I know, i know, my year-end post is more than a week late. I actually waited for things to settle, recharge my batteries and op kors, finish first (well, almost) my paper backlog sa office. 🙂
My 2012 was totally epic.
Well, every year I do look back and summarize all the events that transpired, all the blessings God has generously bestowed upon us and I can’t help but notice that he keeps outdoing himself every year. Maraming Salamat po Ama.

When I came back (Jan 2), I immediately reported for duty and my body did as per routine and procedures. But my mind and heart felt like it was left home. Oo, homesick pa ko (hanggang ngayon lah).
It even came to the point of thinking to go home again, and this time for good na.
But then after a week, medyo kumalma na ko. I pondered and realized I need to stay in order to finish our projects na nakalinya, and that siempre, I have my responsibilities sa aming organization, naks.
Father God, 2012 was totally epic for me and my family. I could never thank you enough for everything, for all the blessings and challenges. I’m lifting everything to you and praying for your guidance as we tread another year. I pray to be able to see and follow as per your plans; to perform as per your Will. Amen.
P.S. Please tell our Dadidoods, that I’m doing my best to make him and mami proud. We miss him terribly and will always be in our hearts, remembered, treasured and loved.
And to 2013, let’s get it on…. 🙂
