This is indeed very true, easy to say but very hard to do.
I hope and pray that those who are in this situation will
have the courage to really really put it down and never look at it again
to avoid temptation.

God bless everyone. Happy Thursday to all!

You are not so for me

During my younger years I used to experiment things, I love to explore and mostly suffer the consequence early. Good thing though for all the bad things I've tried to do I never have liked it and friends who does it don't want to influence me that bad as well. When I tried to drink alcohol , I did first become dependent on it but later on I realized I didn't like it all and stop drinking. I also tried smoking but since it felt like it suffocating me I stopped right away.

I'm just thankful that the Lord has spared me for being addicted to those vices and have spared me of possible internal damage and sooner death. I just can't imagine myself going to the mall and stopping at  discount cigar shops to avail the discounts. I probably poorer than I think if I did not stop this thing. May those who are into this would do it gradually to avoid problems.

The poor, the rich, and the needy.

We went to church last Sunday very late, in fact we almost hit benediction when we arrived, and we put all the blame on the slow bus to excuse ourselves. Well, how I wish we have  a car to use to so that we don't have go the commuting ordeals. As you may know, it would take five rides for us to get to our home church and it's the same thing coming back home. (This is me wishing I have cars, big house, and more money in the bank).

It probably took us 30  minutes or more waiting for the bus, but when it finally came, it was loaded with people. We were forced to get in the bus even though we know that we have to stand in the aisle co'z there's no available seat for us. Hubby and I were grateful that we were able to ride the bus. I could tell that hubby was struggling hard to stand straight holding on with the side bar so that he won't fell specially that he was carrying our adorable baby.

I could feel hubby's uneasiness and so I took Ziah (our baby) from him, ignoring the risk that I am standing besides the mini-bus door and if I'm not careful when the driver hit breaks I  might be pushed off the bus. Then as I was trying to hush my crying baby, the guy seated in front of me looked at us with concerns in his eyes and offered his seat for us. Of course I took it and was very thankful. I looked back though and I saw him balancing himself just like I did when I was the one standing up.

As I was sitting comfortably, it made think of the rich people who never experience what I just had experienced. I could tell that the person who just extended the help to me is no rich man an in fact was needing the seat too but since he saw that I needed it the most he it gave it up for me. The act that the man has given me made me thank God that we don't have  a car  and I have given this opportunity of being helped upon. As you should know, I was thinking of how I could be get rich so that I it won't be a hassle for me to do things. I know it wasn't a great thing (the guy did) though but it just struck me to my core that being poor is not a crime at all and in fact it's a blessing.

It just depend on how we look at things.

Like Mother.. like daughter

"When are you coming?"
"On Sunday, why?"
"Because I want to get somethings, make the bed..."
"Oh, Mom," she said.
I felt an echo in me:
I had made the beds just the weeks before on a visit  to my mother's, because of her back.
Always before she had, but now I did, knowing where everything was: I had moved her there.

Looking for recipes of dishes my daughter likes, I found the ones for meals I had made my mother,
in her new kitchen, and put them away like an echo in a drawer.
Reviewing their ways, looking for similarities in their rhythms (there were non);
I weighed them against my need to be alone.

I am related to neither now (their blue eyes are so dissimilar) and yet I am their link.
There are echos back and fort through me:
I live alone, as I do my mother and my daughter,
none of us in the house
where we were raised
or spent our marriages.
Each of us is careful of the others,
unyielding in small significant ways.

I now mother my mother
when I can no longer mother my daughter
who is older than I have ever felt myself to be. - Susan S. Jacobson

Who's the boss

A farmer's son decided to get married. When his dad heard the news he said, "John, when you get married your liberty is gone!" The son questioned this and refused to believe it. The dad said, "I'll prove it to you. Catch a dozen chickens, tie them up, put them in the wagon, and go to town. Stop at every house and wherever you find the husband is boss give him a horse. Wherever you find the woman is the boss, give her a chicken. You'll give away all your chickens and you'll come back your team of horses intact.

John accepted the proposition and drove to town. He stopped at every house and had given away ten chickens  when he came to a nice little house. The old man and his wife were standing out in front on the lawn. He called to them and asked, "Who is the boss in your house?"
The man replied,  "I am."
He turned to the lady and she said,  "Yes, he's really the boss."
John was excited with the prospect of establishing the boss in this home, so he invited them to come down into the street;  explained his proposition and told them to select one of the horses. The old man and his wife looked  them carefully and the husband finally said, "I think the black is the better, I choose him."
The wife said,  "I think the bay horse is the better. I'd choose him."
The old man took another careful look at the bay horse and said, "I guess I'll take the bay horse."
John smiled and said, "No you won't, you'll take a chicken!"*

Personally I really don't know what to say co'z I'm a woman. Things like this really happens with hubby and I. It may be a shameful thing to admit... that I sometimes/most times overrule my hubbiness.

May the Lord grant me with total obedience.

Happy birthday Tay!

There's a lot of questions in our mind and only you could answer all these. Yet the big question is how, and if time comes that there is an opportunity to laid down the questions will you be willing to laid down honest answers as well? I doubt!

Sigh! in fact... deep sigh!  I may not a blood related to you but being just a daughter in-law doesn't mean I don't care, I care a lot actually co'z seeing your children wondering... is really a hard thing. They may smile at you when you come home but behind such smiles are questions need to be answered with no one but you.

(a card greeting made by Lara, wish you could see this)

Actually if you just promise to come home on a regular basis I might have bought you a present a pandora bracelet not personally  for you though because this is a girl thing but for you to give to mom as a peace offering. But I don't any material thing could make you come home and be a regular Dad to your children because as mom said you've been like this even before hubby came to life. 

Well don't get mad if you happen to read this post (even though I know that there is negative zero probability) but still, I just want you to know that this is just a personal opinion of mine which don't matter to you.

I wish you good health and good life though!

Today is his b-day

...and since yesterday we're waiting for him to come home co'z we promised him that we are going to treat him dinner somewhere. But since its almost past dinner and there's no possibility that hes coming home, we instead decide that we will still do the dinner thing but we will go out as our first plan but  we will do it just here at home. 

Hubby and his sister is going to pizza hut to get pizza, then I will a carbonara inspired pasta to match with our pizza. I just don't though what flavor their getting, but one thing is for sure... we're having pizza for dinner.
