Congratulations and best wishes

Last Sunday, I was invited to the wedding of my friend. I am happy because I will get to see her and our other friends. It has been four months since the last time we see each other. Though we communicate each other regularly through social media or sending the message on phone. But still, it is best to see each other, talking and laughing. When we are together we laugh a lot. The thing that I missed a lot. It was an abrupt invitation, luckily, we are all free on that day. We do not want to miss this once in a lifetime moment of our friend.

The reception is at the house of the newlyweds. It was a simple celebration, the typical celebration in the province and it is nice. Indeed, simple wedding is very comfortable it is like you are in your home. And memorable because of the guests and visitors who came to celebrate with the couple. It was an abrupt wedding and time is limited but in all fairness, it went well. After the wedding, they will proceed with their application for Japan. That is why they plan the wedding in a short time. Hopefully, their plans will fall into places and their plans to go and work in Japan will come true soon. Again, congratulations and best wishes to my friend and her husband.

The teething problems

Teething happens between 6 – 24 months old baby. It is the time when the infant’s teeth erupt the gum. There are several signs and symptoms when the baby is started teething. Some may call it the teething problem because the baby started to feel uncomfortable, irritable, have fever, cough, diarrhea and the likes. It is indeed a problem because some babies always cry and want to be carried always. That is what I have experienced from my nephews and nieces. It was the difficult stage of the baby and me. I include myself because I get so tired taking care of the baby during teething for I have to deal with the teething problems.

As of the moment, my eight (8) months old niece is started teething. She feels the discomfort, has the fever and wants to be carried all the time. One tooth is already showing and the other one is started to come out. Her gums are swollen that makes her feel uncomfortable. Carrying the niece the whole day is making me so tired. If they have a nanny I do not have to do it all alone. Anyways, I hope that the niece will be free from this teething problems. And I beg the teeth to just come out and do not give the niece a hard time. Please be a friend to her.

Happy 4th wedding anniversary

For years ago, my brother and his wife tied the knot. It was one memorable moment for them because his wife was also pregnant when they got married. They are so blessed I must say. Just like other married couple, they have encountered trials too. They were separated for months after a year of being married. My brother was so frustrated that time. He went back to us with their son because her wife left the house one day. However, their love for each other prevails and they were reunited again. Forgiveness has been given and decided to move on, forget the past and focus on the present and the future.

Now, they are on their 4th wedding anniversary. The scars from the past is healing and they are now living happily together with their son. I can see that they live peacefully. God and the love for each other is the center of their life and family now. We seldom see each other though because they live far from us, but the communication is still there. They sometimes visited us having our quick and simple family bonding.

Anyways, on their 4th wedding anniversary I wish them happy life and more blessings to come. I hope that they will continue love each other and always put God always in their house. God bless always and happy wedding anniversary to both of you Bong and Mary.

The kids are having fun

Okay, we are on vacation at the province of m parents. The tiring travel was so worth it because we arrived safely and the kids (my nephews) are having fun meeting their cousins and meeting new friends here. It is not their first time to travel here but it is their first time meeting them. They played a lot and do bonding a lot. The are having fun I must say. In fact the 5 years old nephew does not want to go back home anymore. LOL! They already went to the white sand beach here and the do want want to get out of the water too. Funny thing is that the 5 years old nephew says, the beach is like a swimming pool. Maybe because it is white sand and the color of the water is blue.

Their summer is spending really well. We have four more days left here in the province. We plan to go to the beach more after our agenda of going here is settled. I haven’t been to the beach yet. We visited some of our relatives already and it is really nice seeing them again after four years. We are having fun here and I am well rested I must say but honestly I missed my sister, my nieces, and my 3 years old charming nephew. Four more days and we are home again. May God bless our trip back home.

Ash Wednesday

Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, Catholic believers has black crosses on their forehead using the black ashes. Black ashes comes from the palms used in the previous Palm Sunday and mixed with holy water and oil. Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent Season. The 40 days of repentance, reconciliation and purification of the heart. The season of Lent is the best season to reconcile with our enemy, clear the misunderstanding, and ask for forgiveness. Also the fasting season. Eat light and no meat especially on Wednesday and Friday. This fasting is a personal endeavor between God and man (the person who is fasting).

Anyways, I went to church yesterday with my brother and sister. We always attend the church activity during Lent Season. And yes, we have black cross on our forehead. Hearing the preach yesterday opens my mind to repent, reconcile, forgive and forget. Let us swallow our pride. It is not how much others has hurt us, but it is the matter of bringing back the good relationship. It isn’t really easy I must say. And I hope this time I have lots of courage to reconcile with my cousins. It has been six years since we have our misunderstanding. My pride took this misunderstanding this long. Lord God give me the strength. Also, touch my cousin’s heart. Amen!
