Beautification outside the home

One way of making our home a home sweet home is to beautify it. We do some home renovation, put ornaments, paintings hanging on the wall to make the home an attractive one. Once the beautification inside the home is done, it is right to do the same outside out home. And one nice decorations to beautify the home is to put fountain outdoor. Resting in the yard looking at the fountain and the water that falls is so relaxing. At some point, it would drop the stress feeling we have. If I have extra, I would love to have this kind of fountain outside our house.

Happy but sad

Few days ago, my uncle passed away. It was the saddest moment of his family. He was confined in the hospital for days but was not able to recover. I felt sad for my cousins and my aunt because they are not ready yet to accept that their father passed away. They wanted him to fight back but then again, my uncle is too weak to recover. My uncle is 78 years old and lives a wonderful life. Though it is not good to say this, but I think 78 years old isn’t bad at all.

Anyways, the death of their father made their family get together. The cousins who are working in northern area of the country went home. They have worked for years there and seldom see their parents and some siblings who live with their parents in the province. They are happy to see each other again but sad because their father passed away. The absence of their father makes the family stronger. They comforted each other and comforted their sad mother. Death means not seeing that particular person, and it will take time to forget and accept. But if we are to think about the happiest moment when they are around, and thinking that the/she is still there watching us would help us in accepting that, that person is now in the place of our Almighty Father.

Coffee maker for my father

I was helping the sister in cleaning her house when I saw her coffee maker. I asked her if she is still using it and said she didn’t use it anymore. Some parts of the coffee maker is not working anymore that is why the sister stuck it inside the drawer. My father is a coffee drinker and I wanted to buy him coffee maker but I do not have extra yet. Since the sister is no longer using her coffee maker, I asked him to give it to me and I will buy bunn replacement parts so that the father can use it. I do have not need to buy coffee maker for my father because the sister gave it to me her old coffee maker. Thanks to my dearest sister.

25th years of bitter and sweet

My cousin and her husband celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary last April 20, 2013. It was a big event for the couple because they will get married again to renew their vow of marriage. It was their children’s idea to get married again on their 25th years of bitter and sweet. Though we are not that close compared to my other cousins, I can tell that the couple did surpass the 25 years of quarreling, crying, smiling and happenings. Well, those are parts and spices of married life. Their successful children are proof that they indeed a parents that everyone is dreaming to have.

Almost all the relatives have the part in the ceremony, including my nephew. Unfortunately, we did not able to come and witness the ceremony because we came in very late. Because the ceremony is finished, we went directly to their house. Just like before, we get to see aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews and closest friends. It is sort of reunion. That’s makes the day a very memorable one.

Anyways, I want to extend my congratulations to my cousin and her husband on their 25th wedding anniversary. May God bless you both always and more life to live together. I am looking forward on your golden anniversary.

The cabinet she wants

Because the sister can’t find the kind of drawer she wanted to buy, she decided to have it made to order. She already talks to someone who knows how to make a cabinet. But unfortunately, the one she hires is busy at the moment. The sister felt badly because she already bought the things needed like woods, hinges, nails, 22″ Drawer glides, ply boards and the likes. Surprisingly, her husband told her that he will do it. The sister is shocked because she did not expect that her husband knows how to make a cabinet. The cabinet is finished after two months. Haha! Yes, two months because the brother-in-law is busy and only has time during Sundays. The sister is happy now because she got the cabinet that she wants made by her husband. She is able to save money because it is for free.
