Those that have experienced true friendships have experienced the "out of no where friendship". This person usually enters your life out of no where, the meeting is usually "random" and it is as though you have known them forever. Good for you! Voted Up!
