my ever thankful heart

I just love it when the U.S. celebrates Thanksgiving holiday. I am loving this holiday more this year especially now that I just got back from working in traditional office. The company I work for follows the American holidays in determining our non-working days. This is why I was fortunate to have enjoyed a two-day respite from work. In fact, I'd consider it as a four-day vacation from work if I were to include Saturday and Sunday. Yey! Thank you, America! :-)

In connection with the Thanksgiving holiday, I told my husband I am going to post again something about gratitude. I always have a lot of things to be thankful for in my life. Overall, life has been great. Despite a few setbacks here and there, I feel like the Lord has been very kind to me and my family. With God's help, there weren't troubles that me and my husband weren't able to endure together. I think I've said or written this somewhere. Why do I feel like I keep repeating myself? *grin*

In terms of work and career matters, one of the things that I am thankful for is having met wonderful employers along the way. I am referring to both my previous and current employers. There is only one word I can describe both of them - they're "heaven-sent"!

It was a little hard to say goodbye to the previous company I have worked for. In fact, I had initially thought about keeping it (it was a full-time online job) while also working in traditional office. However, I know it would be a point against my integrity if I don't let my previous boss know about my career plans. Besides, it would be hard to serve two masters full-time since I obviously don't have a bionic body. To make the story short, ex-boss wished me well in my career move. In fact, he sent me a wonderful and touching message that I will forever cherish and I will share them to you here, my few readers! :-)


Now, I am not so sure if I deserve ALL those words from him.. Husband has only one advice for me - cherish these things in your heart and not in your head.... :-)

I also have nice words to say about my current boss and the company I am now working for in general. I would like to thank them, especially the big boss, for taking me back without hesitation. I promise to work harder in order to meet or exceed (hopefully) their expectations.

There will be more gratitude posts to follow.

a message of gratitude

This is a post of gratitude. I know I have said my thank you's to these guys already but I just want to do it here, so that when Didpdip grows up, she will be able to see this.

Come next week, Didpdip will be celebrating her first birthday. There's always something with "first birthdays" that would really make us want to celebrate, especially for the sentimental moms like us. Hubby and I were going over our financial ledger, though, and already agreed to celebrate Dipdip's birthday by ourselves. However, there's a little pressure to have at least a simple celebration especially because they say it's a first. And so, thanks to my father who got my brother to donate something for Dipdip's birthday, we can hopefully have a simple celebration next week. Didn't have anything planned yet, as of.

Well, another surprise came in just this week. A friend of mine "Cat" emailed me to say that she'll be sending a little something to help with Dipdip's birthday. My, oh my, tears came rolling down my eyes. How can the Lord be so kind enough to us? Well, this friend of mine--I haven't even met her personally yet but ever since we've met in this blog universe, I could not explain to you how this friendship happened but it just happened.

So to you, dear Tita Cat (and to your husband J and your lil one Rome), thank you for being so sweet and thoughtful to us and our little Dipdip. I hope I have erased your family name well enough. LOL.







Oh, and here's another one. I should have done this a long time ago but I thought I should wait until Dipdip would be able to wear the red dress that this other friend and ex-officemate of mine had given last December. I had it kept for my little girl to wear on her birthday. So, no pictures yet. However, Dipdip was playing with the toy that she has also given her. So, to you Jenn--thank you so much as well! She really loves to play with the toy already even though it is still not fit for her age.



Thank you guys for spoiling our little one with gifts that we are not even sure we can provide them ourselves yet.

A Message of Thanks

I could’ve written about this sooner but I’m still waiting for the pictures to get downloaded to the computer.

We got this package at the Mandaue Central Post Office last Friday. Wow, it’s for our little princess Diane Pauline! (Yes, we decided to name her Diane Pauline as Shan had earlier suggested since my sister Jemimah also suggested the same.) Thank you, Cathy, Jordan and Rome for being so sweet and thoughtful. Thanks for the nice message on the card, too.

Thanks also to the Mandaue Central Post Office for rendering an honest service. We only had to pay thirty-five pesos for the customs fee. I heard about some horrible stories about packages not getting to the supposed recipient. In fact, it’s been almost three months since my hubby’s sister sent a package from Norway to their parents in Talisay via registered mail but the package was unheard of until now. His sister might have to file a complaint for this. Whew! I wonder what’s wrong with the world today.

Thankful Wednesday

Surprisingly, there’s not much to do in the office today as I’m already way ahead of my deadlines. So while I'm still idle after taking our lunch today, I thought I should write down what's in my head at the moment.

Sometimes small deeds or simple thoughts of concern would be enough to brighten your day. This morning, the office had a happy, upbeat mode. An officemate brought with him his nice set of speakers, the kind that goes boom-boom when connected to music from the Internet or from one’s PC. Everyone sang along and had a happy time until the audio and bass seem to have gotten louder. My officemate-friend Sheila was quick to notice it and sort of reminded the officemate not to set the bass too loud as it could possibly affect the baby I'm carrying inside my womb. I never thought about it until she had let me realize that even adults would palpitate when bass is set too loud. I was greatly touched at this simple thought or act of concern.

I know I've already said my thank-you piece to her via YM- but here's another- Thank you, marie! Sweetness really comes naturally now with you.


thank you,thanks

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'...
