A SAD REALITY

" To HELP a person several times, is only as good as the LAST TIME. The moment you said NO, makes them forget all the YES."....

The above mentioned statement caught my attention while reading some tweets of the people I admired....yes, a sad reality....

CONTENTMENT




If CONTENTMENT rules the heart, a simple life can be the happiest. It will remain a dream though when we start to complicate.

A KIND OF LIFE HE PROMISED TO GIVE ME































This is kind of a late entry...I was browsing some of our pics and yes, i missed to write a blog for my hubby's birthday.....






Last birthday he whispered to me after the birthday prayer,( thank you for all the understanding,care , love and everything, i will continue to give you the kind of life I promised to give you...) ....and i was so touched.....He knows me that much as much as I know him that much...We just have to live life one day at a time...






Thank you Lord for giving my hubby good health....Continue to give Him the desires of his heart....Embrace him always from harm.....WE love him...






A small celebration at work and we surprised him when he arrived from work that morning...He sent also a kind of thanksgiving to both our families in the PH to have a small celebration with him during his birthday....






Thank you Lord for the blessings!
















LOVING MY IPAD2!





























YES, a gift from my hubby...smile from ear to ear....




I am not a techie person, for as long as i could surf, email,chat,make folders for pictures, pertinent papers, type documents etc, etc....that's barely enough for me,,,simple....


But that was before when apple was introduced to me........heheheheheheh....




I've been reading blogs of ipad users, mac users and all about apple products,mostly positive comments and all....and I asked myself, what's the difference?It's just the same anyway,,,but i am totally wrong...




When my husband told me that he was gonna buy me on that day an ipad2, 3 days after it was open to the market in US...i told him,,never mind,,but he insisted ...but it was not just for me anyway,,also for our son because he was included in the honor roll again....




When the best buy customer service called us up that our ipad 2 is ready for pick up,,,the three of us were excited and it got intensed when we were able to browse, discover everything about ipad2....call us late bloomers on this but it was an exciting experience...




Day by day,,,i am loving it more,,,like my assistant in so many ways,,,,




Thanks to my hubby , and to God almighty for giving us the opportunity of exploring some of the apple product's finest...

MY SUFFERING IS MY OFFERING!
















As i typed this blog, it's a Monday here in the pacific coast...A Holy Monday...and the music being played in my ipad is the song of Fatima Soriano entitled,,MY OFFERING....every word sang by this very innocent girl touched the very tip of my nerve endings...and can't help but cry....As the song goes....my life is very simple..my dreams are few and little..i don't have much to offer except the pains i bear,,my suffering is my offering,, i am offering all my sufferings, and if ever i will face more trials and more pains then i will offer them gladly again,,i know that there's a reason,,i know i have a mission,, someday i will see the vision,,for now i must be strong...sometimes i doubt and question,, i need some consolation,, but if this is my mission,, i must be brave and strong....



I have so much respect to this very brave girl,Fatima Soriano, a visionary...Everytime i feel down,, everytime i feel as if my prayers are not answered,, everytime i feel as if life is so unfair ,,,i always get my strength back everytime i remember the braveness of this girl..How can I question the unanswered prayers I have? when in fact this little girl bravely accept all the things that somehow make her life to end?...dialysis everyday, blind, and here she is, happy with life,,a smile that is so radiating everytime people will see her...gives so much life to every person she met.. always encouraging people to continue holding on to God...that everything happened for a reason,,...Thank you so much Fatima,,,you just don't know how you give meaning to my life..Thank you so much for your songs , always touches my heart in so many ways and helped me stand up everytime i feel down...Thank you....






Yes, Lord,,,,I have so many things to be thankful for...my family,,,my husband,,my son,,for supplying our needs everyday, and somehow help in our own little ways our family back home in PH..Thank you for giving us more than enough from what we asked of YOU...I know that YOU have great plans for me ....






Thank you for the good health you bestowed on us....the past year was so good to us when it comes to health,finances,,,,,thank you for always guiding us in our travel and letting us conquer some things just within our capacity...All these will not be possible if You did not let us experience all of these...Thank you Lord....Please forgive us for our shortcomings when sometimes we became weak with our faith when some human weakness sets in..We pray,,AMEN...






THANK YOU MAMA MARY!

OUR UNICO IJO!



As I uploaded some of our pictures during the spring vacation, my husband and I got so emotional when we watched the pictures of our son....Oh my gosh! he has grown so much that as we scanned and viewed some of his baby pictures, we can't help but felt a quench in our hearts(allow me to be quite corny and senti about this entry)......Yes, thank you son for always making us proud in everything that you do, for making us so happy everyday....for listening everytime we inculcate some reminders and values that we want you to follow...Other people said and asked us why we only have you when it fact you deserve to have a brother and a sister...but even if we gave our reasons, funny is that they felt they know our plans and ourselves more than us... as if they know the responsibilities that we have and the past that we have been through...well anyway let them be,,why will we let them rule our lives anyway, right?they might as well manage their own lives rather than taking notice of everything that we do..that does not bother us anyway,because we know that at this very moment, we have many things to be grateful to God..and these we will always treasure.....And believe that whatever God will bestow on us, we will receive it with open arms because we firmly believe that God knows the desires of our hearts, right?

We would like to thank you for understanding ......And we know that you feel everyday that we are a family.....
