Be Thankful

My two-year old daughter Gabby, learned to say "Thank you" when she was about 1 and 1/2 years old. She would say "thank you" about anything, I mean anything. She will say "thank you" when I gave her some "pasalubong" (homecoming treat), whenever I let her watch her favorite shows (Hi-5, Dora and Barney) or even helping her stand-up or get something for her. The funny thing is, she will also say "thank you" even if she is the one giving or doing something for us as if reminding us to say "thank you". It become 2nd nature to her and it's something that is not mechanical, I feel the sincerity and gratefulness in her heart.

Truly, there are many things to learn from a child.

This time I learned to be grateful and thankful. I learned to be thankful on good and not so good things, about big and small blessings. From a child's perspective everything is a big blessing, no small blessings and no blessings in disguised, just big blessings period.

2011 just ended and I thank God for all the blessings I received. Life is full of challenges, sometimes rough but I survived from it because of God's blessings and guidance. I am more than blessed than the previous years and I believe this year is another year of blessings.

It's time for me to harvest.

I will share with you again the lyrics of the only song I composed in 2011 (I hope to have more this year). Have a blessed 2012 to all.

Overjoyed, overflowed
From the Blessings of the Lord
Now I'm here, To proclaim
What the Lord has done for me

For this is the day that the Lord has made for me
He blessed my life, Now I'm free
To proclaim his wondrous deeds.
I am blessed and overjoyed.

All my life, He blesses me.
Even though I'm doing nothing for Him.
I'm overjoyed with what he's done for me
(Now I know He loves me endlessly)
I will proclaim, I will declare.
