“When I look upon your face, I see a gentle smile of ages past, I see a simple smile, a mother’s care, a mother’s stare, a mother’s special kind of love…”
I am the kind of person who doesn’t know how to express himself personally so I took this opportunity to write down my thoughts through this blog…
First of all, Happy Birthday, Nanay! Words are not enough to wholly express how much I love you, how much I appreciate all the love and care you have shown me. I cannot thank you enough for not giving up on me in spite of everything. I know I already owe you so much. You provided for everything and I couldn’t ask for more. The love and care you have shown over the years is beyond comparable.
I am sorry for what I have done, for everything, for all my shortcomings. I am very sorry I failed you and Inang. I am very sorry for not being the son you always wanted me to be. The life that you’ve always imagined and dreamed of for me is far different from what and where I am now. The fact that I might not be able to give back breaks my heart and makes me realize sometimes that I am a total failure.
In spite of all the pains that I’ve caused you, you have always been at my side, guiding me in every step of the way, helping me to mend the broken pieces, and never stopped showing me greater love, selfless and unconditional love, a true mother’s love.
I am truly blessed you are my mother!
I wish you all the best and may God bless you more! I love you, Nanay! Happy Birthday!
You will never know what you have and how much that means to you until you lose it, and once you lose it, you can never get it back. Sometimes good things really never last and goodbyes are inevitable, but we only part ways to meet again in the end.
It has been more than three years now since the last time I visited my other blog (from the other blog site), or even write something in it. The last time I logged into my blog, I felt like a total stranger. Maybe because some of the blogs that are in my reading list are no longer updated, or maybe the bloggers that I used to follow had not been active as well. Either way, I felt so lost in my own abode.
Hard as it may be, I decided to get over with my old blog and make a new one. This means that I have to let go of the friends that I had made in my few years of blogging, and to forego the blogs that I used to follow and read. It also means that I have to start all over again.
Starting a new blog in a whole new environment somehow challenges me because I have to go back to the basics. But don’t get me wrong about this. One of the things that I learned in life is to never stop learning. I do not know where this will lead me but I am actually excited to explore and be able to learn and discover something new out of this experience.
I will be blogging mostly about photography, books, movies, music and everything in between. From time to time, I will also share my experiences about being in a different world, a world where I have learned to embrace as my home away from home. On the sidelines, I will also be posting photos of my pets. And lastly, the main reason why I created this blog, I will be writing about Jesus, my faith and on being a Catholic, and why His Divine Mercy is the last strand of hope in the darkest moments of my life. Without Christ, I Am Nothing!
So there you go, hello world!
