This year, the sisters of Metro Manila had their annual gathering on Christmas Day itself, as we wanted to be together while Sr. Thelma, who will be leaving for Japan on the 27th, was still here.

There were games, presentations and exchange gifts, but what brought the house down was the "Christmas story" presentation of Candida Ma. de Jesus which was called “ the Nativity on wheels” as most of the participants where in their wheelchairs. (See photos below…)

More than the activities, what the sisters enjoyed was each other’s' company, the stories that were exchanged, the fun and laughter that seemed non-stop for the two hours that we were together.
