Short and grateful blog this week. I try to focus on all we have now rather than look back at all that was lost. These are a few examples of what i thank God for:
Family- especially my sisters who are so proud about my career resurgence BUT will always be caring big sisters who will remind their bunso & all those working w/ me & for me to not just take care of me- but to also take their vitamins & try to eat healthy despite our punishing schedule.
The Texture app- available via US iTunes. I opted for the Premium Subscription: For just $9.99 a month there is such a varied array of magazines i love, ready to download for my reading pleasure every week for the weekly titles & every month for the other magazines. Excellent value for money especially for a reading lover like me.
The gift of technology to watch what we want, when we want... I love my Apple TV. I adore my Samsung 78 inch in our room, 88 inches downstairs because IFLIX (i watch Pretty Little Liars, House, 2 Broke Girls, The Mentalist, Prison Break, Lie To Me, Nikita, Quantico, and White Collar) and YouTube are just so clear because of their apps ready for downloading on our Smart TVs. (Yes, they also have the N streaming app built in- and i’m transparent- in their library i like House of Cards & The Crown.) i know- i am different, most people watch on their phones or tablets- but on a big screen is my preferred mode of viewing.
The consistent thoughtfulness of the Holly’s milk owners (they also own Carmen’s Best) for sending me practically weekly our favorite, Philippine fresh milk. It is their way, according to them, to express their lifelong gratitude for featuring them several years ago on Kris Tv & in their words- getting the Kris Seal of Approval.
The “alaga” that comes from my team- most especially those who are with me almost every day. Yes it’s a job w/ a healthy paycheck- but i know their dedication isn’t just because i’m their boss or client- my instinct already knows when “i’m just a job”- with them we’ve created a harmonious professional relationship that has solidified us as a united, supportive work family.
My sons who just make our home a sanctuary of peace, laughter, and love.
All of you who pray for my success and my good health.
Lastly- it’s just being content with the person i’ve become. Paraphrasing something i read: I love the me of today, because i fought so very hard to become her.
Happy Sunday to all. Just a last thought: let’s all please never forget the struggle others endured and RESPECT the courage they had for the democracy we enjoy now. ♥♥♥
