Promoting Values

Literally, every time I watch this commercial, tears flow from my eyes. No matter how many times I have seen it. It is funny how my children look at me or call me whenever it is on.

I guess I think about my daughter and my husband.  I think about my dad. I think about childhood and parenting. Children growing up. People growing old. I ponder on the cycle of life. Of how we all have common experiences in life. And no matter how sad or scary, we all have to go through it. And of course, never fail to see the happiness and beauty that also come with it.

First Of March

There was a time when my head was filled with thoughts. I had to write them down. They were overflowing. My heart was filled with emotions. I had to let them out.

I am not sure if it has something to do with the sudden loss of a loved one. But after that event, it seems like I have nothing much to say. Maybe my mind is still full of him. Or my heart still grieves.

I have not been writing as much. Instead I focus on music. I find it comforting. Healing. Some of the clips I share to my Instagram account (khris_79).

I know I will be back on track someday. For now, I will just let things be.

I hope you are doing fine as well as you read this. Keep inspiring others. Keep searching for that passion. Do things that will make you happy. Happy life. God bless you all.

 

 

Since I got back home, I usually feel sad, stressed out, and my temper short. I do my very best just to be a good mother although there are a lot of times my patience is being challenged.. Mind you, I generally feel happy and glad that I am back to personally take care of my family. My mother in law is still here until the end of this month as well as my mom. Maybe when things get back to normal, meaning my own established routine, and it will just be us home, slowly I will be able to have more time alone, hopefully more time to think and heal. School day starts soon and I am sure things will get back on track.

If nowadays I feel down, I know very soon I will again be the happiest.

I still count my blessings. All my friends who care, my family, my brother and sisters… And do not forget, the beer and the wine! 😉

Day Is Almost Over

It is the same everyday

There is a routine

There is order

We learn how to manage our time

To be efficient and effective

Responsibilities await us all the time

It is how we live in this world

And now my day is almost over again,

I  remember to pause

Appreciate beauty

Beauty that can be seen everywhere

A more meaningful way of living

Feel love, feel happy, feel blessed.

Heaven In Your Arms

Cuddling with my sweet girl is one of my favorite things to do.  From my experience, I can say that Having a boy is different from having a girl in some ways. With girls, you get to dress them up, style them, do “girly” stuff/play together. They are usually mellow than the boys. It is true for me  so I am more “relaxed” with her. They are such darlings and very sweet especially to their daddies. Mine is definitely a daddy’s girl!

With my son, I usually need to keep up with his energy, with his inquisitive mind, with his talking and moving around. He seems more dependent than his little sister.  Calls my attention all the time. I guess he is a mommy’s boy. Although now that he is turning 7, I notice that we argue a lot. He is really challenging my patience. He is strong willed and … He is just growing fast. And yes, before I realize it, my baby girl will be too.

I notice I am starting to have strands of white hair. Found two strands recently! Being a parent can be so hard! I am not complaining, but just expressing. It is really exhausting but rewarding too (mixed emotions – driving me crazy). It is a big responsibility raising children. We are responsible for their well being, to provide them with their needs not just material but emotional, intellectual, spiritual and others. It is truly a mission to raise human beings who can thrive in this difficult and yet wonderful life, who will be happy, successful, and kindhearted people. May God bless and help each parent on earth!

I have a long way to go. For now, while they are little, I will have to enjoy the moments cuddling with them! Heaven is here 💕

May 25, 2015

Yesterday we celebrated our 8th Wedding Anniversary. This was the time we got married in a court house. 1st of May was the church wedding. So we get to remember two dates when we promised our lives to each other.

As usual, nothing fancy. No fancy gift or celebration. We usually make it as a family celebration. We brought the kids to the beach and we just had a nice moment.

I loved burying my feet in the sand. It felt so warm and the texture was very therapeutic.

I also loved how it looked like. It was a work of art…

The sky and the ocean was so vast. I felt free and just glad.

I listened to the sound of the waves and felt the breeze on my skin. They have always been so comforting. My mind afloat.

WP_20150525_030When my boy was little, he was afraid of the waves. He was not fond of the beach at all. He just liked playing in the sand. On the other hand, my little girl is different. She loved the water. She even cried when we said bye bye.

Now, look at my boy. He was out there. He loved the water. We all had fun soaking our feet and legs, running from the waves, and just standing there. At first it looked really cold. But once you just get yourself in it, you will realize that it is all good. You will get used to it. There is nothing to be afraid of. In fact you will learn how to love every moment of it.

It felt home. There is that certain feeling when a human being is one with nature. It feels special.

I mentioned this in my instagram account. I dream to travel the world. To see as many countries and culture as I can. I even want to see the earth from afar or see the space like the astronauts (although I am very much afraid of heights). And I said to myself, it is a nice dream. But I should embrace and focus wherever God has put me, wherever I am right now, because there is so much beauty around. Beauty and blessings are everywhere. I have to make the best memories out of them. The best journey ever!
