Welcome Back to World Pulse

Posted February 13, 2019 from Philippines
With my first grand daughter Angelee on Valentine's Day. (1/1)

Today, I welcome myself to World Pulse, my home, my world community. Call me OA (overacting) but my heart is full knowing that I am going to swim again in the sea of energetic passionate and smart women from all over. I have been away my sisters because I couldn't log on to my old account. We didn't have a proper internet connection after Super Typhoon Haiyan which struck us in 2013. 

I tried to register again but couldn't find myself to be active because I was attached to the old me, my old account. I drew my inspiration and courage for writing from sisters who care to respond, who offers suggestion for a better write-up, who encourages me to write more, who prods me to share my story. That's what we do. We lift each other up. I didn't have you in the last five (5) years.  And a lot has happened. I've taken a new role. A grandmother of two (2) girls.

Looking forward to reconnect with you in the next story.

Hi Karen,
It's a Valentine's gift. I got back my account last night and the internet at the office was installed today. I have every reason to be grateful on Valentine's Day. See you on Saturday.

Dear Paulina,
Welcome back at home our dear! WP is our home! We are waiting a lot from you and you from us. What about Super Typhon Haiyan? I do not underestand what happened.
With love

Dear Seka,
Thanks for the warm welcome. Typhoon Haiyan was the strongest typhoon that hit the planet in November of 2013 which made its landfall in our towns and city that caused huge losses in life and property. That prompted the United Nations to embark on a Category 3 humanitarian response that required all its agencies to provide assistance. We have recovered now. You may want to check this video...

Thanks Ate Paulina, I underestand what means Typhoon Haiyan. It was horrible. I thank God for keeping you alive and for recovering now. I believe God has a good plan for you. I want to check the video.
Be blessed

You are always welcome. The experience taught us how to develop community-based disaster risk reduction management plans. Yes, we are thankful that the family is intact and given the chance to be of service according to God's plan.

Sister, Sister!
I can relate to your situation. Am never here as often as I would wish to.
Hoping to realize a balance between my work, home and health life, to partake of this wonderful forum.
Grannyhood befits you. You are glowing.
Enjoy.

Huggs sister Phiona. Love the name and the person as always. I pray for your good health. You'll achieve that balance when you feel like. Btw, I remember that you mentioned something about a group that provides assistance to women's groups and training to women leaders. I should have jotted it down. Can you still remember that?

Dear Arrey -Echi,
Thanks for the warm welcome. Hope this message finds you well. It's my first time to hear about sickle cell anemia. I admire your leadership in the campaign to remove the stigma on those affected by the SC condition. My curiosity led me to that chart on who can get SC. Since the illustration shows females, does it mean that only girls will get SC when both parents have the condition? And boys will not be affected?

Dear Ate Paulina,
Thank you very much I am doing great and hope you too; and thank you for taking your time to go through my campaign.
No, sickle cell is not gender specific. Everyone one can have it. By everyone I mean children born to parents who are carriers of the defective "S" gene both stand at risk of having it be they male or female. I think the chat was just for illustrative purposes.
Hugs.
