Angel in the office

We got her back! Picked her up this morning from the vet after her spaying and DOUBLE hernia operation! But she’s doing good and seem to be happy just spending the day with Mommy and Mamoy G at the office.

Our little conehead sitting on my lap while I was working. Still has that ready smile when she sees a camera (or phone) pointed at her though. (photo taken by Erika, our co-worker)

Fall…

stifled and bound,
yearning for respite
as i search for some answers.

 

forsaken and alone,
i helplessly witness
reason slipping from my fingers

 

confused and dejected,
i fumble blindly
trying to make sense of it all.

 

withdrawn and resigned,
i let go of my grip
and braced myself for the fall.

Spring Awakening…

Spring, most definitely, is my favorite season. Not only because it is a lovely breather from the freezing Winter, but mainly because i find Spring so inspiring!

Spring reminds me how wonderful God is. Seeing how nature, God’s living creation, wakes up from the Winter slumber. The seemingly dead woody branches of trees and shrubs start to show buds of new life. Dried up leaves and brown stems enliven with color, rejuvenating the once dead scenery.

And just like all of God’s work, Spring awakening tells me that there is nothing that He throws at us that we cannot survive and rise above; not the fierce Winter, not problems nor trials and tribulation. God is good! We, like the plants, just need to learn to wake up from the stupor, raise our hands and thank Him for another sunshine, another quenching rain.

Thank you God…

Dear God,

My life has been a roller coaster. Lots of dips and bumps, but just as much inclines. I try to keep up, go with the flow, and live it as placidly as i can, trying not to make the turns affect me in any way. I think i have succeeded in doing so…

In my moments of total desolation, i never questioned the pain. It may have brought me to my hands and knees, seemingly defeated, but still dragged at my feet to get through the day. Or it may have induced me to tears, crying myself to sleep, but still able to pick myself up every morning to face my adversity again.

Nothing can be severe enough for me to give up. Everything has its reason, and during those moments of despondency, i know the trials will end and i will emerge triumphant over them.

And i have, most of the time.

Despite the hardships, i thank you, for i see the strength in me to face and learn from them…

Despite the tribulation, i thank you, for i see the blessings afterward magnified a thousand fold…

Despite the struggle, i thank you, for i see the rewards to be more gratifying than getting them easy…

Despite the problems, i thank you, for i see the successes to be sweeter being hard earned as they are…

Despite the misfortunes, i thank you, for i see beauty in every ray of sunshine that breaks through the clouds…

And today more than any day, I thank you, for there is nothing more i can ever ask for.
I have everything i need, the people i love and those who love me.

My glass is half filled.

This is an old blog I posted on my birthday 2 years ago in one of my other blog sites. Just wanted to re-post it as a reminder to myself to thank God for everything that comes my way.

Inspiration as Diversion

I’ve been thriving all week! I need a diversion, and so I started writing again…

…I have to always remind myself that only I can make myself happy…
…I shape my own destiny, I am my own inspiration…
…I may not always be good at what I do, but who cares? As long as i love what I do and i still see the purpose for what I’m doing, then it doesn’t matter how I do it…

And that applies to everything…
