had an “aaww…that was so sweet” moment last weekend. schatz slipped a card inside my (so-messy-you-will-get-lost-inside) bag for me to find. totally unexpected, out of the blue (cat, kaya nga “surprise”, di ba? motmot ka talaga paminsan-minsan…). the contents of the card? akin na lang un, for schatzi-cat’s eyes only. he is so sweet that the louvre ought to lock him up as an extraordinary specimen of a man. but then again, akin na lang sya; sorry, ayoko mag-share e. ^_^
schatz had a tummy ache last night. i was quite worried, baka kung ano na yun. nowadays, you can’t be too sure of what you eat or drink. anyway, the pain wasn’t at the right side so i was sure it wasn’t appedicitis or anything that affects organs in that side. turned out to be gas. schatz is ok now, thank goodness. ^_^ kasi kung hindi, di talaga ko papasok today!
last night, on my way back to the house (as opposed to “my home”…as in “351”), i heard strains of my most favorite song in the entire world, “woman” by john lennon. i wanted to stop right in the middle of the street just to finish the song, hehe. i know…sappy. but this song makes me so happy i’m a woman. i can’t explain how but listen to the song and you might understand. ^_~
my friends at the office were teasing at me because i’ve been listening to christian songs everyday since last week. “nasa retreat ka ba, cat??”. well, they can laugh all they want. this is how i de-stress while at work. there are times when stress really gets to you and you feel like punching your computer or your team mate or an overly demanding client and you just wanted to hand in your resignation and end all the frustration. but whenever i listen to my christian playlist, my mind would always become clearer and everything would come into perspective and i don’t feel like punching anyone or anything. ^_^
these songs are my prayers throughout the day as well as my own version of zen meditation. several months back, i tried doing zen but it wasn’t for me. same goes for moving meditation, and some other forms of meditation. sure, i felt relaxed afterwards but i also felt empty. i felt relaxed but uninspired and i realized i also needed to totally connect with the Lord for the experience to be complete; otherwise, the whole thing will be useless. so now, this is what i regularly do. it may or may not work for other people but it sure works for me…i get my work done and i satisfy my internal and external clients…at may oras pa mag-blog, hehe.
i like brenda…the first day we met, she told me “ay, mukha kang fresh grad”. hehe, happens all the time. ^_^ sensei thought i was i college! and this was during intermediate 2 japanese. ^_^
one of my bestest friends, racs, sent me this beautiful message last night:
an email message forwarded by (buti-na-lang-hindi-ako-india-team) m:
Why go to church?
A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. “I’ve gone for 30 years now,” he wrote, “and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them. So, I think I’m wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.” This started a real controversy in the “Letters to the Editor” column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher: I’ve been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this: They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!”
When you are DOWN to nothing….
God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment! “When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say, “Jesus, could you get that for me? Happiness is a journey, not a destination.
