I trully believe in God. He is my Lord, my saviour. He is the center in my life. Being a Catholic means sensing God`s presence and power sacramentally. We gradually come to understand that there is more to life than just what meets the eye or enters the ear. We gradually come to realize that God is present to us and touches us, for example, through the beauty of a sunset or a snowfall, the care and concern of our mother, the delight of being in love and our desire to give of ourselves to other people.
We, Filipinos enjoy the feeling of having and knowing family members are around us. From cousins, aunt, uncles and grandparents, some families share their homes, celebrate holidays and lend a hand to relativeswhen its needed.
When we have people visit our homes, we always welcome them with smiles, conversation and food. In our culture, we always respect and follow what our parents and adults advise us to do. Not talking back, and trusting the adults around us has always been a part of who we are.
From the "mano", to say saying "po" and "opo" to our elders, these words that are part of our language show how we resñect people. Filipinos are generally friendly and accomodating. We have the "bayanihan" spirit in us and it is why in times of calamities or disaster, Filipinos are mostly helpful to each other. During the times whwn we don t have the means to accomplish something, we find ingenious ways of using what we have to solve our problems.
Because we've been trough a lot of trials in our history, Filipinos have learned not to be depressed. Rather, we find a joke and try to have fun even during times of difficulty. We dont like to waste anything since we dont have a lot. We are carrful of what we have, knowing that it will serve us well for a long time. Filipinos love to be inlove. This is sensationalized trough q certain emotion called "kilig", and strengthens every time a guy makes an effort to court the girl he likes. Pinoy have always been know for treating their guest warmly, wether natives or foreigner. The filipino hospitality is something to take in pride in. Tourists usually comment on it during their trip as something they remember our people by, more than the food they eat or the places that they have visit. I love being a Filipino citizen and im PROUD of it. ❤❤
Dear Future Partner,
I know you are out there. Someday I will see you when you will be here sitting right next to me. I will tell you how my day was, how it made me feel lonely, and how strongly I acted.
I will tell you, how one day, I fought with myself just to trail along the world. Accept the bitter reality of people around me. Yet loving them compassionately, I learned how life can be.To my future man, i hope that we will love each other until the end. Together we will share what we have, care for each other and fight for our love and make a happy family.
