One of the things I am grateful for about my job is the opportunity to work with different people and be part of different teams. I love that the movement would always celebrate what is achieved collectively than what is done by an individual.
In his exhortation at the 14th Commencement Exercises of the School of Campus Ministry, Bishop Juray Mora had three points: (1) We always get better together, (2) We can only do amazing things together, and (3) We can only be a fortress of strength together.
I love how serving in and with a team allows us to do more. But more than that, I love how working with different people teaches us to look beyond ourselves and set aside personal preferences because the goal is not to advance someone’s agenda but for the team to achieve goal and finish strong together.
Today, I am grateful for the teams I’m a part of and those that I got to work with and for this year. Here’s a quick photo rundown:
We are definitely better together!

About 30 Days of Gratitude
I decided to breathe life into this blog some more by counting down to a special day exactly a month from now while counting the things I am thankful for in a day. I realized I’ve always found it hard to blog because I’ve been writing mostly musings and reflections, my tendency to debate and negate my own thoughts would usually make me decide against publishing posts (don’t ask how many drafts I have now). I figured day-in-a-life type of posts would probably help me get back to the discipline of writing even if a post would contain more pictures than words.
