December 31, 2009....

(took the above pics on our way home from san fran trip, took the 101 freeway, appreciating the beauty of countryside and seaside)

Barely 4 hours more then another year 2010 to welcome and embrace! Year 2009 is a better year for the whole family whatever aspects it may involve. A lot of plans redefined, a lot of realizations and conclusions were met and some merely changed for the better. . God knows my inmost thoughts and wishes not just for my own but for my family and back home in PI. I firmly believe that He knows the desires of our hearts, and I know i have to be patient and strenghthened my faith, always asking His guidance and forgiving heart. Thank you Lord for slowly granting our wishes as a family. As I always say everyday in one of my personal prayer, LORD TEACH ME TO BE PATIENT , TEACH ME TO WAIT, IF OUR PURPOSE IS TO BE OF HELP TO THOSE IN NEED, HELP US TO MAKE THAT PURPOSE BE REALIZED AS PLANNED. THANK YOU LORD FOR A GREAT YEAR!THANK YOU MAMA MARY FOR ALL THE UNDERSTANDING.

For people who are victims of tragedies and calamities, hold on to your faith and as you leave the past behind, try to embrace the hope that 2010 will bring to each one.

Thank you 2009!

A must to visit....if you are a lover of arts and a fan of books about greek Gods will love this place...romantic as such...


We love this san francisco landmark( one of our childhood dream to visit)...surprisingly, our son never complained,,hiking up and down the hill, transferring from one place to another, made some picture taking of his own, this experience!...


There might be problems about parking areas, but over all experience was fun..We visited first set of places that we considered priority...We did a lot of walking (huh shedding off calories,double purpose?hehe)...We really love the place so to say....We were amused of so many things we saw..Like the "bukid in the city?"hehehe...and we have tons and tons of pictures....a long travel maybe via freeway 5 and going home via 101 freeway....what an experience! from countryside to seaside....sunrise to sunset....windmills and ocean of plantations..indeed a great travel for the family!Thank you God Almighty!


My hubby told me that he is always amused everytime we have road trip or travel because i made it a point to surf the net about details that we have to accomplish while on trip, print and make a folder ,prepare everything for documentary purposes.(for me that's how wives and mothers are.agree or disagree?)..and of course taking into consideration the points of interests that our son loves to visit because way way back he never missed to include san francisco that he wants to visit . We have our expectaions though,but a 3 day visit is not enough, at least we have to make use of this short visit.


Our family spent a 3 day vacation in san francisco, california in time for a 3 day duty off of hubby and school break of our son....a very memorable and "for a change experience" for our family!!!!Thank you Lord and mama Mary for giving us the opportunity to bond in a place where we enjoyed so much!

(Above pic is one of the tower rides in one of the places we went last summer,,just trying retrieve some pics to fit in with this blog entry)

I can't help but feel so sad about a news that we received last night. Although my hubby told me to just never mind but it really has a painful effect on me. I just wonder some people whom you considered friends, close at that, surprisingly find ways and means to silently compete with whatever plans we have and with whatever we have and even tried find ways and means just to prove that they are far more better than us and always compare themselves to us..I mean why does it have to be us? I just find it very funny because we are just simple individuals, with simple dreams, and don't even have the luxuries in life because we have other priorities and other things to be happy about more than material things, its our family and back home in PI."MAKAPUNGOT BA PALANDUNGON NGA WE ARE SO OPEN TO THEM ON SO MANY THINGS, UNYA KAMI RA DIAY ILAHANG GEBALI. ANOTHER LESSON ON MY PART NGA UNGUARDED RAKO KAAYO. NAKAHILAK KO SA KAPUNGOT, MASKI PAHIBAW NAMO NGA NAAY NAHITABO NGA UG BUOT HUNAHUNAON, MAHIBAW POD MI BISAG GAMAY PARA MAKATUGUN POD MI.UG DILI MI MAKONTAK PHONE, MU LEAVE UG MESSAGE OR SENDAN MI LETTER , WALA ,SO MEANING WALA MI TRATOHA UG UG TAW. siguro alien mi .HEHHE..MUKATAWA NALANG KO BISAG SAKIT SA DUGHAN. INGON AKO HUBBY, 'POBRE MANGUD TA PARTS"..AW NGANO MAN DIAY POBRE, DILI BA DIAY TA TAW..SAUNA BITAW MUSABOT TA NILA NGA DILI SILA PATANDOG KAY NAAY GE ASIKASO, WALABA DIAY TAY RIGHT MAGPAHATAG UG RESPETO SA ATOANG KAUGALINGONG DECISYON. .

So sorry for this entry, its just that, pahungaw lang ko bah, maayo ning sa sulat ipahungaw para dili ko highbloodon. ako rapod matiguwang ani. hehe..I better SIGH AND NEVER MIND THEM ..We still have other things to consider and to be happy about. Thank you Lord for giving me patience and self control...I am not a confrontational person. Usually I just cry it out,but really sometimes, lessons learned in a very painful way....

It's been a week of roller coaster emotions so to say! I thought this would extend to christmas and new year celebration. But thanks God, things were resolved. Thanks for the efforts on both party to make things be in its proper place and the most important thing is that LOVE WILL ALWAYS PREVAIL....

(above pic of father and son at the park, moments like this will always be precious...let's take time to enjoy life with our children....)

"LESSONS IN LIFE" by anonymous

If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them,.For they have helped you learn about TRUST, and the importance of being CAUTIOUS to who you open your heart to.

I am a very unguarded person. I easily put trust and give my friendship to people whom i find very easy to talk with. But there would really come a time that situations and circumstances will tell you to STOP LOOK LISTEN and try to be cautious at times especially if you already heard and observed that things really are not in its proper perspective. And it hurts knowing that people whom you considered friends are not doing the same things as what you expect yourself to be considered as a person for whatever reasons they have. I may not have the wealth in this world,I may not have the best of all things, but I will always be a friend no matter who you are, no matter how many times you have hurt me consciously or unconsciously, if you need someone to listen to your innermost thoughts without judging, i am here. But please don't take me for granted when it comes to making up things or putting words in my mouth. I do have my maximum tolerance level , but please dont push me to the limits..Sometimes i told myself not to be too open to anyone about my thoughts and experiences to so many things.Even though i have good intentions in doing so, its just that other people are not that appreciative. They would like to really see persons whom always at a second best because they want themselves to be always the best.. May they realized that RESPECT IS NOT BOUGHT, IT IS EARNED AND GIVEN TO YOU.,,,
