My Path To Healing

Awareness of that pain

Acknowledge that it is part of human existence

Work hard

Aim for healing and forgiveness

Keep praying for wisdom and strength

Know that everything takes time

Be patient with yourself

Hang in there, never give up

Keep the faith

Communicate with your support group

Feed the mind with positive things

Surround yourself with people who will uplift you

Work on it

Be mindful

And one day you will just wake up

To find yourself free

Happy and at peace

With life’s unfolding events

You will see

There is truly room for forgiveness

All wounds heal

And love prevails…

Happy New Year to all my friends here in the blog world!

We are almost saying goodbye to 2015. Kiss your troubles goodbye. You will start 2016, wiser, stronger, more caring, more human.

 Keep writing and be inspired : )

 

 

Winter Break

For stay at home moms out there, I know some of you can relate to this. Now that it is winter break, kids are home.¬† I hear voices always saying, “Look Mom, Look Mom!” All at the same time. Simultaneous. While doing chores : ) It can get crazy. Need energy boosters!!!

I Dreamed Of You

She was laying in bed. On her side. Weeping. And there was an embrace from behind. She looked over and saw her Dad. Comforting her saying in Filipino, “Ganyan talaga hija.” (That’s how it is, my daughter)

And she woke up from her sleep. She felt happy that at least she gets to see him in her dreams…

Christmas Joy

It is almost Christmas time!

Busy shopping and wrapping presents

Sales in stores are everywhere

Acquiring material things is truly exciting

We get new things, more other things.

I know it is a cliche but now I realize

Happiness and joy is more than that

It goes beyond material possessions

Something beyond what you can see and hold.

 

 

LAUSD Schools Closed Today

Personally, I do not think that the Superintendent of L.A. Unified School District is over reacting with his decision to close the schools today due to threats. It is a hard decision to make but like what he mentioned he can not take the risk given the recent events in California. The main purpose is to make sure that the children are safe. Besides they are doing it in a calm and organized way. It is indeed easy to make criticisms. Maybe it is better if we all just help each other find out the source and make sure that people are safe. If it ends up to be a hoax, then it is good. Better safe than sorry.

As a parent, I have no problem with this. In fact I am grateful that the leaders are doing their job to protect us.

What Makes You Happy?

The other day I was all smiles

They delivered my new pet.

Zooming around the house,

I was singing in joy while pushing it around.

I felt very happy…

When I was a little girl I was thrilled with gifts like toys or new clothes

I felt equally the same when I got my new cleaning vacuum : )

 

This morning I had a “disciplining” moment with my boy

Just right before he went to school.

I do not like feeling mad and sad.

I felt my chest so tight.

And to relieve the stress

I started moving the furniture around.

My little girl asked, “Mommy why are you moving stuff?”

She was jumping on the couch and having a great time.

I rearranged the living room and gave it a different look!

 

Now I feel recharged.

I believe I am really getting old…

Vacuum and rearranging the house?

I feel it was unleashing my creativity.

 

Now I feel happy again.

Final Hour

Exactly four months ago at this very time the most terrifying thing in my life was happening. Standing outside of the ICU watching everything. My Dad’s final hour. 

Eternal rest grant unto Atty. Hermoso Tan Lazaro Oh Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul rest in peace.
