Treasured Award

Got this wonderful award from my friend Eds Thanks sis!
Let me share this Irish Blessings’ friendship proverb:
“May there always be work for your hands to do, may your purse always hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine on your windowpane, may a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you, may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.” Now I'm tagging this to Cacai , Meryl , Beth , Dez

Daddy Moments

First daddy moment: at the hospital with Macoy, hours after being born
About 3 years later: A father-son talk, or more like a kiddie interview. You know how 3-yr olds are, they never run out of questions
And this is probably the most special moment for my two boys, playing golf.

Weekend Fishing

This is my hubby and my BIL with my two nephews. We spent the weekend fishing at my sister's backyard. They have a pond and we fished it out before it dry out. The weather's hot for several days and half of the pond already dried out. Which was also good because my husband made it into a personal golf course. The TILAPIAs we caught weighed 3/4 kilos each. Those were served for dinner. Yum Yum!

Heavenly Art

God is truly the best artist, and this shows just that. I took this picture while my husband and I were strolling in the car. It's just amazing to watch so I quickly grabbed my phone and started taking pics. I see the sky as a canvass for the big man upstairs to paint on. It's like a reminder that He's there watching over us every single day. That's why we never see the sky exactly the same as it was yesterday. Now that's a comforting feeling.

My Little Sister

I would like to share a story which is very close to my heart. It's about my half sister and I haven't seen her for several years now. While I was tinkering my face book account, I saw my half sister in that page. She left the Philippines when she was just 8 years old. We had a chance to be with her when she visited about 5 years ago and she looked really beautiful. I'm so happy to see her. I remembered when she was still a little girl, me and my sisters would take her to our house, it's because we lived in different houses, and we'd keep her in our room without our mother knowing she's there. Those were the days I really won't forget. We didn't have constant communication since she left for the States, now this is my chance to talk to her or send her emails. I tried to call her once but there was no response. The next day I opened up my email, praying that she's still online. I was surprised to see an answer from her. Then I started viewing her album. I was amazed and happy because my little sister has grown to be a very beautiful woman. We really love this kid, she is our little sister with a special place in our heart.

Got this tag from Demcy. Thank you so much my dear friend for including me in the tag ^_^. I really appreciate it ^_^.
Why should the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger? . * Thumb represents your Parents. * Second (Index) finger represents your Siblings. * Middle finger represents your-Self. * Fourth (Ring) finger represents your Life Partner. & the . . . * Last (Little) finger represents your children. Firstly, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together - back to back.
Secondly, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb - tip to tip. (As shown in the figure below:
Now, try to separate your thumbs (representing the parents)..., they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you lifelong, and have to leave you sooner or later. Please join your thumbs as before and separate your Index fingers (representing siblings)...., they will also open, because your brothers and sisters will have their own families and will have to lead their own separate lives. Now join the Index fingers and separate your Little fingers (representing your children)...., they will open too, because the children also will get married and settle down on their own some day. Finally, join your Little fingers, and try to separate your Ring fingers (representing your spouse). You will be surprised to see that you just CANNOT..... because Husband & Wife have to remain together all their lives - through thick and thin!! Please try this out and pass............. ISN'T THIS A LOVELY THEORY?
Now, I want to share this tag to all my friends who are already married. Feel free to grab this one Eds, Sharque , aterhea, Kurdapya
