It is easy to wear a smile when life flows along like a river with crystal clear waters. Cheerfulness comes naturally and positive aura is written all over one’s face. It goes without saying that wearing a frown is as natural as breathing when everything goes dead wrong.
Truth be told, I am not the strong person I pretended to be. With all the crisis we’ve been going through since the beginning of this year, the demands of raising four children alone (physically, I mean. My partner abroad never fail to support us), and the pressure of finding a decent work from home job is making me feel so exhausted. I just want to disappear. However, holding on to my sanity and forcing myself to be someone with iron will is out of the question – God entrusted me with adorable little creatures I cannot just abandon.
Finding some ‘me’ time is not really an issue because I am not the type of housekeeper who’d die finishing all household chores before taking a break. I won’t let time beat me or at least that’s what I thought. Harsh as it is, reality speaks that time can never be tamed. Once it’s gone, we cannot take it back. No wonder, God created memories and dreams.
Today, I would like to express how grateful I am that God allowed me to cherish wonderful memories and to dream about wonderful things. It helps me escape my present reality for a moment and gives me the will to hold on, to see things in a positive perspective, and to hope that the best is yet to come.
Spring is drawing near Earth will be filled with cheers Guess it can’t be helped To cherish the memories we’ve shared Everytime this season appears

Nothing beats an unplanned get away. March 14th 2017 marked our youngest son’s third birthday. As always, my children prefer to eat out, play arcades, and enjoy rides in a mall. Out of the blue, we’ve decided (I always involve my children with things like these to make sure they enjoy.) to go on a staycation.
staycation–a vacation spent in one’s home country rather than abroad, or one spent at home and involving day trips to local attractions.
The place we’ve visited is quite far from home and since we don’t own a car we have to endure riding a PUJ (Public Utility Jeep) and a train station to reach our destination. Nevertheless, my children enjoyed the journey and the scenery.
Today, I’d want to express how grateful I am that God allowed us to experience wonderful moments in celebration of our bundle of joy’s third birthday. We, as parents would always find delight in seeing the happiness in our children’s faces much more when they enjoy life and make memories that we could cherish afterwards.
I would like to share this YouTube video I created and hoping that you’ll find inspiration in doing the things that would make you and your loved ones happy.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank God for His grace in giving my partner the ability to provide us with our needs and wants. I couldn’t be more thankful.
It’s in my nature To find love that is pure Be my own universe Blood that runs through my veins Who’s worthy of all my pain
