1,000 Notes from Heaven

“1,000 Notes from Heaven” is one of my works of mercy. I promise myself to write a thank you letter, give a gratitude note or send an appreciation message through email or other social media to at least 1, 000 people. I believe this is one of the best ways to be a blessing to my neighbors and to fulfill the will of Jesus for me. This activity leaves me looking forward to each day. You should try it! I just want to inform you beforehand, however, that this activity is addicting. Yep, at first, I was a little hesitant and shy to write a thank you or praise note to random people (usually in restaurants) and even to individuals I know but believing that this simple act of kindness will make them see the world in a better light pushed me. Now, I extremely love doing it without a tinge of reluctance.

The List

1. Ate Icely – my friend

2. Jacky  – my buddy

3. Jayron – my classmate

4. Edwina – Vendor of Squid balls in Victoria Mall

5. Barrio Bistro Staff – a restaurant

6. Mang Ineng’s – a diner

7. Michelle – my co-lector in Sta. Ana Parish

8. Kuya Lito – my co-lector and mentor in Sta. Ana Parish

9. Ate Tetchi – my co-lector and partner in Sta. Ana Parish

10. Ate Mayang – my aunt and former professor in NDMU

11. Kristina – my childhood best friend

12. Ma’am Jearvy – my classmate in my USEP French class

13. Ate Kristy – my co-lector and friend, a psychologist.

14. I honestly forgot who’s no 14 but certainly, there’s someone who received a thank you from me.

15. Gee and Kath- from Dunkin Donut’s (May 29, 2014)

Thank you Gee and Kath for the smile! :D

  • I will do my best to take photos next time. By the way, my parents and siblings always get hugs, kisses, gifts and thank yous from me so for now, they’re not included. 😀

Bucket List Success # 3: Volunteer in the Church

I joined the Commentators and Lectors Ministry (CLM) of Sta. Ana Shrine Parish, Davao city last November 2013. It was the best decision I made two years after leaving the ministry in South Cotabato because in some way, volunteering did help me in coping with depression. Now, I’m enormously grateful and happy. The first phase involved attending the monthly general meetings. After completing the required general meeting sessions, I was recommended for weekday mass reading and was assigned as lector for the 12 noon Monday mass for two months. Finally, I was promoted and allowed to serve during Sunday masses.

If I could give only give one advice to those battling with depression,  that would be, “serve God and you would never go hungry and thirsty.”

 

During my Monday mass schedule "A life lived for God leaves a lasting legacy."
