No doubt, the coronavirus pandemic has been a prevalent challenge throughout the year 2020. But despite all the hardships, the pandemic has also brought people together. The lockdown orders gave families more opportunity to be closer and bond with one another in the comforts of their homes. This is also the important lesson that Kapamilya actor Xian Lim has learned.
Ealier this week, Xian Lim has shared his epiphany during the lockdown. According to the actor, he stayed at home with his grandparents.
Throughout that time, he managed to be closer to them and get to know them more. This also gave him the chance to be more attentive to their needs.
“Throughout the course of the pandemic, I got to spend time with Mommy Mary Anne, my lola and lolo and realized how much family time is of huge importance. Sometimes we get too caught up in so much work and we forget what truly matters most. My grandma chose the room downstairs because she literally has hundreds of cross-stitch collection,” said Xian.
Xian also observed that his grandmother has been having trouble in going up and down the stairs of their home. Since his grandmother is already elderly and frail, going through a flight of stairs is truly a challenge.
So, instead of risking her life and limb, grandma just decided to stay at the ground level of the house.
To help his grandma, Xian decided to make an elevator in their home! According to the actor, the lift is made especially for his grandmother, so she won’t have troubles in going up and down the stairs. Xian also promised to show how they installed the lift in his next vlog.
“A few months have passed and I finally decided to acquire this lift and I’m just so amazed with the final product. I can’t wait for all you guys to see this. This is truly a happy moment for me. I now have peace of mind knowing that the seniors in my home is safer with this lift,” wrote Xian.
