"this is the journey of
surviving through poetry
this is the blood sweat tears
of twenty-one years
this is my heart
in your hands
the healing" -Rupi Kaur --Currently reading Milk and Honey. I rarely read poetry, but I'm liking this.
Happy New Year! I hope that this year will be full of joy, love, and laughter for you and your loved ones!
Simbang Gabi ended today, and although I only went to 8 out of the 9 masses, I guess that's okay as long as the reason for the season is not forgotten. May your Christmas be merry and bright, everyone!
It's the most wonderful time of the year
It really feels like the holidays! Our Christmas decorations are up, and Christmas songs are playing everywhere. I'm going to (hopefully!) see some snow next week, and then Simbang Gabi will start soon after I come back. I still need to shop for some people, but I've been pretty good and finished most of it already. I just need to wrap them...which I will do later. Or tomorrow. Or the next day.
"Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me

The words had escaped him before he knew what he was saying. Currently reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
