Finally!

19/11/2015

 

It was a roller-coaster day. I had to make a decision which had been disturbing me. Once the decision was made, I experienced a mini upheaval of emotions before settling down and being focused. So glad I finally managed to do so!

The best part was going home, feeling relieved and not drained! Despite leaving the office late, I was energised. In fact, I felt fresh and got to put up my Christmas tree with Arrow #3. Finally!

Chillax

28/10/2015

Learned a new word! Chill and relax put together, becomes Chillax!

 

Hubby had a special gift for his birthday – a coupon for two to have a full body massage. Fantastic!

I am the one who likes the massage more, but this promised to be one that he might enjoy too. The only drawback was that a three-day notice was needed. Days went by and it became weeks. We still hadnt gone!

Then one day, on the spur of the moment (otherwise known as having a long full and shoulder aching day) he called the place and asked if they had an opening.

They did!

And off we went.

This was the first step – having a foot soak of five minutes and then having the foot dried.

Finally!

30/05/2015

I have been incapacitated for weeks! No, make that months! Unable to access this site due to no fault of my own – the hard disk died.

Worse, when it died and I sent it in for fixing, the people there did not send my order request off so I had to wait even longer to have the parts delivered for my computer. I had to really bite my tongue when I found out! How can that possibly happen to a reputable and well-established company. Worse, it was the manager himself who made this mistake. What an omission! It was quite depressing to say the least…

I can hear you say that I should have an alternative access…! Too late…  Lesson learned!

Anyway, I am B-A-C-K! And raring to go!

Taking Turns

01/03/2015

First the older one fall ill. It’s confirmed – he has dengue fever. Off I rush to go and nurse him for a few days. He is so weak that when the platelets begin to rise, I bring him back home to recover. He has lost so much weight. Initially he didn’t even have energy to drink, and he lost his appetite. Thankful that he is now recovered though he is still below his weight before he fell ill.IMG_4316

Not long after, the second one comes home for holidays, and on the second day, he cuts himself while playing frisbee on the beach. Three stitches later, he has to slow right down, even use crutches a for a few days, and has to have Momma nurse him in a different way – daily dressings!

Wow what an eventful time my two Arrows have had! Momma has been quite stretched too. But thankfully, all’s well that ends well.

SURPRISES!!!

08/01/2015

For the first one, they let me talk as they cleared the table. We were in a restaurant and had had a lovely meal. I happily chatted away and then a cake appeared.

I said, “Wow, what’s this?”

Brother-in-law says, “Dessert”.

“Oh,” I said. I was expecting fruits as usual.

Then I looked closer and saw the candles and the wordings.

IMG_3941_2Boy, did I get caught out!

A few days later, I got back to work. I had been traveling for my actual birthday. Whilst I had been on leave, three people celebrated their birthdays in my office. Fancy that! Two are members of the small team we have, and one was dropping by the office. What timing!

 

Anyway, while away, they sent me a photo to say that the white cake below on the left was my birthday cake which they were eating in my absence. Hah!

When I got back, I got stuck into my work, trying hard to clear my table. Suddenly there is movement at the doorway and the lights go out. Haha! They tried to surprise me! This time, with the cake on the right! Amazing colours and taste!

What joy to be blessed twice this year! Feeling loved…..

Rainy Weather Havoc

10/11/2014

It’s been pouring cats and dogs and more. They don’t call this place the land below the wind for nothing. This part of the country often gets the tail ends of the typhoons which onslaught the Philippines.

Sometimes we get bad landslides, like this one. This time round has been particularly bad – there are many landslides happening. Thankfully no lives have been reported lost.
IMG_9615We cannot even begin to imagine what it must be like across the Sulu Sea. I have some friends there. I hope they are well.

 

Answered Though Unspoken

12/06/2014

It was an unspoken desire. Call it a prayer but it was more a desire. I was feeling peckish that day. Surprisingly hungry. But I didn’t say anything because I figured I ought to just concentrate on my work and have my usual cereal lunch later.

Lo and behold, out of the blue, suddenly someone sends this!

It was hot. It was fresh. It was filling. It was tasty.

So thankful!

 

 

Another Unexpected Visitor

24/05/2014

It just lay there, as if stunned, near the window. I thought perhaps it had hit the glass and had winded itself. It must have flown into the house accidentally and was trying to make its way out.

So I picked it up and took it outside, intending to let it go.
IMG_5608It looked at me with its sad eyes.

Then it closed its eyes!

I tried to wake it up. There were no apparent injuries and it didn’t wince at anything I touched.

It was indeed a sad moment when despite my attempts, it refused to be revived.

I left it in a flower pot nearby. Thinking perhaps it would fly away by itself later.

Alas, when I came back, it had indeed left the pot, but only because my helper had taken it away….

 

Crown of Glory

18/05/2014

 

Last week I decided to make use of some of these crowns to give away. But before I did so, I added a Bible verse and a my trademark butterfly. Then placed each into a marked envelope and had a great time giving them away.

I gave them to Moms. “New” Moms. Moms who asked me to be a spiritual Mom to them, and a spiritual GranMom to their babies. (I know, right? So sweet of them!) IMG_6947The verse that I felt led to share with them? A verse which was significant for me personally. A verse which leapt out at me one day as I was reading. A verse which seemed apt for these lovely ladies.

You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand,
    a royal diadem in the hand of your God.” 

Isaiah 62:3

Yes, they were blessed. They really liked it. Some allowed their children to play with them…. which was, in part, why I chose children sized crowns….

Beautiful Visitor

It just sat there. Waiting for me to pick it up. It didn’t seem to mind my doing so. Almost didn’t want to leave. Strange behaviour. Seemed content to linger and stay. IMG_6744I had just been mulling about butterflies the day before. They are special to me. Amazed to see one come by.

Thankful for this special experience. Didn’t know it would be possible to do this in my own garden!
