I do.

There is never a spam comment left on my spam folder. I delete them immediately. I don’t even bother to read them most of the time. There are those though who  are so persistent – same people, sometimes the same messages too even if they are not exactly related to the post at hand.  I noticed they love going back to old posts  and commenting on them.  I was even alarmed one time when somebody said he copied my blog.  Gosh, my blog? Or just a post in it?  Good thing there is Akismet which always filters everything.

Yesterday, I received this message from an unknown number that said “you have a vary urgent and crucial information. please contact my email now for the details”. His/her  email address was attached.  Maybe in his/her haste, the word “very” was misspelled.  Of course I was not gullible enough to believe someone I don’t even know.  This is not the first time I received such. Most messages I received before told me that I won in a lottery or  a raffle draw.  What a laugh! How could you win if you haven’t even bought a ticket and you don’t know what it’s all about?   Have you been victims of  such modus operandi?

I hate spam mails. They all go to my DELETE folder every time I receive one.   There are those bloggers too who just link your post to their sites and when you check, all posts are  just that, links from other blogs.  Since I started blogging,  I discovered  a dot.com which completely copied  one of my earlier posts and just changed some of the words. I reported it to WordPress and blogged about the site.  It was really annoying.

Just attended the first Simbang Gabi (evening mass) earlier. What a lovely and touching homily.

Year 2017 is about to end. It’s barely two weeks to go before we’ll see  year 2018.

Some of us keep New Year resolutions religiously every year. I used to, maybe about three decades ago  but not anymore. I seldom follow it anyway. It’s just one of those things you think of when another year is over and a new year is about to start.

Things  change and priorities  change too. what we used to think as  something important is set aside for another one. What we used to  think we need to do is replaced  by something  more precious in our eyes.  Priorities are set but  plans sometimes go awry  in the process.   We like to think we are in control of our lives but we never know what  comes, those unexpected moments  (good or bad)  that change our direction.  You reach a point in life when you won’t need to  worry that much. You reach a point when you just watch what happens day  by day and  you try  to grasp what it means. Is it beneficial to you? Will it make you happy? Will it let you be at peace with yourself?

I hope and pray 2018 will be a good year for all of us, if not for the world, at least in our personal lives.  I hope 2018 would see us fulfilling life-long dreams and desires.  I hope  that in 2018, we’ll be more understanding and compassionate to our neighbors, friends and family members.  May love be there always.

Do you keep a New Year’s resolution?
