A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: “If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups have been taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups… And then you began eyeing each other’s cups.

Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of life we live.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee. Savor the coffee, not the cups!

The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything. 

Live simply. 
Love generously. 
Care deeply. 
Speak kindly. 




I miss you


I miss you in the morning
And when the sunset fades away,
The ache within my heart- to know were miles away
And it just will not go away

My heart fills with love for you
When I think how much you can be that caring person
As I relive all the happiness
and the joy  felt when I  shared it with you

You’re with me in every moment ( I am alone)
And in every move I make ( with you )
Lie the memories I have for you
That I will never forsake

For now I will keep you where it is safe in my heart, in my thoughts in my prayer…



How to stop obsessing with the negatives and become a positive leader

Like a drop of poison in a glass of water, one problem has the power to pollute everything. It’s natural to obsess over one bad thing and forget many good things. Successful leaders never let one negative thing contaminate everything. One thing thinking: Negative qualities One thing thinking contaminates everything when one negative quality becomes […]

Butterfly and Kisses

For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair;
Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it’s my first ride.”
“I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried.”
Oh, with all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning And butterfly kisses at night.

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair.
“You know how much I love you, Daddy,
But if you don’t mind I’m only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time.”
Oh with all that I’ve done wrong I must have done something right
to deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night.

Happy Father’s Day Daddy!


Sending hugs and kisses to the moon and back.

Fly me to the moon…

Oh it’s often use many words to say a simple thing
It takes thought and time and rhyme
To make a poem sing
With music and words I’ve been playing

For you I have written this song
To be sure you known what I’m saying
I’ll translate as I go along

Fly me to the moon,
And let me play among the stars.
Let me see what spring is like,
On jupiter and mars.
In other words, hold my hand,
In other words, darling kiss me.

Fill my heart with song,
And let me sing forever more,
You are all I long for,
All I worship and adore,
In other words, please be true,
In other words, I love you.


I love you for sentimental reasons…

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I’ll give you my heart

I love you and you alone were meant for me
Please give your loving heart to me
And say we’ll never part

I think of you every morning
Dream of you every night
Darling, I’m never lonely
Whenever you are in sight

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I’ve given you my heart


**Daughter’s thoughts on Father’s day

One of the songs you used to sing with us is now played on the radio- na alala kita dad at namiss bigla, it’s gonna be 8th year without you on father’s day. I hate going to the malls this week because it reminds me of you so much- 8 yrs na pala ako wala binibilhan ng gift pag father’s day. Na miss ko ang malamig mo boses tuwing kakanta ka, pero mas hawig mo parin boses ni Elvis Presley at Paul Anka.  I will visit you again this Sunday.



Salamat sa Pag dalaw


You made my birthday extra special- dahil sa lahat ng aso inalagaan ko- ikaw lang ang bumalik at dumalaw sa panaginip. Nayakap kita for one last time. I guess what we have was really forever.Alam mo how much I missed you- everyday- my life was never been the same everytime uuwi ako ng bahay- ikaw ang hinahanap hanap ko- but I am glad to see you clean at healthy sa heaven. Si daddy hanapin mo ha- sya naman original mo Amo- send my hugs and kisses. I love you Pippen – who will always have  a spot in my heart for always….
