Staying strong for Christmas away from home

ROSITA Morrell, a 69-year-old resident of Monte Maria Village, Catalunan Grande in Davao City and a mother of four children, hasn’t seen home since she left in 2013 to work abroad.

Morrell is currently working as a caregiver at a home for the aged in Fresno, California.

At her age, Morrell already has nine grandchildren and one great-grandson.

It’s been a long time since she experienced the Christmas in the Philippines as well as celebrating the season beside her loved ones.

Morrell said Christmas in the Philippines is really different from where she is right now.

“I missed everyone, and I miss home,” She said.
Despite of her age, Morrell still managed to endure a heavy work since she is a vegetable lover and a health conscious person.essensa1_

She loves organic food and her favorite meal is mixed vegetable soup or what they called in Davao “law-uy”.

Apart from her family, she misses the food in the Philippines, most probably the spinach and the morringga leaves where she used to pick up at her backyard in Davao.<a href=”http://www.sunstar.com.ph/davao/lifestyle/2016/12/19/staying-strong-christmas-away-home-515850″ target=”_blank”>MORE</a>
