my first love…

This morning I was able to plant some euphorbias on some small pots in our mini- garden(since our garden is just “mini” might as well use “small” pots^^)…We used to have a bigger space to plant trees and herbs but now we only have a very limited space….And I truly miss gardening….It was actually my first love…..I remember the time when I was really consumed in doing this activity that I won’t mind not eating the whole day and the next day I got sick:)…..Ofcourse now I won’t do that anymore^_~”Bawal magkasakit!!!!”(Avoid getting sick because it costs too much being in the hospital nowadays)….Whatever we do it’s better that we do them in moderation….although when we were younger we don’t mind right?…but when we get older we do mind:)…..

.I got a picture of a euphorbia on google images and I wanna share it with you^^(although I know you are already familiar with them esp. us Pinoys yet I just find the picture so attractive:)…..and also I translated a poem of “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer in Tagalog….


Mga Punungkahoy

Makakakita pa kaya ako
ng ‘sang tulang ‘singganda ng puno…
“Sang punong ang mga uhaw na ugat,
sa tamis na daloy ng tubig ay nakayakap…..

Puno na sa Diyos ay tumitingin
at itinataas ang mga dahon sa pananalangin,
Puno na kung sa tag-araw
ay napapalibutan ng mga ibong, wari’y umaapaw….

Sa kanyang sinapupuna’y lamig ay nahimlay,
binahaginan pa ng ulang walang humpay….
Mga tula’y nakakaya ng ‘sang tulad kong dukha
ngunit Diyos lamang, ang sa puno’y makagagawa….

Lovely trees

TREES

by: Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918)

    • THINK that I shall never see
      A poem lovely as a tree.
      A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
      Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
      A tree that looks at God all day,
      And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
      A tree that may in Summer wear
      A nest of robins in her hair;
      Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
      Who intimately lives with rain.
      Poems are made by fools like me,
      But only God can make a tree.

Today is a blessing…

Today is a blessing again….I have received lots of blessings for the past years until now….I should be happy….and I am…

I thought of some good things I’ve done and those naughty^^ ones as well….Somehow I want to keep those good things in my heart…..

As I grew older I notice that I am learning to appreciate myself more and all the efforts I’ve done in the past…..Maybe it’s because of how people see us and appreciate us or how we’ve shared our lives with them and made them happy…..I see how people cling to goodness no matter how complicated situations have been in their lives….in our lives…..Yes….we always change for the better in the end…..We may be on the wrong side of the road for quite some time but later on we realize our efforts to do good will always prevail….That’s how we see life….we see people….We never fail to understand others because that’s how we really see ourselves…..We knew people are like us….goodness dwell in those hearts of ours….Deep inside we only wanted what’s best for others…..

And today is a blessing again…yes.. coz it’s my birthday….hoping that I could make other people happy in the simple things I do….from now and for the coming years to come….I also thank God for this day….and I thank everyone who have shared their lives with someone like me….

This lady is truly an inspiration. She always sees the good in everything, no matter how hard things are or even seem to be. She has been a great source of encouragement to me and for that I am truly honored to be a part of her community. Her zest and love for life are simple but done with such passion. She always has a kind word, comforting thought, and is always there when for whatever the reason. I can relate to her in so many ways. She stands strong in her beliefs, and always looks at things with an open heart and mind. She never forgets where she come from, the hardships and struggles just to get to where she is at today. You have a gift and I thank you for sharing it with us. May God bless and keep you always.
