YAN ANG PINAY!

* Huwebes, May 26, birthday ng brother-in-law ko, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RANDALL! Nang araw na ito rin, maraming magandang pangyayari na hindi ko inaasahan...

- Nag-LOA ako sa trabaho dahil inimbitahan kami ng asawa ko sa awarding ceremony sa elementary school ng anak ko. Parangal daw para sa mga tumulong ngayong school year. Ano nga ba ang nagawa ko? Hmmm... may mga pinagawa sa computer ang teachers na na-type at na-print namin ng asawa ko. Noong Children's Cultural Heritage Program nila, kasali sa fashion show ang anak ko. Naka-Igorot costume sya at nagsalita ng kanyang Tagalog piece sa stage. Alam ng anak ko na sa Pilipinas sya nanggaling. Most Outstanding Student sya ngayong third advisory at sa himala, may Citizenhip Award din....YAN ANG PINAY!

- Dumiretso ako sa isa pang affair na imbitado rin ako. Syempre full support ako sa mga kapwa ko Filipino Teachers dito...tatlo silang bagong Teacher Fellows 2005 sa DC Area Writing Project. Ako ang nagbigay ng recommendation sa kanila --- dapat lang na magtulungan kami dito di ba? Dapat lang na i-share ko sa kanila ang blessings na natatanggap ko dito...YAN ANG PINAY!

- Hindi ba't masarap sa pakiramdam na mapansin ang efforts pag gumawa tayo ng mabuti? Masaya na ako sa awards naming mag-anak noong umaga. Nang hapon na iyon, sobrang hindi inaasahan ang dalawa pang awards galing sa isang kilalang organization dito, DC Area Writing Project satellite site dito sa Washington DC ng National Writing Project. Overwhelming na para sa akin ang tawag na Teacher Consultant. Masaya na ako doon. Hindi ko inaasahan na tatawagin na rin akong Teacher Leader nang ibigay sa akin ang Excellence in Leadership Award...YAN ANG PINAY!

- May nagyaring malungkot ngayong Linggo, pero ang mga pangyayari noong Huwebes naman ang masayang kapalit. Masaya ako dahil maraming pa ring nagbibigay ng gabay sa akin sa oras ng krisis. Salamat sa lahat ng mga kaibigan ko na dumamay (kilala ko at sana yung iba, makilala ko rin). Salamat Renee, nasabi mo rin ang mga gusto kong sabihin na hindi ko masabi. Salamat Punzi, sa panggawa ng bago kong theme song ngayon. "Tawanan mo ang iyong problema". Mas maganda yung masaya ang isinusulat natin di ba? Sabi nga ni Prada Mama, "we should all just give everyone else the benefit of the doubt and get on with the business of living." Salamat din Tita Bambit, tama ka dito: "I think what upsets you is that it destroys your faith in people, that people can be nice and kind and should desire to live in peace. This disillusionment of the inherent good in people can upset a kind heart such as yours... " Haaayyy!!!

- Long weekend dito sa amin ngayon, holiday dahil Memorial Day sa Monday. Ipinangako ko sa sarili ko na magpapahinga ako ng todo. Salamat nga pala kay Vonjobi, masaya ako na maging bahagi ng YAN ANG PINAY!

Congratulations to you and Rae!

Thank you for mentioning me in your post. I have been meaning to write about anonymous comments for quite some time now but I guess this little incident was the impetus I needed to finally come out with it.

I'm just glad the furor has died down and you were able to clear your name eventually. Unfortunately, in your case, you were guilty before proven innocent. It must have been horrible to stand there and be vilified when you knew your conscience was clean.

Hang in there, and keep on blogging!

RENEE, thanks for the kudos...the sun will shine better this summer!!!

Don't worry, I won't stop blogging, you will read more from me.

Punzi said...

Walang anuman. Kitang-kita naman na hindi ikaw yon dahil hindi mo style mag-troll. Your public saw through that immediately.

And besides, this blogging thing (likewise for me) is more of a labor of love than anything else. We have our day jobs and our families as priorities. And why will you build on a labor of love, only to destroy it in a single incident?

You have always conducted yourself here with civility, respect and humility (hikbi, hikbi...). Because the one who took your identity showed the opposite, people saw through this charade immediately.

regards and keep on bloggin'

Hi Sol. Congratulations sa mga awards mo. It seems you have been so busy and you just enjoy having so much to do. Your energy seem to be inexhaustible.

I am a little at a lost of what happened. What's the problem? I hope i could help. I was offline for a while due to busy scheds.

Anyway, ano man iyun I am sure you're get over it and everything will be just fine.

TEACHER SOL said...

MAJOR TOM, Thank you forthe kind words.

About this hullabaloo...simple, what happened to you happened to me also...now happening to some friends too. But this too shall pass. Don't worry about it.

TEACHER SOL said...

PUNZI, thanx your honor :D That means I'm now clear.

Let's keep blogging...blogging good things, it will cast evil spirits away...

Congrats to you, MARISOL!

congratulations on all your achievements past few days, including having a wonderful daughter. It makes everything else bearable.

as to the rest - my unsolicted 2 cents on the matter is it's either you spend time to explore and find the truth and be open to it or let it go.

We have to learn to choose what is important in our lives and choose the battles we will fight for.

In this world where nothing is sure and everything else can not be taken on face value, we have to learn not to assume and pre-judge people. It comes around, that is how I see it. We all need to respect each other to be respected. World is so big to allow everyone their own thoughts, opinions, beliefs and disposition. We don't have to like nor understand them all. :)

Like my Mom has always daid "If you have nothing good to say, don't say anything at all."

I hope you have a good long weekend and be able to rest and have a fresh new week ahead.

TEACHER SOL said...

LIZ, thank you. cheers to us teachers!!!

CERRIDWEN, thanks for the kudos. You and some friends said it very well, and I hope we all remember those words of wisdom in times when we need them most. It has passed, as I've always believed it will. PEACE!
