Her 11th Birthday

My niece Ella turns 11 yesterday.  The family did have a simple celebration at home.  We did not invite friends and relatives because it is only dinner with the family, but the celebrant invites her best friend, our neighbor.  We allowed her since it is her day, and celebrating her day with her close friends makes her day extra special.  My father bought the birthday cake for his granddaughter as his gift, my sister gift some too to cook her favorite viand, and I since I do not have money I just rendered my cooking skills.  Well, they still love my cooking.  I am glad I have this kind of talent.

Even if the celebration is so simple, still it is memorable if you celebrate it with your family.  That is what I see on my niece face yesterday.  Anyways, on her special day I wish the niece the best of life, good health, grow up a better and responsible person, excel in her studies, and happiness in life.  I hope that she will be prayerful and always a good and respectful daughter to her parents.   I thank the Lord God for her life and for always guide her.  Lastly, I pray that the niece will have an awesome and wonderful in her life’s journey.

Thanks for the recognition

Every time my nieces and nephews has projects and assignments at school, I always help them if they asked me. This is because I see myself in them back when I was still studying. I do not have anyone to help me do my assignments, homework and projects. My father is busy at work, my mother passed away when I was nine (9), and my brothers and sister are busy with their own issues. There are times that I cry because no one is helping me. But I do not have regrets then because it made me stronger and better person. I learned to be independent at early age.

My experiences back then isn’t easy, that is why I always there to lend a hand to my nieces and nephews. My niece who is 12 years old always shares to me her life at school and what they do. I am always updated to be exact. Just recently, she told me that their teacher asked them to make an essay and the them is, “the person they are thankful for”. The niece told me that her essay is all about me. I am speechless and so touch. I didn’t know that the niece is always thankful for every thing that I did to her. Well, she is not vocal so I am surprised. Anyways, thank you niece for the recognition. I am not expecting it. I am really touch!

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!

Thanks for lending me your sewing machine

I have mentioned in my earlier post that I have made the kids costumes for their book parade at school. I was an instant dressmaker I must say because we do not have budget to pay the real dressmaker. It is my first time to sew a dress and I am pressured and scared. Pressured because I only have three days to finish their costumes and scared that I might ruin the fabrics. My interest in making dresses started when I was younger and seeing my late mother sewed dress for me and my sister. I took a little skill from my mother so to speak. So before starting sewing, I prayed for my mother’s guidance.

Sewing the kids costumes won’t be possible without the generosity of my neighbor. She let me borrowed her sewing machine for days without payment. I am so thankful for her because the costumes made possible because of her. Also thank her for she trusts me even if I do not have any experience in operating her sewing machine. It was really hard to run the manual sewing machine but it is fun. It is an adventure and another challenge for me. I am glad I am able to finish the costumes early without any mistakes. Thanks again for lending me your sewing machine. Till next time. God bless you more!

Still Thankful

I am still upset of what had happened to my phone. I cannot accept it that easy because it was the fruit of my labor online. It is not easy to do blogging and to buy what I want from the money I earned online is a wonderful feeling. I have a strong feeling that someone from the house open my bag and took it. I am angry and really mad when I found out that my phone was stolen. But there is nothing that I can do to return it back to me.

Days passed and still no trace from my phone, I learned to tell myself that it is lost forever. Instead of dwelling about what had happened, I have to let go if it and think that I am still thankful that he/she only took my phone. I have to think on the positive side and count my blessings. Though I lost one important gadget that I have, I am still blessed that I have me my most important gadget. My laptop who gives me an opportunity to earn online. It is still a blessing and I am so thankful about it. Thank you God for the blessings.
