Little girls giggling uncontrollably.

A really good kiss.

Money in the bank and no bills pending.

A blue sky.

A great sunrise.

The ocean.

Hi Mom,
They are all so wonderful just like Julie Andrews favorite things. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Shiela,
I pray to the Lord that He grants you all of your wishes especially the last one- that you can live your life free of pain. I can sense in your words your passionate longing for the outside world where you can run and play and do the things that will really make you happy. But we live by what the Lord gives us however painful they may be. They serve God's purpose and gives glory to His name. One day we will be able to fully understand and comprehend the magnitude of our sacrifices in life. Until then, we delight in the pleasure of God's blissful presence in our lives. God bless you always my sister and friend. Thanks for your visit and inspired comments.

Hi sis Pia,
You are so secretive about what will make you happy. But I'm sure all of us have our own ideas of what will really make us happy. Thanks for your visit and cryptic comments. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Shiela,
I was also amazed by the comment of Pia. But I respect her silence about the issue. God bless you always.

I just re-read my post. I meant to put the sentence about you up one sentence, talking about how hard it is to find people you can talk about spiritual things with, and I was talking about how rare it is to find people like that and that you have brought many people who are spiritual into my life...but now that I think of it, the sentence about kindness and manners fits you too! Lol.
Hugs and blessings,
Sheila

Shawie said...

they say that happiness and sadness are never found separate... so the things that both make me happy and sad are my relationships with my family, my husband and my friends. Those are very important to me^-^ I'm happy when they're happy and sad when they're sad... life is so simple for me, you know... I can handle pains but I can't handle seeing my loved ones in pain...

chubskulit said...

The happiness and security of my family is what makes me happy.. When they're happy and safe, I am too!

john said...

When I see my wife and kids happy, it makes me feel so contented and fulfilled. Their love is what makes me happy!

Mom said...

I love that song. "These are a few of my favorite things..."

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Shiela,
You will always be a guardian angel to me. We benefit from each other and from our other Christian friends. That was meant by the Lord for His own glory. Thanks again for the inspired comments. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Shawie,
You have a heart of gold and you love your family with an unconditional love. God bless you more for it. Thanks for your visit and inspiring comments. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Rose,
You also have a heart of gold just like Shawie. I marvel at the depth of
your love for your family. We are very proud about Filipina wives like you two who have exemplified the very best of the Filipinas in your adopted countries. May your tribe increase. Thanks for your visit and inspiring comments. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi John,
I know you are a wonderful husband and father to your wife and kids. May your inspiring family relationship last a lifetime. Keep on loving your wife and kids. God will bless you more for that. Thanks for your visit and inspiring comments. God bless you always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Mom,
Yes, we all have our own favorite things and they make us happy in times of negative events in our lives. May you abound in all the things that will make you happy. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.
