My Family, My LIFE


Just like any other family, mine have survived the ups and downs in life.  We continue the struggle... Together we can surpass any hurdle,  Together we can fight the odds.

MY FAMILY... MY LIFE

Taken sometime in August of 2005, a truly memorable photograph of a family that is bonded by love, respect and dignity. We may not have the luxuries of life but we always possess the blessing of having each other through good or bad times... in moments of sadness or joyful success... in weakness or strength... through heartaches and blissful unions... We treasure every moment like this:

Taken two years back.  It was our Christmas Party 2010 and our family got the blue color theme so here we are...
the BLUE BABIES

Closely knit... that's what we are
"KAPIT-BISIG"
whatever
whenever
wherever

Always hold each other so tightly
no matter what
no matter when
no matter where

Through rain or shine... we share
any thing
any time
any place

When one of us is in pain, 
everybody feels for the hurting... 
When one of us tastes victory, 
everybody jumps for triumph... 
When one of us is in need, 
everybody has a helping hand...
and if one of us is lost... 
everybody cares to lead the way.

  4. You have nice family there. We also have our themed family photo every Christmas and New Year. I guess the family that has been through a lot together becomes stronger.

    1. We're in yellow last Christmas Party. Every year, we elect our president and hold meetings during weekends or after office hours. Our FB group page keeps every member updated with the minutes of the meetings.

      Family is our strength... it is our HOME.

    1. If only every family in the country do practice eating together over meals... this will definitely open a room for communication. This is one factor to be a strong family.
