A grandparent’s love are forehead kisses, freshly-washed blankets, and good food. It is rest after hours of playtime and the warmth inside a hot chocolate during a rainy day.
Lola Eva Duave is among the group of women who weaves paper in Smokey Mountain.
At first glance, one might think of her as a child. Lola Eva is too small for his age. Her back is also hunched and she has a missing toe.
But despite these things that she lacks, she is still full.
She is full of hope. Lola Eva said they could not afford a doctor to determine her condition and she doesn’t mind.
“Nabubuhay pa rin ako. Kahit ganito binibigyan pa rin ako ng Dios ng lakas ng katawan kahit maraming naranasan (I’m still alive. Even if I am like this, God has still given me the strength amid difficulties),” she said.
She is full of talent. Among the things Lola Eva is proud of is her work in weaving paper. She can weave bags among other things.
According to Lola Eva, most of her works are bought by foreigners.
She is full of love. Lola Eva still found the time to weave a dress made of paper when her granddaughter needed a costume and they didn’t have the money to buy one.
