Meet my sisters

I have five sisters and I am the oldest. As I was growing up, I showed my sister how to beat the poverty by doing something to improve our lives. But I guess, my example was not good enough because they just simply gave up their education.

Next to me is my sister Roselda (33 years old), she has three children now. Her husband is working as a maintenance guy in TESDA. We asked my sister to live with Mama before because her husband is not taking care of her and the kids very good. He has vices (drinking, and gambling) and he only give limited amount to his family. My heart was crushed when she decided to take the kids back to Manila to live with her husband. She became so skinny again. But I can't blame her because she is thinking of her children growing up without their Dad on their sight.

Next is Rebecca (31) and has three kids also. Her husband don't have a permanent job so she is constantly complaining about her life situation to me. I keet telling her that it's the life she chose. I hate to see my siblings suffer but my resources is also limited, I don't have a job and we are supporting my Mother and sending two of my younger sibs to school.This is Rosemarie (24), we called her Yheng. I sent her in college but she decided to stop and just look for work. She never find a job when she went to Manila but instead she got pregnant and the father of her son did not want to take any responsibility. So she went home to have her baby at my Mom's house. I was devastated by the choices she made but there's nothing I can do but to understand her situation.
This is Lyn (22), my husband and I wanted to send her to College after she graduated HS but she did not want to. She has now a daughter and a baby on the way. I am just glad that her husband is a nice guy and has a permanent job that can support her and the baby.
This is Mae, she's our youngest. She turned 16 last month and is now attending college. When my father died, she was only ten years old then. My late brother became her father figure when papa died so she took it so hard when my brother died too. She grieved so much and passed out several times during my brother's wake and burial.
These photos were taken before I left going to States. With my sisters Roselda and kids, Lyn, Mae, Becca and kids.

With Yheng, Lyn, Mae, our two nieces and our dog Budik.
With Mae and Lyn. Don't they look like twins?
Latest photo of us sa tambayan hehehe..

With Mae and Lyn when I was still working in school. We went to Dheo Indika resort in Tabaco Albay with the student leaders.
Thanks for taking time to read my boring life guys!

Hi Rose!
Am so glad to meet and know your siblings though not personally. Ganon yata talaga e, for each has his/her own life to live.

Ganda nitong bago mong blog. First time to visit here.

Thanks so much sa visit and well wishes. Medyo rest pa rin ako e.

Take care!

Nice families you have, Rose ^_^
I really envy you since I am the only child..
Have a blessed day, dear..

A.Marie said...

You and your sisters are so beautiful, Rose! :)

mye said...

you are all beautiful!

i perfectly understand you and i can somehow relate. we may have different situations but our feelings for our siblings are the same.

we are 4, i am the eldest with only 1 guy and 2 other sisters. we all graduated college and that's what makes our parents really proud. my brother and i are both married. i have kids and my brother don't so he loves my daughters well. my 2 sisters are still single, both working but can't find a steady partner to be forever with and what i hate most is that they seldom go home. it's painful to see what's happening to them. and i can just feel for my mom...

well..maybe we could just pray for all of them to have better lives...soon ^_^

Seiko said...

Thanks for sharing this Rose,you really had had so much in life,but then ganyan yata talaga ang buhay,yung gusto natin para sa kanila minsan hindi nasusunod because they have their own lives to live.Goodlooking kayong magkakapatid especially yung the youngest & yung sinundan ng bunso.
Have a Blessed weekend ahead you & your family & thanks for the visit.Hugs!
Btw,I love the way you addressed me as "ate"...really thank you.:)

Seiko said...

Btw,para ngang twins si Mae & Lyn...hugs!

Weng Forsgren said...

hello Rose,
basta panganay ano daw ganyan mapalabas ang being responsible. Siya yon mamroblema pag may problema, para pang siya yong taga pasan sa bigat ng mundo.
Lucky them to have you, kasi you are helpful and responsible.

Cecile said...

thanks for sharing these pix, rose; you are all maganda talaga, yung dalawa mong sis, parng kambal nga, ang gaganda!

shydub said...

Well you did your job tsang as an eldest in the family, minsan kasi hindi natin hawak kapalaran ng ibang tao. Ako rin panganay na babae sa amin, as much as I hate nagging, I only said once to my sister if they dont listen fine. They have choice in life but they chose to be like that. Imagine you were there spending money to ssent them to school but sounds like hindi sila interesado, well kung saan sila masaya, anong magagawa natin kundi suportaan. Ang gaganda ng mga lahi natin tsang hehehehe. Ang ganda ng bunso nyo, naawa ako nung pumanaw bro mo, (may he rest in peace)... Pero life sa atin, nasasanay na tayo sa kahirapan kaya siguro pinili nlang ng mga kapatid mo mag asawa hindi tulad mo na smart. They are still lucky to have a nice sissy like you tsang. Thanks for sharing your life. Pareho talaga tayo naiisip, I was gonna make a post about my siblings but my laziness bug got in my system lol. Have a nice day tsang. xoxo sa mga chubskulit mo.
