My Blog for my Mom!

A Pleasant Day!...

I am quite in a bit of hesitation writing a piece about my mom, I mean.., to all mothers in the world because I don't want to sound like a mama's boy in the process. I am a bigger than average filipino guy you know, and its kind of awkward for a grown up man to talk about the "things" regarding mommy, it somehow makes me feel I'm exposing men's weakness and soft spot. Quite unlikely a man's talk, but what the heck..I love all the MOMS who undergone and still undergoing sacrifices, walking extra, extra mile for their siblings in the name of love. That is why, I presume, great men existed and still existing because there are great women,--mothers to be specific, who lovingly nurtured and developed the well being of such greatness.

In my seminar hopping days...

I clearly recall the words of one speaker who uttered one proverb of the jews accordingly, "That God couldn't be everywhere therefore He made Mothers" We know its not true from the biblical point of view for God is Omnipresent. But the thing is...perhaps..,Jews came up with that idea due to their high regard of each mothers' role in the life of a human being. 'Cause good and godly mothers know that it really takes more blood and sweat to turn a house to home where children could find refuge, guidance, and strength that will enable them to discover and fulfill their purpose.

In my childhood days...

I saw the very process on how my mom stand and supported my father when his company went bankrupt. We're on ground zero and future is so bleak. I sometimes caught her shedding tears with much worries for our future. She usually gather us and utter these these words (that until now still ringing in my ears), "Anak ayokong magaya kayo sa akin, gusto kong makatapos kayo. May awa ang Diyos." In that dim situation of lackness, she never displayed any pessimism nor utter negative remarks and point to hopelessness. And it was that example which introduced me to what they call "FAITH" on SOMEONE SO BIG yet I don't see.

And Just Today...

As I looked back, I have realized a valedictorian revelation--that apart from God's love generally manifested thru every mother's cuddling and comforting care,...a man's strength has nothing to air. Truly true as it is..., A mothers' love is often a personification of God's Unconditional Perfect Love.
With all due respect to every hardworking smart man as myself :), "Though our work is from rising of sun to dawn, it's still incomparable to mother's work which is never done."

Kaya po...
Inay Mahal na mahal ko po kayo! I don't care kahit sabihin nila na mama's boy ako. Uulitin ko pa rin!!....Mahal na mahal ko po Kayo! Isusulat ko pa sa Blog ko 'to at ipa-publish in the world wide web.
Sapagkat para po sa akin, you are like a neverending song of comfort, happiness, and being. And when I sing out loud, I may sometimes forget the words but I will never-ever forget the tune.
And now...that my kids are grown, I somehow understand how much work and love it takes to raise and to keep a family together. The example of your strength, devotion and patience is now rippling through the generations. I can't Thank you enough!
You are the Creator's gift that one would want to cling forever. You have given much---beyond my measure.
And someday, when I stand before God,... I will never forget to thank Him everytime, for providing your presence in my life! I LOVE YOU INAY!

Happy Mother's day to all Great MOMS!

Exo 20:12
Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you!

Vote! and Vote Wisely with your Conscience.

'Been quite busy posting campaign materials in internet to express, relay and emphasize my sentiments and stand in line with my choice of candidate...sabi nga ng anak ko parang second fan page na ni President Eddie Villanueva and FB account ko...hehehe,


I got these email message story that I perceived to be so timely and sensible for posting again in my blog. It may somehow make us, be reminded to vote wisely for our future. Please read through...

The story goes like this....

"While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Philippine Senator was tragically hit by a car and died. His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.
"Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you." "No problem, just let me in," says the Senator.
"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."
"Really?, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven," says the Senator. "I'm sorry, but we have our rules." And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.
The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him. Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the Filipino people. They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.
Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go. Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises...The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's time to visit heaven."

So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.
"Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity." The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell."
So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.
The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders."I don't understand," stammers the Senator. "Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?"

The devil smiles at him and says, "Yesterday we were campaigning ...Today, you voted."

Please Note....
We have given lawyers, soldiers, actors, etc. a chance to serve the country. It is our prayer that our people give a pastor-economist-educator-freedom fighter, a man of character, competence, courage, and compassion, a chance to serve the country, too.---Atty. Lyndon P. Cana

Then Ponder this...

The Crowd of Millions who came willingly and sympathetic for the cause, without any "bayad o suhol" staying from daylight till night time. Unfortunately, they were not highlighted by media because Bro. EDDIE is not the candidate of some big and seemingly biased networks, aside from the fact that Bangon Pilipinas has no big budget to pay them.

This is the REAL unpaid and non-manipulated survey. And among the presidential candidates, only and ONLY BRO.EDDIE-who is a man of integrity, with no tracks of traditional moneyed politics and only beholden to GOD and Country, can motivate this overwhelming display of people's fervor and passionate love for GOD and our Country! A true leader indeed!!, worthy of your sacred vote.

"Gawin natin ang di pa nagagawa, Zero Corruption for the Next Six Years at babangon tayo."

Have a blessed voting day!

Deut. 30:19
"This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and yuor children may live."
