1. We forget to thank people who do good deeds, small enough to go unnoticeable sometimes!
2. We often forget to say thank you to God for even the smallest blessings we get from Him.
3. We forget how short life is and we take for granted a lot of people, opportunities and moments we know we are gonna regret eventually.
4. We forget to pray.
Last night, we just got bad news from our househelp, a really serious one. It was regarding her son who got into a car accident and ended up in an ICU with his foot amputated. It saddened me tremendously because manang, despite her “sometimes” irritating work habits, still is family to me. I know I get too maldita to almost all of our househelps but I never go too far (well, except for ate Dina, but we made up in the end and we’re all still friends up until now). I also know how we might not have treated Kuhrin (manang’s granddaughter) the best way we should have treated her during her last days here at home, pero we tried to befriend her, to play with her, to take care of her, plus, we gave her a lot of toys and gifts. We just didn’t want her to stay all her life here since she has a family she needs to come home to, and she’s gotten a little bratty (but that’s another story). So to cut to the point, I just want to say that I am truly sorry for manang. She doesn’t deserve this. No one does. It just makes me feel a little guilty that I should have been a better alaga (which I did try to because my sister has gotten a little short-tempered and maldita too like me especially to manang, so I tried to compensate for that by being sweeter to her, which I guess still wasn’t enough), but I did not because of my attitude (sometimes), pero I know I did try to reach out to her especially kung dalawa lang kami minsan sa bahay. So now, I just want to pray for her son’s fast recovery since like what mama said last night, Kuhrin is just 4 years old and she’s the eldest of 3 children. It would’ve been a big tragedy if she loses her father, so trying to think positively, I want to ask God to take care of their family (like I always do) and to give them anything they cannot really handle. They can make it through this. I know they will!
So to go back to my list of things we forget up there, I know as busy bees we are most of the time, we should still spare even a few minutes of our days praying to God (not only for ourselves but for the whole world as well, knowing that anything might happen nowadays), thanking Him for every single blessing we receive and living our lives to the fullest. As I have said in one of my entries, we should always be prepared, and one way to be just like that is to feed our soul with goodness and to do good to everyone as much as we can!
P.S. hindi sa nagbubuhat ng sariling bangko/upuan, pero I am 95% sure that I am not guilty of #’s 1, 2 and 4 on my list up there coz I have always been thankful and prayerful to God (and I pray for the whole world and the souls in purgatory), so I hope that you be too! And as for #3, I should try to work on that a little bit more!
So to end this entry, as usual, I will leave some of these thoughts for you to ponder on…. Some are a bit too shallow, but you get the picture, get the picture, literally! hahahha (images from weheartit!)
and P.S. #2, Speak of the things we should be thankful to God for, I do wanna thank God again (and papa and mama for buying and sacrificing their new fones and giving them to us instead—-what great parents we have! thank God for that too!)
thank you for our new fones! If before, big deal na na lahat tayo naka-colored nokia fones, mas big deal na lahat tayo ay naka touch screen na (kahit na as usual, the best fone goes to JUS pa rin with his galaxy mini, but still) You see, it’s wifi ready and we can tweet, watch youtube vids and check up on our fb friends!! SOBRANG THANK YOU PAPA AND MAMA! If you get to read this, I promise to buy you all the gadgets you want when I get a job, you techie parents, you!! Imma buy you soooper high tech gadgets na ala-starwars high tech na! hahaha! someday! I LOVE YOU GUYS!! and I LOVE YOU LORD!
And This just in, I pray for my family and relatives. I just learned last night that there might be a little bit of a something something again, so God please bless them!! Bless us all please! We are still all good people!
and I would also like to leave this beautiful song (which I discovered years na ata, ago, pero kahapon ko lang nalaman kung sino kumanta and all, THANKS TO KAT –>as usual!)
It makes me think that there’s still hope for all of us, when we look up to the sky!
