ONE LAST SMILE...ONE LAST GLANCE...ONE LAST SWEET GOODBYE...

Another year is about to end…one last smile…one last glance…one last sweet goodbye….
As I watched everybody rushing for the after christmas sale suddenly I was caught staring at the four cornered clearance rack…I can’t help but smile…It must be odd for passers by to see me in this manner but I didn’t care…I’ve been staring at the same rack when I first came to Olney with my friend Minnie…She was teaching me where to find affordable yet adorable stuff for our new apartment…It was fun hanging out with her…For the very first time I enjoyed going out with a friend…She was the kind of person that I enjoyed talking over the phone for hours when my depression was at its peak…A call from her and I’d stop crying…A cheerful , ” let’s go out and drink coffee at Ophelia’s cup, ” had always been music to my ears….hahaha…I must admit in a place like this I agree 100% that no man is an island….hehehe…I miss those girly outings…I miss those funny talks that we used to have…I miss those mellow and heart to heart talks….Now she has 2 kids…our calls became less frequent…our hang-outs became from every week days to every once in a “blue moon”…


I guess that’s what you call growing up…Now I’m beginning to realize that we’re no longer girls but we’re both grown-ups…Now I understand that to grow wiser you have to widen your horizon…

2007 had been a very fascinating year for me…I’ve been through a lot of ups and downs…I’ve met a lot of new friends…I’ve learned not to let go of my old but I’ve learned to love them more and keep them in ” my safe place”…I’ve learned to face my greatest downfalls…I’ve learned to let my guards down…I’ve learned to share some of my tears…I’ve generously imparted a lot of laughters…I’ve given away a lot of smiles…I’ve had my shares of hugS...

I’ve had zillions of things to smile about when talking about 2007…. I have a thousand of stories to share when trying to reminisce about this blessed year….and I must say some of these beautiful memories will make me shed some tear…some will make me bursts out of laughter….some will make me sad for awhile…and some will simply make me smile like I never did before… Goodbye 2007…thank you for the wonderful memories… As I gently close the door…I just know that this coming year will bring another chapter to my life…I may have smiled, laughed and cried for the previous years but I’m sure that I’d still have a lot of reasons to smile, laugh and cry for the year 2008… Somehow I’m excited to see what the other door has to offer…but till then I’m holding my breath and closing my eyes….and with my wide opened arms when the clock stikes 12 on January first I’d say loud and clear, “WELCOME 2008!!!”
