Give thanks...

You might be wondering why I am addicted to joining meme this month. To tell you the truth, I am enjoying the fact that I can travel the world through other people's blog especially those who always post photos and details about it on their blog. The new one that I joined in this week is the Thursday Thirteen. A meme that calls for 13 things that's in your mind. You can write whatever you have in mind at the moment.

For my first entry, I would like to give thanks to the Lord God;
  1. That my mother was healed through His power;
  2. That we are slowly moving on with our loss to my late brother;
  3. That we have food everyday;
  4. That no matter what problem comes our way, my husband and I choose not to argue about it;
  5. That my family was spared from the strong typhoon that hit Philippines (Still praying for those who are badly affected);
  6. That my children are healthy;
  7. That I learned blogging and meet good friends around the world;
  8. That my husband's tour in Korea is almost over;
  9. That we are going back to our home in 34 days;
  10. That we were given a chance to visit my family in the Philippines twice;
  11. That I have such a loving, understanding, and supportive husband;
  12. That through the help of the Navy, our travel expenses going to the Philippines when my brother died was paid for by the government; and lastly
  13. For providing us all our needs everyday, for giving us good friends and neighbors.

Thanks to the Alba Family for the hand-me-down clothing for my son.

  18. It's wonderful and praise worthy to have a grateful heart, thanking God for all the blessings you have received so far and even for the tragic ones. That shows a spiritual maturity that is far above the normal level. That shows your complete trust in God that all things work together for the good of those who loved Him who have been called according to His purpose. That is why, God will bless you more. Thanks for the inspiring post. God bless you always.

  19. sali din kaya ako nito..hehe..okay kasi may meme no lalo pag marami ang participants para maraming ma meet hehe..

    Rose binalik ko uli ang verifacation code sa iTravel kasi napasukan ako ng spam at porno daw yon sabi ni Sandee (Comedy Plus), buti na lang di ko na open kasi winarningan ako ni Sandee, so baka ibalik ko din ang VCode ng mom's place....pero na delete ko na si remixmax kasi may virus yong kanyang blog.

    Anyway, visit my blog and read the first part of my unbelievable life and death experience.. hehe

  20. What a wonderful post. The typhoon that hit the Philippines really caused a lot of damages and many people are suffering right now. I think this calls for us to care for our nature and not abuse it.
