Here's a repost written by Hannah Almira Amora. The original post can be found at Let It Echo site. She wrote this on Nate's 3rd anniversary as an angel. This touched my heart. Thank you, Hannah.
What I appreciate most in the company that I work for is the culture. It does not have a sense of entitlement. I see the CEO and I call him on his first name. I see other companies and government agencies where employees call their bosses "Sir" or "Madam" or "Boss". There's nothing wrong with that, really, because it's a sign of respect.
I used to evaluate the year by the good and bad it brings. This year, I was true to my promise of just listing down things I'm grateful for every month.
I used to believe in this saying 100%. I realized now that it also has a flaw. This is applicable only to things that you, at the least, 80% like. If you take chances that you don't like, it might just be a reason to regret in the future. You'd "become the adult you don't' want to be". Therefore, this saying does not correlate to, "Take all the chances you can get".
Yesterday's visit to the cemetery wasn't as hard as I expected it to be. Maybe because 3 years had already passed since Nate left. People still ask what happened every time they pass us by. They still feel bad that such a young and beautiful angel left. I no longer feel bad. I probably got used to it too. Do you remember we had that World Heart Day Celebration at the Oupost last month? I was supposed to be the last sharer of story but we ran out of time.
