Raffle Ticket…

During this time of season, raffle draws are in different malls and grocery store.  It is a way of thanking and giving back the blessings they have received from their customer.  It is like giving gifts to their customer in a form of raffle ticket.  That is what I have seen as I was roaming around different malls here in my city.  People are busy buying things and presents this season for their family, friends and love ones.  And the malls will be giving a raffle tickets to their shoppers.  Hoping to win and lucky enough to grab any of the prizes.

Tempting prizes awaits to the winner that makes the customers crazy over it.  Many shoppers have been given tickets after shopping.  Watching them putting information on the raffle tickets with a face of positive hopefuls.  I never tried it myself because I do not have that luck I guess. Every time I get a raffle ticket I always put my father, sister and brothers name on it.  To me joining raffle draws are like hitting the moon up above.  I wondered, why others are so lucky enough to get prizes to those raffles they have attended?  Luck is on their side I think.  I just wish that one day luck will come and be on my side.  Good luck everyone!

Grateful for your Help…

Blogging has been a part of my life for almost a year now. I did not expect I would come this far because I am not good in writing. I must say I am a trying hard writer. Writing and making poem has been my hobbies back when I was a student. Introduced by a friend to do this blogging thing.

In my one year of doing this blogging thing, I have gained friends from around the world. Friends that I have seen only those pictures they have posted. I was thinking to make a badge for my blog just like others have. A friend told me I have to pay someone to do it for me. I do not have budget for that right now and so I have to wait to get extra earning to have blog badge. God is really good because He gave to me a new found friend. A blogger like me named Jen of Jennyholic. She offered to do a badge for free. At first I can’t believe it because doing a badge is not easy and she is giving it for free. Last two days ago she sent to me the code for my blog badge. I am so happy and thankful to her for this favor. I am so grateful for your help Jen. I cannot pay you by cash or kind but I will pray for you and your success in this blogging field. I owe you one and I will never forget this wonderful thing you did for me. No words can express how grateful I am. I am enjoying my badge and I love it. Thanks Jen, God bless you more!

In life we do make a decision that will changed everything.  As much as we wanted to save both we cannot for we have to choose only one to save.  This is the reality of life that we sometimes uttered, is it fair?  Truly not all will be given to us because we have to choose and choose the one we think is better.

Our family is this kind of situation right now.  We have to choose between here and there.  So hard to make a decision that took us days of thinking what is the right thing to do.  After days of thinking about it, my father decided to give up our property in the province to save the house.  The house that we grow up, some got married and the house where the third generation of the family grows up.  It is a very tough decision for us to make because we are losing the valuable thing that my grandmother’s remembrance for my father.  The land that my father grows up.  Since we live far from my father’s province, we decided to sell the land and stay in our present house.  Family’s decision and we pray we are doing and making the right decision.  Though we might lost the property that my grandmother has left for my father, we win some because the house we presently residing will be ours forever. 

Today is the day of prayer because it is the feast of Immaculate Conception . Catholic people do celebrate today’s special occasion. It is Mother Mary’s birthday today. The Mother of all mothers around the world. A prayerful and loving Mother as elders used to tell us. As today is the holy day, let us encourage other to go to church attend a mass and pray. Happy Immaculate Conception day everyone!

 

Today I want to share to you my simple entry for Blue Monday meme. And here it is:
This is Gap Farming Resort, one of the oldest tourist spots here in our city. As you can see the picture itself represents what filipino people doing on their farm. The carabao in the farm and the farmer. The humble style and touch of this farm makes you appreciate how Filipinos are dedicated to their farm especially the farmers. Closer to nature ambiance that helps us relax and have peace and quiet moment. A good place to free us from the noisy city. I am a Filipino and I am proud to be one. cheers!
Hope you like my entry. Happy Blue Monday everyone!
