Tuesday Thankfulness#4:Stranger's Knocked





It’s TT again and its time for me to thanks the lady who had given birth an angel. It was three (3) years ago; a lady named Eugene Echavez was a very special stranger who knocked in our door carried with her a very cute angel. I was surprised when she looked for me and she asked me if I’d willing to accept the one she carried. I did not felt hesitated, I accepted the baby heartily with my opened arms. When we talked, I'll ask her what she needs, and she replied that she had nothing but only a picture of his son.
John Rey when he is 2 months old.

This is the word that she leaves for me.

My son is your son and he is yours forever.

I answered her,

Thank you so much, but he is your son, and you are free to visit him anytime if you want. I am poor but I’ll try my best to raise him with my love, and work hard so I can support his needs until he finish his studies. If ever you became rich, don’t forget to find and look for your son, I am willing to give him back to you though it is difficult and hurtful for me, your son was an angel that someday he long to embrace his real parents.

John Rey's (a.k.a. Ken-ken) 3rd year Birthday (August 8, 2010)

Then I gave her only P50.00 for her fare back in her home, I know how difficult with her but she had no choice but to leave her son with me with her full trust. I was thankful for her because she listened in her heart to stopped and knocked in our door and she had trust to hand over the wonderful gift she carried.

I can't stop my heart to love my son. He is a real sweet and lovely.

For you Eugene, while I am writing this, I am in my deep emotion for thanking you. Your son is in a good hand and as I promised that the whole family and I share our love, patience, care and affection to John Rey. And please whenever you are, I was looking for you to remind you to visit him. I tried to teach him to become good and have respect with you. I always told him that if he will start his study, he would think his good future and find you in a perfect time and place. I always told him that you love him so much.

My two Angels in my life that I love most.

Thank you so much Eugene and I hope and pray that you had already a good and peaceful life. Your son is a precious angel who had given us the unexplainable joy and happiness in our heart. I really love him and he is truly a very special son of mine.

This is A Maiden’s Testimony.

A Fantabulous Day


It's been quite long since I've got a day off from work. That means no endless paper works, allowance and free internet connection (hehehehe).. But at least, I was able to relax myself for a little while. Me and my daughter is currently enjoying our summer together by bonding inside the kitchen. We've been cooking foods, tons of them I might say.. I've made some roti, it's an indian dish, with a curry and mushroom dip- which is my favorite ever since I came from Malaysia. We also made pancakes and mango float for dessert and of course no one can forget the ice cream. My daughter bought a two in one ice cream which is a double dutch and rocky road-flavored. We just finished swallowing it all up a while ago while talking about some silly stories. I've never felt this big and fat (I can't believe I used those words) before.. But hey, it's the best experience ever. Having to eat everything you like to your hearts content is fantabulously good. Better, I might say.. Well, aside from sleeping and eating, we also enganged ourselves to watching movies. We're currently watching My Princess, it's a korean drama, and it got me all hooked up (My daughter already finished it on youtube.. she's such an addict when it comes to korean dramas).. My sweet and angelic daughter bought a movie entitled "Secret Garden," and we're going to watch it until tomorrow. That means, more fun and more food. All I can say is I just had a fantabulous day today and this is a maiden's testimony.

Tuesday Thankfulness#3: My angel Lollii

I want to say thank you to my daughter's creativeness and sweetness. She spent her vacation to my sister at Digos City last week. And before she back home she sent me the above notes. I love all the things she wrote above except the second of the last note. When she back home, we went to the church first, since it's Sunday, then we went to her favorite pizza restaurant. After we eat, were having a good time in the mall then we decided to spent one hour in the Music City.


After our bonding, she thanks me for having a great time with each other. We actually, save some time for bonding every month, but, since we are both busy we decided to find some another day.

We enjoyed our company, and we are more sweeter than before. I am so thankful because my daughter lollii is sweet. She is also loving, caring, thoughtful and God fearing. I am so blessed because God gave me an angel in my life. Above all, I want to thank God for being there with us in our heart who is our protector and provider. God is good all the time. He gives us a peaceful life which we are now enjoying.

This is A Maiden's Testimoy's Tuesday Thankfulness, thank you so much and enjoy reading.

Nostalgia # 10: Where is your Home?

Where is your home? Some of us are fortunate to have called home. Some are blessed because they have a family who loved them and provided everything they need. Some are borne rich and all the luxuries are there.

But some are not. These children are unfortunate to have home. We called them an orphaned. This is a place of children who became the victim of irresponsible parents. Who was to blame? The children who never know everything about future? Or those parents who have a hardened heart that ignore their kids. How many parents, woman, lady and young parents who have misfortune and subjectively repeated.

Every one of us has a responsibility of our own life. If we grown up and become matured we had already know what is wrong and good for us and for our love ones. We have emotions that have a big part in every decision we have. We have a heart that feels every emotion we have every time we decide. We have brains that help us to fix on. Are you agreeing? Whatever, that are the way that I express my feelings about these things.

Luckily, I survived in my case when some unexpected event in my life happened. God helped me through. I love my daughter and she is my life and inspiration, I took her with all my care, love and affection. I am poor but I strives to give her a good life. To let her experience how happy to have a life despite the odds we’ve experience. We have no perfect life, but through a good heart we have, we can handle a beautiful, peaceful and joyful life we want to be. Life is beautiful if we know how to appreciate it.

Anyways, pictures below are some of our school activities when I was schooling. My groups choose to visit orphaned kids and we made some contributions to feeds them and invited a pastor to helped us entertained the kids.

We played with them and talked with them. After, some activities, we contributed some give away, such as: clothes, milk, soap, notebook, pencil, crayons and etc. Heartily, we are so much touched and cried because of their situation. But, I can still say that these orphaned kids are still lucky to have place to comfort them. Thanks for the staffs of Gemma’s Orphanage who gave us an opportunity to visit this kids who also touched our life.



The kids have freedom to be happy. In this picture, we let them to sing with us.
dance with us.


They love to listen our stories.


They love the foods we prepared.

They are happy to play with us.

And the whole group, are happy too, because our moments with the kids are the big part that we shared with them. We are too lucky because of this kids they touched our heart and they gave us more understanding about their life.

Thank you so much for your time reading A Maiden’s Testimony.

Tuesday Thankfulness#3: It's all about contest

I received the invitation from this smart and pretty lady who celebrating the 3rd year blogoversary of her blog. I described her as an intelligent, creative and talented persona. She is the lady who owns the crown of famous because of her thought and idea of writing. I appreciated and praised the creativeness of her writing and the truthfulness of every word is highly valued. Through her, the Maiden’s Testimony was borne.

She didn’t stopped to encourage me to be part in the blogosphere, which is now the reason why I didn’t stopped to learn and explore in my second world .

I didn’t know about blog and I am not interested about it. I have no talent in writing, that’s what I insisted every time she shared a positive things about blog. I said to myself, I have nothing to prove with myself because I considered me as a dump. But, she proved me that I was wrong. And even me, I can’t believe that I had a talent to write.

How I can forget my entry that had a fifth place in her 1st blogosversary 2 years ago, entitled “Blog To World, blog for you and Me” contest with 26 participants. I tell you, this was the challenging part of those who participated in that contest..hahahahha!!! I remember, I met a lot of virtual friends, just like, Windy, Zorlone, Twinks, Twerlyn, Recel, Shydub, Cacai, Allena, David Funk and Bill. And I remember my first commenter in that contest was Mariuca. Why the contest was very challenging? Because, every participants need to campaign and vote in your entry. Ha!ha!ha!..I swallowed my shyness, I campaigned and encouraged my readers why they vote for me. If you didn’t read my piece you can click it here…"Blog to the World, blog for you and me"

Anyways, the one that I am describing here is the one who celebrating her 3rd year blogoversary: Gravatar Contest, the one we called “Lainy” borne by the name “lainybelle” who owns the Lainy’s Musings, Our Journey to forever, Kuerdas and The Certfied Fashionable Chic this is for you dear friend and thank you so much for being my mentor. A maiden’s testimony will not be borne if I didn't listen to your encouragement. Thank you also for the great support and positive evaluation of my writings..hahahahah…though I write a lot of wrong grammar, you still there who appreciated it. Because of you, I have now a 2nd world, my virtual world!

Music Monday #9:"Lost" by Michael Buble`

Are you Lost? No, you are not lost. By this song "Lost" of Michael Buble` is a very emotional song that touch your heart.

I believed that no one is lost. We are abound to be happy whatever difficulties, problems, and failures that we experienced in our life. We are be thankful that through the journey of life we had able to reach our goals and dreams. I'm sure the path that we are entering is not empty because something is waiting for us. Whatever hindrance in our way, above all, we are not get lost.




"Lost"

I can't believe it's over
I watched the whole thing fall
And I never saw the writing that was on the wall
If I'd only knew
The days were slipping past
That the good things never last
That you were crying

Summer turned to winter
And the snow it turned to rain
And the rain turned into tears upon your face
I hardly recognized the girl you are today
And god I hope it's not too late
It's not too late
'Cause you are not alone
I'm always there with you
And we'll get lost together
Till the light comes pouring through
'Cause when you feel like you're done
And the darkness has won
Babe, you're not lost
When your worlds crashing down
And you can't bear the thought
I said, babe, you're not lost

Life can show no mercy
It can tear your soul apart
It can make you feel like you've gone crazy
But you're not
Things have seem to changed
There's one thing that's still the same
In my heart you have remained
And we can fly fly fly away

'Cause you are not alone
And I am there with you
And we'll get lost together
Till the light comes pouring through
'Cause when you feel like you're done
And the darkness has won
Babe, you're not lost
When the worlds crashing down
And you can not bear the cross
I said, baby, you're not lost
I said, baby, you're not lost
I said, baby, you're not lost
I said, baby, you're not lost

Tuesday Thankfulness#2: Genuine Heart




My daughter's lappy is 2 months and 25 days old. I was so much thankful because of the goodness of this man's heart. He is from Johor Baru, a man who became a good friend. He was introduced to me by my friend Lainy.

From then, he did not stop helping me. Actually, he is the one who made lollii-pii's blog by paying the domain in his own webhost.

Aside from that, he offered about the educational insurance for john rey, being my son's godfather, or maybe i called him Fairy Father. I am so much touched of the kindness he shared with us when I and JT visited him last January to get the gift that I bought from him.

Now, it is time for me to thank this man because of his kindness and genuine heart. I also want to thank more because of his time he spent with us. The man that I am describing is the man who helped lainy in herblog contest.

Windy, thank you so much for everything and for the kindness that you had shared with us. All of it were highly appreciated. Thank you WInDY!! you're the man!!
