Last February 22, we attended the first Robles family reunion. I would like to think that this was inspired by mommy's passing as our Tito Exie (mommy's first cousin), realized that the family has grown so much that even the closest relatives don't know each other. Btw, mommy's the eldest among the Robles cousins.
For me, the highlight of the celebration was the mass lead by Fr. Alex Balatbat. Where he stressed that families fall apart when they want to get from others, what they can only get from God.
Three realizations I had during the reunion:
It was fun that even in a small amount of time, we're able to connect with each other. Hope this becomes a tradition so that even our great grand kids could still be connected to our roots.
