My Mama's birthday

Image
It's my mama’s birthday today and if she was alive she would be 73 years old. I missed her so much very much. I know I will grow old wondering what if she was still here what we gonna be doing together, if she likes to come here in US or she would stay in the Philippines for her grandkids. Then I would think she would have a good life ahead because I will pamper her much and let her vacation to places she wants to go. Me and hubby was talking about it we just wished she was still alive. But the fact is that she isn’t and that makes my heart ache and long for her. I might be in age but still I feel the same thing as ever before she left us like a baby longing for a mothers loved and touched. Happy Birthday Ma!! Missed you so much and love you so much!

A short story to everyone:

A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"
"Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.…

A tremendous weekend...

Image
Hello friends I am so back here after a very tremendous event this weekend. First of all last
April 23~~Thursday...was my loving husband's nth birthday!! I asked him the day before his birthday if I would prepare dinner or what. He told me not to prepare or cook anything or buy anything, he just wants us to have dinner at Blind Fish restaurant. So I told his eldest daughter to contact everybody and just meet at the restaurant at 5:oopm. At 5:00pm sharp we arrived at the restaurant and I could see he was so ecstatic all his children came with their wife/husband, his bestfriend/cousin who has a parkinson disease came with his wife too, and his one and the last Uncle came with his wife and their son with his Korean wife came too. Over all there were 25 people came and he was so happy about it. I am so thankful for all the blessings, good health (which is very important) that God showered to my husband. We retire that night with a simple prayer and a smile to our face.

A Wonderful Wife I am, Will Become a Mom Soon! 
Got this wonderful tag from Madz a Bol-anon like me. Madz, message me that I have a tag so I immediately grab it because I like the tag. The tag is about being a wife and a mother or soon to be mother. I can be a very good wife but I doubt it if I can be a soon to be a mother. For the fact that I am beyond my age but I still could see myself as a mother to my nieces and nephew. So I think I have the right to answer the parenting style because even if I am here in USA I see to it that my nieces and nephew are in their best behavior or else.... And besides before I also dream of how I am going to discipline my kids (if I have one) we also talked about it with my husband and I even found out that I am the one who is a disciplinarian but cool char!!

Feast of Divine Mercy

Image
It's one week after Easter Sunday and for the Catholics today is the Feast of Jesus Divine Mercy to all of us HIS children.
This week, the whole of Christendom once again commemorates our Lord Jesus Christ’s passion, death and resurrection. It is a time to reflect over how we have lived our lives as Christians and how we have followed the example set by Jesus. It is likewise a perfect time to repent for our sins, return to the Lord, and be blessed with His overflowing love and eternal mercy. The Sunday following Easter Sunday is also a fitting time to recall how merciful the Lord Jesus is despite our sinfulness, as we celebrate the Feast of the Divine Mercy.
The Feast of the Divine Mercy was established by the late Pope John Paul II (who coincidentally died on the vigil of the Divine Mercy Sunday in 2005) on April 30, 2000 on the occasion of Blessed Sister Faustina’s canonization. The Feast is dedicated to the Devotion to the Divine Mercy and is celebrated on the first Sunday follo…

Lunch Box

Image
I was inspired to share my experienced about lunch box after I read Clarissa entry on her blog. My experienced happened 3 years ago when my step-daughter and I went to a school for a caregiver course. I was so na├»ve and a first timer so the first day of school I woke up early and prepare my BAON. I cooked rice and menudo for my lunch and brought water for me too. Talagang excited na excited ako ang gara pa nama nang lunch box ko rubber maid. My step-daughter picked me up and off we go to the school. Our lunch time came I was hungry at the same time excited because I am going to ate my rice and menudo. But to my surprised walang tao sa room na dapat doon magkainan, nobody brought their lunch or baon. They all went out to buy their lunch at Taco bell, McDonald, Wendys et all. I didn’t knew what to do honestly my step-daughter who also didn’t brought anything told me that we might as well buy our lunch at the nearest fast food. I told her I have my baon with me I have to eat it here b…

Sexting...

Image
I first heard this word while listening to my favorite radio station the Avemariaradio.net . I was like what is that word all about? Well the word sexting comes from two words from sex + texting = sexting. I looked at it in the dictionary the word doesn’t exist yet. Upon listening to the radio anchor it is about girls who are of course minor age not even a teenager yet but has a cell phone with camera took picture of their naked body and send it to their boyfriend or friends. So the sexting was conceived!!! It was like child porn but it was not taken by another person but the girl itself. The bad and the saddest part is that the state of Vermont is thinking of making it as legal? After I heard that from the radio anchor I was like WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE PEOPLE!! I could think of my two little nieces back in the Philippines, yes they are deprived of material things like fancy toys or cellphone but for me they are in the right place. Napag-isip2x ko lang the parents here in America is …

Happy Easter!!

Last night hubby and I went to attend the Easter Vigil at St Anne Catholic Church. The mass started at 8pm and ended around 10pm. Today, I get up at about 8am took a shower and started to cook. Oh yeah, hubby wants to have an Easter celebration at home just like what happened last Thanksgiving day, so it is my first time to cooked huge turkey last Thanksgiving and now a huge chunk of ham. But I made it through....I cooked some dish that is pretty common to american palate and I made pancit behon and my specialty for the day is seafood with white sauce. The pictures are in my other blog Manangs Kusina. Got to go I need to chill out...HAPPY EASTER TO EVERYONE!!

Blood letting...

Hubby and I attended the mass yesterday Good Friday, the mass was very solemn and when we are in the part of the Venerating the Cross, the priest told the parishioners to line up jeez I was standing waiting in line my tears just run down my cheeks I get so carried away. I am basically a sentimental person, I remember my mom told me that I am a “kapayason”. Remember how a papaya tree when pricked, the sap automatically run down just so easy? And that is me, a light drama or a heavy drama as long as there is this heavy nice dramatic dialogue I guarantee to anyone I am already crying. What happened at the church was a mixed emotion, I missed my pamangkins, brother and sister, I missed my parents, I am happy that hubby and me attended the mass, and I am so thankful of everything. After the mass, at the church function hall there was this Red Cross Blood donation. I told my hubby I wanted to donate my blood and it is not new to me I donate blood from time to time when I was in the Philip…

Good Friday: By His wounds we are healed

Image
Sentenced to die on the cross, Jesus was made to suffer the worst type of punishment reserved only for the worst type of criminals.

Prior to His crucifixion, Jesus was scourged, beaten with rods, and a crown of thorns pressed into His skull. Aside from the extreme physical pain He endured, Jesus must have felt so alone seeing Himself abandoned on the cross by almost all His apostles, save for His mother and three women, along with John. After a few hours of agonizing emotional and physical pain amid the jeers and insults of those who came to witness His humiliation, Jesus expired.

Pilate had publicly heralded Jesus “King of the Jews’’ no doubt to irritate and annoy the chief priests and Pharisees. Ironically, it was this very title “awarded’’ by Pilate to Jesus that gave Him and the Romans a reason to consider Jesus a threat. Jesus had answered, “My kingdom does not belong to this world …’’ So Pilate said to Him, “Then You are a King?’’ Jesus answered, “You say I am a King …’’ (Jn 18:36…

Maundy Thursday

Image
Holy Thursday is the most complex and profound of all religious observances, save only for the Easter Vigil. It celebrates Christ’s institution of the Holy Eucharist and the Sacerdotal Priesthood and commemorates Christ’s never-ending love for His disciples, most of whom would desert, betray, or deny Him a few hours after that gathering.

In His Last Supper, a celebration of Passover, Jesus is the self-offered Passover Victim, and every ordained priest to this day presents this same sacrifice, by Christ’s authority and command, in exactly the same way: “Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying. ‘This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, ‘This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.’ ’’ (Luke 22:19-20)

For many centuries, the Last Supper has inspired great works of art and literature such as Leonardo da Vinci’s popular Last…

More birthday cake!

Image
This morning my hubby singsong to me this words "how's my 43 wife doing"and the way he sings it makes me laugh and laugh it was so funny I enjoyed it. I told him I am 43 but feeling young and gorgeous!! Nothing change really it is only a number though I just feel so good about myself that never I have felt this way when I was in my 20's and 30's.


As always every Tuesday is our family brunch. We arrived a little bit late since we had to picked up my SIL and her husband at their house. It was snowing so hard it is like winter and not spring jeez I don't like to think that my birthday was snowing so hard, a year ago I was in the Philippines on my birthday enjoying the summer there. We arrived at the restaurant Deb, Tim, Fran, were there already, though not everybody are present because of the weather but still everything turns out fine I received some cards with gift card inside and this live plants called Campanula, a donut with 3 candles on top. It is so cute a…

April 6, Monday:Yeheyy today is my 43rd birthday and it's my US citizenship interview in Detroit. Thankfully I passed the interview yohooo! This morning hubby sing to me a Happy Birthday song inside the Greektown casino-hotel.

April 5, Sunday:

Sunday was Palm sunday, after hubby and I attended the mass we immediately headed home since I am going to attend a baby shower for my step-granddaughter at a church function hall. It was raining already but the outcome of the party was really good. People are still coming inspite of the heavy downpour of rain and more relatives where there too. Around 5:00 pm I went home my step-sons called us that they are going to have an early Easter dinner since next Sunday they are going to New Jersey. So off we go and it was in that dinner that hubby was told and my SIL also called that we'd better go down to Detroit that night since a snow storm is coming and they don't want us to be stucked in I-75 or meet an accident on the way to the INS in …

April showers bring May flowers...

April shower brings May flowers!!! Yohoo rain is here, it rained the whole night and today I guess it will rain the whole day too. I just hope that it would not get too cold because if it happen snow will follow and I don't need snow. I can't wait to see flowers around and green grassess and my vegetable garden.

Yesterday, hubby and I went shopping at the mall. I first went to a dollar store to buy a $1 bag and I found out that they have a .97cents cute baby books so I bought 5 of them. My step-granddaughter specified in her baby shower invitation that instead of giving a baby shower card it is better to give 1 book for the baby, and I found it very cool. Because usually after reading the card some will throw it away or keep it and never to be read again. But a book it will wait until the baby start to read. AFter dollar store I went to Kohls and found a very good discounted clothing for babies. I was drawn to the girls stuff they are just very cute and pretty but I have to loo…

Anticipation...

Image
Yesterday, I recieved this package from DXN Reishi coffee through UPS. I was so excited because I ordered it last week and it takes them at least 5 days to arrived, well I guess because the shipment fee is not that expensive though. Anyway, when hubby opened it up I found out that the RG/GL capsules which I ordered was not inside. Hubby asked me if I ordered it I said yes because it is right there in the reciept or invoice. I immediately called their office and thankfully the one who answered me is so nice enough you don't want your blood to boil hehe. She asked me some information that I could find in the invoice and she told me she is going to call me the next day to confirm. The next day, I recieved a call from her and she said that they are going to mail the RG/GL capsules that I ordered. So everything was settled then and I hope today it will come since that is our lifeline to a good healthy body.
Yesterday, again I recieved the cellphone that I ordered online through FEDex g…
