Year 2009's Footprints: Counting My Blessings

This is just a re-post, I entered a contest at Online Mommy's Corner and forgot to post this here. It's about Counting Your Blessings and here it goes.

Sorry, I have posted the wrong

I'd like to take this opportune time to thank God for all the things He gave to me this year 2009.

Year 2009 has ended and thinking about it made me look back to my past achievements and blessings. I always made sure to count my blessings before the end of the year but I made an early post (last Dec 13, 2009) because I joined Online Mommy's Corner Thanksgiving Contest. Well, since I do it every year so I took that opportunity, I might win something.

So what am I thankful of?
  1. I am not thankful of the 2009 recession that happened early this year which affected almost globally. Actually, it all started December 2007 but it was only realized by the whole world last December 2008 - okay, I'm not quite sure about it but that's what I've heard. Anyways, what I am thankful of is that where I currently work, here in Saudi Arabia we weren't affected big time. I am thankful because even when the world is at crisis, our company gave us an increase in our salary in order for us to afford the price hike in the market.
  2. I am always thankful to thank God for a great family I have. A loving and understand wife and cute and cuddly son who continues to grow.
  3. I am thankful because God continues to bless us and provide everything that we need. My wife got a great job offer where she gets to enjoy her work and was able to excel more on her career as a Dentist.
  4. I am thankful to God because he blessed us a great vacation in Hongkong. We really enjoyed our time there in Hongkong. I was able to fulfill one of my greatest dreams when I was a child, going to Disneyland. We also went to Ocean Park and lots of great places HK could ever offer. We'll probably go back there someday.
  5. I am grateful and thankful to God for giving me a chance to find new friends through blog and through PEBA.
  6. I am thankful to God that even during our crisis, He provided solutions to our problems.
  7. I am thankful to God for strengthening our marriage and continually give each of us better understanding. Giving us patience and making us better parents toward our son.

Thank God for everything.

Super busy ako lately. My back hurts like hell (tumatanda na kasi! hehe!). Actually, dahil ito sa sunod-sunod na okasyon, ilang lutuan din ang ginawa ko since mas sanay akong magluto ng pang-masa kesa sa misis ko (Salamat sa training ni Mommy sa aming carinderia). Nalamigan kasi yung likod ko kaya ayun, masakit pa rin till now pero medyo nawawala-wala na rin.

Meron pa kaming dalawang blessing, I'll reveal it on my next post. Masaya!

God is really good for showering His abundant blessings to us... and I am grateful for leading me know such inspiring blogs like your exists.

Good luck to your entry sa Online Mommy's Corner, and a blessed Tuesday to you and your family.

@jepoy - sapul ang theme song mo, pakinggan mo yung medyo classic - yung mga year 50s mas maganda version nila hehe.

@onlinemommy - i've added your site thanks for adding mine.

@pope - just one question, are you really the Pope? hehe! Thanks for finding my blog inspiring. Actually, this blog started as an archive for my literature stuffs that I wrote before - I love writing (in computer not with pen).

Now, this blog changed for good. The same way God changed a person when they accepted God. I have accepted God along time ago but I just had a change of heart - I am trying to have a heart where HE rules it. If God gave me a gift to reach people through the internet, then I'll use it.

My previous works are still here, some of it even contains profane words. I'm not hiding it so people could see the changes God did to me. It was for His glory and not mine.

God bless you all and thanks for visiting.
