A Day To Say Thank You!..

I am dedicating this day to thank everyone who have been part of my blogging.

Honestly, when I did my blog, I am not thinking of anything except just making it somewhat like a daily diary. To document everything that I am doing, going and thinking as well as done, went and thought. And to get someone's attention. LOL!

Until, I am slowly getting comments. I started with noone making a comment. At the start, I comment on my own posts. Hahaha! But it is alright with me because as I have said this blog is suppose to be just like a diary and to get my special someone's attention. And then, from one follower to now THIRTY!.. Imagine that!...

For someone like me who is not a poet, a writer, a photographer, a fashion guru, a dietitian and so on and so forth, having you wonderful people as part of this blog makes me feel special and loved and liked. That is why after my blog friend "Rick Watson" gave me an award yesterday, I am making this day as my "THANK YOU" Day!

I am suppose to say 7 things about myself, so here it is:

     1. I am from Roxas, Palawan, Philippines.
     2. I am single, never married and looking forward to getting
         married... where are you?..
     3. I belong to a large family of 8 siblings, 5 boys & 3 girls. I am
         the 5th. I have a very wonderful stepfather and a stepsister.
     4. After the Philippines, I went to Taipei, Taiwan as a Nursing Home Caregiver
         with which I have learned the beauty beyond sagging skin and wrinkled face...
         very rewarding...
     5. And I am blessed to come to Canada to work as a personal caregiver
         to a wonderful man with a wonderful family.
     6. I am soooo blessed except for one...
     7. A lifetime partner, which I am working on... LOL!

Ok there you go!

Now I want to make mention of 7 wonderful people
who have been part of my inspiration in continuing
this blog as I almost surrender... hehehe!..

  8. Hi JJ! I missed this post, unfortunately. I have bad luck that way. Sorry - but I follow about 100 blogs so I cannot read everything.

    This is a wonderful award and you should win it again for helping your friend the other day!

    I deeply appreciate you thinking of me. I have posts that are scheduled for the next week but after that I will have an awards post and link it to you and thank you in public!

    Stay well, my friend.


Your comment are highly appreciated!.. Maraming Salamat Po!..
