Dear_______,

I believe in you. If I didn't, I wouldn't have made you into such an amazing and wonderful person. I believe in you so much, I planted dreams in your heart. Dreams that will make you grow in love and will mature in your soul. Yes, I will use you to share My light and love to many.

So believe in yourself. Even when you fail. Never give up on yourself. Failure is an important part of your success. Look around and you'll discover that the most successful people are those who have failed the most. Trust in Me, I trust in you!

Know the difference between paths and purpose. Even if your chosen path fails, never give up on your sacred purpose. When you write your dreams, include the details that you desire. Your imagination will inspire you. But don't be attached to the details. Surrender to my surprises and open yourself to My abundance. For I have the best blessings and perfect miracles for you, far better than what you can think of or imagine.

Nourish you soul…

Another one for the road!

I didn't expect mom would say yes to me when I had to go out again last night for another round of Barx bonding. Pag lumabas pa naman ako, for sure hindi na ako makakauwi sa laaaayo ng house, so sure overnight na. I guess the power of the words "high school friends" and "balikbayan" worked when I asked permission to go to Rue Bourbon on a Holy Wednesday night. Sobrang "baby" ko pa noh, nagpapaalam padin! Hehehe.

I also discovered a second love in my beer drinking life (hehe). After ordering Red Horse since college because I can't appreciate San Mig Light na usual order ng barkada, Ana and I discovered Draft--na masarap kahit walang yelo (hindi na kailangan hingi ng hingi ng ice). The others like Abi had wine. Laugh trip, people watching, nonsense but benta jokes, and danced and sang the night away. :)  Can't wait for our Bora vacation!!! 

Today till Saturday will be spent with the family. :) Awhile ago the Crazy Gonzales went on a Visita Iglesia…

Happy 420, Happy What??? :D

I noticed some of my friends and contacts posting "Happy 420!!! :D" in their Face Book and Twitter pages today, arousing intrigues to people like me na walang kaalam-alam (sorry naman, painosente ba), hahaha. So, curious and geekazoid as always, I Googled what is behind the number 420:




I got these from ABC News Online:
- Has someone wished you a Happy 420 today? It's probably not because he or she is celebrating Hitler's birthday, although he was born on April 20, or 4/20. More likely they're marking the counterculture holiday unofficially known asNational Weed Day.


- Over the years, theories about the meaning of 420 have pointed to California's penal code section for marijuana use, the police radio code for smoking pot, and the best day to plant cannabis, according to Snopes.


From CBS NEWS Online:420, 4:20 or 4/20, is a number used by many to denote smoking marijuana and pot smokers from Denver to Durango are gathering today, April 20, to say "Happy 420&qu…
