Gratitude – 25 Nov 2009

Posted on November 26, 2009


The Philippines does not celebrate Thanksgiving Day, but I’d like to take this opportunity to give some ‘thanks’ shout-outs to some people today. Also, ever since the ‘dark ages’, I’ve decided to cultivate in me the attitude of gratitude, as mentioned in the phenomenal book, The Secret. 🙂

Today, I am thankful for:

  • the beautiful 78 years in my lola’s life — and the countless ways she has enriched the lives of each of our family members. Many more years to come for her! I sure want her to see my own (five, haha) children with Schatz. Haha.
  • my friend and colleague, Cathy, for going the extra mile again for me – because of her, I can go on vacation again. Woot!
  • my never-before-seen colleague Lisa for the patience and extra hard work — you’re so nice!
  • my sister Aya for the senseless Facebook comment that really made me smile — I miss you so much, panget 😀
  • Mein Schatz for something he said to me today that made our healing go fast forward, and for calling me up at the office before sleeping. I love hearing his voice last at the end of each day, and today is no exception. ❤
