I Cried Many Times.

 

A movie that will ruin your mascara big time. But it’s worth it!

 

I’ve been wanting to watch this movie since after I watched its trailer. And so, on Sunday, 15th October, mom and I finally got to watch the movie. I’m so excited to share my thoughts about this film, I knew I will be writing a post about it because I’ve already sense it. True enough its a good movie to write about one. For those who haven’t, do not worry because I will not be a spoiler of the movie in this post.

Obvious enough that the movie is about family, and I’m sure everyone will be able to relate to the movie one way or another.  You know, at some situations in the movie, I see myself in each characters. I also felt that the story was very personal, as if it was made based on our story. Ronaldo Valdez (in the movie), was like my grandfather (who passed away last month), white haired, happy man.. so, I can relate, and I could see him in his character. He was on my mind all throughout the movie. In addition, my grandmother died before my grandpa, so it is most probably the reason why my tears are also too shallow for this kind of film.

When the movie started rolling, and complications between the family shows, I found myself already teary eyed. I don’t know but this movie touched me by the heart I couldn’t imagine. My mom on the other hand, were fine, I didn’t see her wipe any tears at all, but me, oh~ my heart broke many times with this movie.

Few of the reasons why I cried.

  • I cried.. because it reminded me that I didn’t have at least Seven Sundays with my grandmother and grandfather before they bid goodbye.
  • I cried.. because I could’ve spent more time, or at the least Seven Sundays with them, and make those counts, but I didn’t.
  • I cried because I see myself with his children that they are too busy growing up and fixing their own lives, forgetting they are also growing old.
  • I cried because as much as we like to stay connected with our roots, as humans, we are somehow destined to fall to the pitfall of this earth.
  • I cried…  because I remembered my eldest brother (he passed away 9years ago) with the eldest character in the film portrayed by Aga Muhlach. When I was young, I thought my brother looks like him because they have the same body built and fashion (more of outfit style) statement. I was so close to him, and I loved him so much.
  • I cried… because I was jealous with the characters in the sense of, they are simply a normal family. My family was also the same before my eldest brother, grandmother, and grandfather died. I felt my life was more complete when I had them.
  • I cried because I felt sorry for him (the father), that he had struggles gathering all his children so they could spend more time with each other, when he shouldn’t beg for it in the first place.

You can say though that you may know the majority of the story because usually movie trailers here in the Philippines would give all the highlights of the movie, and that you’ll watch it just to see how the story gets connected. But this film has more twists and stories to tell!

I’m proud of this movie, and I hope to see a lot of this kind. It brought some of the deep truths about family, as well as how wonderful it is to have people we call ..

FAMILY.

Revelation Thursday: I Already Have Babies

Today’s entry of mine will be very personal, sensitive and extra special, because as you all read from the title this will be about a revelation. Yes, I already have babies! So without any more fuss, I am sharing their pics from the time I thought they can handle to pose for one.

Aren’t they the cutest? I’m one proud momma here to be able to raise them from seedlings to what they are right now. By the way, it is cherry tomatoes, I still feel bad though for my babies on 2nd tray because I haven’t transferred them in pots, but don’t worry my children I will do so on Sunday, and momma won’t be breaking her promise. 🙂

So, where did I get the idea to grow cherry tomatoes? Continue reading

What I Always Pray To God.

I always pray to God, and my way of sending my prayers is thru writing to Him. I thought that the journal that I have, is for me to document the things that happens to me, so I will be reminded of the events that happened in my life, but as I was reading them last night I realise that it is actually my prayer to God. All of my writings starts with me asking God how his day went, and hoping it went very well, then my turn on how my day went, the lessons I learned and ends with a prayer for my family.

I don’t end my writings without asking God for guidance and safety for my family, especially my loved ones that are far away from me like my Brother Bear, Mom,  Kris, Kris family, and my friends.  I once read that “For all we know, our blessings are not the fruits of our prayer alone, but those of another praying for us.” And I agree, that’s why I always try to make it to a point not to forget to mention in my prayers that they too stay faithful with God, and Continue reading

7 Years with WordPress. Wooh!

7 Years With WordPress

9 months back since my last blog post, and probably 9 months ago too since I last opened this account, so it was a happy surprise to see this . Thank you WordPress indeed!

So, what brought me here? I don’t know, but I am certain that I miss blogging. No, I didn’t stop writing because I still do, in my journal (Not often as well, but I still do). So… I think everything is okay.  Same look and feel of WordPress, and same kind of feeling when I write a post (Like I do not know anymore how to blog). It kind of makes me feel nostalgic hehe..

When the time is right, posts from mine will come flooding your emails. Right now, I am just happy to share this celebration with you all. Ciao

Prayer Of A Friend

Dear Lord,

Thank you for the lives of my friends. Thank you for everything that they are and for all their gifts and talents. I thank you for the many things that they have given to others and for all the kindness that they have shown me.

Lord, I pray that forgiveness reigns in our lives. I pray that Madel would find in her heart to forgive Joyce for everything that she may have done wrong, and so kept her from not enjoying life to the fullest. I also made some mistakes in our friendship and my only wish is that they may forgive me too. Lord I pray that all of Madel’s questions that were left unanswered, may you please show her that the answers are found in her own heart. She is an amazing woman and I love her to bits, and I am certain that yaye and joyce feel the same way too towards her.

As friends, we are willing to support and be patient on her upon taking that step to forgive everyone that she had done wrongly, and everyone that have caused her trouble. Lord, you have planted in our hearts only kindness, please guide us especially Madel to use this powerful weapon to good use and purpose. By this, I know you will open more doors of happiness and peace that she may have been waiting for a long time.

Lord, bless my friends and their families which are the source of their strengths. May your presence be their light and guide that they would honor when they take their everyday battles in life.

Lord, you know their needs like no one else knows. You know the ones that have secret pain, worries, and fears. I pray that you comfort them and bless them with your strength and restore their hope. I don’t know all of the challenges that they are facing right now, but you know everything. You hear what their hearts are saying, may you grant them with peace of mind to continue with their life and enjoy your creation to the fullest.

Lord, thank you for the assurance of good life when we turn our troubles unto you. Thank you for always guiding us in silence even though we sometimes forget to call on you, and tried to solve our problems on our own. Please forgive us all.

Lord, I also pray that Joyce’s journey on moving on be fulfilled, because I know that she deserves to be happy. She has always been a wonderful person and everyone would agree that it’s going to be different when she is not around. She has always been the most supportive person I have ever known and we will always and forever be glad to come to know her.

Thank you for bringing us all together as friends and please bring us more closer than before. I know this is your will and we are just thankful for everything that you’ve provided us.

I also pray for our friend Khrisna, she may not know how much we love her more than she loves us, but we will always be grateful for her life. She may have the most challenging past amongst us, but it didn’t give her the reason to give up. We are so looking at her as an inspiration that no matter what life gives us, we make something good out of it. We only hope that her life continuous to grow with your presence in her heart and may she continue to be the funniest person in our friendship, because everyone needs a little laugh when situations get tough.

Lastly, I come to you dear Lord to comfort and keep my friends Madel, Joyce and Khrisna close to you. Instill in us your loyal spirit. Show us how to listen deeply, forgive truthfully, and pray wholeheartedly with an open heart. In my love for my friends Lord, I ask you to intervene with our troubled hearts and bring peace to it.

Thank you for the gift of friendship, thank you for the gift of wonderful people in the forms of Madel, Joyce, and Khrisna. We have inspired each other, challenge each other, stretch each other’s patience, and encourage each other one way or another. I pray that we may not forget all these wonderful memories we gave each other.

In Jesus name I pray, Amen. :-* :-* :-*

Oh! The People You Meet..

I am one thankful lady here knowing that I’ve met many amazing people in my life. I’ve met beautiful people in the past couple of years and I am so thankful for their lives. I can’t thank God enough for putting them in my life. I am just overwhelmed tonight that I just can’t help but say it out loud for the world to know. I am just so grateful!! I do not know what would my life be without them, seriously!

A reminder of God’s greatest love to me. Placing the best people in the whole world in my life, and the most amazing ones. Oh, how blessed and thankful I am to have met these people.

Are You Like Me? Bad In Remembering Passwords?

I have quite a lot of sites that I’m keeping, a couple of blogs and email accounts and some other sites that I signed up for. Do you also get caught up in a moment where you’ve been staring the login page for a while because you can’t remember your password? It happens all the time with me, and even with my laptop password. What I did though was placed in one file all my usernames and passwords which I keep on my google drive or here in my laptop, obviously the problem there was how can I access that file when I don’t even remember my computer’s password to access it?

Oh, the dilemma of people who are forgetful.. like me 😐
