Happiness & Sunshine & Butterflies :-)

I just got a new promotion! My 3rd promotion in 2 years and a half in this company, and damn, it feels better and better each time! :)

Hard work is so rewarding and satisfying. But what's more satisfying is having your prayers listened to despite being a worthless human being that sins over and over again, having my prayers answered, and receiving blessings I do not even remotely deserve. And I have never asked God for a promotion. Especially this time, I haven't been asking for anything much at all. Just forgiveness.

There's nothing much in this pitiful life that's worth giving to God. But this one is for God. Whatever good is in this, whatever's worth giving, if there's any nobility and a shred of beauty in this, I want God to have it all. There's nothing else me, a sinner, can give.

[Called mom and told her, "Again??" she said. She then handed the phone to my aunt who was with her, who said "Again??" :-). "I'm beginning to suspect that it is really easy to get promotions in that company you work for" she said. That's about the only downside of it getting regular rewards, you work your ass off but after a while, it ceases to impress people unless you work yourself to death!

When they asked me what my new designation is, and I told them, my mom was like "Sartezi??" (Strategist). My aunt just said "Bawihte, a va khirh thei ve awww!" Yet all this endears them to me so much more!]

Oi! The first guy to comment on this post is not me.

Tho a lo ve. And hell, we spoke on the phone and you couldn't even tell me about this promotion of yours! Damn gurl. Anyway, here is a big congratulations from me!

And what do you mean no smartass quips? You mean, now that you are a strategist, what is the best strategy to get inside your... ? Nah, I don't make such kind of remarks, sorry.

But still, I am so happy for you dear! Muaaaah.

Kim - Now that is the Kima I know. I was beginning to fear you were losing your touch. I suspected it was not you later, and I was right! I think I hadn't heard of it when we were on the phone, and thanks :-)

To the other, nicer Kima - I apologise for mistaking you for the badder Kima. And thank you sincerely!~

Hey, just run across your blog and came to know about the so called "Again." Congrats! But i have a doubt if this would make any difference in terms of poverty :P
