Happy 6th Birthday ANdrea Lizette!
Mommy, Daddy and Sean love you very much…mwah!
I got a surprise gift (iPhone3GS) from daddyiou. He told me that he want to upgrade his iPhone and I said yes. Little did I know that it was for me.
He ordered it from Australia and it’s already officially unlocked by Apple. So thankful that Daddy God gave me a husband so loving, caring and thoughtful. And most of all very loyal and honest.
I remembered my 1st iPhone was given as a surprise gift for our 5th anniversary two years ago and now this one nearly on our seventh.
My little boy is hooked to some game applications like Balloonimals, Flight Control and Pocket God.
And what’s in my phone? I have the built in compass, 1Password, Airphones, Amazon.com,Ambiance,Autostitch (love this), bargain bin, Bump (for sharing with friends, literally just bump 2 iphones and there voila!), cartoon wars, chef, color splash, Cro-mag, Cyber Toy, Discovery, Doodle Fight, Ebay, Enigmo, Evernote, Facebook, Fairies Lite, FedEx Mobile,Fieldrunners, Genius, GLoball, Google, Grocery iQ,Habit Factor, Health Coach, I Dig It, iDisk, iFitness (hubs using this too), Jelly Car (my little boy’s fave too), Kindle, Mover+, MX Mayhem, NYTimes, Parapanic, Postman, PTO, Quizzing (for the kids), Ranch rush, Ressurection, Roadee, Sally’s Salon, Shazam, Sheep…Free, Skype, SpongeBob, touchPhysics, Turbo Subs, Tweetdeck, Twitterific,WhiteNoise,Wifi tark, YM,Zoo Sounds, 100 Pushups, Spider, TUAW and Things.
Now what more could I ask for? hehehe…
We always have this conversation, me and my husband to retire in a province and enjoy a laid back life with a house and a little farm of our own wherein we can get our vegetables and fruits for our everyday healthy food.
Little did I know that I got hooked with farming earlier than expected already (yes! we are not that old yet!) They are game applications in Facebook: the Farmville and Farmtown. Enjoying the plowing, planting seeds and harvesting. Not only fruits and vegetables but lots of animals too to harvest milk, shear fur from sheep and collect eggs. My kids, they also enjoy harvesting in my farm. Liking more FB than FS:)
When we were at friends home, I read an article of Karwa being included in the World Guinness Book of Records. Go Qatar!
“Qatar bagged yet another global first with the largest parade of Karwa buses, organised by Mowasalat, the public transport company, rolling into the Guinness World Records yesterday.
A 4.8km-long convoy of 325 Karwa school buses travelled a stretch of 5km on the Shahaniya-Dukhan highway, some 56km from Doha, breaking the existing record of 119 buses, created in Germany in January this year.”

The Universe Is A Giant Mirror
I’ve never forgotten that lesson in my life.
Life is a mirror. If I smile at the mirror, the mirror will smile back at me. If I frown, the mirror will frown back. I don’t know about you, but I’ll be very worried if I smile at the mirror and the mirror frowns back. Heebeejeebies.
The universe operates like a giant mirror. What I give, I receive. Most of what happens to me is simply a reflection of what I’ve been giving to the universe.
People ask me why my life is so profoundly blessed. One reason is because I’ve been giving.
Above are another excerpts from Bro. Bo Sanchez. You can read the whole story here: http://bosanchez.ph/want-more-miracles-be-generous/
Allow me to post another again from my readings. Since I subscribed to receive Bro Bo’s blog update I can’t contain it to my self only but too happy to share his soulfood. The writings in italics are my contribution to the continuous generosity of good people here on earth.
Giving for me is reminding me that I’m so blessed that’s why I can share some of my blessings to others especially to those who are in need.
The feeling of happiness is unequaled if you’re generous to others. And we want our kids to do the same and continue what we have started from the past until the present time.
The surge of joy to see that we make other people happy by sending their kids to school especially in college amidst all the global crisis. That indeed poverty is not a hindrance to attain success. How I wish that in every Filipino who goes out of the country to earn a living in abroad can extend more help to send kids to school. And I believe that what you have shared to others bounces back to you in hundred-folds.
I grew up learning from my parents from the examples that they had showed to us that sharing and sending some of our cousins to school is the best gift that they can give to them. And so when it’s my time to help a kid from my hubby’s province I never hesitated to offer a helping hand. And it started to one kid in elementary and I told myself how about one also from our town. Glad to say that she’s now in college and nearly she’ll be finished after 2 more years.
And as to my hubby, I’m very blessed that he’s molded and raised of being generous to others. Being good is deeply imprinted in his mind and in his heart.
Reaching out to my old and dear friends in times of their shortcomings even it’s not that huge huge amount of money and in any other ways to comfort them I think I have made my contribution. How about you? What have you done lately to help?
