Get well soon kids

Today is not a good day for us.  The three years old nephew and 13 years old niece has fever.  I keep on monitoring their temperature from time to time.  I was not able to take a nap and do my laundry because I have to watch the kids especially the nephew.  Fever scares me to death because of this dengue fever disease.  Dengue fever cases in our city is no joke.  The city government is already declaring a dengue fever outbreak.  Fever nowadays is scary that is why when any member of the family has fever, monitoring is important.

We have given the kids paracetamol for the fever, and vitamin C so they will regain strength.  Also give them small feeding.  It is really difficult seeing them sick.  Sometimes I wish that I have to power to transfer the illness to me because seeing them so weak and not energy at all is painful to me for I am used to see them laughing, playing, running around the house and fighting.  The niece took a half day class because she is not feeling well.  Her temperature jumped up to 40.2 and it is so alarming.  Now the nephew and the niece fever slows down.  I hope that they will get better soon.  God send your healing power to them. Amen!

Wedding bells this year

My older brother and his girlfriend visited us last Monday.  The brother usually message us if he is coming home.  But today we were surprised to see them early in the morning.  Well, I guess they intended to surprise us because we keep on asking him when will he come visit.  Yes, we missed the brother very much.  He seldom comes home because he is busy with his new job.  Instead of taking his day off, he chooses to work and the reason is he is planning to settle down this year.  Oh yes, after a year of in a relationship they finally decided to tie the knot.

I must say that the father is the happiest person on earth when the brother told him last Monday that they are planning to get married this year.  I remember, the father keeps on bugging them about the wedding.  Now his wishes is coming true.  My father is so excited of the good news, well, all of us are.  Finally the brother will take another step of his life.  I am so happy that the brother finds the girl of his dream.  He found the girl he wants to spend the rest of his life with and have family and the girl who accepts and love him for him.

Wedding bells are coming for brother and my future sister-in-law.  At this early, I want to extend my congratulations though the date is not yet finalized.  I pray that they will love each other and they will be blessed with little angels to complete their family.  God bless on your journey together.

Hope she will get better soon

The SIL was the happiest when she told us that she is two months pregnant.  She found out that she is pregnant on her birthday.  It is God’s birthday gift for her.  We are so happy for her and wish that she will have a healthy baby.  We we’re talking about her prenatal check up, which doctor she will go, things to buy for the baby, because we we’re so excited.  Nothing beats the excited knowing that you’re carrying a life in your womb/tummy.  It is a blessing indeed.  I am so happy for her too because I always bother her to have a baby girl since her first born is a boy.

When the SIL visited us, she told me first of the good news.  Maybe because I always told her to have a baby.  Unfortunately, the SIL experienced miscarriage.  She lost her baby.  She cried to me and I really felt the pain she is having right now.  She asked God why.  As her older sister, I tried my best to comfort her.  Make her understand that maybe this is not the right time.  Instead of being sad and blaming herself for not taking care of herself well, I told her that she should be happy because her baby would be the angel up above that would watch them and making sure that they are all safe.  She is still in pain now, I pray that she will recover soon and move on.  Always thought of the bright side of everything, and always count the blessings even if you are experiencing difficulties in life.  God bless you SIL and hope to see that bubbly smile in you again.  Love You!

Wanted to become a teacher

I remember when she was in grade school my niece says that she wanted to become a nurse.  She wants to help treating people in the hospital.  Also, told me that she wants to work abroad to help the family financially.  I am amazed because at early age she thinks of the future of her family.  And that is a good sign that the niece is being responsible and loving to her parents.  As the time, days, months, years passed by the niece’s dreams to become nurse is fading away.  She has no interest at all.  She told us that she wants to become a teacher like her mommy (her aunt).  She idolized her mommy (her aunt) that much.

Yesterday, was their career guidance program at school.  They were told to wear the prescribed clothes for the career they want to pursue and become.  And the niece chooses to become a teacher.  She said she wants to be like mommy.  Instead of treating sick people in the hospital, she likes to teach the future generation.  She wants to be part of their journey to success.  The niece has a point on that.  She thought of helping the future generation to become a better person and successful individual.  And that left me speechless.  Indeed the niece is growing so fast.  Her thoughts of the future and the dreams she wants to become someday makes me so proud of her.  I do hope that she will be able to reach her dreams, pursue the career she wants and become a successful person someday.  Way to go niece.  Don’t stop reaching your dreams, aim high and reach your goal in life.
