    I’ve had a full day today, a really good day spent with the greatest friends any person can have. People have often said that to have one friend for life is already a blessing. Well, consider me super blessed because I don’t just have one really great friend, I have several. I spent lunch until the late afternoon hours with my ACE team friends. They are the bestest (if there ever was a word) people in the world. Everytime I…

    When I was younger, all I’ve ever wanted to do was write. I wanted to be a writer. I’m good at it. Not to brag or anything. I just know, writing is what I’m good at. And I pursued it. For a while. Until life happened. Before long, so many other things became more important. Work. Money. Reality. I lost track. I lost my gift. I lost my passion. I slowly became a robot. All work. A little play. A…

    Sometimes, we reach a point where everything is just how we want things to be. When you’re at this point, be thankful. Celebrate every moment. Live every day. Glorify the Lord in the best way you know how. Say your prayers of thanks. These moments won’t always last. But there is always something greater. It is not true what they say that when you’re already there, there is no other way to go but down. The truth is, when you…

    This post is a day late. My late stepmother’s birthday was yesterday. However, as always, I have been caught up in work and other personal stuff, so I wasn’t able to stop and write about something. She was a fun person. She wasn’t the usual stepmother character that used to be portrayed in fiction where she had imaginary horns and always made things difficult. In fact, she was kind and nice to me. She did not treat me like a…

    Last Sunday, Jeffrey and I spent a whole day in Plantation Bay Resort and Spa. He has always wanted to experience what the place was like. It was so fun. Yes, the package is a bit pricey for most people, but the good thing is that an expensive package meant the place wouldn’t be too crowded. I’m planning to take my mom there too, as a Christmas gift in December. I’m sure she’d love the place as well. We started…

    There are people in your life you will remember for always. You may never see each other again, but you know that these people have greatly impacted the person you have become. I have so many people to thank the Lord for. As hard as life has been, I think I’d gladly go through all of the hardships again, if it meant I’d still end up where I am now. I will always be thankful for the friends I have…

    I’ve always been the kind of person with no definite life plan. When I was younger, I’ve always wanted to become a doctor. When I grew up, I realized I could never stand the sight of other people’s blood. How was I possibly going to attend to the sick? When I entered college, I was dead sure I’d be enrolling for a bachelor’s degree in accountancy. However, I ended up pursuing Sociology-Anthropology. I spent the next seven years professionally working…

    I have to admit; I ask for too much. I am difficult to deal with. I pick fights and fight back whenever I can. I whine; I complain, and I demand. A lot. I am not an easy person to love. But all in all, I thank all the stars in the sky because I have people who love me. I have more than my share of people who love me. So, yes, I may not be the ideal, but…

    I was going through my old blog at http://ishathebeautiful.multiply.com when I found one blog that I particularly like. Actually, there’s more of these blog entries that I always like reading over and over. It’s just that this one surprised me. It was written March 11, 2007. That was the time when me and LOVE weren’t really in good terms (in other words, I was in everywhere else but LOVE). I am surprised at how far I’ve come from the time…

    I have just added five new bloggers to my blogroll. If you don’t find your name there yet, don’t fret. I will be adding more in the next few days. Sooner or later, your name and your link will appear there too. I am having fun with blogging. I think this may be the longest time that I have stuck with a blog and written at least one entry everyday. I am also very grateful to my readers. Today I…
