A picture began circulating in November. It should be "The Picture of the Year," or perhaps, "Picture of the Decade." It won't be. In fact, unless you obtained a copy of the paper, you probably will never see it.

Tracey Connelley, Baby P's Evil Mom, Shows NO Remorse

I have never been affected by any story as much as Baby P's story has affected me. Yesterday evening, I found myself sobbing twice! I just can't get over the sheer horror of the story.

Baby P's Murderers -- Why Are They Being Protected?

In my country, it has never happened before that the media and the people have been forbidden to actually reveal the names and faces of TC and SB, the murderers of Baby P.

That Winter The Wind Blows Finale: Did Oh Soo Die?

Over the holy week break, I spent the entire four days just watching the 15 episodes of this Korean show. Yes, I am a self-confessed Korean drama addict. I already have my favorite actors and actresses; albeit, I don’t know their names.

Thy Will Be Done Lord?

I haven't prayed the rosary for a while...blame it on my questions about my religion, but I was feeling unsettled yesterday. I felt like I needed to pray long and hard and leave it all up to a Higher Power to sort everything out for me - and that's what I did. Not only did I pray the rosary but also went on to recite litanies.

Afterwards, I felt a little peaceful. Not because I felt like God would grant my prayer but because I felt like He was in charge. Although there are times when I would question the truth about my faith, I've never questioned His existence - and every now and then, I turn to him.

So first thing this morning, Erbe received 'the' call that we've been waiting for. My first thought was, "Wow God, that was fast!"

He did answer my prayer in a way... I did not ask for it exactly like that though. I just said as I always do, "Thy will be done, Lord."

And maybe this is what He wants. Then why am I so worried? 😔

The Crush Saga

I thought Paige's crush ended when she learned that her "crush" doesn't like her anymore. I was really happy about that. I rejoiced too soon.

Last Saturday, after her Araw ng Wika, we went to McDonalds because she was invited to a birthday party.  After leaving her inside with their yaya, she suddenly came running outside the door and rushed outside the food joint.  Seeing that she was upset, I asked her what happened and she informed me that Zack looked at her sharply, so she didn't want to attend the party anymore.

She was really upset about the whole thing.  I nagged her a little to still attend the party, but she wouldn't budge, so I dropped it. I forgot about the incident until the other day.

The Story About the Devil

There are some stories that need to be told and recorded for all time...and I figured, blogging about this one particular story is a sure-fire way to do both.

It's a story about Riley - my little hellion.

The World at My Feet

Earlier, Erbe saw an old photo album lying around downstairs. Turned out, it was my graduation photo album. I completely forgot about it. Looking at the photos was like looking at them the first time. So, I thought I'd upload some of my favorites here, so I'll have digital prints of them.
