For having 2 jobs where there are millions who are unemployed and still looking for jobs to support their families... I cannot be more thankful. I pray that I will be able to continue working with such great people in both jobs who I don't just consider my friends but my second families.
For having wonderful BFFs here and back home I am so amazed at how blessed I am for having them in my life. They inspire me in so many ways that without them, life will be boring. I pray that I will be able to remain faithful to the friendship that you guys unselfishly given me. (Sorry I can't have photos of all of you. I don't want to forget someone and get hurt and I don't have all the photos of you guys in one place. But you do know who you are, right?)
For my Maine Family... thank you for all the love and acceptance. You are not only my family now but my home where my heart lives. I pray that we continue to grow in love and understanding.
having my brother Japol to come and visit me here in Maine even for just a short period of time was nothing short of a blessing. Having been away for 7 long years from my birth place where I left behind my family and friends, life here in Maine can be a bit of a struggle. Though social media helps a lot in connecting with them it's still not the same as having them in person. Being able to hug them in flesh and bones, laugh with them without the aid of the speakers, eat and drink without watching my diet, go shopping and sight seeing with endless photo ops are priceless moments. I pray that my other brother - Gary will be able to come and visit me here soon too. And yes, it would be better if both of them will come at the same time. Then, we will be able to create new happy memories together like we did when we were little.
to live life to the fullest just like I did in the past 49 years and continue being grateful for all the blessings that will come my way.
This is the photo of how I started 2014.
Happy New Year to us all!!!
