My Mom's Letter to God

We found this letter amongst her effects..
This was probably written 2-3 months prior to passing away.

*pls click to enlarge

Dear Wonderful Creator of the Universe,

I do not know how I will surrender to you my soul- with a body that is whole or not whole. Now, it no longer matters- I am READY.

You've given me the sweetest life. The honey of success, the warm friendship of my friends, the fleeting joy of material wealth, but most valuable of all is the feeling of true deep love of my family, most especially my husband and children.

I tossed in the waves of faith and fear but now should my creator choose to redeem my soul, I will no longer ask why. I rarely did ask why. Deep within me, I knew there is a reason for everything.

The reason is now unfolding - " To awaken thy love in all hearts." I offer to you my husband's and children's LOVE. My greatest gift to you My God for all the goodness in my life.

We are so proud of our Mom and we want the whole world to know how exceptional she is.

My Mom

Jul Dizon - 1943- 2009

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing about the passing away of my beautiful Mom. The grief is overwhelming. I am hoping that by showing you my eulogy, it will give me some kind of solace.

To my Mom, my best friend, closest advisor, till we meet again.

Thank you all for coming and being with our family on this bittersweet occasion.

Aside from family, we usually see everybody during one of our social events where we celebrate milestones. Well, this is actually also one of them. We are celebrating the successful life of my wonderful Mom- how she lived it, how she led it.

If I were to describe Mom in 3 words, it would have to be beautiful,
thankful and prepared.

She is beautiful in all aspects of the word. Inside and out. Her
elegant demeanor, her style and grace was evident to all. When I was
younger, everyone would always comment on how much I looked like her
and of course the rebel that I was, I wanted to forge my own identity.
But now, as I've grown up, I've realized what a great
compliment it is. Her ageless skin- she was a Dove endorser 4 yrs
ago- to have her easy ever gracious smile, I can only aspire and wish
to be as flawless as she was.

Inside, she is a woman of great compassion and grace. I've not heard
her say one mean thing about anybody- it was always, "understand that
person's situation pls" Her thoughtfulness and devotion to God is
beyond human. Everybody might think that I am putting her on a
pedestal and that is really what I am doing for my mom is clearly an
exceptional woman.

Her thankfulness in everything she did gave us her family and her
friends so much inspiration. If you have received a basket of flowers
or fruit, or both from her, chances are she did the arranging herself.
She would always start our prayers with thank you, not pls give or pls
bless because she believed that if you start with thank you, it
means that you have already received God's grace. And you know what,
it is 100% true.

The last description, preparedness is an action that she has been
doing for us eversince. In our teenage years, when were ONLY
interested in partying and chasing boys or girls, she would make us
sit next to her after school so we can observe her interact with
customers. This prepared us to deal with clients who sooner than
later become friends. She taught us the business as she led it- with
integrity, truth and always service with a smile. So if you know our
family, you will know that it is easy to make us bola into giving you
a better price. Not so good in the profit margin area, but very good
in making lifelong friends.

So to my BEAUTIFUL mom, I THANK God that He made you are our Mother for you are the best mother for us. I THANK you Mom for
preparing us for our lives ahead. I THANK you Mom for being such a
great woman, wife, mother, friend, businesswoman, artist and
inspiration to many.

It is with great pride and honor to say that I am

MY Mother's daughter.

I am a Nokia Ambassador!

I am tickled pink that I was asked to be a Nokia Ambassador (that's what they call it). I have been an avid fan of Nokia since mobile phones came out. I have treasured each and every one of my phones till the next upgrade caught my fancy (then the old ones ALL got stolen , isn't that strange?) We were given the E72 series to test drive the push email capabilities and all I can say is it's fast and addicting. The 5 megapixels doesn't hurt as well. I'm still getting used to the QWERTY keyboard but all in all it's a phone I can recommend.

Thank you Nokia!
