“[The] agony of waiting to recover and hug my children…the sacrifices of my hubby taking care of everyone… my siblings taking turns sending food to me and my kids at home…checking on us each day….the frontliners who work so hard taking care of us…iba pala pag makita mo at maexperience mo ng actual (actually seeing and experiencing it for yourself is something else). I appreciate them more,” Lapus added.
