Well, anyway, I guess I'm back on track. All it took was a little prayer and little motivation from my favorite motivational writer, Og Mandino. Thanks to the pdf search engine, I was able to browse again some excerpts from the Scroll Marked VI of The Greatest Salesman In The World.
The title may sound like a boring book about sales and marketing, but trust me - it's a book that you really can't put down.
That's right. I thought of mom today. Yesterday, I also thought of her. And I'll always think of her every single day. She got me into liking Og Mandino's writings. She got me to memorize The Greatest Salesman's Prayer at the age of six. It's a long prayer but I was able to memorize it because she recorded it on tape and played it everyday. Today, I can still say those prayers out loud but now it is already said with a deeper meaning or thought now that I am beginning to age gracefully.
Incidentally, it's my mom's birthday tomorrow and the next day after that. How's that? When she was alive, we used to celebrate her birthday on the 31st, until years later when she asked for a copy of her birth record, she found out that her birthday should be on May 30th. Well, grandma and grandpa (her parents) had different answers. We didn't know which one was accurate - her baptismal or her birth certificate? So, anyway, we respected both dates. :-)
