Preschool recognition day

Few days ago was the recognition day of my preschooler nephew.  His parents are very much excited because their son made it.  We are not expecting that the nephew will last this long because he is very lazy to write and doesn’t want to study.  I remember he told us that he will only write when the teacher is around.  A bit stubborn huh!?  But we are not forcing him to do what we want.  We let him do on his freewill.  We do not want him to think that schooling is a torture.  As much as possible we want him to have an enjoyable first year of school.

Anyways, nine months are over.  It’s recognition day, the day where students are waiting for.    The nephew was very happy receiving three ribbons.  He said that he is a good boy in class that is why teacher is giving him ribbons.  I must say that the nephew has lots of improvements.  He can recognize colors, count numbers, recognize letters and can draw.  Also, he gain friends at school.  Congratulations to my nephew.  It’s a long way to go, I do hope that you will do better in the upcoming years of studying.  Your parents are proud of you!

I and my sister was having our girly talk few days ago.  Though we always see each other because we are neighbor, still there are lots of things to talk about.  She talked about her life at her work place, her students, her married life, and more.  Me on the other hand, talk about my life at home, the kids of my brother, father and things at home.  I am not complaining like I used to do because I have accepted that 50% of my life evolves at home.  I am fine with it, but somehow I feel the need to have at least a little changes, or new environment that would my brain more active.lol

After hearing my story, the sister suggested that I should take second course or take a civil service examination so I can apply for a job in the government.  The second course that my sister suggested is Education like her.  However, I do not see myself being a teacher.  I mean, I do not have the confidence that she has.  Even though the sister told me that I can do it, still I am hesitant.  I am considering the second option but not final yet.  I guess I have to weigh first of which of the two has better opportunity.  Either way, I am offering it to the Lord.  I hope and pray that I will pushed through any of the two, if not, then I will just be contented of what is in front of me.

If I were to ask you, what do you think is the best option?

My body is aching. This is what I told my sister especially my back. I am having a hard time when I get up every morning. Every time I got up in the morning, the first word that I utter is ‘ouch’. This is because my back and waist are really painful. I asked my sister to go with me to the doctor because I need a check-up badly for cannot bear the pain. But the sister suggested having full body massage instead of going to the doctor. The body pain that I have is because of too much hard work at home, and less rest. And I guess the sister is right.

We have search for a massage parlor already, but haven’t been there yet. I want my sister to go with me; however, she is too busy with work.   I will have to wait till she has free time. I am glad that my father has a friend who is doing a home service massage. I do not need to go to the parlor anymore. I made an appointment already because I need full body massage as soon as possible. I get the full body massage two days ago. The massage is really painful, but it feels really good after that. No more pain in the morning and no more ouch so far.

I like to travel but after the bombing incident few months ago in some part of the country, I got scared. I always pray to God to guide me and keep me safe always even if it is a short travel. I have experienced bombing incident before and it took me almost a month to recover. I am shocked and cannot sleep straight at night because when I close my eyes, the flash the bomb that explodes distracts me. We do not know what is ahead of us, and bad people are just around the corner, so it is best to always pray.

Sometimes in our life we forget to offer prayers to God. We forget to talk to him and give some of our time to him because we get busy with our job, life, and earthly doings. We only remember Him when we encounter trials, difficulties, troubles, emergency and the likes. The worse is, we are complaining why it is happening to us. And why He let these things happens to us, the questions that only we can find answer and solutions. We should remember that God is our refuge; He is the source of everything. We should offer to him everything that we do so everything will fall into places. When bad things happen to us, let us not lose focus, because He only wants us to wake up and remember Him.
