If conscience is pure It makes no reasons obscure Taming animals in us Kindness, forgiveness overflows Its color is as white as snow
Here’s my entry for this week’s TANKA poetry challenge. I hope you’d enjoy reading it while looking at this blinding photo prompt. I definitely love the smile of this dog. And the snow, it’s making me feel this cold.

There are a lot of good things that happened last February and I cannot thank God enough! I’ve celebrated my fifth birthday in spirit (I became affiliated with MCGI year back February 2012) on the 17th. Ever since I was baptized, my faith in God Almighty became strong, keeping me sane from all the crazy events and crazy people around me and making me more positive about the future – that the best is yet to come.
I love those random memories that makes me smile no matter what’s going on in my life right now…
As with my blog, I was able to participate and make up for the weekly blogging activities like TANKA and Three Line Tales. I even had an entry for WordPress’ Daily Prompt entitled, Irresistible . I am happy that I was able to write at least more than 10 articles and I’m positive that I could write more this month. My children’s school days will be over soon and it means more free time for me, I’m so excited! I could write more, check and read blogs, and respond to comments in my blog.
February is good and I bet March would be better. That’s how I feel right now, actually. And I am determined to let it be this way every single day no matter how tough the trials can be. I’ve learned to be more optimistic nowadays and do whatever I can to understand others and it more than help me lessen my burdens and put a smile on my face. Here’s hoping you would all have more wonderful days ahead.
Sometimes, I deal with as many household chores as I can and do things simultaneously to buy some time to be alone and reflect afterwards. While sitting in my couch and looking blankly, I can’t help but wonder why there are people who’d rather stay with their pitiful situation than do something to change it or to at least try to pull themselves up? I understand, I cannot really tell what’s going on with someone else’s mind nor feel exactly how he/she must feel at a certain moment. However, most often than not, action speaks louder than words. It makes me sick to my stomach to see someone contented being a bum or a burden to others. Not that he’s helpless, as a matter of fact, others are trying to help him, but if he’s not going to help himself, no matter how many resources are available for him, it won’t make any difference. And what pisses me off is seeing this person go on with his life as if nothing really matters, enjoying himself, and it seems that he doesn’t have any plans in the future or whatever.
When we reached adulthood, we are expected to be independent and be responsible with our own life and future. We don’t stay with our parent’s house as if we are still children that is incapable of working for our own survival. For me, it is the time when we’re given a chance to take care of our parents like they did when we’re still young. We must understand that they are getting old and sooner than later, won’t be able to work for a living to continue supporting us. I once told myself that if I cannot be of help to my family, at least not to be a burden to them as much as possible. I held on to that promise until now and I must say that it guided me and gave me strength to survive my own battles.
Alright, this may sound like a rant. Forgive me but I have to let these things out of my chest right now or I’d have a heart attack or worst, would go berserk. Anyway, we’ve reached the 39th of our Weekly Quotes To Ponder moment. Here’s hoping I caught your interest with my thoughts and you gained something valuable from it. I would be delighted if you’d leave a comment. Remember, sharing is caring!
Looking up, reaching out Chasing rays of the sun Obstacles let’s withstand

Come here children
Indulge though this isn’t wonderland
Under the golden sun
Amidst the cool breeze we feel warm
Sharing one heartbeat, holding hands.
Time for anotherTANKA poetry challenge. This one is another way to practice my poetry and I enjoyed it, as always. You may want to try this mental exercise. For instructions, kindly click here. This is a Weekly blogging activity hosted by a friend blogger,Kiwinanaof Ramblings of a Writer. I can’t wait to read your entry.
It’s time for our ‘Weekly Quotes To Ponder‘ moment. I can’t wait to share my thoughts about this quote.
I must say that I am one of the most stubborn and impossible person to deal with when it comes to relationships. I have a very volatile nature, I am neither hot nor cold. A gullible and impulsive type. No wonder I have few true friends. But that’s fine with me. I never chase people anyway.
I am more of a ‘do not do what you don’t want others to do unto you’ type of person. I’m sure most of us, if not all, is familiar with the ‘Golden Rule’. One more thing, I have a strong belief in free-will. Never would I force others to agree with my own opinions or ideals, same goes with my partner. I never forced him to stay with me even though we have children or for the sake of keeping our family, not even once and will never be in the future. But don’t get me wrong, even though I made this clear to him doesn’t mean I don’t give a damn. In the contrary, aside from my faith in God, my family is the most important thing in this world for me. In their smiles lies my strength to move on despite all the difficulties in my way. Hearing their laughter reminds me that it is still great to be alive though the world seems getting cruel and cruel as days passed by. If I don’t have them, I doubt if I could survive this far.
I just wanted to share the quote above to shout out to the world how blessed I am to have a partner who stayed by my side no matter what. I am truly blessed. We may have misunderstandings most of the times, we may fight with petty things but at the end of it all we still have each other’s back. I thank God for him.
How about you? Have you found someone who took you just as you are no matter how difficult you can be? I’d be delighted to read your thoughts about this.
A heart of gold or a heart of stone? Crossroads ahead, confused where to turn Wisdom in each journey, one must absorb.
Cheers to another opportunity to take part in this wonderful mental exercise and poetry challenge called Three Line Tales.

The burst of greens Fresh air that lingers within A dose of own’s medicine Burnt bridges, cherished things Home for souls with shattered wings

Hi there people! We’re on our 37th Weekly Quotes To Ponder feature. I am suppose to do this yesterday, my mind is strong but my body won’t keep up that time so I decided to give myself a break. I’m sure you would agree that we all need to stop for a couple of minutes at times to allow our bodies to rest, we don’t want to be totally exhausted and end up so sick.
This time, I would like to get out of my comfort zone and try a different approach in sharing a quote. I just can’t help but share this video I found in my Facebook feed today.
I am teary-eyed while watching it, I can definitely relate. I don’t even have to elaborate what’s really going on with my everyday life as a Stay-At-Home-Mom – this video says it all.
Switching from working in the office to be a plain housekeeper is not an easy feat. There were even times I feel like a bum, I don’t have an income of my own and cannot even buy what I want for myself. Not to mention the difficulties of doing household chores that I am not used to. What I despise is the fact that I need to do things over and over again, I hate routines. However, if there’s one thing I love about staying at home it is the chance to bond with my children more often. The chance to interact with them almost all the time everyday. Seeing them smile, hearing them laugh, and seeing them living a good life is more than enough reason for me to survive this kind of life.
How about you? What are your thoughts about this? I would be delighted to read yours. Kudos to all stay-at-home-moms out there!
