Christmas 2008!

From Inspire

--> Here is a Christmas Entertainment to make you smile

Another year is coming to an end. Isn't it amazing how life is? This year has been a good one. I remember working at the Stanford Inn as a Housekeeper on the first 2 weeks of January, and before that month ended, I was back working for Mr. Farrell. I worked with him from late january until mid-April. That same month, I finally got my Landed Immigrant status and as a benefit of being a permanent resident, I was now allowed to study. So I quit my job and had gone back to school by June. During the summer, Ron and I got to travel a lot to Kamloops, Edmonton, Nelson, Calgary, Fort Saint John, Vancouver and we were able to do some a few hikes in Alberta (one of which I did in memory of my mom who passed away in September 2006) Summer was wonderful. We enjoyed visiting friends and Ron's Family. Although, I still haven't been able to visit any member of my family from the Philippines since 2006, at least the e-mails and the phone calls were comforting. This year my family had lost auntie Getty (mom's side), and also my uncle and another auntie (from dad's side). That was another sad moment for everyone in the family. I also had several car dramas this year which included the engine close to burning, and my brakes getting damaged and an enless list of problems that were costly. I stopped insurance on my car and will resume using my car again in the summer or when I will be in Cranbrook as a full time student. Ron has been on several lay-offs this year as well due to the Lumber Market Crisis affecting the sawmill where he works. But we are fine - Thank God. Here is wishing you all the best this holiday season and all the best for 2009 as well! I love you! Spread the love! Edgar (and Ron)

  8. It's Kaye! Couldn't sleep tonight. I decided to google myself (just bored, not being eccentric) LOL! Then, found your blogsite. Your pictures are wonderful!

    How are you? Guess I don't need to ask that. It is all reflected on the works of art that you create for people to see and find inspiration in.

    Best wishes. Thanks for leaving trails behind so I can keep in touch of you.

  13. hi bro and ron...
    kamustas amigos?
    first, merry christmas to both of you.

    yes, the year is at its end...as we look back,various things happened.

    fortunate and unfortunate things as well.deapite the undesirable things, we still tried a step forward till we get a big leap. as for me, 2008 has been the year of my peak and trough.im really grateful because of all the blessings i had.these blessings no matter how tiny they were accounted for the biggest blessings of all...and that is happiness.

    let's continue praying for strength and the most important of all..LOVE.

    ANYWAY, MERRY CHRISTMAS KABSAT...KEN NI RON MET...I HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON...

    love,
    totz and loraine
