Around this time, last year, I was just trying to understand the news that my father finally passed away. I had just booked a ticket to fly and see him the week after when I got the call that he had already gone. It was one of those things that you wanted to change so bad but couldn’t. I mean, people die, yes, but what is a few days just so I can see him one last time? Just so he can meet his youngest grandchild? Couldn’t it have waited for just one more week? Nevertheless we continue. We went ahead to fly because the tickets were nonrefundable. However come next week and we had prepared much for nothing. After several hours at the airport our plane is said to have been having trouble that we were offered the options to rebook or refund and we took the latter. We stayed and decided to wait for my father’s ashes back home. Fast forward to March and we fly to the US. Using the refund money plus vouchers we received as reparation for the hassle. (We were in the airport for twelve hours.) We were booked to come home in April, but Corona happens and we are still here. We are finally coming home soon and praying (so hard) we don’t get cancelled anymore. (We’ve been cancelled three times.) But before we do, I just want to stop and notice the fact that yesterday was my father’s first death anniversary. Unbeknownst to me when we rode that plane in March that I would reach this day. Where I was supposed to be last year, is where I am now. And I cannot help but ask (again), why couldn’t we be in the same place at the same time? I can answer that many ways. One that would make the father more guilty than his daughter, or the other way around. But what is the use? There is only one hope that makes sense at this time. That though our misgivings, we can someday see one another at our best, because of our faith in Jesus Christ.
