Who is not fond of Pope John Paul II specially if you are a Catholic born and an 80s baby. He is called as "The Pope of the Youth" for initiating World Youth Day, I can still remember the WYD in 1995 and that records of around 4 million people gathered for its final Mass and its song "Tell The World of His Love" we are all ecstatic seeing him. He takes the heart of the world with his natural charisma and youthful spirit.
For this generation we have new one, Pope Francis, he was just elected 13th of March this year and known for his humble nature and simple lifestyle. He is loved by the youth for his patience and kindness. While he condemns homosexual acts he got the human understanding to gay people and quoting him saying "If a person is gay and seeks God and has a goodwill, who am I to judge them?"
They are icons, vicar of Jesus Christ, Supreme Head of Catholic Church here on earth, a living epitome of sanctity and virtue.
My 2012 and 2013 can be sum up to these words ASPIRE, PURSUE, DREAM, ON, WORK HARD, PRAY HARDER and PURE BLESSING. I feel so blessed to have granted all the blessings that I ask for and so I thank the people behind these blessings and most of all Bossing, it was always true that God won't give you things you can't handle.
Learning that I am pregnant leads me to choose to go home and just be a mother, but I was not given the permission too, my boss didn't accept my resignation twice and I thank him for that.
Leaving my children to work abroad again is the hardest thing, and I am thankful I surpassed that day at the Airport.
Taking chances is one thing I am afraid off, good thing I love my children more than anything else and I can say I have done everything just to have them beside me.
And as they say the rest is a history, they have been here with us for three months now and we are still adjusting. It will not be easy, but I know we can get through it day by day. People do ask if until when are we planning to stay here, sorry folks I don't know the answer as well.
Its been a while.... for now let me share to you this open letter to my first born who is about to achieve a new milestone on his early life.
Vividly I can still picture our first meeting, every pain and fear I had after 23 hours of induce labor had gone after seeing you. My crybaby, even from the start nobody can force you to do something out of your will.
Little by little you develop and discover things by yourself. Your face lights up in every successful bravery and little tears show with every failed attempt, if only I could take out the pain, but those aches and bruises will bring out a better person in you. Your personality and attitude starts to show and I am glad that you are an affectionate and loving child and I hope you retain it until you mature.
I pray that as you grew older you learn things more than I do, you achieve life as you aspire it to be. But for now I am very much please that you are a happy and active kid, ABC and 123 can still wait for your attention you are just starting enjoy what life has to offer. You will always be my pride, my joy and my little baby I named James Levi.
