A Look back on the year 2013

Something i could not imagined that 2013 will be near to an end, it might be a day to go or seems we are already counting an hours from now and I could really say thank you 2013 for being so good and nice to me and so much looking forward for the year 2014, wishing and hoping that for what i haven’t got in 2013 may it continues and achieve this coming year. And actually, there are lots of thing i should be grateful for. To mention, the healthiness, happiness, the blessings and the another years of life given to me and my family.

I remembered the same time last year, i picked some goals that i wanted to achieve this year and so lucky i am that some of it had been realized already. Considering, this blog has provided me one of the goals that has been reached. Not totally perfect but it’s a good starting point. It was really a big challenge for myself as i know my part that it’s really hard to write an article completely, as far as i know since before i was having problem writing an English language and added to a very weak on grammar, but thinking now of how far i am improving and because of this blog I think I slowly exceeded on it, despite i will keep on trying and trying. I know time will come, i’m gonna make it perfect, hopefully.

Oh no, this was also a year where i am supposed to be excited and work hard for the coming year. One of my best accomplishment ¬†was sending off my sister to her long dream career in medicine. She’s gonna be in first year now and in God’s will, she will finish her studies 4 years from now. Isn’t a long time to wait right? Yes, i know, but i keep on praying that she will succeed. I believe, time wouldn’t be noticed and too long to wait if we don’t mind it. We just need to take the step one at a time.To my sister dear, study hard. I know you can make it, i am here at your side always to support you.

Yes, yes this year was also granted my wish to be with my hubby always. He is a police officer in town and so expected to be assigned in somewhere else in a far places. But thanks to God because he’s been moved and is now assigned at the place where i am working. So we’ve been together all the time now. Happy me ūüôā

And you really don’t believe this, did you know that i have done some things for the first time this year? Yes, it’s true believe me. Okay, to get you up, there is it, first on the lists is, since we are living on a city and we should need to rent a house for shelter we are realized that it’s very painful on paying monthly rent and that really broke the bank and so we are decided to find a home mortgage and how lucky we are we got a perfect place, i would say the ground is perfect for plants and trees and since i really love flowers and plants growing at front of the house what i did was i planted some plants and flowers and there growing so fast now, yeepee! it’s my first time as a gardener.

A look back then, I really hate cooking. Being a cook is really not my passion, i hate staying up in the kitchen that will last in an hour. But believe me, it’s my first time to cook. My hubby has been always demanded some recipes that i didn’t actually know. But thanks to Google search, got some bunches of recipes and i really much enjoyed exploring and cooking now. And so was it, that’s the beginning of being a cook.

Another thing, during Christmas holiday¬†it’s been a traditional way here in our country¬†¬†to have a Night Mass(Misa de Gallo) that would last for nine days, it will starts every 16th of December and ended up on 24th day of the same month, the mass was started at 4’am and it was really a big challenge for me to wake up as early as 3’am. There is always a superstitious belief that when you complete the nine days, your wish will be granted. And proud to say that for the first time in history of my life i completed the nine days. And with this, you might be thinking that i have a big wish that need to be granted this coming year but think you are right i might have a big wants that need to be realized sooner or later that only god can provide. I am hoping and wishing on it all the time, hopefully God will grant me that big wish. I will tell you what was it if it’s already been realized. But then, it was really an experienced that i never forget. Thank you God, for giving me the enthusiasm and the courage to wake up that early as it was. Hoping to do it next time.

This year has been so different to me as well, I wasn’t getting used to it. It’s my first time celebrating Christmas and New Year away from home. Very sad and got really a home sick this time. Been always thinking of them and can’t help nothing but cry. Hubby and I didn’t get a chance to went home because of his work. They we’re not allowed to take a holiday break. So we’re celebrating here alone. Hope the next year, will gonna have a chance to celebrate with them.

At last, we could say a passing year is only a time we passed and walked through but when we take a look back, there are lots of different stories of life that has been created. An experienced that we could bring to the next year and a lesson that we could always learned. May some stories happened again, some could be forgotten and some new are coming. Whatever will be life must go on.

And everyone allow me to greet you in advance, have a wonderful Happy New Year to you. May this coming year brings more blessings and happiness to you. May you get succeed and achieve all of your goals in life.

For all who joined my life this year, thank you so much.  You are really one of the reason why my life is much worth moving and living.

So sorry for this long talk. And see, it’s a first time i wrote this long blog. Yes, I made it! It was really hard but fulfilling. Thank you all! Mwah….
