Every yuletide season, I’m looking forward to the surprises that it offer to my life, not just because of certain material things or presents that I receive but moreover to the lesson that I learned in the past eleven (11) months.
Anyway, whether it’s tangible or intangible blessing, I am always thankful because it reminds me that I’m somehow important in this world. Here are some of the tangible gifts that I received this yuletide season:
My eldest sister Alda (we call her ate Bing2x) and her husband kuya Sherwin (my brother-in-law) have sent their holiday gifts as part of a big package for our family. Fresh from Canada, I received the following: Aeropostale Shirts, 2 digital cameras, a set of elegant perfume, a big pack of Combos and a big bar of Belgian Hazelnut Chocolate.
Before the Christmas eve, we’ve had a reunion with our highschool classmates and I received this fancy customized stickers from one of classmates, Apple Corminal. I love it because my name is shown on the stickers.
During the said reunion, I received another present from one of my bestfriends Mark Lester Gianan (we call him Che). Thank you for the cool GAP casual shirt.
I’m always thankful that every year, I’m receiving this spiritual book, Our Daily Bread. I enjoy reading each page of that book as it helps me guide with my life. This present was given to me by my officemate, Kristian Liwanag.
Another precious spiritual gift I received from my sister Jem, kuya Alvin (my brother-in-law), Jelvin (my nephew) and Miray (my niece). The book is entitled “The Lord is my Shepherd.”
Money matters… I feel I’m still young to receive gifts from my loved ones! Thank you sister Sha, Doc Cris (my brother-in-law), Owald (my nephew) and Ish (my niece) for the money inside this red envelope we call Ampao.
Well, for this year, I received a pair of shorts from my Mama and Daddy. Thank you Lord for my parents!
I received another pair of shorts courtesy of my niece and nephew, Jelvin and Miray. I love you both.
One of my officemates gave me this gift full of sweetness. Thank you Xyn Isleta-Baydo for your Christmas gift, a mini jar full of chocolates!
Perhaps, it’s better to give than to receive however, I’m considering these gifts as blessing from the good Lord above! (AAP)
