Forever Grateful

This first week of 2012 started in a delicious rush of events. I love it! ;-)

But, of course, as they say, before great things come into one's life, you should learn how to be grateful for the things that were - in more than ways than one - part of the beautiful puzzle pieces of your life's overall masterpiece.

And so, before I go on and tell you what I've been embracing these past few days, allow me to delightfully reminisce a few events that had brightened my days last year.

Of Awards And Successful Endeavors

Thank you to The PBA (The Philippine Blog Awards) 2011!

Yup! This simple blog of mine got recognized last year and was included among the Top 10 Finalists for the Personal/Diary Category Luzon Level. (This badge is also placed at the right hand corner of my blog.) It was really such an honor, and truly a joyous experience! That's why whenever I would remember this, it just makes me feel so elated! Thank you!

Of Love, Soul Mates, And Marriage... 

I would love to thank the prince and the princess for airing their lovely fairy-tale wedding. It is like every girl's dream, and it sure made the headlines. The event showed everyone that true partners usually find themselves to be together once again in the end. It was definitely such a lovely event to watch because the whole world sat in awe of the beauty of the ceremony, and sighed with delight and excitement for the royal couple. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding to the world! I love it so much!

Of Health And Well-being

Health-wise, everyone in my circle's doing great. And, for that, I gleefully shout, "Thank you!" Why? Because that simply means that everyone has the blessing of enjoying more days ahead. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Of Family And Friends

My relatives, siblings, mom and daughter - Thank you! Sure, everyone gets a bit crazy and all, but, in the end, everyone chooses to stay and stick it out with each other. Thank you so much! You are all heaven's gifts to me.

For friendships, that's also something that I am so grateful for. The number of friends I have - from one part of the globe to the other - have dramatically increased. I feel so blessed to have these people in my life. Thank you so much!

For this year, I find myself finishing off various projects and seeing my works featured in other sites such as these below:

Kuro-Kuro where you can see my my article, "The Dregs of Society: Are You One of Them?" where my poem, "The Beginnings of a Writer" has been submitted.

Thank you so much!

There are still more in store...

Isn't it such a lovely first week for the New Year? Oh, yes, it is! ;-) Thank you! ♥

Thanks for the words. Anyway, just made up my mind to transfer to a wordpress blog. I split my blog into two, i.e. Personal and literary. If you feel to go to, hover the cursor at the wod 'soon' in my last post. See you around Sitti. :)

Hello, Carl! I already went there. And I also left a comment there, too. You've got a nice blog. I added your site at my blog roll. Keep in touch!
