Love is not as simple as giving roses and chocolates on Valentine’s Day. Nor is it as easy as cutting red cartolinas into hearts. It entails a lot of sacrifices, too. Here is a simple story of a woman who braved through the storms because of her love for her family.
I met my husband, Raul, in his uncle’s house in Quezon City, where I was boarding with a friend and co-teacher in Maryknoll Grade School. He came to visit his father who was recuperating from a heart ailment. His stay was so short that we didn’t even get introduced to one another.
