R&B singer Kyla considers family and friends as the main factors upon which her happiness or sadness is based. A recent family visit made her appreciate that thought even more.
“They delivered pampano fish. Feeling ko na-miss lang nila ako. Excuse lang nila yung pampano fish. Hehe,” she said. (I feel they just missed me. The fish was just their excuse.) “I gave them coffee creamer and a pack of maple sausage that we love to have for breakfast.”
The singer revealed last July that she suffered her third miscarriage. Her first two miscarriages happened in 2018, years after she have birth to her son with husband, basketball player Rich Alvarez, in 2013.
Kyla wanted to hug her parents when the visited her, but she could not since she has also been visiting hospitals and she did not want to put them at risk in view of the pandemic. Still she feels that having her family’s love is special. Even as she already has her own family, she still misses her mom and dad.
“Love is the most powerful force on Earth. My relationship with my family and friends make a big difference to how happy or sad [I] am. Really, I cannot do without them,” she declared. “When life is tough, they help me pull through. These two right here… they make me laugh everyday and make sure i am always okay.”
“Anyway, iba talaga ang pagmamahal ng magulang (The love of one’s parents is really something different),” she stressed. “Even now that [I] have my own family, [I] still long for them. Iba ang dulot ng yakap ng magulang (The embrace of a parent really gives you something different).”
Kyla thus advised fans and followers to love one’s family, and to give them time despite being busy, saying, “[Create] time to enjoy and be with the people that matter to you. [Add color] to relationships that is important to you.”
“Para sa akin, ito ang pinaka-importante sa buhay,” she added. (For me, this is the most important thing in life.) JB
