The Self-prediction for 2012 versus what actually happened


At the onset of the year 2012 I created a self-prediction summary for the year in a monthly basis. Refer to http://jynzly.hubpages.com/hub/My_Self_Prediction_for_2012.

Reviewing these self-predictions, I found out that only one was closer to what actually happened. As far as my prediction for January 2012 is concerned, I actually had celebrated my birthday, (thanks to my kind and generous husband), but not with my wistful thinking of having my son and his children as my visitors but with my daughter and her husband and my long-time best friend.

Noticeable is that my son and his children, who I had not seen for four years and who my heart achingly longed to see on my birthday, were not present. Yet, a miracle happened that year, it was still a birthday celebration but in my granddaughter CyeCye's (my daughter's eldest daughter) 3rd birthday on April 22 that year; my son and his children attended in that celebration at Poracay Resort; and not only that...my three grandchildren spent a two-week vacation in my home the next month.

Although the rest of my self-predictions, where all of them pertain my new life living together with my husband in the U.S., did not materialize, which means that I am still here in the Philippines awaiting that great day; my husband and I still persist for the manifestation of such a cherished dream. Also my life here is not really "that" idle; one reason is it gives me enough time to write in Hubpages; then it gave me enough time to introspect and to test my strength when things fail according to our wishes...I had learned the value of patience and persistence. My husband had taught me a lot in our distance conversations every day. He had inculcated in me so many valuable lessons in life that he may even had not realized.

Today is the first day of the year 2013: the question is, will I create another self-prediction for 2013? My answer could be yes and no but in a different approach. In this approach, an invocation to the Divine Intervention is a necessity. Watch for my discussion on that in my next hub, or maybe in my own website.

Thank you so much for dropping by and for your comment. Yes, I always consider myself blessed especially in terms of my children and my husband. They are all loving and caring; their being busy and the distance never intervened with how much they love me and care for me; I love them as much too. My husband is the most wonderful gift God can ever bestow me in the later part of my life.

God Bless you.
