I am still thankful...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Aside from the many blessings I have received this year, there is one thing special that I am really grateful for today... it is my son's second life.

Last Friday at around 2:30 in the afternoon while I was busy giving directions to my office staff, I received a news that my son was rushed to the Emergency Room because he was hit and run by a motorcycle. That was the most devastating news any mother could hear about her child. I was not prepared for the day. I immediately rushed to the ER to check on him and he was crying and in pain. I heard him asked the nurse "Where's my Mommy? Where's Daddy?". My heart felt like it stopped beating when I saw him drenched in blood. He had contusion and wound on his forehead, arms and left leg. His right leg was fractured and could not move. At 6:00 in the evening he was scheduled for wound debridement, suturing and casting. He cried and cried while waiting for the schedule until he felt tired. I accompanied him to the OR and told him happy stories to divert his attention.

The procedure was successful and his doctor confirmed that his CT scan result was normal. We were discharged on Sunday afternoon.

Indifference kills. It almost took away my child's life. I remember the video of a young Chinese child who was ran over at least three times by two vehicles and she was left in the middle of the road dying. I could not imagine... and do not want to imagine the same thing happening to my child. But it did happen to him. If felt like I was shattered to many pieces.

I am thankful, despite of it all, that my son is still with me and he is recovering fast.

The driver is still at large. I pray it will not happen to him or to any of his loved ones.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.

To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Random Clicks: Villa Buenaflor Beach Resort

We will have a seminar tomorrow and one of my tasks from being a coordinator is to make sure the venue is perfect so I checked it today together with my colleague.  A lot of things have changed since the last time we had a seminar in Villa Buenaflor Beach Resort in Brgy. Calibuyo, Tanza, Cavite and I wouldn't miss the chance of having some clicks before we call it a day.
 This is the view from the 2nd floor of the newly built hotel facing Manila Bay and Bataan Province.

The Corregidor Island in Bataan is just an hour away from Villa Buenaflor.
