Ever since my birthday last month, everyday seems to be a positive, cheerful day. Add to that the Mother’s Day love I got from online friends and especially from my boys. I don’t know… everything just seems right. Happy! Loved! Giddy!
Yes, we’re entering the Terrific Two’s and tantrums have been happening quite often, but as Zoren grows, so does my heart. It feels like it’s going to burst with so much happiness every time Z completes “Itsy Bitsy Spider” or when he stacks his blocks and cups, or laugh even when he’s sleeping. Really, this small creature gives me my biggest smile.
I’m also proud of my husband. Yes, I’m his number 1 fan and cheerleader! He’s got a new role to do, he’s learning and up to the task. He may be busy most of the time but whenever the three of us are together, he makes sure that we feel that we are his top priority.
As for me, I’ve decided to really focus on this blog. I’m determined to put quality content that will be of help to young moms out there (after my 5 lives in Candy Crush, hehehe). I enjoy learning and sharing my lessons here. I’m also taking care of myself more now, back to putting make up, shopping for nice clothes, in short, because I feel good inside, I’m translating it into the outside!
Spread the happiness! Do share what’s making you feel giddy!
If this was how it was 40+ stories above the ground, then imagine the damage the monsoon rains was causing to the people in low-lying areas and those living near creeks and rivers?! Pictures on TV and Facebook show the damage non-stop raining has caused, and my heart is crushed every time. Now that I’m a mommy, I feel for the babies trapped in flooded homes and struggling in the evacuation centers. I just can’t believe that a mayor said that floods are a “natural” occurrence in some of these areas. How can that be? And why would we let people settle in places where floods are considered to be “natural”?
But, it is in these distressing times that the true meaning of “bayanihan” is shown. I admire the courage of the Philippine Navy, Army, Coast Guard who are doing the best they can to help those who are stranded on the roofs of their houses. Sadly, some do not want to be rescued in fear that their homes will be washed away by robbers. Media people should also be commended for their no-fear take on reporting the news, immersing themselves in flood waters even. I do hope they take precautions in doing so.
We ask everyone all over the world to please PRAY FOR THE PHILIPPINES! The rains may have stopped but the bigger problem still exists. Let’s pray that the distraught be blessed with a lot more strength and positiveness as they rebuild their life back. Let’s pray for the government officials that they make sound decision about what to do next in order to avoid calamities like this. Let’s pray for the children who are the true victims in this unfortunate situation.
The monsoon rain is not the problem. It’s the poor urban planning and improper waste disposal that caused the flooding. Let’s all do our part in educating our children to reduce, reuse and recycle for a greener future.
