What Am I Grateful For?

by - 29 December

I can't believe that 2014 is about to end, two more days and we'll be welcoming 2015. I have to say that this year, so far is one of the best years of my life. I have so much to be thankful for and so many to be thankful of. First, let me say thank you to one of the kindest blogger I've met not just virtually but personally as well. Thank You Janine of Lime & Life not just for tagging me but as well as for being so friendly and for being so kind to me. ^_^ Thank You! 

1. GOD

I know that I have so many mistakes over the past years and I have caused him so much pain and I'm really sorry for that. Still, He showered me with so much love, with so many blessings and He had given me the best gift of all time, My Baby Doll.  I'm always grateful for him, because without him, We are Nothing. Thank You So Much Papa God, for all the things you've done for us! :)


I was born and raise up with right values and good moral. My life isn't perfect, I have so many heartaches and downfall but then they never left me alone. Instead, they accepted my flaws and embrace me during my darkest moments. I don't know what would I be and where would I be without them. Having a great parents and wonderful brothers and sisters around made my life more colorful. Truly, they are my wealth. 


I know that most of us had their stories, having a best friend and losing them is one the hurtful moments in our lives. I had a best friend back then, we used to call each other as gurlfriend, but things had changed. I don't know what happened exactly but it was her choice. Putting an end to the bond that we both take good care and nourished was very painful. I hope you can read this, because God knows I tried, I've reached out but then you never look back. You are still here, inside my heart, and you will never be erased. Thank You still, for the 8 years of friendship. For my newly found Best friend, Yes, God had given me this wonderful girl who's been there for me all through out my journey. I met her last 2012, and from then on we became good, and best of friends. We do have misunderstandings but we make sure that at the end of the day, we were able to fix it. Thank You crazy Chrissie for sticking around! Thank you for being there for my Baby Doll as well. Cheers for more years!:) 


From being pregnant up to giving birth, I always thank God for giving me Good Health. Especially now that I have my baby doll with me, sometimes I got no sleep because I have to make sure that she had her milk and check her diaper from time to time. Then the following day, I have to work for our living. I sure gets tired but for my baby I have to be strong. 


Being a Single Mom is really a tough job. You have to make sure that you provide your baby's basic needs. I don't really have a big salary, but still, having a good job with some basic allowance and bonuses is something to be thankful for. I was able to provide not just my baby's basic needs but as well as helping my family on paying our bills. 


I know I'm not perfect, and I have my flaws and I accept it whole heartily. I know for a fact that I have some haters and I Thank them for that. It only means I was recognized and was envied. Thank You for making me stronger and for making me realized that I'm way better than you are. I always wish you would find an inner peace and happiness someday. :)


Gee! I am out of words, Thank You is not even enough on how happy I am for every comment you left on my blog. For all the wonderful and inspiring words you left me. My blogging journey would be a whole lot different without you guys! I know that I have so many backlogs and hiatus this year but you never left and I am very grateful for that. You all inspire me to blog even more. Cheers for more years! :)


When I started working on a government firm, I felt I was too young back then. I was assigned at different office before where all of their eyes was on me. It's so hard to work under pressure and with those kind of people. I understand that they were way older than me and that they haven't adapt the new way of living. But when I was transferred in a different department everything changed. People here are very jolly, feeling young and easy to get along with. They are like an older brother and sister to me. Having these kind of people around made my job easier and my life a lot more happier! 


Waking up each day, being surrounded by wonderful people who loves and supports you made your life worth living for. :)


The highlight of my 2014 was giving birth to my little doll. It brings HAPPINESS, CONTENTMENT and JOY that I never felt before. It's a magical experience that made me cry for joy!That magical moment..
 Seeing her for the very first time at the delivery room made me forgot all the pain I felt physically and mentally. Her arrival changed me to become a better me, a better daughter, a better sister and a better Mom I could ever be.

My 2014 was indeed a memorable year for me, It was never easy but I'm so proud that I've overcome all the challenges that I've encountered. I have learned so many things in life that made me A Better Version of Me. Stronger, Wiser, Fiercer and Bolder! :)
