I’ve never been this thankful

Saying the word “Thank you” is so common. Most of the time, we say it just because it’s part of our speech automatically when something is done for us. We can say it many times in one simple, single conversation without us knowing how many times did we really say it.

With all the things going on around us, I can’t help but utter my words of sincere “thanks” almost every time I breathe. It’s just overwhelming to see and hear how many individuals are affected by this virus.

Every individual on the face of earth became appreciative of who they are and what they have. We used to take for granted so many things around us and about us.

…now, we miss going to work. We miss that colleague that doesn’t seem to matter to us before. Kids miss school and hope that they can go back and learn the things they were not crazy about. We miss going to church and seeing our brothers and sisters in Christ. I am not so much of a hugger, but now, I wish I can hug my family and friends every time I see them…but I can’t.

Not anymore do I spend time figuring out what to buy from a local store because I tend to compare quality and price. Now, how I get excited to see a couple of items in a certain rack and grab it right away before someone else gets it. I don’t care about quality and price anymore. I don’t even care what the brand is because there’s not a lot of options. You can only get what’s available for you. What about the next couple of days? Well, let’s deal with that in the next day or two.

I never expected myself to be so appreciative of every people I see walking, though I know them or not. It just feels great to see them healthy and being their normal self. Then I wonder…what about the other person at the other side of the wall, so sick and fighting for life, and yet not being able to be with family. It hurts just to imagine what they’re going through.

I’ve never uttered this much prayer in my life. Every where I turn my eyes to, I see God’s work…the beauty of it. He is still amazing and His work is unfathomable. How he weaves this tapestry of life and the end result of all these. No one can know the why’s, the how’s, the when, and who. And we are not to know…but we are to rely on His power ALONE. We don’t have control over anything. But if we learn the true meaning of “Thank You”, everything before us becomes beautiful. The breath of fresh air is more real and meaningful.

I am thankful. God is my maker and He’s never wrong. We may never understand, but we can always believe.

Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding…

Published by My blessed lyfe

I would like to call myself a "Supermom"... not to boast about what I can do, but being grateful for all that God has made me to be. I'm a mother of 4 beautiful children and a wife to my amazing husband. I'm a child of God and so blessed to be a part of His family. I am no extraordinary, but I am special because I exist for a purpose. I love music very much. Grew up as a Worship Leader and been doing it since 18. Singing song for the Lord is my heart's delight and every time I open my mouth to sing, my prayer is that I become a vessel of Christ where people that hears my voice, hears the voice of God. I always say... "I will keep singing until my last breath..." Let me introduce you to the love of my life... Arianne (Adrianne) is my first born. I had her when I was 23. She had taught me so many things in my young married life. She's now 26 and just got engaged to her childhood sweetheart who happened to be our drummer and the firstborn of our Church Pastor. She works as a Nurse and I am so proud of her. She is also our Church Secretary. Personality wise...I saw some of my character on her. Camille (Andrea) is my number 2 daughter. When she was born, Arianne became a wonderful "ate", big sister to her. Camille, as a middle child, displayed great traits a middle child could be. She was independent, smart, and great singer even on her young age. She would surprise me when she was 4, singing Celine Deon's fast songs with perfect lyrics. She's now 24 and an Accountant at a prestige Accounting firm. By the way, she learned to play the guitar and the piano on her own. My frustrations on instruments...she's got it. Yasmine (Audrey) is the baby (for awhile). She came just a little over a year from Camille's birth. They grew up like twins. She has the strongest personality, that's why as little girls...she would always make Camille cry. She's now 23 and enjoys taking pictures and video. She loves her job which let her enjoy her hobby. Digital Marketing takes her to places and be at interesting events she loves. Andrei, our baby boy (at last!). He was born here in the US while his sisters were in the Philippines. They were able to meet him when he was 2. He's precious, cute, intelligent, and loved. He's very good with basketball which makes my husband so proud! He's not the tallest in his team, but he's not the shortest either. Quiet...yet smart. He's now 15 and soon to try driving. He wanted to be an Engineer someday. Robert, my better half is God's destiny for me. He's had so many challenges in his life but, remained to be positive and determined. I met him at my first job after college graduation. After a few months of working together, became sweethearts, and after a few months, got engaged, then got married. I was 22 when I became Mrs. Garcia. Not my plan, but it's God's destination written for me. On this site I will take you to my journey as a mother, a wife, a servant of God, and a person who thinks deeply about life. I can be very boring, but I can be very colorful. My life has been bumpy, flat, dark, and bright. But I cannot be thankful enough to my Lord and my Savior Jesus Christ who make all things possible for me and my family. I am not adventurous but I get easily amazed by what life has to offer. I'm mostly quiet, introvert, melancholy, shy...but when you get to know me and I get to know you, I can be a wonderful friend.
