Personalized gifts for the family

In few days time, the whole world will be celebrating Christmas day. The much awaited holidays of the year because this is the season of giving, loving and sharing. I myself, love this holiday because this is the holiday where the whole family is complete. One common gestures during this season is the giving of gifts to the family, friends, relatives and special someone. The department stores are getting crowded buying gifts, groceries and many others. I am one of those shoppers who are looking for something to give to the family. I am done window shopping but have not decided yet on what to buy.

Buying gifts are very difficult especially if we do not have any idea of what to buy. I am thinking to give the whole family a very unique gifts. Something that they would love and will always remember me when they see and used it. I guess it is best to give them personalized and engraved gifts for each member of the family. Giving them the things that they love with their name on it is so perfect to make them smile. I am pretty sure it will bring smiles to their faces when they received such gifts. Now that I have an idea of what to buy, I can now shop to get things done to get it ready for Christmas day. Merry Christmas everyone!

More important thing

It was twice in the row that the buying of car for the family was not push through. First incident was when the buyer decided not to sell his car for family issues. Second, was when we minutes late. It was sold to other buyer who got interested of the said car. The family is sad but we have accepted that it is not meant for us to have. I am really puzzled why when we are about to buy the car there is something happens that prevent us from buying the car. To be honest, I even asked God why those things happen. I know that it is not appropriate to ask God but out of curiosity I asked Him and I am so sorry for what I did.

Two months later, God answer was revealed. The family encountered a very serious matter. My brother was rushed to the hospital because he has difficulties in breathing. He was confined in the hospital for four days. And because of his serious condition, the money that is allotted was being used. The family is sad however, we thought that life is more important above all. We can earn the money back, but when life is gone we cannot bring it back to life. I know now the reason and I thank for He is always in the middle to prevent us from buying car because the brother will need the money most.

The Christmas Tree is Up

It’s been weeks now that the kids are bothering me where am going to put up the Christmas tree. I always tell them that I will not put the Christmas tree this year because I do not have time to do it. Because they wanted to see the Christmas tree, they offered to help me in doing it. I just smiled after hearing that they wanted to help me because in every thing that I do, they never help me in doing it right. They just add some more mess to clean up. I am thinking of putting up the Christmas tree however, my hands are too busy with my ten months old nephew. I did have plans to put the Christmas tree this week.

After having our lunch today and the kids are taking their nap. I get the old Christmas tree and the Christmas decorations in the box. The house is so quiet, meaning no one will be disturbing me in putting up the Christmas tree. In less than one hour, the Christmas tree is now up and I have already put few decorations. Some of the decorations are broken because I have been using it for years already. I was resting when the kids woke up from their afternoon nap the nieces arrived from school. They are surprised to see the Christmas tree in the living room. They smiled and told me, “you lied; you said you will not put the Christmas tree up?’ Smart kid eh? I just smiled at them.

Falls Alarmed

A family friend came here in the house three days ago. He told my father about the car he saw that is for sale. It is in good condition, and the prize is so perfect for the budget. We need to have a car for the family to start on their own business that is why we keep on looking for the good car to buy. After hearing the good news from a friend, the family discuss about the car decided to look at it the following day. The brother went to see the car personally and have it check before the final decision. The family comes up with the same decision to buy the said car.

I am praying that this time we are able to buy the car of our dreams. But same as before, it was a falls alarmed because the owner changes his mind. It is too bad that we are always in this kind of situation. Indeed, our patience is being tested. I am glad that the family has lots of patience in our hearts. J I hope that soon the family will have the car soon for the business to run. Crossing our fringer again, hoping that we will have the car that we wanted to buy for the business to run soon. And I pray the no more falls alarmed to be heard.lol

Not meant to be

For the second time around, we failed to have the car that we wanted to buy for the family. The first one was the owner changed his mind not to sale his car. And the latest news, the car was already sold.grrr! This is twice in a row that the excitement of the family turned into disappointment. We really wanted to buy the car to start our own business but the car is avoiding us.

Today is the schedule of my BIL and my father to talk to the owner regarding the for sale car. But same as the first one, we did not get the car because it is already sold. My father went home with the sad face again because we missed it. The car was sold four days ago. It is so unfortunate for the family. There is nothing else that we can do but to accept that it is not meant to be. Our patience are being tested I must say because of what had happened. But we will never give up and will continue looking for a car because we cannot start the business without a car. I pray that we will get a car before this year ends so that early next year we can start the business.
