I have not been updating my blog and I missed opportunities to share the good things and blessings that I received. I tend to forget about them so now, even if for a short post, I will mention the trinkets to remember so that when I get older and if I decide to make this blog of mine into a book, I will be able to read or pass on the good memories.
My Starbucks mug - my sister gave it to me last 2011 and I've been using it ever since. It was always with me in my meetings and conference calls. It kept me warm in winters while walking on the streets of Toronto and while waiting for the bus. It was not just was a vessel to my favorite drink. It was my constant companion and I feel sad that it finally gave in and broke. I remember my director boss told me that she gave that day I was meeting her the deadline that if no one will claim the mug from her, she will take it, because there was no design like that in Toronto. I told her that I got it from the Philippines and it has a sentimental value to me because my sister gave it to me. It felt like I got reunited with an old friend. LOL, crazy me.
Slow Down - this was the favorite comment of my driving instructor, especially when I am turning. I need to slow down. Now I come to realize that the same word is to be applied when we are making decisions, when we are angry or making plans. We need to slow down and think and analyze more before turning or making the next move. Even if the world is at fast pace, we should be slowing down.
The word RESTFUL - my son Alexus gave me a present today and the word restful was R of the word MOTHER, the other words were Marvelous, Optimist, he said his teacher said the meaning was positive, Terrific, Heroic, Exciting, but he explained the word Restful. He said it's because I'm always resting or sleeping. LOL! I just explained that I need sleep because I come to office early. I will definitely consider that as my favorite trinket from Lex. Pensive thinking, I believe that the word truly depicts me because I'm putting everything in Gods hands and with that I can really rest.
Salt - I always remember this every time I clean fish, salt removes the smell, cleans, preserves and adds flavor. We are reminded that our life is to be like salt as what God commanded in Mark 9:50, "Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other."
That's it for now and I hope I can add more soon. Thank you trinkets.
