If I Had Known

that the year 2007 would have been a year of heartaches, breakups, deaths and new beginnings, I would have…

Flown to Cotabato earlier so that I could have brought Mio there as I promised my Grandpa..


Booked a different wedding for the 15th of September and the 8th of December…

Greeted RC a Merry Christmas three Christmases ago, like I did two days ago, so I could have given Mio a straight answer when he first asked about his Dad…

Spent more time with my friends and saved many weekends with MY friends…




Said my proper goodbyes and thank yous to the Gs and the Rs and the square men who I sincerely grew so fond of…

BUT I COULDN’T HAVE

Enjoyed my own company in my self-dates at Cibo…

Finished all the work I was able to staying late in the office…

Discovered Mio’s fascination for books and rubic cubes over coffee jelly frappuccino…





Known I was actually into trip hop, house and all these songs I can’t not listen to everyday…

Actually attended the weddings I’m so proud to be part of and dress up for these receptions…



Had the time to be an active Parent-Teacher Homeroom Rep for Mio…

Had enough time to actually take my son to school, go to work and party…


Looked back at my past with pride and joy rather than being judged for it for the longest time.

SO FOR 2008…

I shall continue to rise above and be the better person I am becoming.

Pray harder and be grateful.

Finish my food, eat faster, stop biting my nails, go home and actually sleep.

Save!

Work harder.

Buy a dvd player, a digicam and a new tv for the house.

And if God wills it, I shall smile back when our eyes meet.

I will travel and take Mio places. I should treat my family to the best things they deserve.


And I will fall in love again. With the kind of man who will take care of me, honor his word, speak the truth, love Mio, value my efforts and see beyond the years past. I know i will.
