The wedding preparation

As part of the Filipino tradition when a man wishes to marry his girlfriend, the first thing he should do is to visit the family of the girl and ask permission from the parents of the girl.  And that is what we are going to do this Sunday because my brother wants to settle down and marry his girlfriend.  They have been in a relationship for three years and living under one roof for two years now.  We are so glad that finally, they decided to tie the knot.  The girl, my soon to be sister-in-law is two months pregnant.  It is a blessing because they are waiting for this moment before decided to get married.

This Sunday also we will plan for the wedding and prepare what is need to be done for their big day.  This moment happens one in their life, so as much as possible we want to make it extra special and memorable.  Though we are not into an extravagant wedding, just a simple one that fits the bride and groom.  I also extend my help to my brother, I am not a wedding planner and don’t know much but I can search online to get an idea.    I am so excited for them.  Congratulations in advance to my brother and future sister-in-law.

Finished with honors

One of the most important parts in the life of a student is to be recognized for the job well done after a year of studying and going to school.  This is the much-awaited event of their life.  All the sacrifices of the students and parents are paid off because of the academic awards and merits of their children receives on the recognition day and graduation day.  It is indeed the happiest day of their lives.  To be able to finish the school year and graduate is the best gift that we could give to our parents but with awards and merits is the sweetest.  They sacrifices and difficulties will surely vanish.

This is what I saw in my brother’s eyes because his two daughters finished with honors during their recognition and graduation day.  His kids always make him proud since kindergarten.  They always make their parents happy and I am so proud of my nieces and nephews.  Good job kids.  It will be a long and rough road ahead of you but I am pretty sure you will go a long way because you have the determination to go farther and have dreams to become successful one day.  Continue what you are doing kids and always pray to God.  Congratulations again!

Good to see her smiling again

Every day my life becomes lighter because of my four months old niece.  Seeing her smile brings more life to me always.  I do not feel tired after doing the household chores because of my bubbly niece.  I am her temporary nanny while her parents are still looking for a nanny.  While I am her nanny, I spend more time with her, kissing and hugging her.  Savor every moment with my niece and taking lots of pictures.  I always miss the niece’s contagious smile.  Last week, the niece is not feeling well.  I so missed her smile I must say.

She has a fever for four days.  We almost brought her to her pediatrician to check her up because we are so worried that it is dengue fever.  I am glad that her fever subsides after five days.  But sad because the niece’s body is full or rashes.  She keeps on crying maybe because she felt very itchy.  The rashes give the niece a hard time.  Her mother (my sister) give her antihistamine.  The niece feels better now.  The rashes are gone and she is back to being a bubbly kid.  I can see her pretty smile now.  I really missed it.  Thank God that the niece is okay now.  It is really good to see her smiling again.
