What is the Value of an Hour?

Posted: 23 Mar 2009 11:03 PM PDT

It was almost midnight on an idle Tuesday and the hospital hallways were unusually calm. I had just finished reading an old issue of Sports Illustrated from cover to cover. “Waiting sucks,” I thought to myself. “Why didn’t I bring a book?”

As I sat quietly with my eyes closed, I could vaguely hear the soft mumbles of a verbal plea going on in the hospital room beside me. “You’ve kept him waiting long enough! My grandson is here! Oh please, let him in.” More mumbling… “Please, please… nurse, bring him to me.”

A moment later the nurse stormed out of the room and looked startled to see me waiting in the hall. “Oh, you’re here!” he yelped. “I’m sorry. I’m a hospice nurse and I’ve only been watching over your grandmother for the last 24 hours. She insisted that you were coming to visit her last night too, so she had me scouring the hospital halls looking for you to no avail. When she told me you were coming again this evening, I assumed her dementia was getting the best of her.”

“Well, I…”

He interrupted me. “But I’m really glad you’re here. I think she’s been holding on just so she could say goodbye to you. It’s actually miraculous that she’s still able to speak, because her body is rapidly shutting down on her. The doctor gave her 24 hours to live about 24 hours ago.”

“Jeez, that’s…”

He interrupted again. “Sir, once more, I’m truly sorry. I had no idea you were out here waiting. Please follow me.”

I stood up and the nurse guided me into the room. “You’re grandson is here,” he announced from the doorway. The old woman’s eye’s lit up. “Oh grace… Oh joy!” She looked right at me and smiled with all the might she had left in her weak body. “I knew you’d come.”

I sat down at her bedside and placed my hand over hers, interlocking our fingers and squeezing ever so slightly in an attempt to show affection. She squeezed back and tried to speak again, but she was too exhausted. Instead, she stared directly into my eyes and held her smile for several minutes as we continued to hold hands. Finally, she closed her eyes and rested.

For nearly an hour I didn’t move. I sat there in silence as she maintained a soft grip on my hand. Then slowly, her grip loosened and her breathing slowed. For a moment I thought she was falling into a deeper sleep, but then her breathing stopped altogether.

I let go of her lifeless hand and used the emergency call button to summon the nurse. The nurse hustled in, covered the body with a white sheet, recorded a few notes on his clipboard, and then began to offer his condolences…

“I’m really sorry for your loss,” he said. “Have you made any funeral arrangements?”

“I don’t even know her name,” I replied.

“What do you mean?” he asked. “She’s your grandmother.”

“No, she’s not,” I assured him. “Prior to stepping foot in this room, I had never met her before in my life. I’m here at the hospital waiting for my roommate who needs a few stitches on his chin.”

He looked confused. “I don’t understand. If you don’t know her, then why didn’t you say so? And why did you sit beside her for the last hour?”

I smiled. “Well, I knew immediately that she wasn’t my grandmother. But when you informed me of her life expectancy, I also knew that her real grandson wasn’t going to make it in time. So curiosity got the best of me and I followed you into the room. Then when she saw me and smiled, I realized her vision was so bad that she actually thought I was her grandson. And knowing how desperate she was to see him, I decided to play the part and spend the hour with her.”

We Determine the Value of Every Hour
Our lives are measured by the value we provide to others. This value arises from the things we spend our time doing. And since time is quantified in hours, the value of our lives is equivalent to the sum of every hour we spend.

Opportunities to provide value are everywhere. Some of them are anticipated, while others blindside us at midnight on an idle Tuesday. Whether or not we choose acknowledge these opportunities is up to us.

How have you spent the last hour of your life?

~Kelly Clarkson performs My Life Would Suck Without You on American Idol. 3/11/09.

-i was singing this song for hours and hours in the kitchen (super super loud!)
while cooking, cleaning the fridge, and yes, baking too :)
and my son looks at me like 'what the heck is wrong with u mommy?' heheh.
and kelly was in Oprah this morning and she's just the coolest artist ever :)
i so love love her :)

My Life Would Suck Without You (lyrics)

Guess this means you're sorry
You're standing at my door
Guess this means you take back
All you said before
Like how much you wanted
Anyone but me
Said you'd never come back
But here you are again

Cuz we belong together now, yea
Forever united here somehow, yea
You got a piece of me
And honestly
My life (my life) would suck (would suck) without you

Maybe I was stupid
For telling you goodbye
Maybe I was wrong
For tryin' to pick a fight
I know that I've got issues
But you're pretty messed up too
Either way I found out I'm nothing without you


Being with you is so dysfunctional
I really shouldn't miss you,
But I can't let you go,
Oh yeah

{ music break}

Cuz we belong together now, yea yea
Forever united here somehow, yea
You got a piece of me
And honestly
My life (my life) would suck (would suck) without you

Cuz we belong (yeah) together now (together now), (yeah)
Forever united here somehow, yea
You got a piece of Me And honestly
My life (my life) would suck (would suck) without you

On eBay:

I am a buyer and seller, but most of the time buyer.
I had a fabulous 115 feedback, 100%. Positive.

Sa ilang taon ko na ebayer, isa lang yung item na di ko na-received.
And di naman ako apektado dahil 1.99 lang sya.
So deadma.

Diba sabi ko di ako bumibili ng jeans sa ebay or on-line , I bought a few before,
And it was great, fits me perfectly coz of detailed item description, so sabi
Hmm…ok naman pala.
Lately, may binili ako, sure it was a deal.

Pero hanggang ngayon di ko pa natatanggap yung jeans, mag 4 weeks na.
Twice ko pa lang sya na-email.

Naiinis ako sobra. Kasi ayoko. As in AYOKO, talaga mag-iwan ng negative
Feedback lalo na kung 100% yung feedback ng seller.


Geezz…am really good of “letting it go”, kaya lang naisip ko,
Fair bay yun? Let go ko na lang?
Eh di naman lahat ng tao tulad ko diba?
Yung iba…queberrrrrr talaga..

Pano kung dumating yung time na ako naman ang iiwanan nila
Ng negative feedback, sana naman may awa ang Diyos wag mangyari,
Dahil marunong naman ako maki-communicate.
Nabubuhay kasi ako sa karma,golden rule and things happens for a reason.

Alam nyo yun.—“ Matt 7:12 Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.

I will e-mail her/him for the last time.
We’ll see…..

Pero kung ako papipiliin, let go ko na lang talaga.


WANTED-- di ko masyadong feel ang sci-fi
this movie, ahh..weird. pero looking good si Angelina JOlie ha

PINEAPPLE EXPRESS---- nakatulog ako kasi late na,
then tinanong ko si jeff, kung maganda. stupid daw.
so di ko na pinanood.LOL
ELECTRIC MIST-- ok lang. good story naman sya.
but so not for me.not my type.

- kahit wala na akong netflix, meron pa naman kaming cable,
so may mga movie doon an gusto ko, then i just set the timer:

nitong huling linggo or buwan, i watched quite a few, i watch a movie
at least once or twice a week. adik tlaga ako sa movie.
pampa-relax ko na rin kasi. (akala mo naman kung sinong stress ano?heheh)

27 DRESSES-- so cute, i love it :) pang girlash na movie talaga. :)
my fave part eh yung lumabas sya from the club or yung party nga then sumigaw sya ng mother******!!!!hahah...i think that was awesome, kse minsan na-experience nating mga babae yun, na you are just about to explode,and needed to let it all out badly...and that's what she did :)

FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL- it was ok for me. pero nagagandahan ako dun
kay Mila kunis yata yun, yung pinalit nya kay sarah.

I COULD NEVER BE YOUR WOMAN- di ito pamilyar sa akin pero nakita ko si
michelle pfeiffer so okay naman sya. its funny!

ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS- hahah. its cute. i like it :)
gusto ko tuloy hulihin yung mga squirrel dito sa amin
at gawing pet. hahah..anh. no-way!

Movie Day (still going on Flor)

~ eto yung 2 huling movie ko for now
sa netflix, sa ngayon naka-hold
ang subscription ko dahil wala
akong budget eh. heheh.
I have chosen to spent the money with clothes,
actually jeans, dahil masyadong lumalaku ang bilbil,
at di na magkasya ang mga old jeans ko, what an excuse
to get a new clothes huh?
oh well...

ok, back to movies:

EAGLE EYE- ewan di ako fan nito, thriller nga pero,
basta, ayoko sya.

NIGHTS IN RODANTHE- maganda sana kaya lang malungkot :(

-gusto ko yung mga feeling-good movie.

Hamburger night :)

~ eto ang kay jeff (looks boring but it was good!)

5 Facts about me:


Ok, here’s the warning : I am not or not considering my self
as an interesting or intelligent (definitely not!)person,
but I do love my life so much.
And I am a very grateful person.
I thought about doing this thingie about “facts about me”,
Just because, I just want to do it.

It might be sound so pathetic, but you know,
I have fun reading my diaries and anything about my own life.

Because I simply appreciate ME. That’s all.

So I will start with 5 Facts about me:

1 I am super bad in grammar, spelling and words (obviously).
Please forgive me.
If there’s one thing that I appreciate so much is that,
If someone help me correct my grammar, I always ask my mom-in-law
about it. I NEVER felt offended, because I know I need help :(

2. In Motherhood: I really take time to learn the lyrics of the songs that
My baby loves to listen to, so I can sing it to him before he goes to bed.
(though am not a good singer at all, well, that’s what good about babies,
They always think you sing like one of those American idol finalist LOL)

3. I bake when am too happy.

4. I bake when I’m a little sad like when I miss my brother
And I don’t have the phone card to call him, or if I know
Its 2am in Pinas and I can’t bug him 

5. When someone left a comments in my blog,
I write their names in my diary, with note:
“Thank You God for this person…. and so on..(about his/her comment)
I am always a believer that “we met people for a reason”.
And luckily, I met really good, amazing people. (through internet or in person)
You guys know who you are. For sure.
Thank you guys…
And thank You God.
