I am relatively new at blogging. I don’t really know what to get out of it. Maybe it’s just self-fulfillment. You know, it’s that thing where you are able to do something worthwhile in your life, however petty it may be. And then it grows on you.

I don’t expect anyone to read and be interested in what I write about. Although somewhere in the deep recesses of my mind, I have the yearning that someday, my writings will be of interest to a few who may share the same passion I have for writing on any topic just for the heck of it.

I intend to keep writing just to keep my brain working. When your brain is working, properly, that is, you get to live longer and have the chance to offer your services to anyone who may be minded enough to ask you for help or favor.

My mother who is applying for a juicy position in a trial court asked me to compose an application letter for her. I have been sick for quite a while. I really didn’t have the inclination to write anything while I was sick. However, being sick has its rewards. Sort of. When you are sick, you get the rare opportunity to reassess your life in a way that you don’t normally do when you are as healthy as a horse.

Today, I decided to compose my mother’s application letter. It’s long overdue. It’s been two weeks since she last asked me to. I hope and pray that she lands the job. If she doesn’t get the job, oh well, at least she tried aiming for the moon. I will support my mother in any endeavor that she thinks is worth her time. When she gets something out of any endeavor that she lays her eyes on, definitely, our yuletide celebration will be a blast. And she and the rest of the family may celebrate Christmas with me in Manila or in Baguio. Come to think of it, aiming for the moon is not such a bad idea after all. At least you have something to live for.

For now, I will end this article so that I will have sufficient time to do my mother a big favor. A big favor since all her life, she has been working to put food on the table and to see my son through his elementary education.

I owe my mother my life, as any child owes everything to the one who gave him a chance to make a big difference in the world.

I love my mother so much. All my life I have been a pain in the neck. Today, I intend to reform and try to aim for the moon. But I will live one day at a time. No rush.
