Thank you once again!

The sewing of the kids costumes for their recognition presentation won’t be possible without the kind heart of my neighbor. I know this is a bit late post because I borrowed the sewing machine for like three weeks now and done sewing already. It’s just that I got busy with other stuffs offline and I haven’t found time yet to sit down and write something on my blogs. Through this post I want to extend my warmest thank you to my neighbor who lend me her sewing machine. Big thank you for entrusting me your sewing machine. Though we don’t talk much, I really appreciate your trust in me. It was really a big help because I am able to sew the kids costumes. Also, I earned some from sewing other kids costumes.

In case you wonder about the title, I said once again because this is the second time that I am borrowing her sewing machine. The first time was like four months ago, when I sewed costumes for my nephew and nieces for their book parade at school. I am really thankful for the trust you have in me. These words are not enough of how thankful I am of you. May God bless your and your kind heart. Once again, thank you!

Thank you Lord for the skill

When I was little, I used to watched my late mother sewing dresses for me, my sister and brothers.  Sewing is one of my mother’s skills I must say.  Because I always look at my mother, I grew up drawing dresses on paper and cut it after.  I remember when my friend and I are playing paper doll, I am make my own doll and dresses for my doll because I do not have money to buy paper doll and dresses.  I envy them because their mother gives them money.  But I am thankful then because I develop my skill in making dresses.  I grew up dreaming to be a fashion designer someday.

My dream to become a fashion designer remains a dream because taking the course is very costly.  And my father can’t afford it.  Though I did not able to study the course that I wanted, I am still happy because I got the chance to sew dresses for my nephew and nieces costumes for book parade.  It was a dream come true to sew and make a dress.  Though I do not have any experience in sewing dresses at all, the experienced of watching my mother before is my only inspiration.  I really thought the costumes I made for the nephew and nieces are the first and the last one, but then I was wrong because just recently, I sewed another costumes for the nephew and his classmates for their school presentation.  I am really happy because I will be able to practice more.  The image above are the costumes that I sewed.  I thank God for the skills and my late mother for being my inspiration.  I hope that I will be able to pursue my dreams in making dresses or even be a dressmaker in the future.

Feeling like a choreographer

Two weeks from now, the nephew will be having their recognition day. The teacher held a meeting to all the parents to let the parents know of the plans for the coming recognition day. I was the one attending the meeting because my sister working. We were told that the kids will have dance presentation. One parent, volunteered to be the choreographer. However, when she told the teacher of the kind of dance the teacher did not like it. Because I wanted to help, I suggest a good song. The teacher likes it and told me if I could teach the kids as well. I was not able to respond right away because I am shocked!

Anyways, because the teacher asked me to teach the kids I made steps for the song I suggested. Now, I am their choreographer, well feeling like a real choreographer. This is not new to me though because I have teacher before, but this is the first time I’ll be teaching kids with ages 4, 5 and 6. It is really difficult because they are not listening, others do not like to dance, some are crying, having tantrum and some are playing. It really testing my patience, I am glad I have enough patience. I really hope, that they will participate so their dance number will be a good one.

The Love Month: Who is going to be my date?

First month of the year just bid goodbye. Here comes the month of February a.k.a the love month. I must say love is in the air this month because of Valentine’s Day, the day where lovers and couples are waiting for. I expect more heart stuffs, red stuffs, flowers, etc… display in the malls, stores, shops. And I hope to receive one this year.lol Well, my Valentine’s day last year is not bad at all because I did have a dinner date with my friend. My dearest friend Ada. We have been friends for more than a decade. And celebrating V’day with her is memorable. It is also our first time celebrates V’day together.

Anyways, I am looking forward to have dinner date again with my friend Ada this Valentine’s day. However, I got a message from her saying that she will be out-of-town for a month and she will be back on March. She is very busy at school. I felt sad because my only date is not available. Who will be my date? This is the question that enters my mind after reading Ada’s message to me. I hope there is someone there who would ask me for a date.LOL Well, I am used to celebrates V’day at home with the kids. They are my date this year. I will be spending this love month with the kids. But, I am still praying and hoping for a great surprise on V’day.

One year older

Yes! I am one year older yesterday. I am not getting any younger. Because it is Saturday, I do not have to wake up early. I take my time resting and get more sleep before starting my day. Though I am not thinking of doing any household chores because it is my day. I just have to sit down. My brother and SIL are there so no babysitting job for me too. After getting myself ready, I went to church to give thanks to the Lord for another year of life blessings. My sister accompanied me at the church. I went to the cathedral because the priest will blessed the birthday celebrants. I have not tried it before so I want to experience it.

Now that I am one year older I expect more pressure from the people around me. I am for sure that they will ask me the same questions before. I do not have any plans of answering them. I would just give my sweetest smile. haha! Anyways, I want to give thanks to the Lord for my family for always there for me, for my sister, friends, and for keeping me safe always. I wish good health for myself, happiness in life and hopefully love life this year.*wink
