Thank You, Friend

Bi~yoo~ ti~ fool day, blogosphere! I was just chatting with Ira and talked about old pictures...I sent her some old pictures that I've found and scanned them. I miss my friends, most of them are away and it makes me sad somehow.....I just want to let you know (yes all of you and you know who you are...) that I am forever thankful for being a part of my life. You have made me rich by giving me the gift of hope, by being there when I needed a friend, and by giving me a shove in the right direction when I hesitated. Thanks for bringing happiness to a heart full of woe, and for all the wonderful things you do. I found a true friend, when I found you. http://pictures.aol.com/

Father's Day

Yesterday was Father’s Day. I went to the mall and I saw a lot of kids with their dads. And I can’t help but imagine what would it be like if daddy is still with us. I have a lot of questions in mind like ~ Are we going to have a lunch date? Or Are we going to spend it at home and watch a movie or something? Or how about dinner date for the whole family?” I miss celebrating father’s day. I guess it’s just normal if its your first time. I’m not sure if you all know that I love to daydream…that’s why I always daydream…it’s my way of escaping from the realities of life. I’m the kind of person who have a lot and strong imagination about things, life and almost everything.

For the past few weeks I always daydream that my dad is still alive and I usually spend some quality time with him. I dream of the things that he usually do, things that we used to talk about and the million stories that I would like to tell him. I also dreamt of sharing wonderful pictures with him, because I really love pictures and I’m into scrapbooks. I love making them. How I wish they can come true but I know that can never happen. And it’s kinda scary for a dead person to come back to life..that’s eeerrrrrie!!!

I have included an article on how “Father’s Day” started….
The Story of Father's Day
Father's Day, contrary to popular misconception, was not established as a holiday in order to help greeting card manufacturers sell more cards. In fact when a "father's day" was first proposed there were no Father's Day cards!

Mrs. John B. Dodd, of Washington, first proposed the idea of a "father's day" in 1909. Mrs. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart. William Smart, a Civil War veteran, was widowed when his wife (Mrs. Dodd's mother) died in childbirth with their sixth child. Mr. Smart was left to raise the newborn and his other five children by himself on a rural farm in eastern Washington state. It was after Mrs. Dodd became an adult that she realized the strength and selflessness her father had shown in raising his children as a single parent.

The first Father's Day was observed on June 19, 1910 in Spokane Washington. At about the same time in varioustowns and cities across American other people were beginning to celebrate a "father's day." In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national Father's Day. Finally in 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father's Day.

Father's Day has become a day to not only honor your father, but all men who act as a father figure. Stepfathers, uncles, grandfathers, and adult male friends are all honored on Father's Day.

I was just reading and I read an entry all about Guidance. Upon reading this, it made me start my day with a smile...and I just want to say Thank You to the person who wrote this...I loved it! And I hope the entire blogoshpere like it too!

When I meditated on the word Guidance, I kept seeing 'dance' at the end of the word.
I remember reading that doing God's will is a lot like dancing.
When two people try to lead, nothing feels right.
The movement doesn't flow with the music,
and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.
When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead,
both bodies begin to flow with the music.
One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back
or by pressing Lightly in one direction or another.
It's as if two become one body, moving beautifully.
The dance takes surrender, willingness,
and attentiveness from one person
and gentle guidance and skill from the other.
My eyes drew back to the word Guidance.
When I saw 'G', I thought of God, followed by 'u' and 'i'.
'God, 'u' and 'i' dance.'
God, you, and I dance.
As I lowered my head, I became willing to trust
that I would get guidance about my life.
Once again, I became willing to let God lead.
My prayer for you today is that God's blessings
and mercies be upon you on this day and every day.
May you abide in God as God abides in you.
Dance together with God, trusting God to lead
and to guide you through each season of your life.

Wow! thanks for sharing this one.. very inspiring. I use to envy Anakin (star wars) for having a mentor like Obe-one-kenobi, i thirst for someone who will guide me, help me bring out the best in me.. with this article I will no longer look for a mentor because God and I will do the dance together.. "Dance together with God, trusting God to lead and to guide you through each season of your life." God bless you Pink Princess. :)

Words That Defile

He who guards his mouth preserves his life, but he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction. —Proverbs 13:3

Recently I overheard an older woman speaking to a friend about the current obsession with dieting. “These days,” she mused, “I'm more concerned with what comes out of my mouth than what goes into it.” There’s a world of wisdom in those words.
Jesus put it this way: “Those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man” (Matthew 15:18-20).
What we say affects others. “There is one who speaks like the piercing's of a sword,” says Proverbs 12:18. But what we may overlook is the effect our reckless words have on us. When we gossip, or when we malign others, our words begin to ruin us, for we gratify the evil that is in us and strengthen it until it overthrows us.
On the contrary, when we guard our lips we strike a blow at this malevolence. “The tongue of the wise promotes health,” continues Proverbs 12:18. We protect our souls, for we weaken the very thing that lies in wait to ruin us.
Ask God to “set a guard” over your mouth and “keep watch over the door” of your lips (Psalm 141:3). Let your words promote life, not destruction. —David H. RoperDavid H. Roper-->
Guard well your lips, for none can knowWhat evils from the tongue may flow;What guilt, what grief may be incurredBy one uncautious, evil word. —Elliott
A word from your mouth speaks volumes about your heart.
Bible Verses of the Day"Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength." ---Isaiah 40:28-29

Boring day

Finally day off..time to take a bunch of sleep, sleep and sleep.....When I got home I immediately prepared my mom's breakfast and their lunch (they have to bring "baon" so that they will no longer cook at the shop) and after that I went straight to my comfy bed and slept. And when I woke up...oh..got a headache...after 6 hours of sleep without any interruptions..now headache....maybe too much sleep for me? I don't know.
I'm actually bored...I know I have to do some reviews and study my lesson..hehe..but I don't want to do it right now. I feel lazy....
I just ready my text messages and Arc sent me one...she reminded me to download her some songs for her mp3 player..well, no need for that..I already have them..hehe..maybe she got tired of listening to Linkin Park, Parokya, Green day and of course..her favorite ~Beatles~ (kapanahunan nya kasi yun). I love you Arceli Sam!
Whenever I am bored or sad...I usually look at old pictures...I love pictures so much! So I have created some slide shows. Here's the link...hope you like them but if you don't you don't have any choice but to pretend you like them! No violent reactions please...I know you don't want to end up looking like this one...

Happy Anniversary!

Hiyee!!!! I'm so happy today! I know you all missed your know it's been a while. I am sure you are all wondering how come my subject line says "Happy Anniversary". Well....it's because today's date is June 5. It's my journal's first year anniversary! Aren't you happy? Me? Of course!
I think my last update was way back February-the love month. Well let me give you an update with what happened for the past few months. :D

Last March ~ well ummm....actually nothing happened. Boring month! yes boring!

April ~ If someone would ask me what I can say about this month in just one word? My answer would be "Toxic" yes...it has been a very busy month. First of all, we had our quarterly business review. And during our practice, I have to change my shift, I actually have to work in the morning shift! And I know that you know how I hate the morning shift. I'm a . But all was worth it. It all went well. Then, the next day we had our Achievement day! Boy, it was so much fun and exciting! Each team have their own themes and we have chosen Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and I get to wear Snow White's costume. Our team even won the Best Presentation.

May ~ For me, the month of May bring outs special memories...It is my most favorite month, well, except for December of course! Last May 5 was my dear mommy's birthday I want this day to be very special and I want her to be very happy even if thing were not the same anymore...I don't want her to feel sad. It's the first time we will celebrate her birthday without daddy. 3 weeks before her special day, I already talked to my sister friend Cha (well, I call her my sister friend because she's been like a sister to me and she is my very good friend...I actually don't use the term "best friend" it's not bec that I don't have one or something but I don't want to sound unfair to my other friends..for me all of my friends are the best and special). Well, I already made some arrangements with Cha and Ann Ganda, my initial plan is have a simple dinner at Ala Creme actually it's a surprise dinner. Now came the actual date and....we had a change of plan. I have invited my mom's very good friend, Zenny to join us but she can't come early because she was in Manila, so I just decided to do it at home. I informed Cha and Ann that it will be done at our house, sad but, Ann can no longer come since, she have a scheduled check up and their car wasn't fixed yet. While as for Cha, I know that she also cannot join us because her mom went to Malaysia at that time and she still have some errands to do. So around 4 pm, I asked my sister to pick me up from our house and I told my mom that I have to go to work early and I have important things to do and I will be back around 6 pm. And I didn't tell her that I was on leave. So what I did....I went Luk Foo (Her resto! and the food is great too!) I just ordered some food for take out...then head to the flower shop to buy her fav flower...which is roses! Btw, my mom loves ROSES. By 6 pm, I'm all done and ready, I went back to our shop and my mom and sis were already waiting for me. Then I told my mom that we have to buy a cake for her since she doesn't want to go and eat out and after that we can go home. When we came home, she went inside the house first and me...I have to sneak in the back door with all the food and flowers. And by the time she went outside her room...Surprise! and the rest...you already know. Oh, and her friend Zenny, she arrived around 8 in the evening. My mom was so happy...I have her pic holding her flowers... hahaha...I just love to look at the smile in her face.

And look at the Roses! Oh my! I love them so much!

Another special day to celebrate is my dear daddy's birthday ~ May 18 ~ If he's still with us, he already 56 years old. Oh...I miss him so much....all of us. I always daydream that he is alive . I miss chit chatting with him. I miss having our family dinner where everybody gets to share something with what happened throughout the day...sharing jokes, stories about everything..friends, work even the movies and shows that we've watched...we do talk about everything that's why every nig we were having our dinner for around a couple of hours....yes, that's loooonnnggg.....I miss that too! And whenever I come home from work then I would sleep right away, my dad would usually go to my room to kiss me goodbye before they go to the shop. I miss him...
On that special day, I bought some Roses before I went home. And I also dropped by Chowking to buy something for breakfast before heading home. Me and mommy had a nice breakfast before we all went to visit him. We all stayed at Holy Mary for half an hour before heading to the shop. In his special day, I prayed and thanked God for giving us a wonderful daddy. And I couldn't ask for more.....
Another special event was...my dear friend Jebe girl got married! I am so so happy and I am very thankful that I get to be with them to celebrate on their special day. Here are some of the pix we had.
~ Oh, and before I forget...to my "Wounded Healer", be sure to greet my journal or else...........hahaha...missed you guys! let me leave you with this....

Well, that's it for me! till next time!!!

Song Of The Week :D


I tried to be perfect..But nothing was worth it..I don't believe it makes me real...I'd thought it'd be easy...But no on believes me...I meant all the things that I said.... If you believe it's in my soul...I'd say all the words that I know.... Just to see if it would show...That I'm trying to let you know....
That I'm better off on my own
This place is so empty...My thoughts are so tempting...I dont know how it got so bad...Sometimes its so crazy that nothing could save me...But its the only thing that I have... If you believe its in my soul...I'd say all the words that I know... Just to see if it would show....That I'm trying to let you know....
That I'm better off on my own (On my own!)
I tried to be perfect..It just wasn't worth it...Nothing could ever be so wrong...It's hard to believe me...It never gets easy...I guess I knew that all along... If you believe it's in my soul...I'd say all the words that I know...Just to see if it would show....That I'm trying to let you know....
That I'm better off on my own
