New Year, New Beginning

The year 2016 just bid goodbye.  It was an awesome year for all of us even though we have encountered lots of problems, trials and difficulties.  At some point in our life we wanted to give up and stop moving, but the determination to go on with life no matter how difficult it is, made all of us surpass the trials in life.  The year 2016 is a tough year to our family.  I can say that our faith, strength, and patience were tested.  Thanks to God for the strength and focus mind He has given to us.  We are able to find ways on how to embrace the trials and difficulties we faced.

The year 2017 just sits in.  New year and new beginning for all of us.  We welcome the year 2017 with a blast and praying that this year would be a blessed year for the family and to all the people in the world.  We just have to continue what we are doing and improve it for the better future.  As for myself, I am thinking of starting a new business (small one).  I am not getting any younger, I have to think of something fruitful for this year.  I will still do what I am doing and do the things that makes me happy.  I hope and pray that I start the new year with new beginning.  For better me and wiser me.  Amen!

Flu Shots Vaccination

It is exactly five years ago this month when my brother got sick and admitted to the hospital due to severe pneumonia.  It was a very sad trial that we have encounter.  We are glad that God is there to give us strength and courage to never lost faith and continue moving with life.  The doctor told us that the brother has lots of fluids in his lungs and needs to be removed for his safety.  But my father refuses to do it after hearing some advises from his friends.  The doctor advises us to do flu shots for my brother.

The first flu shots vaccination of my brother will protect him for five years.  And five years has passed, the brother has to do the same vaccination again.  I have to accompany him along with his wife so that next vaccination his wife knows where to go and how to make brother comfortable and at ease because he is scared of needles.  Yes, he is scared of needles at the age of 41.haha!  But it is funnier because the SIL is scared of needles too.  How can she make my brother feel comfortable, less scared and ease.LOL!  Anyways, the second vaccination went well.  The next vaccination will be on December of 2017.

Because I am busy

A month ago I already checked the Christmas decorations and the old Christmas tree.  I have to get it ready because I am planning to put up the Christmas tree after All Saints and All Souls day.  But I did not able to do it because my older sister gave birth last October 31, 2016.  I got so busy helping her because she does not have housekeeper.  I was the one attending her at the hospital and when we got home I am helping her with the kids and the chores at home.  She gave birth via C-section, so she has to avoid getting so tired.  As much as possible she needs to rest and do minimal movements at home.

Because I got so busy I forgot to put up our Christmas tree at home.  I did not notice it until my nephew and nieces asked me when will I put up the Christmas tree.  My goodness, no spirit of Christmas at home.  It is not too late though, I still have days to do it before Christmas.  I just have to find the perfect time to do it.  I do hope that I will be able to do it this week.  This Wednesday is National holiday, not so busy day for me because there is no class.  Hopefully our Christmas tree will be up this week.

Hope I make her feel better

In life we do make bad decisions, commit mistakes, failed, succeed, and many others.  These experiences is a good teacher because we learned from it.  We can use our bad experiences to do better.  Stand up and strive harder.  These are the things that makes life more challenging.  It is not easy I must say.  There are times that we want to give up and back out.  But giving up and backing up is not a good option either.  Instead of doing it, we have to challenge ourselves to continue the journey till we reach to our destination.  Which is to achieve our goals, dreams, and ambition in life.

These are the things that I shared to a friend who is seeking my advice.  She married young and have a son.  Her life is not easy, I know because marrying at a young is not a good decision, but as a friend I am just here to give my points of view based from what I have heard, read, watch and my experiences in life.  I am single but I know the difficulty of a married life.  Not all though.  *wink*  Anyways, since she is seeking my advice I give her my points of view, and possible solutions to her problems.  It is not easy though because I can feel her pain and struggle, but I see to it that I am able to eases the burden in her heart and mind.  I hope that I am able to make her feel better.  Also, hope that my advices gives her the peace of mind that married life is full of trials, ups and downs, misunderstanding, but at the end of the day communication is the key to make things smooth and a wonderful journey together.
