My mother is my greatest mentor---her Spirit filled passion and her hard work , compassion and love made me the person that I am today. Though our personalities are opposite, our spirits are the same.

Hi Bingkee,
It's nice to know that your mother had been the greatest influence in your life. Differences are not that important because we all have individual differences. What's important was that you were molded in the right moral and ethical values in life. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Dorothy,
Wow, that's really something but as always, TO GOD BE THE GLORY. I don't feel this blog deserved that honor. But anyway, thank you so much for your appreciation of my blog. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

hello kuya Mel...this question made me wonder who really is the greatest influence in my life....am not exactly sure kung sino...hhehehe.....

at this moment...yung inspiration ko is my family (hubby and Akesha)...I am going back to school for the benefit of my family and for myself....iba kasi ang buhay dito sa US....unlike sa pinas...mas prefer ko pa yung buhay sa pinas kahit simple lang ang buhay.

I still have some doubts...either to pursue a degree in nursing or just be a stay-at-home mom...and make some money while blogging....

anyhow, salamat sa comments at dalaw...nako...kaka flattered naman yung comment mo kuya Mel..thanks in a million...you are very much appreciated.

Hi Dhemz,
Buti naman at naituloy mo ang pagaaral mo. It is always a right decision to study. Siguro nga ang mister mo at anak mo ang greatest influence sa buhay mo at sila rin ang pinakamahalagang tao sa buhay mo. Wherever you are right now is exactly where God intended you to be. So make the most out of your present situation and offer everything for the glory of the Lord. That way you can be assured that He will bless all your ways. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

If the Lord Jesus is not the greatest influence in our lives where are we? And I was blessed by parents who taught me of Him, and showed me features of Him.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi David,
Amen to that. You are fortunate that you have parents who molded you in the right spiritual values in life. Thanks for your visit and comments.

Hi Mel, this is a great question! First and foremost is of course Jesus his words that we could read anyday and anytime we want is written in the Bible. But aside HIM...my other great influence is
1. my mother - she taught me to pray and be steadfast with my faith in God.
2. my father - though he died early in his life but he showed us a man of integrity
3. Fr. Sonny Ramirez - he gave me so much inspiration when at the time I needed a help.
4. Padre Pio and Mother Teresa by reading their book I knew that in this generation we can still make a difference.
5. my husband he is such a good and loving person, he showed me that life is so beautiful and just being mad or sad is not worthwhile.
6. YOU MEL, you are one of those few that gives an influence to me. What ever it is that is a secret hehe!

Hi Kim,
It is heart warming to know that there are so many who made a great influence in your life. But I think the greatest is the influence of our Lord Jesus Christ who gave His life so that we can have eternal life. All the others are so worthy of having a great influence in your life all except the last one. I reserve that honor to the Lord. TO GOD BE THE GLORY. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

parang nahirapan ako sa simpleng tanong nyo... ang naiisip ko lang sa ngayon ay yung tatay at asawa ko.. kasi yung father ko halos sya na ang nagpalaki sa amin, at i really admire him for being helpful. kahit walang wala sya, tutulong pa rin kung kaya nya. Di po sya kuripot at makwenta at siguro yun ang namana or natutunan ko sa kanya.. Same as my hubby, halos magka-ugali sila ng tatay ko kaya siguro agad nahulog loob ko sa kanya.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Bambie,
Sa tingin ko nga tatay mo ang may pinakamalaking impluwensya sa buhay mo. Kaya nga nang namili ka ng mapapangasawa ay father image pa rin ang napili mo. Nothing wrong with that since you associate your father to the qualities you like in a man. Just be sure that you don't disregard Jesus' influence in your life. He will definitely make a difference in your life. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.
