  • I am truly blessed to be married to a wife who is capable of overcoming all of her challenges since it allows me to take a step back and watch her stand up on her own as an adult.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • I am so happy and grateful to be born into a Filipino family since it is one of the reasons I chose to move and retire in the Philippines.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • With all my heart I thank the Universe / Life / God / Reality / Allah for showing me miracles as substantial as turning water into wine. It is because of these miracles that I believe anything I ask for will be granted, as long as I am honest and selfless.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • To AJ, thank you for believing in God / Reality / Life enough to surrender everything you have and are in search of knowing and experiencing the truth. It is because of you and Dr. Marjoe that I experienced a chain of synchronicity that proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Universe is organized in a sentimental way.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • To Dr. Marjoe, thank you for singing metaphorical songs and for making sense to me, even when you didn't make sense to the nurses, attendants and other people. I understood you and I was never afraid of you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • To Harold, thank you for keeping in touch with me, even after I left the New Day Recovery Center. I don't know how far our friendship will go but the sky is the limit.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • To Delzy, thank you for overcoming the New Day Recovery Center and making it back to society here in the Philippines. I was scared and concerned for you but I believed you would be okay and make it out in one piece.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • To Limwell, the one who handcuffed me and encouraged another patient to put me in a headlock, thank you for being paranoid and fearful, your role allowed me to experience being an innocent victim, and even though it didn't look like it, I enjoyed playing that role.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • To all of the staff members at the New Day Recovery Center who understood me or tolerated me at least, thank you for being part of an experience I will never forget.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
