About Me

My photo
I created this blog so that I can share my opinions, my favorite topics, my life and my journey through life when I was a child, teenager, a single woman, in love, as a mama, and now a widow. But despite everything, Life MUST go on, and let's stay surviving it, with God's grace. :)

Most emotional and touchy performance on X Factor (Emmanuel)

A touching story of two boys born in the middle of a war zone in Iraq. Both boys were adopted by an Australian woman. A hero, an angel. God bless people like her who have so much love to give.

Asthma Attacks

My personal experience for my son. When it is the season that triggers asthma, like beginning of another season, I control his chicken, dairy and food with preservative intakes. I give him more calamansi juice and as much as possible, let him stay in an environment that is not too hot nor not too cold. Airconditioning units are a great help during summer. When its the rainy season, I try to keep him warm by closing some windows. Hope this article helps most of you mothers! Stay healthy. My son is 17 years old now, and I think he outgrew his mild asthma. Though he still uses his puffs maybe once a year now...

How Is Asthma Treated and Controlled?

Asthma is a long-term disease that has no cure. The goal of asthma treatment is to control the disease. Good asthma control will:
  • Prevent chronic and troublesome symptoms, such as coughing and shortness of breath
  • Reduce your need for quick-relief medicines (see below)
  • Help you maintain good lung function
  • Let you maintain your normal activity level and sleep through the night
  • Prevent asthma attacks that could result in an emergency room visit or hospital stay

The day I met my husband (a widow's thought)

25 years ago today, May 2, I met a man that would change my life. Who gave me a better understanding of what unconditional love is, taught me how to survive (physically and financially) for the sake of my loved ones, gave me the positivity to keep me going while he is the one who is sick (so contradicting, don't you think?), and most of all, he gave me my only son. If I could only go inside my heart, I would, because he IS inside it....

Mother-Daughter (and Grandma too!) Bracelets

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.

What to do with your Burdens

I have been feeling so low lately. I have a burden which I usually share with my husband. But since he is gone, I have no one to share this with. I just cry alone at home, read and browse the internet, read all the inspirational words that I can find, and do my usual chores at home. Funny how my family and friends see that I am always okay. They say I handle my problems well. If they just know how I cry inside my room….

This afternoon, while still feeling depressed, I saw a post in my Google+ home page from Maria Pena. It says,

The Courage to Keep Going
Do you want to give up on your marriage, job, children, financial situation, or other personal struggle? We often feel tempted to quit when we’re in the middle of such difficult circumstances, but giving up is not consistent with who we are as followers of Jesus Christ. In this message, Dr. Stanley shares how the apostle Paul is a perfect example of someone who never gave up in spite of persistent difficulty and hardship.”

I felt as though a cold water was poured over me and woke me up. From this, I then went to Dr. Stanley’s radio messages and listened to one of his sermons about “burdens”. God really has his own ways of talking to His children. Sometimes, even if we knew that all must be surrendered to Him, and give Him our full Trust,

And this, is how I handle everything.

Search for His words. God uses someone or something to send a message to you. Open your heart and listen well… Be assured that ….. God Loves You!

The Name Lives On

This made me cry buckets! Never was I so touched by any song like this. I can relate well, with all the trials, happiness, life events, and all the things that my family has been through, He was always present, always beside me and not letting go of my hands. Enjoy and feel the message. Happy Sunday to everyone.

Taking much of my "me"-time

January is almost over and I haven't written anything here yet. I have been busy lately, since last month to be exact. with one of my past-time "therapeutic" interests. I've been watching youtube tutorials, reading, surfing the net on all things that interests me. Of course, that is, when I don't have work, which is almost 2 days in a week, more or less. I don't go out window shopping anymore because that also adds to my "extra" expenses. I tend to buy some things that are "second to priority". I just go out when I need, take note, "NEED" to buy some important things for the house or for my son's architecture materials. I just have to practice this way so I can save, save, save!

Anyway, this "therapeutic past-time" was my project last Christmas. I made them as my gift to all the girls in the family and to my friends. As it was my first time, I told them that if ever it breaks, I will replace it and it's under lifetime warranty. hehehe....I feel so happy in creating these designs that when I have designed it beautifully, I feel that I have given birth to a new baby. I know I still have a lot of improvement to make but I see to it that I learn new things, explore and create new designs. Some of you might be able to relate to what I am saying......

Here it is, my "babies" :)
