..wondering why with this blog title?
Life lately is overwhelming. Overwhelming in a sense that blessings have been constantly overflowing that’s leaving me amazed..astounded..wondering what good I’ve done to deserve them all.
2007 was indeed a great year for hubby and me.
Career wise, he got his well deserved promotion. He’s now a Senior Software Engineer (whoah! bigatin di ba?). While I, after having a brief contractual stint in the call center I’m working for, got absorbed into an A4 position (one notch less of a supervisory rank) and got regularized by October. This series of promotions, of course, is synonymous with “more savings” and it “synchronized” our financial status to a more stable one. Added to that, I got engaged with blog earning opportunities in March (thanks to the Bebot community!) which caught me offguard of how well can I earn by just blogging. “Extra bucks”..”sideline”…big time sideline, I’d say. I’d never thought I’d be able to buy myself my first semi-dslr cam (Canon S3 IS), hubby’s Ipod which was my Christmas gift to him, digiscrapping and blog stuffs, and a lot more.
No major sickness or illnesses..health wise, hubby, I and our families were A-okay.
Relationships wise, I am loving my husband even more as each day passes. I love being a wife..her wife. I’m sure he does likewise. Need I say more?
Real life (elementary & high school friends, college barkada, officemates) and online friends (CWL, blogger and Bebot friends) kept in touch constantly and I’m reminded over and over how I’m so lucky to have them. Reunions, mini-get togethers, lunch outs with colleagues, parties, e-mails, text messages received, eyeballs..if friends can only be monetized, I surely am a Millionaire!
And of course, the biggest blessing we’ve received last year was the news of a gift of life. After fervently praying, wishing and waiting for a year and a half, we finally conceived our first bundle of joy. Just a few more weeks, we’ll get to finally meet him up close and hold him. We can’t wait to see the greatest gift we’ve ever had.
2007 was indeed our best year yet in our marital life. There are even more blessings that are worth mentioning in here but I’m telling you the space and time won’t be enough to contain them all. There sure were downs and troubles but hey, this multitude of blessings alone entirely encompasses everything that I don’t have the time to worry and dwell on those woes.
I’m loving my life to bits…overwhelmed, amazed, taken aback..swept away.
And just how the song goes, I’m seeing my tomorrows in everyone’s eyes with all the love I’m getting. I truly am blessed.
