When people ask me to define love, I say, "Love is like handing someone a gun, having them point it at your heart, and trusting them to never pull the trigger." (Sponge Bob)

When they ask me why I laugh at my mistakes and even write them with pride in my blogs, I say, "I'm not crazy. I just don't give a damn!" (Daffy Duck)

When one time I was conducting a group activity, a student asked what road sign I love the most, I said, "I like dead end signs. I think they're kind. They at least have the decency to let you know you're going nowhere…" (Bugs Bunny)

And when for the nth time a friend would ask me what do I get from writing, I'm not even sure if there are good old souls out there visiting my site, I just smile and say, "Kung gusto mong maging manunulat, eh di magsulat ka. Simple." (Bob Ong)

And last night when Eva said she wants to quit from her work because nobody believes in her, her boss got mad at her, she doesn't even have friends at her agency, and she's crying like hell, I said, "Either you stay to prove your worth or you quit and just show them you're a loser, you have to strive for your happiness." (MY original)

My CHOICES: I remained believing in love. I continued spicing up my mistakes and rewriting my life, accepting failure but keep on dreaming until words would fade into thin air.

Sing Me Your Song Mommy

Sing me your song Mommy
your version of Brahms’ lullaby
embrace me tenderly
until with the birds I fly.

Sing me your song Mommy
your rendition of “I Love You Song”
even better than that of Barney
until the angels hum along.

Sing me your song Mommy
sing the song in your heart
I want to see you smile so sweetly
like clouds, a sugar-coated tart.

Sing me your song Mommy
sing me with daffodils in your ear
I will listen to you intently
like lilies kiss the water dear.

Sing me your song Mommy
let’s dance to its every tune
and in your arms you carry me
until darkness pleases the moon.

Sing me your song Mommy
let your music tug along dreamers
and fill our senses with the scent of a daisy
until the sun breaks our slumbers.

Happy Mother's Day to all great Moms out there! -- Moms who never stop giving even when they have given more than their cups could fill...

Greetings from the Josue family!
