Still remember me?

I still remember all of you guys who has been supporting me and my blog mostly to Dee, thank you for your time reading, commenting,  corresponding with me by emails, "listening" to all the ups and downs and those difficult times. It's been a pleasure of knowing you. To PiB, thank you so much for welcoming me into the group blog. I really appreciate that. :)  To Kaleeko, thank you for your wonderful comments. You are a talented writer and an inspiration. To Chrysame, your perspective in viewing the characters had given me lots of inputs. Thank you. To Jennifer, reading your stories is like reading a real life story and you're someone I'd love to know more about. To mmmcheezy225, you said that whenever you read my stories it's like reading a novel. It encouraged me a lot.  Thank you. Last but not least to all the people I've not mentioned here. I want to thank you for your time reading, commenting, and sharing your stories. For me, you are wonderful, and you're all my friends. Thank you for the inspirations.

The reason I've not been writing anymore, it's just not about work, or because I've been busy, but life has turned me into another direction. My  father needed me, and in those special times we've grown closer like we've never been before.

A heart disease, old age, and finally a stroke have taken him away from me.

He had rested in peace after so many months of suffering. I really miss him, but whenever I look back, those times, when we're  closer, were the times I will not exchange with anything in life. I love him.

And I know he loves me. 

My father is not a perfect man, but after everything he has gone through, and the times he was fighting for his life  so he could  be there for his family... for me he is a perfect father, and I'm really thankful for that. He taught me a lesson of life.

I'm in the point of my life now, where I've realized all the mistakes I've done, where I've learned to forgive, and mostly I've learned how to love unconditionally.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."

When you have someone with you -- someone you love – that someone is not be perfect. He or she may make a mistake, but when they do, remind them with gentle and kind words. Hold back your anger,  because you'll never know when they are not around anymore.

My father stays with me in my heart. I will always remember him, especially the last days we've spent together.

I don't know when I will be able to continue to write this blog again. My mother is the one who's really suffering because of the lost. I should be there for her.

But until then, I want to thank you.

Thank you so much for all of your time reading my stories.

I really appreciate it.

~Sincerely yours~


These songs are dedicated to my father...

Oh,honey. I don't know where to begin, or if there's even a place that I can, but please know that you will be in my thoughts, and that while I am sad for your loss, I am happy knowing that you stepped aside from your writing for such a wonderful reason. Spending that time with your father was time well spent--it enriched both your lives, and I am so, so happy for you, that you were able to experience that, despite the heartache that it also brought.

I often wondered where you were or what you were up to, so I really appreciate that you took the time to let us know--you will always have a special place in my heart even if you choose not to write again. Your stories have touched and moved me in ways none other have, and one way or another, I cherish that gift you gave us.

The most important thing right now is your family though, and I hope that both you and your mother are able to cope together and make each other stronger. Take care of each other--I hope the bond between you and her becomes even better with what you guys have been through. Even the saddest events in our lives offer us some blessings--I'm so glad you were able to see them.

Best wishes for your future and, if life doesn't steer you back towards us just know--I will miss you. <3

Just wanted to say....that verse in 1 Corinthians 13 does not say's charity. In the original English version of the bible (KJV 1611 and even today) that verse has always said "Charity" not love.

Hey MJ, I'm sincerely sorry to hear about the passing of your father. Just reading your post it sounds like it has been a very tough time for you and your mother. I hope that you'll both be able to find the strength to get through this together.

You must know that you have been in my thoughts too, wondering how you are or what you've been up to. I just wish it was different circumstances that had been keeping you busy.

Your so right about learning to forgive. No-one is perfect and there definitely comes a time in everyone's life where we are forced to stand back and take an objective view of ourselves and the life we are living. I find this to be a good thing because it can only make you a better, stronger person.
It's just unfortunate that most times we are forced to do this it's due to a tragic or stressful situation or event.

I want to thank you too for the time you took reading my story, for all your support, which I truly appreciate and for your friendship! I would love to get to know you, along with a few others, better as well.

Take all the time you need MJ, I know you can get through because your an amazingly strong and beautiful person. <3

My prayers are with you and I hope everything works out for the best. Take care and I will miss you.

*big hugs*

Jen and Kaleeko, Thank you so much for your support. It's an amazing experience for me to know wonderful and creative people like you. I've learned so much during those times, and... I don't know what else to say, but no matter what, you'll have a special place in my heart -- you and your wonderful work of art. Keep writing, both of you :)

I hope you will find me again soon :)

Until then,

Thank you **Hugs - hugs**

Oh, and Kaleeko, thank you dear... You're right, those were hard times, but at the same time there were happy, unforgettable moments. Sometimes, I am still feeling guilty, depressed, sad, but I will always remember the times when my father were getting closer. and I know he have always loved me and I will always love him. You're right, during these times, my mother and I need each other. Thank you so much for reminding me, dear. Please keep writing and keep me on your email list so I can still read your stories. :) And Jen, thank you so much... I rarely open blogger now, please add me to your e-mail list. Even though, until now I have not given any comment on your blog, but I'd love to read your stories. I still have passion in writing, and someday I hope I will be able to write again.
