When Words Devastate

What I had hoped to be a conversation filled with laughter and juicy tidbits about her hunky next door neighbor turned into a therapy session of sorts. I got a phone call from a friend I haven’t seen in a long time, and instead of her usual jolly self, she was up in arms, and almost ready to punch someone in the nose out of sheer fury. I patiently listened as she ranted on about how her officemate makes snide remarks about her behind her back.

Things like these are inevitable, I guess. It’s how we take it. Of course, we are but human to be affected, but we should try our best not to let these things ruin our day. There are people who will always be envious of us, and of our achievements, whether big or small. Sometimes it works to just laugh things off.

But of course, we should discern whether the negative things other people say about us are starting to ruin our reputation. When that happens, it is time to take action.

Mom bloggers Kaye and Pehpot launch this year’s biggest online contest

By Yami

Two amazing work-at-home mommies yesterday launched the biggest blog contest online to mark their simultaneous blog anniversary celebration this year.

Dubbed as the Biggest Contest in the Blogniverse, Pehpot of Make or Break and Kaye of Random WAHM Thoughts, said cool cash and popularity await the lucky winners.

A total of $500 in cash and hundreds of back links will be given away during the month-long contest.

Bloggers extraordinaire, Pehpot and Kaye come up with the contest to give thanks to hundreds of people mostly maintaining a website or two, for following their respective sites and blogging careers in the past year(s).

Pehpot is not the typical stay at home mommy who keeps her household neat and tidy, but a confessed-OCD and multi-tasker who maintains not one but 8 live blogs updated on a regular basis. Her blogs stimulate her creative juices she said.

Kaye is a born writer. She also maintains a high profile blogging career and still has more productive time to attend to the needs of her family.

Both have organized this exciting online contest where participants are sure to gain the cash prize at stake and back links from other participants who will join and review the sponsors’ sites.

They urge everyone to check out the links to join the biggest contest this year which will run from January 18 to February 28.

Greeting cards from friends

I received two Greeting cards the other day. One card came from Mommy Clarissa of Kizuna and the other one from Mommy Rose of Rose’s Obstacles and Glories. My SIL handed the cards to me while I’m busy preparing our lunch. It’s been a while since I last received greeting cards from friends. I’m so touched by your gesture and your well-wish for my family. 🙂

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. God bless both of you and your respective families.

I would like to reiterate my appreciation to  Marce Pehpot and Marce Kaye for the redesign of my site Pen, paper, pan; For Ms. Carlota for the new layout of this site; and for another mommy who requested anonymity, for the gift that she gave me. Thanks to you all!
