A Rainbow After the Storm




I'm dragging myself back to blogging today, after days of going around the house and doing whatever comes to my mind. I finished reading three pocketbooks, and spent hours watching shows on cable. Sometimes, I sleep the whole afternoon and lie awake at night. Today, I woke up refreshed and decided to visit my sites. Thank you guys for the regular visits, though I was inactive for quite some time.

Although I still feel lonely for losing Elaine, I feel that God has always been with us. And after the loss, God delivered another gift to us, one that reminds me that life just has to go on.

My husband called me early Sunday morning (that was Father's Day). I felt excitement in his voice, though he tried to sound casual about it. He said he just got a promotion, he is now the manager of their company's new network program. Previously, he was the network administrator but now, a new department has been launched solely for their JD Edward program, and he sits on top of it. I know this didn't come easy for him, he had to attend seminars in different places like Johannesburg, South Africa and more recently, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I am just so happy for him because the truth is, I had been hoping for such a promotion years ago. Honestly, I lost hope because there has never been a Filipino manager in any important department of their company. I think he is the first ever! So I believe that the company truly sees his loyalty and capacity to manage his own department.

The news is like rainbow after the storm in my life. It gives me the strength to move on, it makes me realize that my family is still here, needing me to keep them together. Storms could shake our lives at times when we least expect them, and they could damage us to some extent, but all we really have to remember is that they always pass. All we have to remember, most of all, is that there's a rainbow after a storm.

Hi friend! Life must go on. God loves your niece that he taken the pain away from her to be with him at peace. It is really hard to accept but I know soon you will fully recover from it.
Congrats to hubby! A job well done and a new task to succeed. Cheers!!!

Thank you Cris. The part that God has mercifully freed her from suffering lightens the pain that we all feel on her passing.

I really am so proud of my hubby. It goes to show that no matter what race you have in your veins, hard work and dedication always push you up the ladder of success.

You are so right, Killua. Our faith gives us the strength to carry our pain. At times like this, I always seek comfort in the poem "Footprints in the Sand".
