Its a Beautiful Sunday afternoon here in Fiji, a bit cloudy and windy my type of weather really.
Its not only the first new day of a new month but its actually Fathers Day here in the islands, today’s blog is a short yet emotional one as I pay tribute to my Beloved Momo (meaning uncle in Fijian) who passed away 5 years ago while I was studying in India.
A father figure all my life who supported me and my sister especially when it involved our Education. His the reason I had to get my Degree and I think it still hurts coz he never got to see me Graduate 2 years later.
I thank him for all his hard work, dedication, and advice throughout my life and as I now reap the rewards of having a career and making something really out of life. He was one of the contributing factors of that success.
This is the most personal I will be since blogging a year ago, and I feel I needed to share this with you all.
Sometimes in Life you don’t have to understand why things happen and I have learnt to accept and move on. Grief, pain, shock, and regrets are normal emotions of Life.
I have chosen to remember the Best moments I had with my uncle Sai who was a taxi driver all his life, our usual trips to the village when we were younger, our morn pick ups for school, and shopping on a Saturday, and the usual snacks and sweets he’ll bring home after a stop over rest for work were all priceless memories I’I’ll have for the rest of my life.
Vinaka Momo for Believing in Me Always and I hope I will Always Make you Proud ❤
But I thank GOD & I’m glad I came back for the Holidays in 2014 for 2 months not knowing it would be the last time I would see him.
