Quote 21

A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes. - Hugh Downs

Following One's Passion

I've been in a dilemma ever since I read this article. Will I let Faith or Fear influence my decision? Incidentally, I've read that Faith and Fear have the same definition: believing what you don’t see is going to happen.  If you are in the same boat as I am, or in a position where you have to choose between security (your comfort zone) and chasing your dreams, please, don't hate me for posting this.

This Special Child Is a Blessing

This really happened this afternoon at the last rites and interment ceremony of a man whose youngest child, Daboy, is autistic. 

Scene 1
Church, as the elder daughter was giving her eulogy for her father.  Lumapit si Daboy at pilit inaagaw yung microphone habang nagsasalita si Ate.  Heard over the speakers:  "Oorder ako.  Oorder ako ng Mcdo."

Scene 2
Church, as everyone was crying. Nakita ni Daboy umiiyak ang lahat kaya humagulgol na rin.  Then, sabi niya sa katabi niya, "Bakit ka umiiyak?"

Scene 3
Cemetery, when the casket was opened for last viewing.  The wife of the deceased was crying aloud.  Sabi ni Daboy, "Mommy, don't cry.  Mommy, don't cry.  Mommy, don't cry for me, Argentina." 

Amid all the grief, it was this child who brought comfort to those who were lamenting.

Faith and Fear

Did you know that fear and faith have the same definition?

That definition is this: believing what you don’t see is going to happen!

Successful people choose FAITH.
