How do you measure a year?

with 4 comments

People measure their year through their accomplishments, trials, significant experiences, blessings, and so many other ways. I do that too, but no matter how I look at it, 2007 has been an amazing and very blessed year for me. Sure it hurt some (or a lot, at times) but all the happiness and looooooove certainly more than made up for that.

So how exactly has 2007 been? Let’s see what happened to me this year.

In 2007 I…

2007 in Pictures

Counting my blessings

This year I thank the good Lord for…

  • surrounding me with family and good friends
  • the best friend I could ever ask for. I wouldn’t have made it through this year without her. :)
  • the new people I’ve met and became friends with (G13, UPSCA, other college friends)
  • pointing me towards UP. It was one of the best decisions of my life. :)
  • making me part of the most amazing block ever, because He knew I was so terrified of being with classmates na hindi ko ka-wavelength.
  • never leaving my side, even though sometimes ako yung lumalayo.
  • the many surprises in my academic life.
  • scholarships! :)
  • all the love I’ve received.
  • all the material blessings. Minsan I feel guilty na nga for being so spoiled.
  • relatively good health.
  • happiness.
  • all the lessons I’ve learned.
  • all the challenges, and for helping me overcome them all.
  • his forgiveness and mercy even though I wasn’t always nice this year.
  • taking care of the people I love.
  • Pisay. This year marked the end of my four-year adventure, and I can’t be happier with the way things turned out.
  • making me grow more as a person and as His child.
  • all the experiences that have helped me become who I am right now.
  • so many more things that I can’t remember right now, LOL.

How about love?

If we’re gonna measure 2007 by the amount of love I’ve received this year, we’re never gonna stop na. My family (not just the immediate family, but the extended family as well) has been closer than ever, and my friends are the best everrr. Kulang na lang talaga ay lovelife. Ay, may ganun!

Anyways, happy happy new year to everyone! :) Hope you had fun in 2007, and hope you have a blessed 2008 ahead of you. :)
