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.

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.
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.
Preparing healthy foods that my children would like or love to eat is one of the challenges I have to face as a mother. As time goes by, I’ve learned how to experiment. Let me share at least five of the many recipes that my children really love:
Grilled Liempo combined with String beans omelet
Lumpiang Shanghai with lots of Carrots and Onions
Sauteed veggies with ripe mangoes
Unripe Jack fruit Stewed in Coconut Milk with lots of shrimp
Hopefully, these recipes I’ve shared would give my readers some ideas that would help them with the challenge of cooking healthy foods that their children would love to eat. All the best!
