I wrote this introduction on Facebook for a collage and some videos of our special day on Monday, August 10th.
Today was such a very special day for us. We had visitors for a couple of hours this morning. Dad & Mom were the Ninong and Ninang (Godparents) for the wedding of Rev. Jaime & Mrs. Polly Prieto. (That makes them part of our family, and us part of theirs!)
Over the years we have been able to connect here in the U.S. several times, and of course through FB & letters…. but today we had the privilege of sharing hugs, music, prayers, and just wonderful fellowship. I taped 8 songs, plus more which I shall share some of that perhaps tomorrow.
For now, here are some pictures I got of my Kuya Jaime and Ate Polly (mga kapatid — siblings – sign of respect: Kuya = older brother, and Ate = older sister). How we love our precious Prieto’s! They are such godly servants of God, and have begun many churches here in the U.S. & in Philippines, shared their musical gifts, written books, and so much more. Maraming salamat po (Thank you very much!) You made our day!!
The Prieto’s sang (while Ate Polly played her accordion) several songs both in English and in Tagalog. We even sang along on a few! Here is one of the songs they sang together. You can see both my husband and my mother enjoying the singing, as I panned the camera across the room.
==== Other Exciting Days ====
For those who have followed me (back on Xanga) over the years since Dec. 2004 or after, you know how I love to share about my three grandchildren. That baby back in 2004 is now a 5th grader! Here is her first day of school, her brother’s (& best friend’s) first day of preschool, and 2 year old sister just getting into the picture, too!
Well, I’m ending this post with the collage I put up tonight, and then I’m heading off to bed. Goodnight Friends.
