Ending for a new beginning

It is the first day of June and this means that half of the year is almost over.  We couldn't say we're in the beginning 'till something has ended.  This morning, I decided to have a baking activity with the kids to start the month. Of course they all loved the activity specially working with fondant.  May, the previous month, was a very busy month for all of us here.

Failure To Thrive and Anemia

One of things every mom would want to make for her child is to be sure that he's growing healthy. The hardest part of motherhood for me is when my children are sick especially when they are still so young.  Infants couldn't tell if something is painful or wrong with them.  We moms just feel when something isn't right with them. 

It is sweet to have a baby in the house.  They gave such joy and vibrant feeling in the home.  But I tell you they grow very fast, that at times we'd wish that they'll stay as babies that we can cuddle for longer more time.  In our case, hearing from the doctor that our baby isn't growing right made me so worried.  Every day I would pray to God for miracles to touch my baby's body so he'll thrive and grow as fast as he can.  What an irony!  This journey wasn't easy to accept. We've been through a lot of specialists to consult about his health to make his condition better.

A Letter To My Dear Friends

I have been working on our Bible Stories to be used in our DVBS. This time God gave me the theme about friendship. While studying the scriptures, I couldn't help but cry as I was reading the passages. This is not my first time to read the stories, but this time the message conveyed were so intense to me that I am moved to tears. There are a lot of Bible men and women who showed such love and loyalty to their friends no matter what. These are very remarkable examples of friendship that we all should learn and be like.

As I study the passages, I came to a point of realization where I found myself I wasn't that good friend who I thought I was. In my mind and in my heart I know I wanted myself to be the best friend one could ever have. Now, I have seen that I needed more effort to be a real good friend to all my friends.

Building Blocks Party

JC, my eldest son just celebrated his 7th Birthday.  Since last year he is asking us for a birthday party. We just had a huge celebration last February celebrating SJ's 3rd birthday where we also decided to have EJ's Dedication Day.  After seeing this party he was more decided to throw a big party for his own birthday.  I personally don't know if we could still make one for him.  But in the end I still said yes to him.  You may wonder how rich we are but I tell you, I tried my very best to make these celebrations in a budget.  All I need is to do is to be creative and put all personal efforts for all of these parties to happen.  We were able to host parties even in a tight budget because, I bake and design my own cakes, I don't need to hire tables chairs and catering services, I have my mom and some church mates who helps in cooking and clean-ups, I personally make all party decors and party giveaways.  Also to mention some generous friends who added the party necessities.

Old San Juan Hotel and Restaurant - San Juan, Batangas

I was fascinated to be at Old San Juan and see its huge improvement.  This was only a restaurant before and was also known for its spa services.  Now they're getting bigger that they have just opened their hotel which was launched in December 2014.
