an inspiring story of simplicity

On our way to work one morning, while we were riding our motorcycle, we noticed the van ahead of us bore a mini poster plastered at the back of the vehicle with some words that are not quite readable if you don't get near it. There's a picture within the poster, though, which I later recognized to be that of St. Therese of the Child Jesus. Out of curiosity, I asked my husband to drive closer near it and I forced my eyes so I can have the chance to read some parts of it. I knew I can google it later when work is over. Luckily, I had an idea that the words written in the poster were excerpts from the Story of a Soul. I googled those 4 words and realized it was all about the life of St. Therese. This beautiful and inspiring story about her life has got me reading the rest of the day. I thought I should have just listened to the audio book so that I won't tire my eyes out (I guess I have to accept and acknowledge the need of eyeglasses now at my age) but thought I would appreciate the words better when read rather than heard. Nonetheless, I thought I would eventually listen to the audio book as soon as I'm done with the written version. Anyhow, I have come to appreciate how St. Therese, in her writings, had made me realize that it is in our own uniqueness that we are made beautiful; and that no matter what circumstances we are in, we don't have to question God about it. We have our own purpose and that we need to just follow His will.

a coffee-inspired life, anyone?

I ran into this beautiful video presentation about seeing life through a cup of coffee. I'd like to share it with you guys so we can all have a coffee-inspired life. :-)



I guess, at some point, we are guilty for choosing the best cups even if what we really wanted was the coffee.

Today, I resolve to enjoy  my coffee everyday even when they are not served from the best cups! Care to drink with me?

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
