Smiling Thoughts…

Forever Youthful

 

 

 

When I met you I tasted life
Like a bud, I blossom, I breathe

Never again would I strife
For your love and care are so deep

Smiling thoughts of you conquered me
In the morn when I make my coffee,

When I eat, or laugh you’re with me,
And everywhere it’s you I see,

Along the road, those lovely trees,
At my work with my Apple breeze,

These words I’m writing now, I grace
Because you put smile on my face

You’re the best part of my everyday
And at night when I lay down to sleep

Still there you are all over me
Smiling thoughts of you lingers great!

V and I met in IMVU,  January, 2010.   Our avatars just clicked together, hehehe.  After 6 months dating on the web, we decided to meet in person.

He introduced me to his family and friends.   Our True Romance started here in the Land Of Love- Paris. I visited him 3x in this year.  21 days in July.  A week in September. And another week in November.

2011

In this year I visited him 2x.  A week  in July and then  another week before Christmas.  But take note that we are always online everyday in Skype, since our Romance started in 2010 and up to now.   That’s how we take care of our Long Distance Relationship.  He’s now sleeping and snoring as I write this post.  hehehe :)

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.

My First Snow, Snowman, Ice Skating…

I am a having a moment recalling my first snow…  As you know that Philippines has only 2 seasons… The Wet and The Dry Seasons.  So when I was just a little girl, I dreamed to be able to make my own snowman one day…

And then… it happened:

Here I was in my first strolling in the snow…  I remember that I really did tumbledown right on the ground…  Well it didn’t hurt that much… For me it was an incredible and wonderful experience already! hehehhe

1546446_10152086636254501_960388506_n

Okay so here I was making my  snow-baby :)

1501831_10152086635924501_2069546972_n

Cha-charan… hehehe my snowbaby… :)
1495496_10152086635639501_736736366_n
Well it did not stop me from there… I went down to the backyard…

Wow! I thought, I just got enough snow to make my first snowman in here! 
1521887_10152086635834501_1580752406_n
Here I was enjoying to make my very first snowman… I was hoping the snow in Lizzie ‘s ( my cousin) backyard would just be enough to make one snowman for me… or else I might be tempted to get some snow from the other side of the fence… hahaha
1533956_10152086635989501_1452933969_n
Yiheyyy! I did it! And not forgetting the hat of Lizzie on it… what a cutie!
1527006_10152086635659501_113982400_n
 
Hayyyy… that sure was tiring but it’s worth it! 
1531675_10152086636034501_447210707_n
See! My first snowman was even smiling from ear to ear 
 :)
1480719_10152086635679501_390868517_n
Yay! Ice Skating…
I wouldn’t imagine it now how I was able to ice skate in that huge place…

1497667_10152086636104501_687323900_n
See me in the move here?
Well… I wish I could still do this to NOW.. 

 1526330_10152086636229501_821350549_n
Well these were just one of those memorable moments that I enjoyed too much!
Do you have one too?
Have fun everybody! xoxo

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!

Cheers!

I won’t be able to be with my kids this Christmas but the memories and togetherness of making our Family Christmas Tree with them count the most.

The joy of making it and sharing thoughts on how to do it was already a Blissful Family Christmas.

 

Enjoy Your Sunday!

A New Chapter Begins…

I feel great to tell everyone that I am now single.

Three years after my separation (2005), I have filed a marriage annulment (2008).

At long last this year 2013, last September 30, the court has decided and ordered that my marriage was null and void.

I am so happy as ever.

Happy because a new chapter begins in my life and I can move on forward.

Some of you may wonder and would ask me, “do you have any regrets at all?  Do you feel sad?

Well, honestly I do not have any regrets at all.  I have four beautiful, loving and responsible kids.  They are now all grown-ups and as a mother I am so fulfilled that I manage to put them all to school.  A year from now my first daughter, Maria Ahtalia will soon finish her Dentistry course and become a successful Dental Surgeon or Orthodontist.  My second daughter, Greta Garda will soon graduate in IT course 5 months from now to become a successful Digital Arts Designer. My third daughter, Tajah Jireh will soon to become a famous Fashion Designer, 3 years from now.  And my son, Picardo Leo, who is now in Secondary Schoool wanted to become the most wanted Architect one day.

I sounded so positive!  But that is most of mothers wished  for their children, aren’t we all?

Sad? Yes, there is a little sadness in a way that my marriage for 12 years did not work to  last.  But ending it, is the best thing to do and very smart move and I never and I won’t ever regret it.  I have the rest of my life now to look forward to and so I must make the most of it and feel thankful to my God in every moment as possible and ask His guidance and wisdom on how I take charge of my life and make a difference.

I believe that everytihnig happens for a reason.  I have a full life and I take these life challenges in a positive outlook. I move on with my life. I keep adjusting to needs and keeping all vital areas of my life in balance. I will continue to passionately pursue my mission or goal and I will never ever quit.

Life goes on and a new chapter begins. :)

 

Last week November 30… My kids and I went to go house hunting.  And we wished to get and own a Victorian kind of house in this beautiful Village and Resort Community to live by one day :)

When sleep finds me sleeping like an angel….My Moments2 My Moments3

My work during Ramadan is in the night.  From 9pm to 2am :(
So when I come home, it’s hard to sleep and once finally I fell asleep…  I sleep real deep and it’s hard again to wake up…  Yay!  I would wake up forcing myself to get up.  And you bet my day is very short :( and so I missed going to Gym ( an excuse actually, hahaha) But the thing is I like it better to go to gym in the morning than to do it in the afternoon.

Anyways, it will be over soon and I look forward for my one week holiday :)

Shake, Rattle & Roll

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 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…

Music Passion Update: Spring Has Come Apace And It’s Here… It Promises New Growth… Believe In It, Because You Can Never Hold It Back!

 

Our Music Passion for the month of March is the word “Spring”
And my offer to you is:

You Can Never Hold Back Spring by Tom Waits

 

 

And here are the entries…  Click each of my contributors’ (“says”) and enjoy listening to their Spring Music Passion :) 

 

Spring is Here – Yeah…!

a Sisbro Studio Production

 

 

I’ve chosen to celebrate with a rumbustious late medieval – early renaissance song, “Ecco la Primavera” (Spring has come apace) by the Italian composer Francesco Landini,
performed here by the hungarian multi-instrumentalist Arany Zoltán.

Spring Has Come Apace

 

 

Spring is coming and it promises new growth among established glories blooming once more. As this month’s entry on Music Passion must include spring in either the title or lyric, I chose “Wild Is The Wind” because it serves a double purpose. The song is a soundtrack made for a life-long, passionate love affair. and serves the purpose of this posts main content quite admirably. Last month David bowie released a video (see below) from his first album in 10 years. This month the entire thing is available on Itunes and is due out in stores shortly. But that’s not all. Also opening in London on March 23rd at the Victoria and Albert Museum is the the first international retrospective of the extraordinary career of David Bowie.

Wild Is The Wind

 

This month the theme is spring – regardless of the fact that the lot of us in the southern hemisphere are moving in to autumn and winter ;-)

So, here’s my contribution to this month’s theme – hope you enjoy!

You Must Believe In Spring
