Precious Moments… Philippines
“If it is good for your soul, do it.”
I’ve been amazed by these cute angels with tear-drop huge eyes, clothed in pastel hues ever since I was a child, and just recently I discovered that the artist behind was here in the Philippines. It was a happy and precious moment of discovery…looking forward to meet Mr. Sam Butcher..(–,)
Learning that “Precious Moment” is actually here in my native land, I did not wait long to witness it in my on eyes. I immediately asked hon then to visit the place right away.
We had our dinner first. With great anticipation of unanticipated delights waiting for us at the 2nd floor where the showroom is. I must say, the people were a reflection of Mr. Butcher. The kindness and all the goodness of his heart mirrored by his people. He must be so happy and proud.
Full of excitement, I can’t wait anymore to see what’s up there.
We were surprised by a menagerie of all the collection they created through the years. They’ve been in the business for the past 35 years. Mr. Sam is more than 70 years old already just like my late dad.
He passionately believed in the joy of inspiring others. He was very humble, tagged to be one of the most beloved artists in America, his humility is all over. I was informed that regularly he visits the shop to mingle with customers and personally sign the items being bought by his followers.
At the time of our visit, he was scheduled to visit the week after, it’s just that I have work then though I’m still hoping I’ll have the chance to be seeing him. He is based in Kalibo, Aklan and I was thinking it’s just great If I am to meet him there. Soon.
I must say it’s heroic and angelic to be someone like Sam to make an impact to this world, inspiring people through his own inspiration. The park and the chapel were a manifestation of how great love he have for God and His children. I am so blessed to be inspired by him too.
