Mother Is Heaven

My Mom

 

Mother is HEAVEN
Subsistence pal.  True-hearted
WOMAN… Full of LIFE!

My Mom

Today is my mom’s birthday.  She was already gone but I see and talk to  her in my dreams, whenever I seek guidance or some advise. And most often her advises worked on me.
For instance, one of them, like 2 years ago, I noticed a little dark spot on my upper right cheek and it was getting darker and darker.   I applied different bleaching products that was prescribed to me by my dermatologist, but none of which ever help to fade away the dark spot.  And then one night I dreamed that I was with my mom and she told me the medication that I should used instead. Believe it or not, the result was amazing.  It worked!

It really feels good to know that she’s still around whenever I need a mother touch.  Yes, I know I am already a mother but it just feels so joyful to have my mother with me even only through my dreams.

A Blessed Birthday
You’ll always be missed and loved
I love you Mamang.

” The Wisdom of a Little Boy “


Grandpa- Wisdom of a little boy

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year-old grandson. The old man’s hands trembled, his eye sight was blurred, and his steps faltered. The family ate together at the table, but the elderly grandfather’s shaky hands and failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he grasped the glass, milk spilled onto the tablecloth. The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the messes.

“We must do something about Father,” said the son. “I’ve had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor.”

The husband and wife set a small table in the corner. Grandfather ate alone there while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner. Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl. When the family glanced in Grandfather’s direction, sometimes he had a tear in his eye as he sat alone. Still, the only words the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food. The four-year-old watched it all in silence.

One evening before dinner, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the floor. He asked the child sweetly, “What are you making.”

Just as sweetly, the boy responded, “Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and Mama to eat your food from when I grow up.” The four-year-old smiled and went back to work.

The words so struck the parents that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done.

That evening, the husband took Grandfather’s hand and gently led him back to the family table. For the remainder of his days, he ate every meal with the family. For some reason, neither the husband nor the wife seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk was spilled, or the tablecloth was soiled.

You will remember this tale tomorrow, a week from now, a month from now, a year from now.

On a positive note, ponder the following lessons learned:

1. No matter what hap pens and no matter how bad things seem today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

2. You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles the following things: a rainy day, the elderly, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

3. Regardless of your relationship with your parents, you will miss them when they are gone from your life.

4. Making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.”

5. Life sometimes gives you a second chance.

6. You should not go through life with catcher’s mitts on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.

7. If you pursue happiness, it will elude you, but if you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others, your work, and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.

8. Whenever you decide something with an open heart, you usually make the right decision.

9. Even when you have pains, you don’t have to be one.

10. Everyday, you should reach out and touch some -one; people love that human touchholding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

11. You still have a lot to learn!

You should pass this on to everyone you care about!

blessed sunday

In The Still Of The Night

Today’s Cafe Siesta is to wake up your memories and experience some random flashbacks… by simply closing your eyes :)

This was another mail that I received from a friend of mine…   A long one but WELL worth it…. I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.  

“In The Still Of The Night” — YOU’LL LOVE IT!!

and he said,

“I hate to admit it but I can remember all of these as I’m sure you will also. I remember these things…but I do it with very fond memories! When life was soooo much easier and slow. ”  

“Sometimes you will never know the true value of a MOMENT until it becomes a memory”

Although, I wasn’t born in this era… I find this song very awesome :)

In the Still of the Night – Fred Parris and The Satins

I remember that I loved to play with my walking dolls that were almost as tall as I was…  I had plates, cups and saucers made of papers that I created myself.
I enjoyed running around with my siblings…  They would bring me with them to a river bank where it was not allowed for children to play.  One day they sneaked out and brought me with them, I was only 5 years old back then and when my father found us there, Yay!  He scolded the big ones but he spared me… hehehe… Because he believed I was innocent :)
I watched Tom and Jerry, Sesame Street after school.  Favorite TV shows and series were Wild Wild West, Different Strokes, Bob Hopes…  hmmmm  I feel happy already while thinking of those things…  I even could smell the donuts that my mom used to bake! Yummmy!

Here are some pictures I was able to scan from one of my old albums… :)

Yes Guys! Memories to treasure back…  Like this kind of feeling…

Okay, you can begin now to spend some time to close your eyes and imagine how it was… :)   and then you can grab your favorite tea or coffee and savor it and enjoy it to the last drop :)

Cheers!

Shake, Rattle & Roll Fun Ride
Riders feel like they are flying as they whirl, twirl and spin on this twisting, rotating fun ride.  It was fun all right, but it’s not my favorite. It was my first and last, hahaha. Anyways just look at these split-second shots and enjoy the ride.

This was such a terrible ride.  I had mixed emotion with it.  I had fun and adventure but definitely I won’t do it again.

My son Blue Belted Deu and his Black Belted Japanese Opponent after the fight.IMG_1376

My son lost in the tournament but according to my good friend Mark Armstrong  as quoted,  “In a case like that, winning is not really important. Having the experience is what’s important, and I’m sure it will serve him well. Just qualifying and getting into the tournament is a great achievement– he can be very proud of that.”

And I am so proud of my son :)

Here is the video of the fight …  Enjoy!

My little girl…

My Tajah Jireh

Your name means Crown and Provider
God had blessed me again for providing you to me
For the third time I became a very proud mother
For having such a beautiful baby as you
We’ve share a lot of laughter—a spirit of laughter and joy

I wanted to see you on my own eyes
While you were being taken out from me
And gush, I was really in pain but with you
And with the help of God I became so strong
Happiness was within me when I first laid my eyes on you
And had you touched my bosom skin to skin for the very first time
Wow! You are my joy and the apple of my eye
We overcome all the obstacles and you shared with me the glory of triumph

I love you my child you are my crown and beauty…
