Story of the pencil

A boy was watching his grandmother write a letter. At one point he asked:

‘Are you writing a story about what we’ve done? Is it a story about me?’

His grandmother stopped writing her letter and said to her grandson:

‘I am writing about you, actually, but more important than the words is the pencil I’m using. I hope you will be like this pencil when you grow up.’

It was only a dream for me to be able to hear again. When I learned about the Auditory Brainstem Implant, a device designed for NF2 to be able to hear again, my mom and I thought of a fund drive so I could have the implant done. We called it the hEAR Campaign (Help my Ear hEAR).

I, You & We are not an accident

"Before I shaped you in the womb,
I knew all about you.
Before you saw the light of day,
I had holy plans for you"
JEREMIAH 1:5


"I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for."
JEREMIAH 29:11

Friday the 13th? To think that it is a bad luck day is an absolute fallacy. I was born on Friday the 13th of May, 1983, with zero respiration, not a bad luck — but a beginning of a brighter life for me because God gave me a second chance.

My life has been filled with challenges eversince.

KCAT CAN: No Turning back time


Cinderella said (sang pala)..
A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep
Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling thru
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
the dream that you wish will come true

ayun may family pic pala kami..

"Dreams can take us anywhere if we just set them free! What we believe is what we achieve. What we imagine is what we become. What we think is what we experience."
