motherhood is tough 24 hour job,no pay,no day off, sometimes it is unappreciated, but yet resignation is impossible. A mother is a woman who created by God to bring love, joy, happiness and caring into his world. I am so glad God has created a woman to be a mother, even though motherhood is a full time job, a mother's work is never done.
Mommies are so special in our lives that we extend to do anything and everything for their smile and happiness. And why shouldn't they be admired? After all, they play several roles for us, as our mentor, friend, sister, partner, and role model. No matter how far we move from our mothers, the unique place that they hold in our hearts cannot be replaced by anyone. They will be remembered and cherished for all the love, kindness, and support they have bestowed upon us. Though we love our moms, with increasing job and family responsibilities, we fail to express that profound feeling. Let's take this opportunity on Mother's Day to greet her, to wish her, to thank her, and to make her feel how special she is for us, that she is still loved and cared for.
M-O-T-H-E-R "M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old, "T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER", A word that means the world to me.
One of the tourist spots of Cebu City ,Philippines........
Built in 1972, the Cebu Taoist Temple is located in Beverly Hills Subdivision in Cebu City, Philippines. The temple was built by Cebu's substantial. Chinese community. With an elevation of 300 meters above sea level,the temple is a towering, multi-tiered, multi-hued attraction accessible by three separate winding routes.
Unlike the neighboring Phu Sian Temple, the Taoist temple is open to the worshipers and non-worshipers alike. A ritual among devotees is where one prays to the gods to grant one's wish. The ritual includes washing of hands, going inside the chapel barefoot and dropping two blocks of wood. If the blocks of wood are both face up then one could make a wish. If not then it is not yet the time for one's wish to be granted and one has to come to the temple some other time.
The temple is the center of worship for Taoism, the religion which follows the teachings of the ancient Chinese philosopher, Lao Tze. Another ritual among Taoist devotees, which is done during Wednesdays and Sundays, is the climbing of its 81 steps (representing the 81 chapters of Taoism scriptures) to light joss sticks and have their fortune read by the monks.
Some guide books and travel agencies offer trips to the temple or as a side-trip in a tour around Cebu City. But it is more popular with grade school students. No student who grew up in Cebu City or the neighboring Mandaue City has not gone to the temple in any one of their field trips.
The entrance to the temple is a replica of the Great Wall of China. The temple includes a chapel, a library, a souvenir shop and a wishing well. The spacious balconies offer a scenic view of the downtown Cebu.
I really don't know what came into our minds that
we are going to Taoist at exactly 1 o'clock in the afternoon.

The memories that I have missed when I was in CIC
the times that I was with my classmates and friends.
The activity that we had when we were in our last year
We did not only enjoy ourselves and bond together but we also help
the mother earth.
We have planted Mangrove trees in Talisay, Cebu
At last, after spending 4 years in high school
I was able to finish it with confidence, pride and honor!
Another job well done!
Thanks a lot to my alma mater CIC, for teaching me a lot of things. For
the values that you have inculcated to me, the knowledge that you have shared
and for the memorable experience that we have been through.
Going Back to the corner where I first saw you Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I'm not gonna move Got some words on cardboard, got your picture in my hand Saying, "If you see this girl can you tell her where I am?"
Some try to hand me money, they don't understand I'm not broke I'm just a broken hearted man I know it makes no sense but what else can I do How can I move on when I'm still in love with you
'cause if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be Thinkin maybe you'll come back here to the place that we'd meet And you'll see me waiting for you on the corner of the street So I'm not moving, I'm not moving
Policeman says, "Son you can't stay here" I said, "There's someone I'm waiting for if it's a day, a month, a year" Gotta stand my ground even if it rains or snows If she changes her mind this is the first place she will go
[Chorus:] 'cause If one day you wake up and find that you're missing me And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be Thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we'd meet And you'll see me waiting for you on our corner of the street So I'm not moving, I'm not moving, I'm not moving, I'm not moving
People talk about the guy that's waiting on a girl There are no holes in his shoes but a big hole in his world
Maybe I'll get famous as the man who can't be moved Maybe you wont mean to but you'll see me on the news And you'll come running to the corner 'cause you'll know it's just for you I'm the man who can't be moved
Going back to the corner where I first saw you Gonna camp in my sleeping bag, I'm not gonna move
The daughter of Leto and Zeus, and the twin of Apollo. Artemis is the goddess of the wilderness, the hunt and wild animals, and fertility (she became a goddess of fertility and childbirth mainly in cities). She was often depicted with the crescent of the moon above her forehead and was sometimes identified with Selene (goddess of the moon). Artemis was one of the Olympians and a virgin goddess. Her main vocation was to roam mountain forests and uncultivated land with her nymphs in attendance hunting for lions, panthers, hinds and stags. Contradictory to the later, she helped in protecting and seeing to their well-being, also their safety and reproduction. She was armed with a bow and arrows which were made by Hephaestus and the Cyclopes. Artemis was very possessive. She would show her wrath on anyone who disobeyed her wishes, especially against her sacred animals. Even the great hero Agamemnon came upon the wrath of Artemis, when he killed a stag in her sacred grove. His punishment came when his ships were becalmed, while he made his way to besiege Troy. With no winds to sail his ships he was told by the seer Calchas that the only way Artemis would bring back the winds was for him to sacrifice his daughter Iphigenia. Some versions say he did sacrifice Iphigenia, others that Artemis exchanged a deer in her place, and took Iphigenia to the land of the Tauri (the Crimea) as a priestess, to prepare strangers for sacrifice to Artemis. So, If anyone of you disobeys her sacred animals then beware your date might be at your back right now.
