I discovered muzy.com app a few months ago where you could do picture collage, quotes, photo texts and photo quotes quite easily and I’ve been using it since then posting my personal quotes and prayers at our Catholic page in FB. I love it Here are some morning thoughts for you.

It’s my birthday today. And they always say, don’t count the years but the blessings that come into your life, but saying thank you is not enough.
For the times that I felt so happy, thank you.
For the days that my kids showed how much I am loved, thank you.
For those moments bonding with my little Nate and making me feel so blessed with his presence, thank you.
For my family, who’ve been so supportive of me through rough times, thank you.
For my dear friends whose presence in my life are blessed gifts, thank you.
For the people I’ve met along the way and blessed me with their smiles, thank you.
For lessons learned and moments cherished, thank you.
For the hard times that I felt like giving up but managed to stay sane, thank you.
For the times I laughed and cried, thank you.
But above all, THANK YOU SO MUCH LORD for the gift of life, it’s another year to be thankful for.
I miss my “apo” so much that I decided to have some hard copies of his studio portraits which Nissa sent me yesterday. So right after doing our monthly groceries, off I went to Picture City bringing my external hard drive along. I have all of the 25 shots printed with three pictures enlarged. Had to kill time for at least an hour before they were ready so I visited one of my favorite jaunts, Booksale. And what a lovely surprise to see another copy of the beloved classic A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. I was in college when got acquainted with Francie Nolan, the main character in the story. A few years ago, I bought a copy of my own but lost it during typhoon Ondoy. I guess it’s about time to reacquaint myself with this lovely book.
Wow, you can just imagine my excitement when I saw the pictures and decided right there and then to find frames for the three enlarged ones and two small shots of Nate, the Little Genius sitting besides two encyclopedia while holding a pair of eyeglasses. One of the sales clerks at Robinson’s’ Store helped me find frames and mount the pictures. Had a good laugh when he said, “his face is familiar, is he a model ma’am?” “I’ve been here before”, I said, “when I bought a picture frame a few months ago and you assisted me”. He smiled. Sometimes, I do enjoy conversing with sales clerks and cashiers while waiting for my turn to be served. And of course, I was elated that they find the pictures of Nate lovely. His face now occupies a major portion of our shelves where I display family pics. That’s how proud Nonna is. How can a little tyke brings so much joy and lots of smiles?
“It’s so curious: one can resist tears and ‘behave’ very well in the hardest hours of grief. But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window, or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed, or a letter slips from a drawer… and everything collapses. ” - Collete

Caught between the early morning light and the fading dawn
I sit and watch the stillness of the moment
Waiting for the sun to show its face
And I find peace….
They call it the great circle of life -
the endless longing to be
just being there
just feeling the peace in one’s soul
the beauty of imaginings
not just words
but the perpetual silence
that makes you dream more.

It is nice to wake up early and see the unfolding of a new day. Thank You for another day of seeing the dawn and witnessing another sunrise. You never fail to show me how much I am loved.
