“It is not how much you have that matters, but how much you enjoy that makes happiness.”
Have a great day, everyone! (*wink*)
What do you think about this interesting short film?
“Facebook can be depressing because everyone else’s lives are better than yours… But are they really?”
Can you relate to the short film? It seems so real to me.
This is by far my most favorite book among the Selection Series (The Selection and The Elite). I love, love this book.
THE SELECTION changed the lives of thirty-five girls forever. Now, only one will claim Prince Maxon’s heart…
It’s swoon meets the Hunger Games in the final instalment of THE SELECTION trilogy!
For the four girls who remain at the palace, the friendships they’ve formed, rivalries they’ve struggled with and dangers they’ve faced have bound them to each other for the rest of their lives.
Now, the time has come for one winner to be chosen.
America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown – or to Prince Maxon’s heart. But as the competition approaches its end and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realises just how much she stands to lose – and how hard she’ll have to fight for the future she wants.
The breathtaking finale to THE SELECTION trilogy will make you swoon!
I think I wrote about not liking the personality of America in the second book. But she actually changed (for the better) on this 3rd book. I love how it ended (will not post spoilers) and I would love to read it again soon. ♥
I’m so excited for this. Watch the trailer of the upcoming movie – Mockingjay.
I can’t, can’t wait!
“Forgiveness is loving yourself enough to move on…”
This is so true. Before I don’t really understand this one. How can you forgive a person who wronged you? How can you forgive a person who totally ignores you? But the moment you forget about that person and start forgiving, you will feel that the burden will be released from your load. It is very refreshing. I promise.
Hey check this out, something that made me think about how I see social networking media sites.
“Edit and exagerate. WE don’t even know someone is listening.”
Sad but true. Start looking up from your phone today.
I’m sure all mothers can relate to this one story…
The Sorrowing Mother
Roberto Shiniashiky tells of a Jewish mother who tried to bring her son up in the most traditional way possible. The boy, however, had a forceful personality and would only do what his heart told him to do. The mother, just like Rabbi Abraham in the preceding story, went straight to Paradise when she died, for she had been a shining example of devotion here on Earth. When she got there, she told the other mothers about the agonies her son had put her through, and she learned that not one of them was satisfied with the paths their children had followed.
After days of conversation, during which they voiced their regrets that they had not been strong enough to control their children, the group of women saw Our Lady passing by.
‘Now she managed to bring her son up properly,’ said one of the mothers.
And they all crowded round Our Lady, praising her son Jesus’s career.
‘He was a wise man,’ they said. ‘He accomplished all that he was destined to accomplish, he walked the path of truth, never deviating for one moment, and he is still a source of pride to his family.’
‘Yes, you’re quite right,’ said Our Lady, ‘but to be perfectly honest, I wanted him to be a doctor.’
Amazing how mothers wanted the BEST of their children’s lives. Mothers. ♥

The husband’s birthday is just a few days from now and I’m thinking of what to give him. I was browsing online on my usual “prospects of gifts” like perfume, office slacks, poloshirt or even underwear, but when I came across www.Carid.com, I got too excited because I think I found the gift for him – konig wheels.
Hubby is into cars and car accessories so this KONIG® – CANDY Red with Machined Lip is quite a deal. Not to mention it’s red too!
CANDY Red with Machined Lip 1-Piece Cast Wheel by Konig®. These wheels come with heritage and pedigree, not just history. Konig has produced a long range of legendary light alloy custom wheels. The tradition rolls on with the Oldschool series wheels.
The price starts at: $115.80 (each) up to $463.20 (set of 4). I think it’s a very good deal considering the good quality that it entails. We are also upgrading the car now that we’ve been using it for 5 years. I think it’s about time to change the wheels too.
What do you think?
