Irresistible

behind.jpgIn your eyes all I can see
Is fading image of me
You are not what you used to be
Acting like you never once loved me
I may be wrong, but I bet
I cannot just forget
Your stare that captured my heart
Touch that brought me warmth
Smile that outshines the sun
And kisses that made me lost my mind
How could I possibly find courage
To let go of what’s really mine?

My Monthly Memories: January 2K17

mmm1.jpg

It’s been about two days now that the first month of the year have ended. So abrupt that I haven’t even noticed it the other day. But if there’s one thing I won’t forget is doing #mymonthlymemories post. This would be my second year of doing this wonderful blogging activity hosted by a lovely blogger, Basant She. You may want to visit her blog, The Socially Anxious Extrovert and be entertained by her adventures about life.

flowery      I love those random memories
      that makes me smile
      no matter what’s going on
      in my life right now…

I must say that this month of the year have been great and I’ve found myself smiling almost everyday. Learning the wisdom of giving without expecting anything in return, looking at things in a positive way no matter how awful it might be, and seeing the good side of others even if they did me wrong gave me peace of mind and happiness beyond measure. We truly have the power to turn disaster to our own advantage!

I would like to share my favorite post this January entitled, Silver Pride an entry to WordPress, Daily Prompt – Shine. It clearly defines how someone could still shine in the midst of adversities. I believe that the ability to surpass trials and difficulties in this life depends on a person’s mindset and determination. And I’m pretty sure almost all of you would agree that a problem is not really a problem if there’s a solution. So whatever situation we are in no matter how tough or insurmountable it may seem, we shouldn’t lose hope. Instead of wallowing in self doubt or self pity, we should put our best foot forward to advance and keep on going. Life may give us a series of unfortunate events but as long as God is allowing us to breath, we can still be happy and make others happy.

I’d like to share a few things that makes me happy these days:

Cheers to a positive and happier February to all of us. I am grateful to God for all His grace. Having adorable and healthy children, and a very supportive partner is more than enough reason to celebrate life everyday.

Something We’ve Learned

It’s been roughly four consecutive days that I had a hard time blogging due to issues with our ISP (Internet Service Provider). The system was down and I needed to go to an internet cafe to write post for A to Z challenge for I hate to miss a day. I feel sorry not to be able to read posts from blogs I follow, not to mention acknowledging likes, and answering comments. Thank God! it’s all sorted out.

We gained something out of what happened in the past couple of days. Having an internet access for 24 hours and seven days a week had a huge impact with how we kill time and manage boredom in the house.

Furthermore, it affected the way my children bond with each other. Their routine after breakfast: my eldest daughter would sit in front of our desktop to watch Anime’ series, second daughter would grab the remote and turn on the Smart TV, connect it to WiFi and watch YouTube videos, my first born son would grab his Samsung Tab4 and watch MineCraft and lastly, our 2 year old youngest son would ask me to turn on the laptop so he can watch Nursery rhymes. While they’re all busy doing their own things, I will start to do my household chores like cleaning the house, doing the laundry, ironing clothes, and preparing food for our lunch.

The Artist In Them

Summer vacation is fast approaching, my children will be staying home more often and it means more time to bond and enjoy each other’s company. As a mother, I feel great joy in seeing my children enjoying every moment that they have at home, I don’t want them to feel bored when school days is over.

I am reminded by their activity last year. It was really fun, they bond and learned something new all at the same time. We discovered an activity that would kill time and unleash the artist in them… LOOM BAND MAKING

This activity really measured their patience and determination. Since this is new to them, watching a tutorial in YouTube did a great help.

It’s amazing to see the loom bands they made. I’ve seen how elated they were after they finished their project. I am so proud of their work:

 

This coming summer vacation, we have so many things in mind but our top priority is to explore their creativity with cross stitching. Whatever happens, the most important is the moments in between.
