Will do it next time…

This is my famous line every time my plan is spoil by unexpected expenses in the house. I am sad but that is me, I always put myself on the last of my list. My conscience will haunt me knowing that my family needs it the most. I am supposed to go to the parlor to have my hair fixed but did not able to do it because some things happened. I am sad but there is nothing I could do but I have to set aside again myself.

The money that is tending for my hair went to the unexpected expenses occurred. I am sad because my plan was spoil but happy at the same time because that money saved my family’s expenses. Better luck next time and I hope I will be able to save soon to pamper my hair.:-)

Unexpected Expenses

I planned to treat myself this weekend, to have some time for myself and to unwind from tiring job at home. All was fixed until unexpected expenses knocking on our door. I felt sad and guilty because that expense is very important. I cannot go out and spend when I know in my heart my family needed financial help. How can I go now and unwind? It is really hard and I am torn, really torn right now. I am still thinking of going to mall tomorrow or just give the money for my family to who badly needed it.

I do not understand why this thing happened every time I plan to go out and unwind. My family expenses always interfere when I do plan to pamper myself. I have accepted it that this is part of my life, to help my family as much as I could. I pray to God that He will give me more strength and energy always.

Blaming it to the child

A child is always a blessing to the family. It is a gift from God to the couple to complete the family. There is lots of sacrifice especially the mother who carried the baby inside her womb for nine months. To give birth is never easy because the life of the mother is at stake. But because of the kind of love that the mother has, he takes the pain and gives all her best to give birth.

Just recently, my sister shared to me about the story of her student. She was raised up by her grandmother because her mother died after giving birth and her father got angry of her. Her father is blaming her for the death of her mother because her mother died on the day she was born. Poor little child I must say. Good thing is she has her grandmother who gives the love and support she needed. Makes me think, God never leaves us empty handed. If someone leaves us, He always gives us someone who will comfort and love us.

40.6 Fever

If there is one thing that I do not want to happen to my nieces and nephew is to get sick. I have three kids to attend to and it would be very hard for me if any one of them get sick. I was doing my laundry when my father is calling my attention that my six years old niece has a fever. I stopped my laundry for a while gets medicine for my niece to take. I feel relieve when she feels a little better after taking the medicine.

My niece is sleeping when I checked her temperature. I was shocked because her temperature reaches to 40.6. Too high and she is shaking. I immediately put cool patch on her forehead, have her take paracetamol and get ice bag for her heat to cool down. I am checking her temperature from time to time to know if there is any improvement. It is very stressful day for me today. I pray that my niece will get better after the medication and her temperature will go down and back to normal.

Blessed with my Family

Last week my hand is burned from cooking.  It is badly burned that cause me having fever because it is swelling.  It is so painful that it is so difficult to move my hand.  It is too hard doing things with one hand only.  If I could turn back time I should take extra careful while cooking.  Since the damage is already done, all I can say is ‘what if’. 

I cannot do my laundry and cannot help them doing household chores.  I appreciate what my family did to me.  They bought me some medicine for my burned hand, do household chores for me and even doing my own laundry.  Truly our family will always be there for us.  We can always count on them when we are in need and needed a shoulder to lean on.  I am so thankful to God for giving me such a wonderful family.  I am so blessed to have them beside me.  Though we have misunderstanding sometimes, still they are here for me.  And those misunderstandings makes the family relationship stronger.
