Me Wants A Baby Boy!

>> Wednesday, October 27, 2010

My little girl is now 2 years and 8 months old. The time is just right to have another baby. But because I am still at the beginning of my graduate course, we cannot have another one just yet. Hubby and I have agreed that we will have another baby after my graduate studies.

And I do hope that God will bless us with another healthy baby, and the next time, we pray for a healthy baby boy. Although two years is a very long time, I find myself already searching for baby clothes and planning up our little boy's name. I have also imagined how my pregnancy would go, with my little girl being able to feel like she is also a part of the pregnancy. Why, she would of course accompany me on my regular check-ups, listen and feel her little brother in my tummy, sing songs and talk to him, all those stuff that I know she will enjoy. Even now that I am not pregnant, I would sometimes joke to her that there is a baby inside my bulging tummy and she would kiss it. Ain't she a sweet little thing. And I know that she will be a very wonderful big sister to her little brother or little sister, whichever God will give us.


CC: I Will Do It Tomorrow

This week on Couple's Corner, Marce Liz asks: Did your spouse ever tell you that he will do it tomorrow, and yet it was left undone? I would definitely answer YES!

I have always been a patient person, or so I thought. Never had I imagined that I would be otherwise until I asked my husband to do something for me. He would just say OKAY and with that answer, I would of course expect that he would "obey" me and do it right away. But no... he wouldn't do it right away and I end up doing what I asked him to do because I can't wait for his "later" or "soon". He always tells me that I am very impatient. I always expect him to do the things I ask of him right away especially if it's house chores. I don't want things left undone before the day ends. I mean, if you can do it right away, why wait for later, right?

I guess the same goes for me. I am also guilty of saying Okay but never really getting around to doing things and sometimes, even forgetting them. I guess being the OC-type, you would expect me to be impatient if things don't get done the way I expect and want them too. And that drives my husband crazy. But he knows me too well that he just lets me be. An argument will only ruin our day and that is what we try to avoid, knowing that there's only the two of us that we can count on. Come to think of it, it has always been my husband who has always been patient with my crazy way of doing things. My, I am such a lucky wife!

Got Business Cards?

>> Monday, October 4, 2010

Many professionals find themselves unable to go on a business meeting without carrying these tiny business cards. Although mobile technology has advanced at such a rate that everything can be done wireless and "paperless", business cards are still a commodity.

Even those who are not doing any business have their own personal information cards. Why in the world would people get one? Because it is not always that one is hooked to the internet. And it is not always that people have mobile phones. And it is not always that people memorize their contact information. Just like me.

Many people tend to carry these little things because it is a way to network with other people. In this very competitive world of ours, it is always important to network and keep contact because you never know when you will need another person's assistance or advice.

So if you are thinking twice on whether you should get your personal version of a business card, just go ahead and get one. So what if not all of them keep your card or even bother to read them? There will always one person or two who is bound to read and keep it anyway.


You're Still You

Like Josh Groban? Then you must be familiar with the song You're Still You. This song goes out to those who choose to love despite the imperfections, and to those who are yearning to be loved unconditionally. 

Through the darkness,
I can see your light
And you will always shine
And I can feel your heart in mine
Your face I've memorized
I idolize just you

I look up to
Everything you are
In my eyes you do no wrong
I've loved you for so long
And after all is said and done
You're still you
After all
You're still you

You walk past me
I can feel your pain
Time changes everything
One truth always stays the same
You're still you
After all
You're still you

I look up to
Everything you are
In my eyes you do no wrong
And I believe in you
Although you never asked me to
I will remember you
And what life put you through

And in this cruel and lonely world
I found one love
You're still you
After all
You're still you
It's such a beautiful sweet sad song isn't it? Indeed true love doesn't count mistakes, it is more about acceptance and seeing beyond the flaws and being forgiving. Just like The One who has remained faithful to us despite our flaws, our imperfections, our sinfulness.


84 Days To Go...

>> Friday, October 1, 2010

I can't believe it's already October! Time really flies so fast, especially if you have so many things to do in too short a time. The clock is ticking and soon, it will be Christmas Days. 

I still have yet to write down my Christmas shopping list, and I know that I have to work fast and hard if I want to complete buying all of them. Aside from that, I also need to send Christmas cards to our friends from around the world. Last Christmas, I failed to send them so I pledged to send them one this year. And I just know the perfect online store that sells Christmas Cards. Planning on buying one too? Then do click here.

I also have two balikbayan boxes to fill, and I know that it would take time to fill them up. I am running out of ideas on what to put inside. I know I can always place chocolates and food items that are not available in the Philippines. But I also want to send each one of them something special. My nephew has been talking endlessly about Optimus Prime so I already know what he wants. The rest of the family, I actually don't have any clue. Perhaps I can buy cosmetics and perfumes for the girls and perhaps shoes for the boys. I don't know... 

Oh well, I just hope I get to finish my Christmas shopping before the Christmas rush.


God Knows Your Needs

Here's a story that is really touching and inspiring. I received this in my Inbox and thought it worth sharing. We may not believe it, but God knows our needs. Take this story for example:
Louise Redden, a poorly dressed lady with a look of defeat on her face, walked into a grocery store.

She approached the owner of the store in a most humble manner and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries. She softly explained that her husband was very ill and unable to work, they had seven children and they needed food.

John Longhouse, the grocer, scoffed at her and requested that she leave his store at once.

Visualizing the family needs, she said: 'Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can.'

John told her he could not give her credit, since she did not have a charge account at his store.

Standing beside the counter was a customer who overheard the conversation between the two. The customer walked forward and told the grocer that he would stand good for whatever she needed for her family. The grocer said in a very reluctant voice, 'Do you have a grocery list?'

Louise replied, 'Yes sir.' 'O.K' he said, 'put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries.'

Louise hesitated a moment with a bowed head, then she reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale carefully with her head still bowed.

The eyes of the grocer and the customer showed amazement when the scales went down and stayed down.

The grocer, staring at the scales, turned slowly to the customer and said begrudgingly, 'I can't believe it.'

The customer smiled and the grocer started putting the groceries on the other side of the scales. The scale did not balance so he continued to put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more.

The grocer stood there in utter disgust. Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement.

It was not a grocery list, it was a prayer, which said:

'Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands.'

The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and stood in stunned silence.

Louise thanked him and left the store. The other customer handed a fifty-dollar bill to the grocer and said; 'It was worth every penny of it. Only God knows how much a prayer weighs.'
