My Niece' Birthday

It's my niece May's birthday yesterday, she's my big brother's second child, my goddaughter and my niece who bears the same name as mine she's Rachel May De Leon and I'm Racel De Leon (my maiden name), sounding like she's my own kid lol! She's a sweet niece and I think the most behave among the kids of De Leon, that includes my kids of course! She's a darling!

My two girls planned going there after their classes; they asked their school service to bring them directly to May's birthday. Since they're excited I let them go a little early before me reminding me them to bring extra clothes as I don't like seeing them in school uniforms on social functions or occasions. Josh would have to wait for me since he's too young.

I arrived at the house and saw Josh asleep already, my Mom told me he's waiting patiently for me so I changed his clothes and woke him up when we're both ready. Gen & Ruth were so busy and happy to be with their first cousins and asked me to let them sleep there. Hubby didn't let them as we wake up early on Sundays.

Birthday was attended by May's classmate friends, cousins and family members only. We had pasta, chicken, buko pandan and once again for the 3rd time this month - a birthday cake!


God Is My Guide

I’ve heard some bad news lately about recessions here and abroad. I watched the news about Intel closing up leaving thousands of employees jobless. Everywhere I go I always hear news about how it’s hard to be employed nowadays and here I am filing up my resignation for the second time, first time last May 2008.

My decision is firm and I thanked God that He gave me enough courage and wisdom on my decision to leave the company whom I stayed for 16 years. He gave me the strength to give up my job and not be afraid of the financial crisis that’s hounding this country. Well I’ve worked since I graduated from college and I had various tech jobs as I’m a graduate of Computer Engineering but my current employer taught me a lot in other fields of work. He assigned me in Technical Proposal and later had a stint as Assistant of Personnel Manager for mobilization of engineering staff. Then he transferred me to another company of him and involved me in telecommunications work such as billing, collection, carrier settlement, accounting and human relations.

I almost rounded up various departments in our company and I can only say that through all this work that I didn’t learned from my college course God guided and given me enough knowledge to learn the craft and use them in my work. God is so good….all the time.
