Our Holy Week


Since hubby works in a BPO industry, they still have work even during the Holy Week. So, I was left with the kids the whole of the Lenten season. We were able to participate in the Palm Sunday mass. I had them watch Joseph: King of Dreams. We joined the procession last Good Friday. It was their first time and I was glad that we brought Roey's stroller that time. We woke up before 5am last Easter Sunday to join what we Filipinos call the "Salubong".

I regret that I wasn't able to bring my camera during the Easter Sunday early dawn procession. As a parent, I'd like my kids to realize in the early part of their lives that HE suffered for each one of us. So, by simply getting up very early to join the procession, going to church and through praying, we are already giving HIM "thank yous". My elder daughter can understand it already and I thank my Mom for helping me out on that.

We normally go out and join Easter egg-hunting at the malls for the past few years but skipped that activity this year. I wasn't feeling well since Saturday after a minor home clean up. I'll just upload photos of my bunny princesses next time. Anyhow, I had them enjoy making bubbles instead.

How about you, how was your Holy Week?

Our celebration and observance of Holy week there in Pinas is different here in the US. I missed the Friday procession, the station of the cross around the city, yung marinig ko yung kantahan "pasyon" sa neighbor, tapos yung pagpunta sa simbahan palagi, and also yung bigayan nang biko or binignit ^_^ Thanks sa pics parang andoon na rin ako hehe. Happy Monday!
