Communication is a MUST!

I mentioned in my blog that March wasn't a good month for me. Lots of not-so-good events happened last month with me and my family back home.  I was just got done  paying for all my youngest sister's tuition, graduation fees, and other   miscellaneous expenses so my budget was totally drained.  Then  a week after that, a friend of mine texted me and said that my sister was in the hospital and in need of money.  I was dismayed because it isn't easy to just get that kind of amount  considering that I just spent the last amount I have allocated for her.  But what can you do, we are the only one they can depend on  on emergencies.  I am sacrificing our budget for this month  just so I could send money back home to pay for her hospital bill.  I still have to save for her review, sigh.  

Hubby and I are willing to help my family back home the best we can. All I want in return is a constant communication from my sister but she isn't good with that part which sometimes irritates me. I understand that she was busy but just ten minutes of her time allocated to chat with me would mean a lot. If she have time for a boyfriend, she would certainly have time to talk to me for ten minutes. I wanted to give her a party for her graduation but due to lack of communication, I did not. Besides I still have to pay for her review before she can take the LET exam so that is more important than a party.  She understand  the situation and she doesn't mind.  She finally talked to me after I told her what I felt.  

Mae, I hope that you would exercise the sense of responsibility.  Communicating with me and honesty is all I ask.


  1. Really, I can relate what you felt about your sister. I worked as an OFW before and I felt that too. Sometimes, I can say that all they wanted was money to support them. That's normal, but constant communications and love must be adhered to all the time.

  2. I understand your plight but I'm sure your sister is very grateful.

  3. You are such a great sister! I'm sure she appreciates what you do. When you're young and have a bf that's kinda your life at the moment. She loves you though!

  4. My boyfriend had this kind of issue with his family too - but in time, things are coping up - communication is a must and its very important especially those who are away from the country.

  5. I do feel irritated sometimes in sending money at home too especially when they don't communicate to me properly. It's like they only message me for emergency like I'm a bank. It hurts. I keep explaining to them though that not all needs they have there we can meet. Simple news like they are healthy, life is good there would sometimes cure pains.


Thank you for visiting and for taking time to jot down something for me to read. God Bless!

My due was May 5th but I gave birth to this amazing baby a week early.  He reminds me of my father.  He was born in April and I’m thinking ...
