Another angel added in the family

Last November 12, 2013, my sister-in-law (wife of my younger brother) gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. It was the happiest day of their lives to see the fruit of their love, their bundle of joy. She gave birth via C-section because the baby is too big. The baby is 8 pounds to be exact. The family is happy for them and welcoming the new angel in the family. Unfortunately, we did not able to visit them at the hospital because they live very far from us. Only the older brother went to visit them and bring the little help we have. I wanted to come and see the baby too but it is not possible since I am babysitting my nephews too.

Anyways, I get to see the photo of my new nephew named Zeus Marllo through my brother’s mobile phone. The baby is so cute I must say. Looking at his photo makes me want to carry him on my arms. I really wish I go with my older brother when he went to visit to see the baby personally and also to congratulate my brother and his wife, though I did extend my congratulations through phone. I also told to visit us and bring the baby so we can see him, carry him and kiss him. See the image of the new angel added in the family.

Ornaments to put on our Christmas tree

A week ago, I decided to put the Christmas tree in the living room and the Christmas lights outside the house because the kids are bugging me. They got so excited after seeing Christmas decorations at the mall. My original plan was to buy new decorations/ornaments first before putting up the Christmas tree; however, I did not able to because of the kids. Out Christmas tree is up now but looks so bare because I do not have much decorations/ornaments yet. Since the Christmas tree is up now, I have to make time to visit dept 56 christmas in the city to buy ornaments to put on our Christmas tree. I cannot wait so see the look of our Christmas tree after putting the new decorations/ornaments. I am pretty sure that the kids would love to watch our Christmas tree.

In life, we may face several trials and difficulties. It is part of life and part of living, though we sometimes questioned God why it is happening to us. And we sometimes us Him, why me? I admit I do asked God why sometimes. But even though we are questioning and complaining sometimes, still we are doing our very best to find solutions and ways to overcome the trials we are facing. We may fail sometimes and it makes us wants to quit, but because we want to continue to live we are able to bounce back and move on. We choose to continue the journey in life. Besides life is not only a bunch of joy, there are also trials and difficulties for us to appreciate more the beauty of living.

Though we are experiencing hardships in life, we have to keep in mind that God will never ever leave us. He is always watching us and looking unto us on how we are going to bounce back from falling. We just have to keep the faith in Him for He won’t give trials that we cannot bear. In a way, it is like testing us on how we like to live and how we like to continue the journey of living. Because at the end of the day, it is not about how many times we fall down, but it is how we are able to bounce back. So, keep moving, continue the journey, because life is beautiful. Thanks God for the gift of life.

Giving away my sling bag

I always believe in the saying “it is better to give than to receive”. Not all of us are fortunate enough to have the things that we want. Just like me, I do have list of the things that I am dying to have, however, considering my situation I guess I have to admit that those stuffs are just a dream to me. Too good to be true, but I am open to possibility that I will be able to have some of those in my list. I must admit I am envious when I saw someone having the things that I like. How fortunate they are to have the things they like and want. Getting envy is normal I guess, but I am trying my best to not to.

Anyways, few days ago the family and I went to my aunt’s place. We were attending the nine days novena for my late cousin. After the novena, I am having conversation with my other cousins when one cousin got interested in my sling bag. She asked me if I could give it to her. I did not respond at first because I do not have extra sling bag. I have just given away my other sling bag few months ago. However, thinking about giving is a joy in once heart so I talked to the family especially to my sister about it. The sister decided to just give it away. I did give my last sling bag to my cousin that day. It makes me happy seeing her smile after accepting the sling bag. Indeed, the feeling is great to give and bring happiness to other/s.

Browsing in the internet while waiting for my sister

The reason why I decided to buy laptop is that I can carry it anytime, anywhere compared to my desktop. I do not need to worry if I am traveling or not at home because I can still do my online tasks because I can bring my laptop with me always. Anyways, one day while I am waiting for my sister to arrive, I am browsing over the internet. And thought of searching guitars since the brother is thinking of buying a guitar. I bumped into the Fox Oboes at wwbw. It reminds me of my uncle who used to play the same instrument at the church. Sadly, he is not playing anymore because he is old. This instrument is very unique and I seldom seen a woman playing this kind of instrument. If given the opportunity, I would like to learn how to play this instrument and own one someday.
