Childish and Childlike Was My Aunt – In Memory of Tita Lola, Part 1

Today, the 3rd of August, Tita Lola would have turned 89 (I think…..or 90, I’m not too sure.)

My siblings and I grew up with our maternal grandmother and Tita Lola, my mother’s older sister.

We all lived in the same household.

When my niece and nephews were born, who also lived with us, we fondly called her that — “Tita Lola.”

Lola, though, isn’t my aunt’s name; it is the Filipino term for “grandmother.”

Putting together her being both an aunt, (“Tita”) and grand aunt, Tita Lola later became our term of endearment for her.

Tita Lola dedicated her life to caring for our grandmother, as well as taking care of my siblings and me.

On the occasion of her natal day, in her memory, I’m re-blogging and dedicating this series of posts to her.

On the 3rd of this month, Tita Lola would have turned 82 (or 83, I think. Not too sure.)

And there was such a huge shift and…

    I found your post about your aunt meaningful. I am happy to read in your part 3 that you are releasing your guilt over your past attitude towards her. I have encountered the great childlike simplicity of special needs individuals and it does seem like they are a holy and pure soul coming again to this earth for another lifetime. I am (revealing my religion) a orthodox Jew and I have worked for a special needs home for Jewish adults whose parents want them to live in a home that provides them activities and singing for the Jewish sabbath and holidays as well kosher food. What is special about this home is that me and my friends are paid mainly for the purpose of providing the spiritual services of singing so when me and 3 other friends spend the sabbath their we go around to the apartments where they live in and sing happy Jewish songs and occasionally dance to provide sabbath spirit and joy. They might have disabilities when it comes to some activities but when it comes to music and spirituality they are high functioning 🙂
