Beyond Hope #SoCS

beyond.jpgI have never felt this cold before. It’s as if I am inside a refrigerator waiting to be frozen to death and to meet oblivion. I feel more than numb, the excruciating pain I felt a couple of minutes ago is gone. I fell into a deep slumber. But before my consciousness left me, I finally utter my last prayer, that if ever fate would be kind enough to wake me up, I would be given a chance to find the man of my dreams alone and free.

I ache to see his eyes burn for me, so intense that it could melt my heart in seconds. I want to feel the warmth of his touch, that lingering embrace that makes me feel secure. I would love to see us holding hands in public. Kissing me softly in front of other people. I would like to show the whole world that he is mine and I am his. That our love could outshine even the hotness of the sun.

 

Greetings!

This is in response to a Saturday blogging event hosted by Linda G. Hill entitled, Stream of Consciousness Saturday 

This may be late but better be late than never. Cheers!

Fondness for Him

I never felt safe and warm with someone other than him. Whenever I feel anxious and panicky, I just think of leaning my head on his shoulder or putting my face on his chest while I take a deep breath and everything seems to be alright.

Do you believe that the best love is unexpected? That you just don’t pick someone and cross your fingers that it’ll work out? That love, at first sight, is but a tip of the ice burg? When I talk and notice the way his lips curve when he smiles or the glow in his eyes while he listens to me without batting an eyelash. But of course, love is more of a decision not just feelings. When the other person becomes difficult to deal with and yet you stayed, that’s when you’ll know that it’s love. Genuine love is selfless and full of hope.

Nothing in the world smells as good as the person you love…

This really beats me. Whenever I encounter a place we’ve been, I can’t help but reminisce everything we’ve shared. His smell still lingers in our bed, and even in my head. I crave for his presence now that we’re a thousand miles apart and I doubt if I could ever love this way again.

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

Tokens of Gratitude : Birthday

moa2.jpg

 

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 for our youngest bundle of joy, #hendrixkulit

 

 

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.

TANKA 21: Mi Amore

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

mi amore


Hello, everyone! I can’t forgive myself if I forget to partake in this wonderful mental exercise – TANKA  Poetry challenge hosted by Kiwinana of Ramblings of a Writer blog. For instructions, kindly click here. I can’t wait to read your entry.

 

I’m Thankful For Tag

Oftentimes, we tend to overlook the things that matters a lot. Fate lends no one, the world mocks at us especially when it sees we’re on the verge of giving up. It makes us ungrateful sometimes or would it be right to say, we’re actually grateful but unable to express it openly because our anxieties overshadows it.

I am so delighted to receive a tag from a friend blogger, Sonali Mukherjee about her Thankfulness post. I dedicated this moment to participate to show how much I appreciate it. She never fail to include me whenever she received an award in blogging and it means a lot, she’s just so sweet.

For the rules:

  1. List down three things you are thankful for.
  2. Nominate fellow bloggers to continue the TAG.
  3. Use a cool logo to match up with your even cooler answers.

My Answers:

  1. Having a FAMILY I can call my own. I don’t have a normal upbringing with my family. I am being tossed from one relative to another and when I was in college, I need to live on my own in a province without any relatives. It makes life so tough that time – no one to turn to, no one to belong to. That’s why when I met my partner and God blessed us with four children, I couldn’t be more happier.
  2. Being affiliated with MCGI (Members Church of God International). Being a Christian is the most wonderful gift I received from God Almighty. It made me realized my life’s purpose and no matter how difficult the path may be, I am confident that with God’s help and mercy, I can live the life that’s meant for me.
  3. Blessings in disguise. Family life is quite tough. Before we reach our present status where we could now buy what we need as well as what we want, we have to go through too much difficulties during our first three years of building our family. There were even times that we barely eat a decent meal in a day. Our relatives would mock us and talk poorly about us in our face. Thank God, my partner is a strong-willed person. While I drown myself in tears, he did everything he can to find a regular job and support me emotionally and financially to pull myself up and land a career in a call center industry.

And for my nominees:

  1. Kiwinana of Ramblings of a Writer
  2. Miriam of Out ‘an About

Anyhow, there’s no need to participate if your time won’t allow it but I would be delighted if you would. Once again, thank you!

 

Weekly Quotes To Ponder 38

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.
