para sayo kaibigan...

salamat...
.....sa mga dasal na inalay mo para sa kagalingan ng aking ina at ni baby kyla
.....sa mga salitang nagbigay ng lakas at nagkabit ng ngiti sa aking mukha
.....sa mga oras na inukol upang ipadama na ako'y hindi nag-iisa
.....sa mga paalalang ang Diyos ay nakikinig at tunay na Dakila!

salamat...
.....dahil kahit mahabang panahon na ang nakaraan
.....kahit milya milya ang layo ng ating kinaroroon
.....ang pagiging magkaibigan ay hindi kinalimutan
.....bagkus ay higit pa itong pinagyayaman

maraming salamat kaibigan, tunay kang maasahan!
kung nangangailangan ng tulong, ako'y iyo ding malalapitan
ako'y nagdarasal na ika'y laging patnubayan
at sa tamang panahon, makita ang tunay na minamahal :)

listening

i thought i'm a good listener until i read this post from CV Discussion Board.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Why we don't hear others
If you want to listen so you really hear what others say, make sure you're not a:
Mind reader. You'll hear little or nothing as you think "What is this person really thinking or feeling?"
Rehearser. Your mental tryouts for "Here's what I'll say next" tune out the speaker.
Filterer. Some call this selective listening—hearing only what you want to hear.
Dreamer. Drifting off during a face-to-face conversation can lead to an embarrassing "What did you say?" or "Could you repeat that?"
Identifier. If you refer everything you hear to your experience, you probably didn't really hear what was said.
Comparer. When you get sidetracked assessing the messenger, you're sure to miss the message.
Derailer. Changing the subject too quickly tells others you're not interested in anything they have to say.
Sparrer. You hear what's said but quickly belittle it or discount it. That puts you in the same class as the derailer.
Placater. Agreeing with everything you hear just to be nice or to avoid conflict does not mean you're a good listener.

Indeed listening is an art!
- requires human effort to master
- needs high quality of execution
- a non-scientific branch of learning
- a skill arising from the exercise of intuitive faculties
