HOPE

Murky, distant, future – hold still
Steel – Pierced in my heart
An emblem of a strong will!

My Monthly Memories: JANUARY 2K19

Hello people in blog-o-sphere! It’s been awhile now that I haven’t been able to write in my blog. I hate it when I am just doing something for the sake of doing it. I am a kind of person who can do well when I am on fire. This post is in response to a monthly blogging event called #mymonthlymemories hosted by a gorgeous blogger Basant She of The Socially Anxious Extrovert. I’ve been taking part of this since 2016 and I find pleasure in doing so, as always. Nostalgia is but a part of my everyday life. I cannot even remember a day when I did not look back and savor a memory. Hence, I called myself a sentimental fool. You may want to join us, please click this link here.

And oh, the very last entry that I have here in my blog was last October 2018. It is a three-liner entitled ‘Still Waters‘. I nailed down another homebased job as an email customer support for an E-commerce company the same month and I haven’t had the time to write until now. Imagine a single mother of four, having two regular work from home jobs, with dozens of household chores to attend to, surely, time management is but a challenge.  Thank God, with His mercy and grace we are surviving.

I love those random memories that make me smile; 
no matter what’s going on in my life right now.

I don’t have much to look back last January in regards to my blog but I could share a couple of things that happened last month that I believe worth sharing here. First off, I am relieved because the father of my children is connecting with them again. As I have mentioned in one of my posts last year, my love for my children is big enough for me to set aside whatever ill feelings I have for this man. My children’s happiness and welfare is more important than my own.

 

I am also enjoying the freedom of hoarding books these days. I really cannot resist the urge of buying books that I find interesting. I’m afraid I need another cabinet. Reading is one of my hobbies. It is one way for me to detoxify my mind. Escaping reality at times is not a bad thing, right? If only we could read two books all at the same time, lol.

I could tell that last month is not so great but at least it’s not bad. I look forward to a promising February, though and I can’t wait to share it here. May we all continue to look at things in a positive perspective and hold on to the hope that the best is yet to come.
