When my husband died last July 7, 2003, my eldest child is only 4th year high school and my youngest is only 2nd yr. high school with my meager salary as a clerk I thought I’ll not be able to send them in college, but with all the sacrifices in life and through the help of our Heavenly Father both of them are now working. I really do not know how we were able to survived. I even sent them to the University with very high tuition fees because it is private and catholic schools in our place.

Even though I am a widow I’m still very happy because I continue serving the Lord by helping in the church and serving during the mass not only in our parish church but also in our chapel in our subdivision and also in our office during first Friday mass or when there is an occasion. I always trust God and lifted up to Him all my problems because I know He is always here besides me to help and guide me.
