Grief and Life Lessons


.

I just lost the most influential woman in my life, my mother.

No matter how you prepare for the death of your parents (she gave us a three-year notice because she was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2014), one can never be really ready.

I am grieving right now because of this profound loss. They say that there are five basic stages of grief namely: 1.) Denial; 2.) Anger; 3.) Bargaining; 4.) Depression; and finally 5.) Acceptance. The truth is I really don’t know where I am right now. Maybe because these stages are general categories not meant to be clear-cut steps felt one after another in a linear form, for how can one put a neat order in this messy roller coaster of emotions?

I thank everyone who extended love, sympathies, offered prayers to our family, especially those who took time out to visit us during our short 1.5-day wake. My mom really wanted just a one-day wake, probably because she didn’t want to burden us with a prolonged, exhausting one. But I was able to haggle for two days during one of our lighter conversations last year.

It was heartwarming to see friends and relatives we have not seen for years. When people come to a wake and try to console you, the usual question is, “How did she die?” In the tradition of The Last Samurai, I would rather tell you how she lived.

My mother Josefa “Pepay” Maquera Fres was a loving mother of five, grandmother of eleven, great grandmother of five, and the strong yet very sweet wife to my dad all throughout their 61 years of marriage.

During her wake, we encouraged people to write notes about her by providing a nook for this. Their messages were so emotionally uplifting, both the written ones and those verbally narrated to us.

My mother Josefa “Pepay” Maquera Fres was a loving mother of five, grandmother of eleven, great grandmother of five, and the strong yet very sweet wife to my dad all throughout their 61 years of marriage.

During her wake, we encouraged people to write notes about her by providing a nook for this. Their messages were so emotionally uplifting, both the written ones and those verbally narrated to us.

Let me share with you SIX THINGS ABOUT MAMANG:

  1. She was a bit “astig” growing up that her siblings and cousins called her Here’s a story that I myself learned about fairly recently showing how brave my mom was even as a young girl. During the Japanese Occupation one of her favorite male cousins was tasked to go outside of Laoag City to get some supplies. Even as her parents initially disapproved of it, she insisted on accompanying her cousin Cornelio. Unfortunately, on their way back to the city, they were not allowed to cross the border anymore. They had to live with a farmer’s family for two months. This was how she learned, first hand, how to live really simply. She ate the food that was available, slept on the floor and tilled the land like everyone else did. And she was only in her early teens. 
  1. The boyish girl blossomed into a town queen crowned by the heartthrobs of Philippine cinema namely Rogelio de la Rosa and Leopoldo Salcedo.
  1. She was the only one among the seven children who didn’t go to Manila for college. Her siblings went to Ateneo de Manila University, University of the Philippines, and University of Santo Tomas. She decided to stay home because she felt she still wanted to be with her parents during college. She graduated cum laude at the St. William’s College in Laoag City.
  1. She started late in her career but still managed to do a great catch up. She made sure she was able to nurse our youngest (who is 10 years and nine months younger than our oldest) before she started working to help augment family income. She moved up the ranks to become the Chief Examiner of the National Police Commission (Napolcom), then Assistant Commissioner of the Personnel Division. She became the first Regional Director of Napolcom NCR and later on The Regional Director of Region 3 until she retired in 1995. In between those years, she managed to obtain her Masters Degree from the National Defense College of the Philippines.
  1. She was an expert in crossword puzzle, crocheting and gardening. These were her favorite past times. She was a mean crossword puzzle solver as she always completed all the squares that came out in her daily newspapers. I don’t know about you but I’ve never completed any of those difficult ones she solved everyday. She always wanted her gifts to be personalized so her children and dear friends were recipients of her crocheted angels and doilies. She also had a green thumb and still managed to plant a few ones in our garden during her last stay with me in January.
  1. She said “I Do” to Rufino “Pinong” Fres more than five times! I think I take after her penchant of renewing her marriage vows for she said her sweet, “I do” on their dawn wedding on February 2, 1956, then again on their Silver, Ruby, Golden and Diamond anniversaries. And of course, in the more than 22,000 days together as married couple, they said “I love you” every single day. Up to Mamang’s very last breath, Papang was serenading her, “Ikaw lamang ang aking iibigin magpakailanman…” as they held each other’s hands tightly while we all cried watching them.

EIGHT MONEY LESSONS FROM MAMANG

I owe my being frugal to the example that my mom set for all of us. Here are some of my favorite FQ Lessons from the FQ Lola:

  1. Live within your means but enjoy the fruits of your labor. Just like a diet, you won’t be able to sustain it without cheat days.
  1. There is joy in giving. No matter how little you have, you can still give.
  1. Beware of “hulugans/gives.” Get a loan only for big ticket assets that appreciate in value like your home.
  1. Buying a house is a leap of faith and test of marriage. Don’t wait too long before building your own home waiting for the time you’re sure you have enough, for that time might never come, or will be too late that your kids have all grown up ready to leave home. Start small and simple then improve on it.
  1. Lend only the amount of money that you’re willing to “lose.” This way, when the loan turns sour, your relationship will not turn sour as well.
  1. Full disclosure about money in marriage. This way no party can accuse anyone of siphoning family money to undisclosed recipients.
  1. It’s good to celebrate family milestones. Even if she’s frugal she finds a way to hold a party to celebrate family milestones because celebrations are her expression of thanksgiving.
  1. Being rich or poor is primarily a mindset. She raised us to value ourselves regardless of our net asset value. Despite a simple life, she has always felt abundant.

TEN LIFE LESSONS FROM MAMANG

Aside from the money lessons, my whole being, how I conduct myself and treat others are greatly influenced by these lessons I learned from my mom.

  1. Speak your mind out, but do so in a respectful manner.
  1. It’s healthy for siblings to quarrel. She allowed us to express our feelings at home and reminded us that at the end of the day, we still loved each other. This was my constant reminder to myself when my sons were in that stage of quarrelling everyday.emotcon1
  1. But marital arguments should be private. This gave us a stable home while growing up. Before I got married, she reminded me that marital conflicts are best settled between husband and wife. Involving outside parties should be a super last resort.
  1. Respect is the most important ingredient in a marriage. At first I argued that it was love, but as I matured into my own marriage and saw other marriages, Mamang was right again, for even if love is still there but when the respect is gone, a marriage won’t work anymore.
  1. No matter how tapang and strong willed a woman is, she should be sweet to her husband.
  1. Awayin mo na ako, huwag lang ang mother-in-law mo! Do not to put your husband in a tight spot of choosing between the two most important women in his life. Connected to this is her other counsel, “Even if your husband starts expressing disgust about his own siblings and parents, hold your tongue for it would still hurt him if he hears even the same words from another person, including you.”
  1. No need to “pay back” to parents, just pay it forward by raising your children well.
  1. Celebrate life. Have friends. Hang out! emotcon1 Even if she was frugal, she always celebrated milestone events and went out with her friends.
  1. Be fair. Give people what their due is. Do not fight a weaker opponent. No favoritism.
  1. Be prompt and punctual. Do not penalize the early birds in favor of the latecomers.

image-03

On top of the above lessons I learned from her that regardless of your situation, despite the presence of great challenges including cancer, happiness remains your personal choice. She continued to be thankful to God for her life, for her many blessings.

Up to the very end, she made sure that she was not going to be a burden to us. She provided liquidity and guidance until her last breath. For someone who had a poor sense of direction (something I also inherited from her), Mamang was our true north. Somehow, even as we are now all adults with our respective families, we feel lost for our compass is gone.

Our only consolation is this. As we went through this crisis of losing our mother over the last few years, and despite having five strong personalities with different opinions at times, we have become more united and somehow more expressive of our love for each other. During the last week leading to our mother’s last day on earth, all five siblings, together with our 88-year old father, spouses, grandchildren and great grandchildren were crying one moment then laughing the next moment recalling childhood stories and bloopers happening at the ICU, church, etc. Mamang must be smiling down from heaven watching us.

To paraphrase my brother’s message during our celebration of Mamang’s life last Friday, “Hearing people share how Mamang positively affected their lives, how we, her children, are now living our lives and raising our own children because of how she raised us, how each one here was in one way or another affected by how she lived her life, I guess I can say that her life has somehow become ‘viral.’”

image-04

It was a profound realization for me that how we live our respective lives indeed has that “viral effect.” Let’s all ask ourselves, “Is my life creating a positive viral effect?” wallet-icon

Hey Rose! Do you take sessions on Financial Literacy? If so, what do you cover in those sessions?
Guest Feb 02, 2015
Hi Ms. Rose, Were can i get the free download excel file to show kids how they can become millionaires with regular savings. Thanks

Answered by Rose last Feb 18, 2015 / 03:25pm:

Hi, it's on the right hand side under Chapter 6, go there and look for the link: http://www.raisingpinoyboys.com/book/chapter/NgRPBRPB/Q0hBUFRFUiA2IC0gTU9ORVkgTUFUVEVSUyAoT3VyIFNvbidzIEZRKQRPBRPB

Ghurl Vacaro Jul 18, 2013
Hi Ms. Rose, I read your articles in Philippine Star and I'm quite interested on your topics about financial literacy. I just turned 25 and currently working in Riyadh, I'd like to make my savings grow while I'm still young and single, can you give me advice on how or where is the wisest way to save or invest? Thanks a lot! God bless you!

Answered by Rose last Apr 23, 2014 / 02:41pm:

Hi Ghurl Vacaro. I hope you read my article that tackled your question. I'm happy to inform you that it received a lot of hits both in this website and PhilStar.com. It was also shared many times. This means that your question helped enlighten a lot of people. Here's the link: http://www.raisingpinoyboys.com/dashboard/showArticle/MTYy

Raymund Camat Nov 25, 2012
For the boys, will you also consider financial literacy as a quality that you will look for to your future gf/wife?

Answered by The Boys last Nov 30, 1999 / 12:00am:

It would be ideal if she were but it's not something we would really "require" so to speak because it's not very common. I guess as long as she's not too much of the "magastos" type because financial literacy is something that you could learn.

Guest Aug 30, 2011
Why the title "Raising Pinoy Boys?"? Its culture specific and middle class ideologue ..care to explain? thanks

Answered by Rose last Aug 31, 2011 / 09:33pm:

@Guest Aug 30, 2011. The title is Raising Pinoy Boys because it's a compilation of a mother raising her Pinoy sons. Yes it's culture specific and middle class because that's where I belong. In my over 2 decades of parenting I have always learned a lot from specific stories of book authors, parenting seminar speakers and even conversations with other parents and educators of boys. Thus, I thought it would be worthwhile to share my specific stories and those of the parents of the successful Pinoy men I featured in the book. Thank you very much for your question.

Guest Aug 10, 2011
Can we invite you to talk in our school during a parenting seminar?

Answered by Rose last Aug 10, 2011 / 09:19pm:

@Guest Aug 10, 2011 - Yes you may. I would be glad to. Just send me an email specifying your needs for the talk - the audience, the topic, etc. You may send your email to RaisingPinoyBoys@yahoo.com or through this website. Be sure to leave your name and email address. Thank you.

Guest May 15, 2011
du u know chris tiu?

Answered by Rose last May 27, 2011 / 11:39am:

I first heard of Chris Tiu when he became a UAAP basketball player of the Ateneo team. I learned about his other admirable traits later on and decided to include him in the book. Fortunately, his mom is a friend of my co-parent so I was able to interview her. He and his parents attended the book launch (see pics in a previous article on the book launch - Jan 2011).

Angelita Kersey - Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit Women www.free50sneaker.com Apr 24, 2015
Since the Free 5.0 is marketed as a ?minimalist? shoe, Nike Free 5.0 I fully expected to only do shorter runs in them. But I was surprised by how much cushion the Free 5.0 packs. It felt much more cushioned than either the Karhu Flow Trainer or the Skechers GoRun. If I had to compare the cushion to any of the shoes I?ve run in, I would choose the Mizuno Precision before I would choose either of the minimalist shoes I?ve tried. Nike Free 4.0 In fact, if it weren?t for the minimalist marketing that comes with it, the Free 5.0 could easily pass as a flexible lightweight trainer. If the pair I received were not too small, I definitely would have gone on longer runs in the Free 5.0. There is of course an upside as well as a downside to this amount of cushion. Nike Free 3.0 The upside is the Free 5.0 will appeal to a wider audience of runners. Runners looking to move to a more minimalist shoe can use the Free 5.0 as a transition shoe. This may be especially appealing for runners who don?t want a midsole feature designed to promote a midfoot strike, Nike Free Run 3 like the ones found in both Karhu and Sketchers. Biomechanically efficient runners who are looking for a flexible trainer with a lower heel-to-toe differential (it is 9mm on the Free 5.0), but not the minimalist experience per se, can turn to the Free 5.0. The downside is runners looking for that barefoot experience will find the Free 5.0 too cushioned for their purposes. Nike puts their Phylon EVA foam in the midsole, Nike Roshe Run which gives the Free 5.0 a much firmer feel than Nike?s other shoes with Cushlon in the midsole, like the Pegasus or Vomero, but that firmness may not be enough to give minimalist runners the ground feedback they seek.

Nike puts their Phylon EVA foam in the midsole, Nike Roshe Run which gives the Free 5.0 a much firmer feel than Nike?s other shoes with Cushlon in the midsole, like the Pegasus or Vomero, but that firmness may not be enough to give minimalist runners the ground feedback they seek. http://www.free50sneaker.com/ http://www.free50sneaker.com/ http://www.free50sneaker.com/ http://www.free50sneaker.com/ http://www.free50sneaker.com/ http://www.free50sneaker.com/ Nike Free 4.0 Men Nike Free 4.0 Women Nike Free 4.0 V2 Men Nike Free 4.0 V2 Women Nike Free 4.0 V3 Men Nike Free 4.0 V3 Women Nike Free 4.0 V4 Men Nike Free 4.0 V4 Women Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit Men Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit Women
