Party is Pinoy!
Chris says, “Goodbyes are GOOD, because it’s always about people and that’s good.” No matter if make-up runs down the cheeks. No matter if the nose must be wiped with your shirt because there is no tissue. No matter that your face looks all screwed up with emotion.
So of course here, in the Philippines, goodbyes are a great reason for a party! That’s the despidida.
We have had a few. We cry at each. We hug. We laugh and eat. We fellowship. And Lord, please bless our dear neighbors with protected ears, because we sing. We sing of the Lord and how wonderful He is to bring us together as family. We’ve said “townie” good-byes in Manila, Butuan and Malaybalay.
Join the parties through these photos (had to borrow a few) of beautiful family God has joined by heart strings:
