Watching the sun fall into sleep
With your embrace and passionate kiss
I wish we could forever stay like this!

Cheers to another week of Sonya‘s Three Line Tales! This photo is quite intriguing. It took me more time to come up with an interesting tale. This is another mind-boggling photo prompt. And yet, I enjoyed the moments in between and the sharing as well. You may want to join us, please head on to Only 100 Words for full instructions.

Weekly Quotes To Ponder 21

I won’t let this day pass without writing a post for our ‘Weekly Quotes To Ponder‘ feature. I am even excited to share my thoughts about a certain quote I encountered recently while browsing Facebook.


Oftentimes, people would say that if someone really loves a man or a woman they will change their wicked ways or strive hard to be a better person to be worthy of their love or affection. I’ve had that same notion before. I even came to a point where I told a boyfriend that I would definitely end our relationship if he would not stop smoking. This boyfriend of mine did stop smoking (when I’m around). Yes, you read it right. I’ve caught him still doing it. Then I realized that it is useless to threaten him to change for himself, for me, and for us.

Too often than not, we are quick to judge others and speak ill of them unaware that we are also guilty of the same thing. When I read about the quote above, it reminds me of the truth that the biggest battle that we have to win every day is the battle within ourselves. This quote also helped me to be more understanding of others imperfections and shortcomings. I am now milder to myself and others and I’m happy about it.

How about you? What is your thought about this? I’d be glad if you share it with me. Thank you!






Tokens of Gratitude: First Born Son

I’ve always wished for a son but after I gave birth to my two daughters, I learned to accept that there are things in life that we cannot have and my longing seems to ebb. My beautiful girls got most of their physical attributes from their  father and looking at their resemblance always amaze me.


Life’s full of surprises. I never thought that I would get pregnant after my second daughter turned two, it was really unplanned. I am even taking contraceptive pills those days. At first, my partner won’t approve of the pregnancy and asked me to do something  to get rid of it in the first trimester. He believed that it’s too early for us to have a third child.


4th of July, 2009 at exactly 12:47 am I gave birth to a bouncing baby boy! A dream came true. The very first moment I laid my eyes on him, held his tiny fingers was one of the most amazing and most wonderful experience. I could still feel it even now while I’m writing this post. I’d like to share this fact – my first born son share the same birth date with his father and made my partner adore him more.


Today, I would like to express how grateful I am to Almighty God for giving us an opportunity to take care and love a son. Watching him grow up has made our lives as beautiful as a lovely rhyme.


Another late post from a very busy mother of four adorable creatures. Have a great week to yah all!


The bond between Mother and Son
is a special one
It remains unchanged by time or distance
It’s one of the purest love –
unconditional and true.
It’s understanding of any situation
and forgiving of any mistake..
