The Visit
Sunday, July 22, 2007
My MIL visited us this week end. It was one of those rare visits which only happens once or twice a year. This is because they live far away from our place... in Tabugoc, Pandan, Catanduanes. It used to be together with my FIL. But he was in their province this time because my MIL had to stay in Manila long enough to finish her scheduled check ups with her doctor.

It was a short visit but very meaningful. They only stayed in our place overnight. Going home late from my Saturday activities, I was only able to entertain them for only a few hours on Saturday night and on Sunday morning. Though we used to chat before on the latest happenings in our lives and exchange updates, this visit had a deeper meaning to me.

It was the first time I was able to open up my innermost feelings to her and vice versa. I felt more at home with her with no inhibitions whatsoever. Just as if I was talking to my mom. It really felt good to be able to know her feelings on certain things regarding marriage, to be able to learn from her past experiences, to be able to dig deeper on her innermost thoughts, to be able to know what hurts her the most.

This was a rare moment. I hope there'll be more in the future. It's not the length of time but the quality of time spent together that really matters.
