Last Christmas, the family is expecting our youngest brother to be home and celebrate with us. However he just sent message to my father’s phone telling him that he cannot be with us. We tried to call his phone but he will not answer. The father asked him where is he, he will just say he is fine and wherever he is right now is his decision. The whole family is sad because it was the first Christmas that we are not complete. Even though we are sad, still we celebrate Christmas with smiles on our faces. It was one memorable Christmas for the family.
December 31, 2011, we attended a mass with the kids. We did not expect that when we got home our younger brother arrived. My wish was granted because we are complete. The New Year celebration was complete because the brother is home. The anger of my father has gone he moment he saw his youngest son. Makes me wondering, how can the brother hurt our feelings especially our father. The love of the father controls his anger and forgives the son. We forgive and forget. Apparently, the brother still decided to leave the house and live at his girlfriend’s house. We are sad but we have to accept it for it is his decision. The most important thing is that we are complete in celebrating the New Year and we are able to forgive and forget.
