Former Colleague and Friend is Sick

Indeed,  health is wealth and it can't be bought with money. I was shock when one good friend and former  bank colleague told me in facebook that another good friend and also a bank colleague is suffering of sickness at the moment. It is not just an ordinary sickness but it is this very dangerous one called cancer.

She told me to write a message to our friend and also asked me to pray for her. I really felt so sad after hearing that news.  Last weekend, I had the chance to exchange  private messages with her thru facebook. She said that she is doing better and she is currently undergoing a chemoteraphy. 


Vitamin F

December 10, 2011, It was Saturday night. I and my friend Joy was in Layos Golf Hotel near Toledo, Spain spending some days vacation there. We had a lovely day trip to Madrid that day. After taking our dinner at the hotel, we proceeded to our room. I was busy packing my luggage that night while my friend was checking her emails. She told me that one of her friends sent her a very inspiring words about friendship. She forwarded it to my email add and honestly, I just read this message tonight.

I am sharing it here before I will delete it. This is wonderful!

"Vitamin F"

I loved this and want to share it with you...

Why do I have a variety of friends who are all so different in character?
How can I get along with them all?
I think that each one helps to bring out a "different" part of me.
With one of them I am polite. I joke with another friend.
I sit down and talk about serious matters with one.
With another I laugh a lot. I may have a drink with one.
I listen to one friend's problems. Then I listen to another one's advice for me.
My friends are all like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.
When completed, they form a treasure box. A treasure of friends!
They are my friends who understand me better than myself, who support me through good days and bad days.

We all pray together and for each other.
Real Age doctors tell us that friends are good for our health.

Dr.. Oz calls them Vitamins F (for Friends) and counts the benefits of friends as essential to our well being. Research shows that people in strong social circles have less risk of depression and terminal strokes. If you enjoy Vitamins F constantly you can be up to 30 years younger than your real age. The warmth of friendship stops stress and even in your most intense moments it decreases the chance of a cardiac arrest or stroke by 50%.

I'm so happy that I have a stock of Vitamins F!

In summary, we should value our friends and keep in touch with them.
We should try to see the funny side of things and laugh together, and pray for each other in the tough moments.

Thank you for being one of my Vitamins!

Friendship Quote For Today

Happy Friday to all! My computer room is a mess now. I have a lot of papers in my computer desk. As I was trying to find some things, I saw this very small paper where I wrote a quote about friendship. I even don't remember if I already share this in any of my blogs. What I just remember was that, I wrote it one night as I was about to go to bed. here it is..I guess it is a beautiful friendship quote!

Having true friends are one of the greatest treasure we can have.
You are blessed if you have one!
by Ruby Benz

I wish everyone a happy and blessed weekend!


Life is Too Rich to spend today in front of the computer

I got a message in my tag-board in one of my sites today saying "Rubz, check the u might find something in there..."..I thought it is a site that has a lot of things to read on, or photos to be seen or items for sale..things like that!!

I was also touched by what the authors say in below please;

"Life is too rich to spend today in front of the computer, so we're taking a rest. Come join us in the park on a walk, in the hospital visiting our friends, snuggling on the couch reading a story."

Isn't this true guys that we already spent most of our time in front of the computer and we don't have the chance to already see the world around us? or maybe we don't have the chance to already converse with our friends, or maybe just breath fresh air outside, or maybe see the beauty of the blue sky, or witness a child play in the park, or simply spend walking with our husband or family? ..

Oh yes, I was touched because I did the same. I had to admit that I spend most of my time everyday in front of my pc. I am sorry for myself about that. I realized it is not good for me. But sometimes it is better than doing other things as gossiping or whatever acts that are not pleasant to other people. I know I found my new world in internet wherein I can share and express my ideas, thoughts, opinions and my personal experiences and so many things about this world.

Anyway, the past days and months of 2009, I really did not spend the whole day anymore compared to last year. I just realized that I also have a real life to attend to or simply do household chores, or see friends, talk to my family back home or maybe simply go out. That is the reason why I did not did blog hopping anymore for the past months unless I see the footprints of any blogger friends in my tagboard or if they left some comments and then I reciprocated by visiting them back..I felt sorry about it guys!

But today, I had the chance to go walking with my husband we did really had fun!! It was a very wonderful afternoon seeing the nature again outside! I hope that the weather will get better in the coming of the spring time so that I can frequently go out again..or maybe see places..

Lastly, I want to thank everyone who always visit me here and leaving their footprints. I apologize if I can't reciprocate your visit immediately. I truly appreciate everything especially to all blogger friends who had helped me a lot in this blogging world. Thanks a million!!

We should always remember, computer is not everything. There are still more realities in this world aside from internet or computer! Go out and see the world around us!! Cheers!!

Happy To Hear from A Friend

I am just expressing my happiness hearing from one of my best friend and also classmate back in my College days. Sometimes and even all the times when you remember the happy moments and bad as well, it just gives you some inspirations in life. This friend of mine have the same course as me but she studied Nursing and just graduated last March of this year. I am happy for her. She was also asking me if I already have kids...Nope big No!! For me, it is not a big deal. When a blessing comes to have children, then I will accept it gladly...God always knows what's best for all of us and whatever plan He have for me, I am ready to accept it. Besides I really don't can do anything if that is really His will!! Agree With Me??? I hoep so..I'm wishing everyone a very nice day!!!


A Tribute To My Dear Friend

I was shocked today after I read the message in my friendster inbox. The message is from my sister's friend who is also my friend and like a little sister to me. The message which was sent yesterday says like this ;

Subject: just to let u know...
hi ate rubz,
just to let u know ate grace passed away last aug. 9, 2008. nanaginip man gud ko sa iya last night telling me for not informing u. sorry po!


I just read it today and I didn't realized that tears were already fulling from my eyes after reading it. My chest is even harden until now after I read again another message coming from her sister, the reasons why she passed. I just can't imagine and ask why???? My friend's name is Grace. She had been a very good friend of mine in College days. I am also very close to her family back in Midsayap. She was my former classmate and I really treasured the friendship we had. Grace is really one in a million!! This post is dedicated to her and I hope and pray that she rest in peace with our Creator now. She is just so young, in her mid thirty's just like me. I had a great time with her back in College days.

How can you imagine that!!!...she already passed-away but came back thru a dream in her sister just to tell me that she already passed-away. I was really deeply touched that a dear dead friend of mine still remember me!! I know I have been a good friend to her and she had been always a good friend to me too. I know I can' t forget all the memories, the friendship and the beautiful moments we shared before in Midsayap.

It was really a very sad happening or even a traumatic experience when our dear friend or loved ones will passed away. To you Grace, I promise to keep our memory. I know I might not express my love for you as a friend but deep in my heart you are always there..You're great and you're one in a million.!! You will never be forgotten especially by your family and good friends out there!!

I love you Grace and I pray that your soul will rest in peace.

To all my friends out there especially the ones who came from my home country, my friends both online and offline, I might not be sending you messages all the time or might be talking to you everyday but I want to let you know that you are always in my mind and in my heart. God bless us all..Thanks for all your friendship and camaraderie!!

Please also pray for the soul of Grace and all souls who passed-away in this world.

“True friends are the ones who never leave your heart, even if they leave your life for awhile. Even after years apart, you pick up with them right where you left off, and even if they die they're never dead in your heart.”

“I haven't seen you in a while, yet I often imagine all your expressions. I haven't spoken to you recently, but many times I hear your thoughts. Good friends must not always be together. It is the feeling of oneness, when distant that proves a lasting”

The most beautiful rainbow

I received this forwarded email from a friend last 2007 with a pix of a beautiful rainbow...just thought of sharing this before I delete it now....very beautiful!! have a great Tuesday to all!!

The most beautiful rainbow

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that
wasn't suppose to ever let you down probably will. You
will have your heart broken probably more than once and
it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so
remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight
with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things
an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast,
and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too
many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never
been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset
is a minute of happiness you'll never get back. Don't be
afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.

Live simply.
Love generously.

Care deeply.
Speak kindly.
Always Forgive,

Hug those you love and those you meet,
and Give more than you receive.

Most of all, Leave the rest to God.


Good friends and Bad Friends

I have some good friends out there..Not only good friends but very very good ones!! and I have lots of them back in the Philippines and even around the world. Most of them are my classmates back in high school and college. I also met some online friends who have been very good!! There are some friends who might not be true to us. I already met one and its my first time to meet such kind of person. After knowing that she betrayed me, I immediately told her to end our friendship. I believed I made the right decision based on this saying;

Anger is only one letter short of danger.
If someone betrays you once, it is his fault;
If he betrays you twice, it is your fault.
Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
He, who loses money, loses much;
He, who loses a friend, loses much more;

I also believed that it is not my lose anyway, it is her lose!! I am very happy and satisfied with my decision right now!! But I just wish that she can still find a true friend who will accept her for what she is!! What is the most important is that I learn some lessons from this bad experience!! Peace!!

I got this message from a friend and classmate in my friendster mail..Thanks a lot Joy..I miss you too!! I really miss your company especially if I reminisce all our beautiful experiences back in school days!! better late than never greetings!! mwuahhhh!!! see yah next year hopefully!!
