I am in the middle of writing a new blog about me and Krystal’s supposed movie time at SM. But in the middle of my writing I just stopped with no reason at all. Truth is, I am in the mood to write. But I just stopped, well, just like that.
I made my first blog under cebuanawithlove.wordpress.com on March 24, 2011. And after few months, I started onthewingsofweng.blogspot.com. As you can see, I am new in this world of blogging.
Anyhow, I started to read my previous blogs. Some blogs were about happy memories, some were painful ones that made me, ugh!, emotional again. Tears fell. Let it be, I just want to pour out my emotions and cry anyways. It’s better for me to let go of my tears. Well, at least it cleansed my eyes.
Looking back, I started to write and blog for the purpose of expressing my thoughts and emotions. As an OFW in Saudi Arabia, it’s hard to be alone in a foreign land with a foreign language, different religion and culture. Not the literal “alone” because I have kabayans in my workplace to talk with every now and then. But, alone in the sense that I am far from my family. I am not able to talk to them the way I used to talk, laugh, argue with them when I was home. Long distance call is very expensive though we have two 15 minutes call free every month but that won’t suffice the loneliness and the joy of hearing the voices and talking to your loved ones. Technology like skype and YM is of a great help but sometimes, they (my family) are not available for a chitchat for some reasons. Example, my daughter will send me text message of “Mama, I will not online today because I have lots of school projects to do”. What can I do? nothing but just be emotional.
Awhile ago, I opened my cebuanawithlove.wordpress.com blog site and saw a comment from someone who happens to just pass by and read my blog. It really gives me joy to see someone leave comments and took time to read my simple blog. Knowing people took time to read my simple tips and humble stories, make my day.
I know deep in my heart, I am not a good writer. I’m just here in this world of blogging to express my simple thoughts. Somehow, I have shared simple tips on just about anything based on my experience. And somewhere, somehow, through my simple stories and in my own little way, I know I have touched someone’s heart as they have touched my soul too.
Friends, thank you for your support. Thank you for reading my simple stories.
