Cherished Thoughts ... Note of Gratitude

Dear Friends,

I would like to thank you for your overwhelming support. Thank you for voting for me for the Blogger's Choice Award at the Philippine Blog Awards 2008.

I did not win the Blogger's Choice Award but I feel like a winner because of wonderful friends like you. I will always remember your kind thoughts and words.

gladness, making everything in
its vicinity freshen into smiles."

  • "I met Rachel in person and my perception of her was correct except for one thing. I thought she's one petite lady. Oh but she's actually taller than I am. Meeting Rachel was no different from what I read on her blog - she's soft spoken, very warm, always with a smile on her face." - Lynn

I really love the little tidbits she shares every so often about her son Yohan and the pictures that she shares with her posts. She's one modern mom with just the right touch of traditional values inside, something which seems to be lost (or gone awry, lol) in this super internet-paced world we live in! :)" - Maiylah
  • "My blogging buddy Rachel is a nominee to the Philippine Blog Awards 2. And I am happy for her. It is a well-deserved nomination. I like reading her posts. The warmth of her personality shines through in her posts. And I always look forward to reading "Yohanism"." - Josiet
  • In Heart of Rachel, the blog, the reader can follow the everyday life of a modern
    Rachel, but one whose family is intact. This is the life that revolves around Yohan (Rachel's one and still only child) and her loving husband. I haven't seen Yohan but I am privy to his sweetness, pranks, and wisdom, prodigious for his age -- including what Rachel has called 'yohanisms.' I guess I am one of hundreds who have followed Yohan's growing up with much delight and anticipation, through the blog. It is for me like having a virtual grandson. :)" - Annamanila
