The saddest moment of my life was when my father and brother died. But God always works in a mysterious ways, with them gone physically, I'd come to realize that life is too short and that we should never live in hatred. We should always show our affection while our love ones are still alive..

the saddest thing that happened to my life was when Akesha was born 7 weeks early....

we thought she will not survive...thanks to God! as what manang rose have said...God works in mysterious ways...I completely agree with her....

God is good....all the time...:)

Hi Rose,
Losing your father and your brother are sure hard to accept. I'm glad that you took that in a very positive light and it even change your perspective in life. Yes, life is too short to waste on negative things like hatred and dislikes. We should use it loving those people that God has given us. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Dhemz,
Miracle baby pala talaga si Akesha. She's God's special gift to you and your husband. Mabait talaga ang Diyos. Ninais Niyang mabuhay ang isang anghel para bigyan kayo nang ligaya. Treasure her well but never spoil her. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

hmmm first of all, hi Sir Mel *wink**

Siguro po, the saddest moment/part of my life was when my parents finally separated =( lagi po sila nag-aaway, di po sila magkasundo and my mom has bigger dreams kaya she decided to file an annulment. Malungkot lang pag may special ocassions or school affairs na dapat present ang both parents. I still feel lucky dahil never kami pinbayaan ng parents namin, they did their responsibilities in their own. I grew up my dad, and my mom never failed to send money for our needs. Pinaka-malungkot talaga ang first months na hiwalay na talaga sila.

I guess time heals all wounds.. they are happy now at friends na po sila.

Hi Bambie,
Traumatic nga yung paghihiwalay ng magulang mo. Napakahirap magadjust lalo na yung first month. Pero God is good and He made a way na maging friends din sila later on at napalaki naman kayong mga anak nila sa mahusay na pamamaraan. Ganun lang talaga ang buhay. Hindi mo makukuha ang lahat nang gusto mo. We just trust God that He will give us what is best for us. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

dhemz said...

Salamat sa reply Kuya.....:)Just got home from class

nako korek, we dont tolerate her behavior lalo na sya lang isa....we always teach her na she can't get everything she wants...and money doesn't grow on trees....

been doing our best to be a good parents...we may not be the best...but we are trying hard to discipline her and grow a responsible person someday....

iba kasi mga bata sa US...mga spoiled brat....yan kasi na noticed ko sa mga cousins ni Akesha dito....

tapos dpa marunong magsabi ng "excuse me and thank you"....

anyhow, about pala sa contest kuya...salamat po ng marami sa suporta....lam mo bang they change the rules....at napakahirap ng rules nila ngayon....such a pain in a butt....lol!

hope d mag back out yung ibang botante because of the rules change.....

The saddest moment for me would be the terrorist attack in New York City on 9/11. That day marked the day that speaks it all about hatred and evil. The Iraqi war that started soon after that, the victims that were captured and beheaded, non-stop violence in the middle east and more terrorist attacks in other countries. The 9/11 attack opened up a pandora box that unleashed more pain and suffering to the world. Despite it all, we need to remain strong and don't lose faith and hope.

bingkee said...

Saddest moments? There were a lot of sad moments as much as happy ones. But I don't want to remember them anymore.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Dhemz,
Pasensiya ka na sa unsolicited advice ko. Concerned lang talaga ako sa pag upbring nyo kay Akesha. Since nasa US nga siya at sabi mo nga spoiled brats ang mga bata diyan ay baka maging spoiled brat din si Akesha pag laki. Kawawa naman . Alam mo kasi since she was a miracle baby (born 7 weeks premature)eh baka maging over protective kayong magasawa at di sinasadya ay ma spoil nyo siya. Sabi nga sa Bible, spare the rod, spoil the child. Hindi naman kailangang paluin siya. Maging firm lang when you say no para maintindihan niya na hindi sa lahat nang oras ay pwede ang gusto niya.
Tungkol naman sa Smile Contest wala tayong magagawa dahil yun ang rules nila. Sumunod na lang tayo at mangampanya sa maraming bloggers nating kakilala at katsokaran. Nakaboto na ako at nag comment na rin. Napansin ko lang na maraming comments ang na delete nila katulad nang mareng Rose mo, hehehe, lol. Kawawa naman sila. Thanks for your welcome visit and comments. God bless you all always. BTW, I will pray nga pala ang victory ni Akesha the way I did with Rylie. Mananalo tayo friend.

Ciao.

Hi Rose Belle,
We can not do anything about that except to pray for God's divine justice to prevail over the earth. Some sectarian and fanatical beliefs teach their members the glory of dying for their cause and going straight to heaven after that. That's the deception of the devil who has cast his spell over these fanatical groups. Man must rediscover his true heritage to change the direction our planet is heading to. Thanks for your visit and valuable comments. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Bingkee,
I understand your point of view. If there were sad moments in one's life, it will serve no positive purpose to relive them all over again. Thanks for your visit and your point of view. God bless you always.

Its hard to recall the saddest moment in my life Sir Mel kasi ang dami kasi. But as of this moment my saddest moment in life is thinking about my parents with their illness. My parents are getting old, my mom has a high blood pressure at diabetic, and my father been complaining with his stomach, recently he passed out, due to too much pain and they can't figure it out what is going on. Plus, my lil sister who went to Dubai last january was sent back home from her employer last March because she has Hepatitis. Its sad, coz she left philippines healthy came home sick with debts on her shoulder. I'm always lift it up to God in my prayer that they have good health and feel better soon.Isa pang nakakalungkot kasi, yung kapatid ko na nasa vegas hindi mn lng tumutulong kahit magpadala mn lng ng pera para sa gamot. Yung asawa ko na tamang tama lng ang sweldo atleast nagiisip sa kalagayan ng parents ko at mga kapatid. It really made me sad though thinking how my sister live her luxurious life when she has the parents and sisters needed her help. She neglected most of parents call and ignore them when they are online. Well, thats life parang buhay ano. My only prayer is gumaling mn lng mga parents ko and my sister.

shydub said...

Thanks for this post Sir Mel parang nailabas ko dito lahat ng hinaing sa buhay buhay na parang life lifey. Thans sa comments nga pala at ang nakakatawang alaska mo. alaskador ka pala Sir Mel, siguro enjoy ang anak mo sa company mo.

chubskulit said...

Wahhhhhh naiiyak ako sa sinabi mo tsang bakla (Shydub) Yan po tawagan namin kasi badingding yan eh.. Hayaan mo bakla makakraos din tayo, ganun din kami.. Kami rin lang inaasahan ng mga kapatid ko at ni Mama. I just thank the Lord that He always provide for us.

Yan din po KuyaM ang reason why I do paid posting kasi it help us lalo na ngayong pinag aaral ko kapatid kong dalawa.. Pasensya na po, naging tambakan ng problema ang blog mo hahaha..

About EJ pala, lagi ko naman po syang dinidisiplina, ang asawa ko kasi ang very lax, ako authoritarian ako when it comes to discipline gaya ng Papa ko dati.

Sige po at humaba na pala ang litanya ko hahaha..

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Dubster,
Ganoon talaga ang buhay. We have to make the most of everything. So that you can have peace of mind and you can help your parents and sister, take them up to the Lord so that He will take care of them. Hindi ba sabi ni Lord, Cast your burdens upon Me those who are heavily laden. Come to Me and I will give you rest. Verse sa Bible yun na kinanta din ni Basil Valdez. Ang lahat nang kabigatan natin ay iatang natin sa Panginoon at Kanya itong papasanin para sa atin at tayo ay bibigyan Niya nang kapahingahan. Dumadaan tayo sa napakaraming pagsubok dahil gusto ni Lord na pagbuksan natin Siya sa ating puso. Kung nananahan sa ating puso si Lord hindi tayo matitinag magunaw man ang mundo. Sana ay dasalin mo yung panalangin ng pagtanggap at isuko mo ang buhay mo kay Jesus at bibigyan ka Niya nang isang bagong buhay na ganap at kasiya siya. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Shydub,
Hindi naman ako alaskador. Maaaring napagtripan lang kita nung magcomment ako, hehehe, lol. Masyado kasing seryoso ang mga posts ko kaya kung minsan gumagamit ako nang konting sense of humor. Natatawa ako sa iyo. Daladalawa pa ang pangalang gamit mo sa pag comment. Para kang si Rose, hehehe, lol. Pero welcome na welcome yung pag comment mo. Alam mo naman tayong mga bloggers, ang nagpapasaya sa atin ay mga comments. Parang napakalungkot pag walang nagko comment sa post mo. Thanks sa pagbisita at pag comment. God bless you all always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Rose,
Kaya nga hanga ako sa inyong mga Pinay expats. Napakauliran ninyong asawa, ina, anak at kapatid. Alam ko kung paano mo itinataguyod ang mga kapatid mo. At sa puntong yan, pagpapalain ka naman ni Lord. Natutuwa ako sa inyong mga Pinay wives nang mga foreign husbands. You make our country proud sa pagiging exemplary ninyo. Okay lang sa akin na maglahad kayo nang inyong mga kabigatan. Dahil duon kaya ako inilagay ni Lord sa internet buhat sa pagmiminister ko sa simbahan at cell groups. Kaligayahan ko nang makatulong sa mga may kabigatan nang loob. Tungkol kay EJ, alam kong hindi mo siya pababayaang lumaking spoiled brat. Tama ka, ikaw ang disciplinarian sa inyo at ikaw din ang nagdadala nang pamilya ninyo. Ikaw yung me strong character at determinasyon sa iyong pamilya para mag succeed sa life. Mukha ngang mabait at malambot si John sa inyong mga anak. Congrats nga pala sa pagkapanalo ni Rylie. Mabait talaga ang Diyos. Hindi Niya binigo ang ating panalangin. Natatawa nga ako sa tawagan ninyong bakla. Nakakaaliw talaga, hehehe, lol. Sige, thanks sa dalaw mo at comments. God bless you all always.

Hi sis Pia,
I commiserate with you. That was indeed a very sad day in your life. But life goes on. We should just entrust our life to God and He will surely grant us what He deems best for us. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Dhemz,
Pareho pala kayo nang problema ni Shy tungkol sa mga pamilya ninyo. Sige idadagdag ko kayo sa prayer list ko. Medyo humahaba na nga, lol. Tungkol kay Akesha nagmamalasakit lang friend. Ayoko namang masabi mong nag unsolicited advice ako. Bahala ka friend kung anong maging desisyon mo sa Smile Contest para kay Akesha. Ano man ang desisyon mo suportahan daka, lol. Thanks ulit sa pagbisita. God bless you all always.

Dhemz said...

salamat for including us on your prayer list kuya...nako...haba na pala nyan.....ehhehehe!

ang buhay nga naman...we stumble...we get up...and we move on....

hala go go tau...bahala na...manalo matalo...

I feel better na after na ilabas ko ang mga hinanaing ko about sa contest na yan....kakaloka...hahhaha...sayang nga naman yung mga taong sumuporta kay Akesha...ayoko rin na madismaya kayong lahat....salamat po ulit.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Dhemz,
Napakasipag at napaka thoughtful mo sa mga ka blogs mo. Kaya siguro marami kang readers at supporters. Prayer is just one of the services I render sa pagba blog ko. Commitment ko na yon kay Lord. Mabuti naman at itutuloy mo ang laban para kay Akesha. Katulad nga nang kasabihan na, it's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Pwede din nating sabihing, it's better to have joined and have fun but lost (sa mandadaya)than never to have joined at all, lol. At least nakita mo kung sino talaga yung nagmamahal sa iyo at sino yung susuporta sa iyo hanggang sa dulo. Di ba achievement na din iyon? Di ba nakakapagapataba nang puso pag marami kang kaibigang handang tumulong sa iyo sa oras na kailangan mo? Thanks sa desisyon mong ituloy ang laban. Thanks for your visit and honest comments. God bless you all always. Pakikurot nga si darling Akesha, lol.

The saddest moment of my life is when my parents passed away. And I had a nephew who died after my sister gave birth to him. Those are my saddest.
