I am proud to say that for the first time in eight years of teaching, I accepted my current task without complaints 😀 I survived too in my daily challenges of teaching impulsive and headstrong adolescents.
Yes, I complain a lot. But this time I prefer silence for moaning gets me nowhere. Besides I only have less than 2 months to work like these. After that I will be a full-time mother. And the decision to give up teaching and be a full-time homemaker is the proudest and toughest thing I’ve made these days.
Most importantly, I’ve never been prouder in my life for having this little girl! She’s the best decision we’ve ever made.
It was a fun and perfect summer for me! Two months away from hassles and working was a great opportunity to be with my family and friends as well as a great chance to wander around the place I am missing for long. I’ve waited for the perfect time to spend great days with people I value much and it happened recently. I could not ask for more from God. He gave me more than what I have asked for: perfect health, supportive partner, healthy and graceful daughter, affectionate family and in-laws!
Perfect days for trekking, swimming and hiking offered me the best time and nature’s admirable sights…
Then my daughter and I got a trip to a famous beach in South-Eastern part of the Philippines. Much obliged to my sister-in-law’s family for the best accommodation and tour at their region’s famous beach resort. I hope to visit again one day and stay longer, discover more of what such beautiful place offers…
My relatives from distant cities had a chance to see my daughter when we visited them. It’s been a while that I haven’t visited some special people who have unconditionally helped me who I become today… I’m so glad to see my uncle and aunt adore my little girl so much… so grateful to God for sending these kind of people in my life!
I got to see some special friends too who always care about me and who were all smiles when I arrived at their place. I feel lucky to have such great and dependable people that I call friends. See you again and may the Almighty keep you capable and abundant.
Food played a big role of my happy vacation. There was never an occasion or gathering without food! I gained few pounds but it was fine with me. Filipinos love to gather and eat, eat, eat! 🙂 And now it’s time to seriously go on diet… again! 😀
Summer fun and quality time with my daughter made her shine! She got to stay in the Philippines for few months though. I had to leave dear one for a very logical reason. I’m missing you so much and I’ll see you again very soon my baby! I won’t be long… (>‿◠)✌
Baby and I had the grandest time to be with my family, nieces and nephews with lots of time partying, wandering and eating. Indeed, vacation time is family time. I wish it never ended but reality gets in the way so here I am now, back at work and back in blogosphere again.
So thankful that my little girl is growing healthy and well. She’s 6 months now and she grows vivacious! It’s easy to make her laugh and smile. Even strangers or nurses at the hospital where we had her immunization were pleased at her friendly manners.
On her 6th month birthday, I let her wore her new dress which liked very much. I bought it along with her baptismal white dress. I thought she’d feel discomfort since the material is not as soft as cotton cloth but I was wrong. The little princess seemed to make a curtsy and I took it as a ‘thank you, mom!’ 🙂
Her Aunt Theresa was so delighted when Sydnee mimic her for a selfie pose! This little girl really knows how to lift our spirits after a very tiring day. And we all love this photo! 🙂
I must have done something good that God rewarded me a sister who:
cares without condition;
understands without questions;
listens without doubt of my every word;
I must have forgotten to utter my thanks and praises to God
that He reminded me of being nice and kind, hence,
sent my sister as an example.
I wish you joy on Valentine’s Day, my sister, my angel! 😀
Family ranks top on my list of inspirations! Without my family, I would probably be lost focus in life…
This week I’m back for Weekly Photo Challenge. I was with the family… the reason for my long absence on WordPress blogging! 🙂
Thanks for your time.
