"This Christmas Season may love and charity be our guiding light as we let hope and happiness shine bright..."Christmas. Love. Charity. Light. Hope. Happiness. Bright.
Christmas is just around the corner...Some of us have almost finished on our Christmas list…Some cargo boxes are already sealed and ready to be shipped to loved ones anytime…Some of us had already plan for “the event” – Christmas parties, family reunions, and others already booked for vacation
But Christmas is more than those –
"I do believe that we were all created for a reason. We may have different views of our purpose in life, but in the end, we all agree that we are meant for something or someone in our life..
It has been my greatest deeds to share my blessings to other people. Mostly to people whom I don't know or people I haven't heard of. Early in life, I've learned that life is tough so I have to be tough. I experienced hardship along the way, countless trials and excruciating pains. I endured all of this with the help of people who cheered me up, guided me and lead me to the right direction to where I am right now. If not for them, my life should have ended on different path.
I knew that I have moral obligations to share the blessings that I have. Same what other people have done to me when I was in need through those difficult times in my life.
Now I am living on this principle of sharing my blessings. I may have not much monetary fund to share, but my knowledge and expertise can also be shared to others. It is only up to us how we are going to give back all the things that we have today for the benefit of those people that needed it most. This is my way of being happy through giving happiness to other people."
My name is Marie Angela De Luna Honor, mother of Hannah Marie D. Honor. She was born on born Feb. 26, 2009 is now 2 years old. On her 2nd month, she was diagnosed with "Biliary atresia", a liver disease characterized by the absence or closure of the bile ducts. On her 3rd month "Kasai" procedure was done on Hannah at the Philippines Children’s Medical Center [PCMC]; an operation that removes the damaged biliary ducts outside the liver. According to her doctor, this operation is not a cure but rather a temporary solution to give us some more time to find resources for the necessary funding of Hannah's liver transplant operation.
"...Pinoy bayanihan lives on. It is a deeply-rooted Filipino practice that cannot be forgotten. There is bayanihan in holding the arm of an elderly who is crossing the street, or in helping someone carry belongings.
In this modern age when even our grandparents are on Facebook, and when a Dear Diary is now called a blog, and when “following’’ is the new word for “stalking,’’. Bayanihan is still very much alive through the share button, re-tweet, re-post, and message forwarding.
Yes, things can now be done a lot easily but it is the bayanihan spirit that matters. Through social media, missing persons are found; sick persons are given chances to live a healthy life. I say, that is the modern bayanihan movement...."
