Love your lung

My brothers and father are smoker back then. Each day of their lives, we always told them to stop smoking for our own good because even if we do not smoke, still we are affected for possible lung problems because we smell the smoke from their cigarettes. Years have passed my older brother stops smoking first. It was SIL who persuaded the older brother to quit smoking for their health especially the kids. The father stops smoking after his kidney operations. And the second older brother quit smoking after hospitalized due to difficulty in breathing. Too bad they have to experience these before realizing to stop smoking.

Our lung is one of the most important parts in our body. We should take good care of it if we want to live a longer life and illness free. Smoking is one thing that will destroy our lungs. Not only the smokers can be affected and also the secondary smokers. It is sad to know that others are not considered to others. They smoke anywhere they want and like and do not matter if they are in the middle of many people. I do hope that they will realized soon that smoking is not helping them but instead taking years of their life here on earth. Let us take good care of our lungs. To smokers, it is not too late to stop smoking be healthy.

When we say the word stress, it is more applicable to women especially to the mothers and the working mothers. They are more stress because they are loaded with lots of worries and pressured at work and at home. I can say it is true looking at my sister who is a mother and as a teacher as her job. She does not have enough time with her kids when she got home because she is very tired. Also, does not have time to be alone to re-charge and regain the energy she has lost. She is having a hard time of what to prioritize and what to come first. May it be herself, her kids or her job?

A mother who is a homemaker and an employee at the same time is a very challenging role. The stress they get at home and at work make them feel so exhausted. Since it is the life they choose, the best way that the mothers should do is to balance everything.  It needs to balance everything to cope up with the daily stress they are facing. No matter how busy they/you are, you should find few minutes or hours in a day to take care of yourselves. Busy mothers/women needs alone time for herself to recharge. Finding that moment to quiet sitting and breathing is a big help to recharge and stress-free.

The nephew will turn four in two months and he is still drinking his milk through feeding bottle. The sister wanted him to start drinking his milk using the glass but the nephew refuses. He will only cry very loudly and won’t drink it unless we transferred the milk in the feeding bottle. His reason is that, why he can’t drink in the feeding bottle while his brother can? Funny isn’t it? We let him win this time to stop him from crying because his scream so loudly and it is so annoying. That is how smart the nephew is. He has reason for everything. I bet he will be a great debater when he grows older.lol

Even though we let him win most of the time, we are still trying to make him understand and explain to him that he is growing bigger, becoming an older brother and an older brother doesn’t drink milk in the feeding bottle. It would be a difficult task to make him understand what we are saying at his age, however, we will probably use the easy way that he would understand what we are saying. Since I spend more time with him since his parents are both working, I will be the one doing the task. I hope my patience is enough not to get angry when he cries, screaming and yelling protesting if I give his milk in the glass. Good luck to me.

The brother accepted the job

The brother is happy and contented with his job here in our village. He drives a public vehicle (motorcycle) in our village to the highway. Aside from the driving job, he also accepts electrical, constructions and welding jobs. His earnings are enough for him. He can save some and helps the family financially. But because there are lots of motorcycles running in our village recently, the earning becomes little. This is the reason the brother is thinking of finding a new job. He cannot focus on the constructions job because heavy work is not good for his health. Plus electrical and welding jobs are not permanent. He cannot depend on these jobs.

The prayer of the brother of finding a new job is answered because his former co-worker is hiring him. He was hired to do electrical job in another city. It is one hour and half travel from our city. The offer is good that is why the brother accepted the job right away. He will be working in a company manages by his classmate in college and he will be working with his close friends. The brother will be staying there and will be backing home on the weekends. I pray that the brother will be happy with his job now and I pray that God will always guide and protect him.
