Always something there to remind me!

I was so tired after finishing our final exams that I wanted to sleep when I got home in the afternoon but I couldn’t! My mind was still going over the exam…

I know it was my first exam after 25 years but it was just another exam...

Argh! Its over, why can’t it just go away and I get to rest then just focus on other things here…

Finally I got out of bed and went to my brother and sis-in-law and asked if they had some funny tapes. They said they had none but they had some series they downloaded from the internet. I said okay, can I just stay and watch? They have a wide-screen monitor unlike my laptop. They said okay since they wanted to watch the series again. They were laughing and said it was a funny series and told me glimpses about the other episodes.

The series was House. It was the last episode for the season. It is a story of a doctor who just lost his 3 team mates. One was fired, the other resigned and the other left because the other two left. Well that’s what they mentioned and they said the doctor was funny…

I saw the first segment and asked again if it was funny and they said yes with smiles on their faces. So I continued watching and though I admit that the doctor’s ways were funny, I did not find that episode funny. It was drama! And even while watching it I could still associate with some terms in our class ---- collaboration!

Argh!!! Why can’t I just shake off the course for a little while…

We finished the series and I said I wanted something I could laugh on and they got an old UK series from the ‘70s – Mind your language. Ah yes. I laughed! it was funny to watch adult foreigners… immigrants... learning how to speak English…. But there I was again… thinking of school! The series was on the non-traditional program of a school . Geez! I guess I had systems overload for the day!

I just need to rest! Tomorrow I’m back to normal…

Hmmm… I wish it was the same for something else on my mind…

It will be great to be totally back to normal!

In time… everything will be back to normal!

Miracles of Love!

"Where there is great love there are always great miracles."

I’ve had this poster in my door since college.

I’ve moved rooms in our home several times already and I would transfer the same poster to the door of my new room. Somehow, it has become a fixture.

I see it everyday but I don’t really pay much attention to it anymore. I have always appreciated the message but it was just there.

Lately, however, I have been looking at it more intently and feeling the full meaning. When you love there is always a miracle… lots of miracles! Sometimes you just don’t realize them because they’re so subtle and they are not the miracles you are thinking of or hoping for…

But they are!

So, we should always remain loving and be thankful of miracles!

Taong grasa

On my way back to work after noon mass, I saw 2 girls probably aged 4 and 6 following a grease lady (taong grasa). They were taunting her! They were laughing and shouting things at her and she was mumbling things at them too while she continues walking and taking a cigarette (which she probably picked from somewhere) from her mouth. I have seen the woman before. She was either roaming or lying on the streets and I know that she is out of her mind but to see two kids mocking her was hard to take!

She was walking fast and the kids were running after her while continuously taunting her. No, they were not really running for there was rhythm in their steps and they were like jumping and were joyful while they followed her! They have passed a lot of people who just watched them as they passed by and I even heard one man call the woman Madonna. They have traveled a long distance before I was finally able to catch up with them and I asked the kids why they were making fun of her and told them to go back to their mother. They were surprised when I talked to them and stopped and looked at me bewildered! I can see from their faces that they did not see anything wrong with what they were doing, that they were just having fun and I really felt bad. People could be so cruel, even little girls! And sometimes they are not even aware of it! They are just caught up in the fun of the moment and they don’t really realize that they are hurting people. Or maybe they don’t think of her as human, maybe they don’t think that she feels? Well, somehow, I hope she doesn’t!

It is better that she doesn’t feel so she doesn’t get hurt… because some people could be cruel!
