2011 Rewind: A Year in Photo

It is good to look back at the events that mattered to me in 2011.

Most events in 2011 brought happiness to me and my family, especially as we traveled to different places and enjoyed family bonding.  We received many blessings, both personal and professional.

World felt nature's fury from March until the end of 2011.  It started with the earthquake in NZ followed by the tsunami in Japan. Philippines was not spared as Ondoy and Sendong caught most of us by surprise. People were kept busy helping those that were affected by the calamities. More people donated to charity and shared their blessings to the needy.

I received a personal blow with the sudden and untimely death of my eldest sister.  I know that time will heal the wounds left by her demise although it might take time.

Our family finished a successful advent journey. The lessons brought our family closer to each other and closer to God.

Information technology kept moving in a very fast pace. Social networking reached new heights with Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and blogging sites getting most of the share.  Likewise, smartphones and PDAs were launched version after another version with Apple and Samsung leading the pack.

2011 has been a fantastic year and I will bid it adieu with a thankful heart. I am  looking forward to 2012 with fresh hope and a fervent prayer that God will continue to bless me and my family.

Here's to happiness, good times, good cheer and many joys untold.  Cheers!
