I have met one passenger who’s battling with breast cancer for 9 years. She is 61 years old & not married, she has six siblings which have their own families except for the youngest one whom she is living with.
At her age, she is still working while having her treatment -chemo, radiation & etc all alone by herself for she doesn’t want to trouble her siblings as they’re busy with their own families.
She’s a stranger but talking to her was like I was talking to my mother. I admire her for her strength and for being so positive in life despite of what she’s going through. She gives me a lot of encouragement and inspiration. Such a strong & courageous woman.
My struggle is nothing compare to hers and that I should be more thankful & grateful with my life. She reminds me to face every situations with the right attitude and that life is still beautiful.
Everyday at work I meet a lot of different and interesting people all over the world. I face different challenges and gain different experiences. I came to realized no matter what attitude passengers are going to show me I should not judge them. Everyone has a different story.
Praying for complete healing of my passenger whom despite of her situation she remains grateful in life. And yet, she still willing to help others with all her heart especially to those with cancer. Her heart is full of strength, hope, kindness & peace. Im so blessed with her life. God bless her.
Cancer is big but God is bigger!
Life is beautiful!

I started working abroad at the age of 24 and from that time on I had no chance to spend my birthdays with my family.” For so long I lost time with them. Time flies so fast that I don’t even notice my hair start growing white . I wish I can bring back time. It is really so hard to find time to spend with my family. The work, the distance and the money would not let us so whenever I get an opportunity, a time – I choose to spend it with my family over anything though some people find it odd but no way I would skip out on priceless moment with the people I love most.
Such a beautiful gift to have my family on my birthday completely plus a new baby add on to the family. It is a very rare opportunity that we can be together completely. I’m so happy that we got to redeem the time and make the most out of it. My family is very important to me than anyone else. People, friends may “come & go” but family is forever. They are the one for certain who will not leave you in bad times and stay with u no matter what, who will pick you up when you are down, who will help you carry heavy loads, who will cry & laugh with you, will protect you, will understand you, accept you with all your flaws and will love you unconditionally. I always thank God for my wonderful family. (I don’t need to look for love anywhere coz their love is all enough for me.)
Again another year older & wiser. God is so faithful and will always be. Another year of trials I overcome. His love & grace are sufficient for me. His power works best in my weakness. Without Him in my life, I would have given up in life but my faith in Him is what keeps me going. The joy of the Lord is my strength.
To my mom, God knows how much thankful I am for you. You are my personal cheer leader when I need it, you humbled me when my egos over-inflate, taught me to find the good in things when good is not around, always corrected me when I’m wrong and most specially always reminded me that life here on earth is just temporary that we have to work not only on secular life but also on spiritual aspect. I’ve learned so many things from you mom. How I wish I could be as good & kind as you. I always love & proud to tell the whole world how lucky & blessed I am that you are my mother. You are the best of the best mom. I love you.
And to my father – my supporter, who wants nothing but the best for me/us – thank you, Pa! Thank you for being such a responsible dad & for doing your best to make our family simply live life comfortably. I may not be a perfect daughter but I love you both with all my heart.
And to the man I married, Leo. To have somebody who’s willing to be with you for the rest of His life is a blessing. You are a blessing Love. Our journey has just begun. The road is not that easy as it seems, we stumbled but I’m thankful through it we learned to walk better & stronger. I just pray that God will help us fulfill our promise we made in front of Him and that we will grow together in Him. Thank you for the wonderful birthday surprise. I love you and advance happy birthday.
Indeed a well spent ten days vacay.
So happy & blessed!
Thank you Lord!

What is Smart Love? Apostle Paul describes it in Philippians 1:9-10, Love abounds in Knowledge and Insights. I used to read Joshua Harris’ Book “I kissed Dating Goodbye” I got an explanation about what Apostle Paul means by the verses. ” We need to learn to love appropriately, we need to use our heads and test our feelings so that our love is sincere and intelligent, not a sentimental gush which allowing the emotions to dictate the course of a dating relationship. Instead of acting on what we know is right, we let our feelings carry us away.” To truly love someone with Smart Love, we need to use our heads as well as our hearts. I begun to like the book. I got so many lessons about relationships, about life and all is biblical. And this I pray, that my love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and insight and that I would not let my heart control my head; that ye may prove things that excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ. (Phil. 1:9-10) If we want God’s best in our relationships we must be willing to play by his rules.
