If there is one thing in life that I am truly grateful for aside from life itself, I can say it is the blessing of true friendship. With the kind of world that we have right now, we can seldom find friendship that endures through thick and thin. As I have said, it is difficult to find genuine friendship nowadays and I am truly blessed for finding friends that are truly worth keeping. True friendship knows no distance and sometimes being away from each other makes the friendship even stronger just like what I and one of my closest friend have.
Ma’am Joy is a few years younger than I am but we instantly get connected when we first saw each other at work last 2005. I was the first Food Technologist in the company and it was her first job after graduation. We can easily relate to each other because aside from being Food Technologists, we also have almost the same life story and role in the family. We argue a lot about work because we need to make things challenging and better but at the end of the day, we treasure and respect each other as an individual.

Last 2008, she was given the chance to be promoted and became the head of the company’s branch in Palawan. She may be my junior but I admire her for her strength and determination to succeed in life and make things around her a little better. I am also grateful that we became friends and treat each other like sisters. I always appreciate her effort to communicate despite her busy schedule with her family, work and school. I know how taxing it is to be in law school while taking care of a baby but she still managed to make time for everything just like their recent family vacation here in Davao and Digos City.
Together with Louie and their baby, Ma’am Joy was in town to visit her parents and the night before their flight back home, we had the chance to bond at home together with some other friends. It was actually an instant reunion among all of us. We updated each other about a lot of things and talk nonstop whatever comes to our minds as if there is no tomorrow. LOL. It was my first time to meet Louie and I can say that my friend is in good hands (two thumbs up for Louie!!!). Little Veronica is such a darling and behaves really well.

It was a night to remember for everyone. As a host, it always a pleasure for us to be visited by friends and to accommodate them in our humble home . We may not have the grandest house in the world but we always see it to that we do everything we can to make them comfortable and at home. Thank you for the great time my friends and I look forward for another day of reunion with all of you soon.
