My Self-Prediction for 2012
Life is Magic
It's 5:33 p.m. of December 31, 2011 here in San Fernando, Pampanga, Philippines. Alone in my bedroom; my daughter and her husband with their two babies, girl 2 years and 8 months old, and the baby boy, 5 months young, along with the nanny Joy; together, they left this morning to celebrate the New Year 2012 tonight in Angles City, in the house of her mother-in-law.
Not that they did not insist to take me with them, but I have a very good reason to choose to stay; I am expecting my husband Greg, who is in the other end of the world, to celebrate the New Year with me on-line at 12:00 midnight, tonight.
I know that the whole situation is so frustrating both for me and Greg because we both expected to have spent Christmas 2011 and New Year 2012 together; but only God's intervention could have made it possible, governments and bureaucracy prevail in our case.
Any way, what can I do but to tell myself that perhaps there is a higher purpose for this prolonged waiting period and the disappointments. I can only appreciate my life, that I am still healthy and alive, plus; I can dream, can't I? It's free!
While everybody is serious writing about their goals and how they are going to achieve them realistically, mine here is also "real" but that can only exist in my own head.
Everything here is a fantasy, naturally everything would be disgustingly impossible, no, an illusion and delusion that can only happen in "Never Land", if this place even exists.
Humour me; Self-Prediction 2012 of Jenny, a monthly forecast;
Birth January; My family, son, Rey Lamurin, 35, CEO and Sole Owner of Pixelwise, an IT and Systems Analyst Group, Makati, Philippines; and granddaughter, Rhenzl, 16 and freshman College taking Architecture in Far Eastern University, Manila; twins grandson Rhon Caezar and granddaughter Rhae Cezille, 11 years old with my daughter and her young family come to celebrate with me my 57th birthday on January 10, 2012, in Fortune Restaurant, Angeles City. This is the highlight for this month.
