The rising hope

The rising hope

            It has been raining since last day. I’m still continuously doing my field work in here. The talking, distributing and walking session. I know that through this at least I can advertise the company here in
Roxas
City and I can leave them a memory of it before leaving to
Iloilo.

            It’s really exciting to experience that people dumped you for through this you will be more encourage to try so hard and think of a new ideas and concept with which you can improve yourself. I really enjoyed my walkathon today. I’ve been to the beach where there are so many people though it’s raining. Some of them are celebrating family reunions, some are just walking, others are having party with friends and etc. I’m so glad I was able to perform and accomplish my mission today.

            Field work is really tiring and I’m feeling cold right now…grrrr…grrrr…hehehe but its ok…

            After this I’m going home do the laundry and prepare my things which I will bring to
Iloilo…Better be ready earlier…

            I’m very much excited to see my mom…yeheyyyy at last she’ll be home…

            About my new job I do really hope that I can learn things easily and as well as I can contribute to the company’s improvement. God is there for me I know…

            He’s my one and only guidance, helper, friend and consoler. I thank you God for this life and for everything…

Struggle for life!!!

Struggle for life!!!

            In our daily life and struggles it is sometimes hard to imagine how we were able to overcome on problem and skip to the next.

            Just like mathematics. Logic is really needed to look and fine a better solution. Everyday we are facing different problems, loses and disappointments but behind it is our goal of finding the right way and right solution to get out of the trap.

            A lot of friends are asking me if what Christmas present did I asked. Well, the only thing I Asked for God is that good health for my family, a career for me and continuous shower of blessing to those people who are behind my every success.

            I was even amazed and touched by how God creates love in the hearts of those people whon He is using to be an instrument of my hope and success. I was amazed by how He made a very wonderful puzzle in my life that once solved I really saw and experience the real and true beauty of Hid love and care for me.

            Last Dec. 23. I was in the middle of my sleep. It was already 11:00 o’clock in the evening when  my phone rang. I was in a hurry to answer it and was so surprise to hear a strange voice from the other line. It was my classmate way back my college years. Mrs. Evangeline Develos Pekarek. She also was blessed by the Lord for she was able to marry an American Citizen Navy Captain and was blessed with two siblings.

            During my college days, she was one close friend. She told me I’m the girl she like the most inside the class because I haven’t even ask any single favor from her or anything, like money and etc. She even told me that my classmates were always asking money, foods a lot more from her. Especially when they discovered that she was a
US citizen. I just smiled back at her and told her. My mom doesn’t told me to be like that and also I’m a shy person and why should I asked something from her. From then on we became close friends. Though I’m not asking her to give me food during our recess she would always buy me snacks. She treated me like her daughter. When I was in my sophomore years she went back to US and keeps on sending me greeting cards.  Until our communication stopped for I can’t even reply to her mails because it’s expensive to mail in US. 

            That night she was shocked to know I quitted my schooling. I told her the reason behind. I don’t have enough money and I can’t afford to pay for the school fees anymore. And she gave me a very, very  wonderful offer. She is very much willing to pay for my school fees and would want me to be back schooling. I was so happy for that news. Herein the
Philippines it’s really import ant that you’re a degree holder for you to have an edge in the continuously improving society. 

            I really can feel that a lot of people are trying to under estimate me because I’m an undergrad. But it’s just ok, I understand them.

            It is also my desire to be the company’s asset that is why I’m very much willing to be back to school and finish a course.

            My classmate told me that I’ll just let her know if I’m already ready.

            For now I need to prioritize my work first for my family….

            God is really good and I love Him so much  for providing and blessing  me more and more everyday. Though it has a corresponding pain and struggles but I’m glad it was his masterpiece for me…

Christmas Present

Christmas Present

            I’ve been to
Iloilo yesterday to look for a boarding house. The trip is really tiring but it’s worth it. I was able to visit to the new office and meet Ma’am Jo too. Good thing that before I went home I was able to settle and find a boarding house. Ma’am Jo also offered me a help. She told me that the rooms above the new office will be opened for bed spacers.

            I really enjoyed the trip. I’m really excited to start my new job their  on January 2. I do really hope that I can make improvements and I can make it to befriend all of the people in the office. Hope they’re all nice too!

            Thank you Sir Danny, This is more than any Christmas present that I had ever received. Thanks for giving me my career. Thanks for everything and I do hope that God will always continue to shower His blessings upon you and your family. Merry Christmas!

Christmas’ Essence

Christmas’ Essence

Christmas Time!

 

            Why Christmas is considered as a special day! Why do we celebrate it? How much is its worth and what is its real meaning. A lot of people are celebrating it but doesn’t even know its real worth and meaning.

            Christmas is celebrated to commemorate the birth of the one and only Savior, the Messiah, Jesus Christ. It’s not celebrated because of the gifts, foods and etc. We need to put in our hearts and minds that Christmas is not just an ordinary day. We really need to be thankful because we are given the chance to be saved from our sins and from the fire of death. God is really and is always good at us.

            The essence of Christmas is always misinterpreted by people. A lot of them thought that when Christmas came they really need to prepare more foods and gifts. they don’t know that the greatest gift they could ever give is their love and faith to God. For Jesus doesn’t look at the material presents or gifts or at the outside but rather He is seeking the faith that is inside each and everyone of us. As long as you do have the faith and the heart that knows how to love and care. You’re a truly blessed one for you’re one of a kind. You love Jesus and His masterpieces.

            I love Jesus that’s why I celebrate Christmas!

For God

For God

            It’s really amazing that everyday you are faced with different challenges which you need to conquer and you’ll find out in the end that you were able to surpass it. It’s great how God gives each and everyone of us our daily exercises. Though sometimes we were really tired and even blaming Him for it but we still realize that He was the sole reason of our failures and success. During our hard times He was only reminding us that He’s there for us and that He was really excited to hear our prayers for it’s the only way we can tell Him and let Him feel we still know Him. On the other hand when we succeed He was also the big reason behind it, for because of our prayer His heart was touched and that’s why God gave us the strength to conquer it. It’s only that He needs our faith. And of course our faith is one significant factor that keeps us from continuously moving on even though we’d fallen for so many times. I know that God is the reason why I’m here today and why I’m reaching this far. That is why I would like to dedicate this article for Him. I know that this is not enough. I know that I need to do more things and have more faith to prove to Him that I’m really thankful for all of the wonderful blessing He had showered over me, for all of the temptations and baits that He made to really made me more stronger and braver. I really thank Him for everything. How lucky I am for knowing Him and for having Him inside my weak heart. Thank you Lord for all of your gifts and for your continuous protection, guidance and support. I’m hoping that even just with this article at least I may be able to reach you out. I know you’re also sneaking inside my heart while I’m writing this. You are my greatest and most precious Christmas gift.

A Tribute for “Chubby”

A Tribute for “Chubby”

            My dog “Chubby” was following me when I wake up this morning. She was teasing me with her sharp teeth. She was a very sweet dog. Every time  I’m home or I’m arriving from work, she would always run to me and wagged her tail and play with me. She was really nice and I love her. In our house I was the only person she would always play with. When I sleep on my bed she would crawl and lick me with her tongue. And scratch me with her paws so carefully as is she was also thinking not to hurt me. Though sometimes I get so irritated for her routine of always scratching, biting and teasing me but I can’t help to stop my self from laughing. Instead of getting angry at her I would just tap her and hold his arms and we would dance, dance, and dance. She was a chocolate colored dog, looks like a caramel coated chocolate with pink nose and grey sweet eyes. When she was still a puppy I would always carry her and hug her like a baby. We were really close with each other and I really can feel the dog’s love and care for me too!

            This morning when I get up to bed, chubby came rushing to me and played with me, scratching me, and teasing me to play with her. I’m in a hurry and so I was not minding her. She continued doing her thing until maybe she really wanted me to play with her too, she bit me on my legs. Just a small and gentle bite. I pretended that I was hurt and slap her with my slippers just softly. I told her to go back home for I need to go to the well to take my bath. She followed. When I was at the middle of my bathing I just noticed someone licking me at my back and scratching my skirt. When I turned back it was chubby who is happily chasing me again. Actually chubby did not go at my  aunts house because some of the dogs are trying to bully her. It was just this morning.   I shouted at her to be back home again. I saw her cross the road and disappeared. After bathing I trudge my way back home. While I was walking, I suddenly heard a strong screeched and bump sound at my back. When I turned back, I just saw my dog lying at the road and was already dying. She was bumped by a truck. I don’t know just what to do and I just noticed the tears rolling down on my face. I run back took her away from the road and brought her home. But she was already dead. The tricycle driver who witness the event told me that he really saw the truck with the reckless driver who never even gave signals. Chubby’s body was not just bumped but was run by the trucks’ wheels. I was in tears while staring at chubby whose eyes are still open and as if it was looking at me, with the looks she would always throw at me when she wanted me to play with her. I then suddenly felt that my legs where she bit me was having little pain. But above it is the pain that my heartis feeling for losing my once lovely and sweet dog. I have seen no stains of blood in her body nor wounds. She died of internal hemorrhage. My hands were trembling while I was trying to hold her eyes and letting it get close.She was one wonderful pet. Now no one will tease me anymore, no one w ill run to me when I’m back home from work and no one will bit me again. Chubby died. and I really was sad about it. I texted my friends I’m mourning because of my dog’s death.

            Chubby will always remain in my heart. She is one great pet and dog. I together with my brother and sister buried her body. I was the one who cried the most. Even our neighbors sympathized for my pet’s death.

            She made me realized that they are really “man’s bestfriend”.

            Chubby this article is for you….

“Love thing” continuation

“Love thing” continuation

            Regarding yesterday.  Yes I really did make it to talk to that suitor of my sister and I really told him a lot of things. He was even shocked to see me and even told my sister that I’m a nagger. Well I’m not. I was just letting him know that what he was doing was unfair. I told him honestly that I’m a man hater. And take note he was older than I am. I asked him “ How old are you?, What made you decided to court my sister? What is the highest educational attainment you have attained? Are you aware of infatuation? Can you explain to me if what infatuation is? Before you decided to court my sister have you ever asked your self of the possibilities and impossibilities that might arise in your relationship if ever? Are you aware that my sister is only seventeen years old? Have you considered the fact that maybe she was just infatuated or you are just infatuated? etc.”

I even told him that: “ Did you know that I’m a man-hater and as her sister I have this right to know the person behind my sisters love life? I am also a person who is hard to please when it comes to that matters. well, you can’t convince me within only a period of months. Did you know that love takes time? I’ve never been into this situation but I understand everything. I’m not a perfectionist but I’m just concern about my sister’s career and future. Have you ever think that you might become one of the reasons  that her studies will be affected? I’m sorry but I’m just being true to myself. I just want to let you know on how I feel. Maybe you can include these things into your New Year’s resolution for 2007. Why don’t you try to look for someone who is at your level. I’m 21 years old anyway and I know you’re feeling awkward that I’m giving you this advices and telling you this things. Well, I’m not trying to stop you or discourage you about what you’re feeling. I know I can’t stop your heart from beating but I’m just asking for a little respect. Just don’t force my sister. Just respect her decisions and once again try to think even seven hundred times about infatuation. Well I know at your age you already had that higher level of understanding. I don’t care if you’ll get angry at me but I’m just concern about  my sister I hope you understand. Thanks for the time. Byebye…Nice to meet you.

            Yes, and at last I was able to breath again after that talk. As if I had given an advice to a younger brother…hehehe…At last now he knows that she’s courting someone who has this nagger sister.

            Hope he’ll realize that love is not infatuation but love really…
