Precious Moments… Philippines

“If it is good for your soul, do it.”

I’ve been amazed by these cute angels with tear-drop huge eyes, clothed in pastel hues ever since I was a child, and just recently I discovered that the artist behind was here in the Philippines. It was a happy and precious moment of discovery…looking forward to meet Mr. Sam Butcher..(–,)

Don’t they look familiar to you? (–,)

Learning that “Precious Moment” is actually here in my native land, I did not wait long to witness it in my on eyes. I immediately asked hon then to visit the place right away.

We had our dinner first. With great anticipation of unanticipated delights waiting for us at the 2nd floor where the showroom is. I must say, the people were a reflection of Mr. Butcher. The kindness and all the goodness of his heart mirrored by his people. He must be so happy and proud.

We were surprised by a menagerie of all the collection they created through the years. They’ve been in the business for the past 35 years. Mr. Sam is more than 70 years old already just like my late dad.

He passionately believed in the joy of inspiring others. He was very humble, tagged to be one of the most beloved artists in America, his humility is all over. I was informed that regularly he visits the shop to mingle with customers and personally sign the items being bought by his followers.

At the time of our visit, he was scheduled to visit the week after, it’s just that I have work then though I’m still hoping I’ll have the chance to be seeing him. He is based in Kalibo, Aklan and I was thinking it’s just great If I am to meet him there. Soon.

The place felt so light and happy, I think they’re God-centered. The staff speaks well of Mr. Sam. It’s very evident he was so loved. Proofs that he is a kind and good person.

I must say it’s heroic and angelic to be someone like Sam to make an impact to this world, inspiring people through his own inspiration. The park and the chapel were a manifestation of how great love he have for God and His children. I am so blessed to be inspired by him too.

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
