Happy is the person who knows what to remember of the past, what to enjoy in the present, and what to plan for in the future.
—Arnold H. Glasow
I can’t let the year end without recounting and appreciating the blessings and good days that came into my life.
Birthdays always make a day in every year a bit more special, but more than the party I had to celebrate my 28 years of existence, what touched me are the surprise greetings of love from my friends and family.
This year I went back to having dogs and it started with Austin, a Schnoodle (Schnauzer–Poodle mix), who was given to me by my boss.
Trips, Locally and Abroad
I’m very much pleased that I am able to continue to travel and to bond with friends and family. There’s the Amansinaya day trip, Dumaguete trip (wherein I swam with the whale sharks) and Singapore–LEGO Land trip.
Although I wasn’t able to witness the ceremonies, I am overjoyed that my mother has surrendered her life to the Lord and is now a Born-Again Christian. Nothing gives comfort as much as knowing that your loved ones have a renewed faith and strengthened relationship with our Creator.
This is truly a blessing! Had I not received my new passport, I wouldn’t have been able to go on our Singapore trip!
Going to Boracay is becoming a yearly tradition every time my sister from the US comes home. And I am loving it!
It’s a shame I can’t remember the other events and good things that made my 2013 memorable and exciting. But for everything that God has given me, I am truly grateful.
Here’s to a new year — 2014 filled with all the good stuff!
