Dear Marce Pehpot,

Oh, what would I do without you? You have made my blogging life so much more meaningful. Did I already tell you that you inspire me? Oh yes, you do. And more than that, I admire and envy you at the same time. You are so active in your blogging career while simultaneously raising three boys, a husband and a little lady. I wouldn't have any idea how you actually do the things that you do but I salute you. I bless the day when you asked me to become Sati's ninang (godmother) because that was the day when I got to know you better. I am sometimes ashamed because I felt that I do not exert so much effort in being a godmother. I apologize for that.

You are always so generous and kind. You would willingly give link love to those who need them. Your are always enthusiastic in sharing your blogging experiences and would even tell how you earn online. You would go out of your way to surprise someone. You were always the first with the brilliant ideas. You are always ready to lend a helping hand.

Now, why the letter? I just want you to know that I am thankful. Thankful that even though we haven't met yet, you accepted me and became my friend. Thankful that you have helped me in so many ways. Remember our YM chat yesterday and you instructed me to do something? Well, I already received the good news last night. Without you, I wouldn't have gotten the courage to do it.

Thank you Marce Peh! May God bless you more.

This is my official entry to Inspirational Insights 1st Blogversary Contest.

As a first-time expat Mom, I have had my fair share of struggles and tears. I know that many stay at home moms just like me have their own struggles as well, some may even be greater than mine. But I have always tried to be strong for my family. In most times, I succeeded. In some cases, I break down and cry. You could ask my Hubby... he is witness to all my struggles and pains.

There are instances in my life when I felt like giving up and giving in to my problems, but I cannot afford to be selfish. I have a family who depends on me and I am responsible for them. I cannot imagine what I did in order to rise above but looking back, I always see my Hubby and my daughter by my side... even when I was at my worst. And I realize that it is them, my little family, who has helped me emerge victorious from all my troubles. They are constantly the ones cheering me on. And whether I admit it or not, there is no question that it is them who inspires me, who lifts me up, who stays by side through thick and them. And for that, I am most THANKFUL.

It is the little things that they do that inspires me to be a better wife and a better Mom. Just seeing them happy and content, playing together, having a laugh, giving me those lovesick puppy look, the little but unexpected surprises, the gentle touches, the hugs and kisses, the travels and adventures along the way... all these inspire me and help me discover that indeed happiness and love and strength is just right before my very eyes.


Some Wonderful Changes

>> Tuesday, May 25, 2010

I have been neglecting this blog for quite some time now. I know there's no room for me to make excuses because I am able to update my main blog, Just About Anything, on an almost daily basis. And while prayer is an essential part of my routine, I just can't bring myself to write down what my heart is saying. And so instead of waiting for the right moment to arrive, I have decided to make a few changes in this blog. The blog title is still the same but you will find that the tag line has changed.

Of course, this blog will still contain my spiritual reflections and prayers. But I have decided for the most part to make it a point that I share my life's journey and some of my reflections of the day here. I acknowledge that everyday is not always rose-colored but I also believe that there is goodness and beauty and happiness in the not-so-beautiful circumstances that life has to offer. And so beginning today, I am taking each day one step at a time.

I hope I will be able to do justice to this blog and be able to inspire and encourage the people around me. It is with the hope that through my life experiences, I may have been able to empower and inspire others especially those whom I share similar circumstances with.

The road ahead may not be certain but with a wonderful family, equally wonderful friends and a good Lord to back me up, I know and I believe that I will make it through.


All About Bumper Stickers

Most bumper stickers are PVC constructed stickers. They are almost always meant to be stuck to the bumpers of vehicles so that other people can see them. You can find bumper stickers that contain all kinds of messages; there is literally no message beyond the scope of a bumper sticker.

Bumper stickers may be used for commercial purposes, where businesses pay you money to put their stickers on your car. These arrangements are quite common nowadays, and there are companies that offer to find a business whose ad conforms to your choice. This is a good way to advertise, and public transport vehicles in many countries have been displaying this sort of advertising for decades. Only recently has the idea of using privately owned cars for this kind of advertising become popular. It is a good way to promote a business, and it is a good way to make some cash without doing anything but buying a car and driving it.

Bumper stickers are also often used for religious purposes. You've probably seen those old cars that are decorated with bumper stickers promoting either an apocalypse or another impending religious event. More commonly, drivers might put one or two well articulated religious stickers on their cars. If the reading is made interesting, long traffic jams become bearable for the driver in the vehicle behind you. It's a way to do some promotion of your particular religious beliefs on the go.

Custom sticker printing can be used to produce some of these bumper stickers. For example, political campaigners will ask you to promote their candidates by placing their bumper stickers on your vehicle. Drivers who support the contender may be happy to put a bumper sticker or two on their car, turning their vehicle into a mobile campaign tool for their favorite candidate.


Spring Cleaning

>> Thursday, May 6, 2010

It is Spring time and for of us who enjoy the four seasons, spring is always something to look forward too. Why? Because it is around this time of the year when we celebrate Easter, the day our Lord Christ has resurrected from the dead and is also the time of the year when the Catholic Church celebrates the new church calendar year.

For normal human beings like me, spring also means spring cleaning where we clean up all the stains in the house, change the curtains and linens and carpets into fresh ones, vacuum out the dusts and rid the house of the cobwebs... so that it will look good as new.

Perhaps this should also be true for our inner beings. Remember the passage from the Bible where Jesus turned over the tables and sent the vendors away because they have made God's House into something like a
palengke or market.
