DREAMS AND ESCAPES

Happy Pentecost Sunday! Mom and I attended the 9am mass at St. Jude Thaddeus Parish with one of my favorite priests, Fr. Matthew Fernandez of the Marian Missionaries of the Holy Cross as the mass presider. I admire how he shares his homily, tagos sa buto at sa puso, as they say in Tagalog.

About arlene

Life starts with a beautiful dream. Life starts in somehow believing that one day you’ll get what you wished and prayed for. Life starts with something you believe you can do and dream about. My entries here are mostly about my journey as a cancer patient, a cancer survivor, a mother, a friend, and about the books I read, places I want to visit and have visited, people I want to meet someday and mostly about the daily grind of simple living. Dreams and Escapes is about having enough faith to go on, the will to live no matter how difficult life may seem sometimes and grateful appreciations of all the things one holds dear. It is about the belief that I could share a little of my journey through writing and writing is an escape for me. When things get a little too hard to bear, I put them into perspective by sharing them here. Dreams and Escapes, why not?
