A Very Touching Story

Here’s a very touching story told by Father Jose Ariel Garcia during the values Enhancement Seminar in our office.


Ana (not her real name) was new to the orphanage. She never smiles and never talks. Her face was bland and dull. Because of this nobody wants to befriend with her. So she sleeps alone in her room. A month had already passed but still Ana does not talk.

Until one night, a nun assigned to that orphanage heard a child crying. But as she approaches the room where the sound of crying was heard, she realized that it was not a cry but a voice of a child singing monotonously, “Nanay, asa ka?” (“Mama, where are you?”). She saw Ana curled in one corner, singing the line “Nanay, asa ka?” repeatedly. 

The nun immediately embraced Ana and cuddled her, crying and sung repeatedly “Änak, naa na si nanay.” (“My child, mother is already here”). 

The embrace of the nun and reassuring line “My child, mother is already here,” had made a big impact to Ana’s life, since then Ana smiled, talked and learned to mingle with others. 


I’ve read similar stories like this in Chicken Soup for the Soul. Even just a hug could change the life of a lonely, desperate person. 

Share your power hug!!!

Do What You Love and The Money Will Follow

I think almost every bloggers are doing this blog-advertising thing. I'm already left behind.... the competition is so tough not just between the advertisers but also in the bloggers themselves. And I'm worried about it. Will I ever get the chance to be hired by the advertisers?

But was I really left behind??? Hope I'm not.... what holding me is this familiar adage "better late than never." What do you think?

But anyway I blog, mainly because It's my way of expressing myself. Like what the title of the book of Marsha Sinetar says, "Do What You Love, The Money Will Follow: Discovering Your Right Livelihood" Yes, I blog because this is what I want to do. And I love it!!!

Singles for Christ

I attended the Christian Life Program for Singles for Christ last Sunday. I do not know why I joined because lately I am so discouraged and upset that facing Him is not an option. I even have this feeling that He doesn’t really exist (I honestly felt guilt about this feeling). But on the other hand, I’m thirsty of His messages and longing the life of being God center.

I was active in Youth for Christ (YFC) ten years ago. Praising Him through singing and dancing together with different young adult coming from different places are just few activities that made it enjoyable. It’s different when you are close to Him, no exact word can describe my feelings. My spirit is lifted and everything seems to be light. It’s a magical feeling indeed.

However, studies and some other reasons kept me away from attending activities of YFC. So eventually I’m separated from christian life. I regularly attended Sunday mass, I prayed every night, before meal or sometimes when I wanted to just pray, especially when I’m upset. But it’s totally different. My life as a christian is slowly dying. There come to the point that I want to forget about everything about Him.

God loves me!

Before the speaker started her topic, which is “God’s Love,” we picked rolled paper which I thought a task assigned to us, but it was not! Instead, a Bible scripture was written. I was struck with His message, God really loves me. He did not answer those problems that made me upset, but He send a message assuring me He is with me, and all that I prayed will be answered according to His time.

The Bible Scripture:


O my soul, don’t be discouraged.
Don’t be upset.
Expect God to act!
For I know that I shall again have plenty
of reason to praise Him
for all that He will do.
He is my Help!
He is my God.
~ Psalm 42:11 ~
