Sunny Days

September 22, 2014

I’ve had a full day today, a really good day spent with the greatest friends any person can have.

People have often said that to have one friend for life is already a blessing. Well, consider me super blessed because I don’t just have one really great friend, I have several.

I spent lunch until the late afternoon hours with my ACE team friends. They are the bestest (if there ever was a word) people in the world. Everytime I hang out with them, I always have the best time. And yes, everytime we come together, all we ever do is talk.

Still, there’s something that could be said about people you connect with in an unexplainable level. I won’t say we are of the same wavelength because, hello, we’re definitely not.

I could never belong to the same wavelength as Marie, whose knowledge and experience as a professional trainer is beyond words. I love how I learn so many things from all her stories. And even those things I already know about, I still appreciate it coming from her because it means that I, at least, know something that someone like her also knows. She is so fun to be around. Even her subtle jabs don’t feel like jabs at all.

And then there’s Tessa, whose fierce sweetness is simply adorable. This girl who’s very brilliant in mathematics and follows the logical side of things is possibly the best kind of support system anyone can have. I’m not sure how many personal things she’s witnessed from every one of us, but yeah, she’s always a witness, always present, always stable.

There’ also Coleen, that sporty chick who can probably outrun all of our partners. Well traveled and well-read, she can also sing the high notes effortlessly. When I was new to the ACE team, I remember people saying that she was strict, intimidating and difficult to please. Boy, am I glad I got to her good side. She’s this loyal little princess who knows a little of evey freaking thing there is.

And our resident nice guy, Jayjay, who we all hope will find the love of his life and live happily ever after. All nice guys always get that, after all. This nice guy was blind to all our monkey business when he was our boss. Thank God for that. But he has since made up for his naivete regarding our secrets and dark sides.

Let’s not forget Janice, the one person we all make fun of because, well, she likes to make fun of herself too. But we all love her that way. Easily the prettiest out of all of us. And yes, my man, Jeffrey, is completely besotted with her. Lol.

Lastly, there are the partners. Come to think of it, since we all met, I think I’m the only one who hasn’t changed partners at all. It’s amazing to realize we’ve already known each other for quite some time now, considering we’ve seen partners come and go, new partners replacing the old ones in our tight little circle.

These are the only people I’d trust to talk about me behind my back. I trust them because I know that even if they talk about me, they’re not doing it maliciously or with the intent of making me look bad to other people. It’s just that as friends, we all know our strengths and weaknesses, and we all accept each other in spite of all those.

The day I joined the ACE team was a really lucky day for me because it led me to this path of having them as friends. Even to this day, when we all have different work lives, we still manage to come together every now and then. I’m absolutely blessed to have these people in my life.

Cool…

April 18, 2010

I want to congratulate my friend, Coleen Digman, for being a Wikipedia contributor. Aside from that, she is actively participating in marathons and runs for different causes.

I would absolutely love to be writing for Wikipedia or About.com. However, I don’t think I have the patience to become a better writer, so I can write good enough things for them. However, I am really proud of my friend, and I am happy for her. It is nice to be doing things that are not just for your personal accomplishment. It is also nice to have friends like her, intelligent, driven, and successful.

I guess I’m really just blessed when it comes to friends. Thank GOD for that! 🙂

I hope you guys out there are also lucky with your friends. If you are, take the time to reach them today and tell them how thankful you are for their friendship…. 🙂 xoxo

The Thank You

April 16, 2010

I would not have won this award if it had not been for all the other poet bloggers who supported me and thought that I deserved such an honor. I have to admit that all my works these days have been done in a rush because of the demands of work. However, one thing that I would never do is give you, my treasured friends, a poem that was not from the heart. That’s why even if I’d rush a poem, I always made sure that the poem still had heart, emotion, and sincerity. Those are the three things that I will never run out of and will always be able to give.

Life is always fun when it is shared with friends. I am very happy that I have made friends with so many talented and brilliant people in this community. It is not often that one person is blessed this much. Even if we only know each other through our blogs, we definitely share a huge part of ourselves to each other. The understanding and the acceptance that these people have given me has been more than cherished. I am really grateful because I got to meet these people. Thank heavens for them.

I would like to make a special mention to the person who has been an instrument to making us all meet each other and support each other. Thank you, Jingle, for being a blessing. I know I’ve said those lines before, but you are really such a blessing to everyone you’ve brought together. These things that you do will never be forgotten.

I would also like to congratulate the other poets who have won the award with me. You guys all rock! Your dedication to poetry is really inspiring. To the honorable mentions, you guys are indeed honorable. The quality of poetry that you write is beyond any intelligence. Let’s all celebrate each other’s achievement.

With all love,
