In a Twinkling of An Eye

waiting2

In a quick blink of my eye, change shall come upon me. In a month’s time, my husband, whom I often talk about here in my blog, will be coming home already. Can you imagine that? Two years of being apart, we shall see the day that we will be together again.

His re-entry in our household will be a breath of fresh air. It will be a blessing to have another male around in the house. I can almost feel his presence hovering around our place.

Sweet reunion. We thank the Lord for keeping him safe and strong these past two years. We thank God for the experience my husband gained from working overseas. Much more, we thank the Lord for our families and friends who kept us sane during the times we were apart.

In a twinkling of an eye, I shall see you face to face my sweetie. And then, I shall give you a tight bear hug! 🙂

Isang Libo’t Isang Biyaya

Sa tuwing magdiriwang ako ng aking kaarawan, may halong lungkot at tuwa ang aking nadarama. Ngunit sa taong ito, pawang mga bagay na makapagpapangiti sa aking puso ang aking nadama.

Marahil ang pagbabago sa aking damdamin ay dulot din ng pagtanda. Mas may lalim at lawak na ang aking mga pananaw. Mas alam ko na kung ano ang mga dapat pahalagahan sa buhay na ito. Mas batid ko na ang mga hindi dapat pagtuunan ng pansin dahil ang mga ito ay makasisira lang sa aking buhay.

Pamilya at mga kaibigan. Sila ang nagpapasaya sa akin ngayon. Ang magsalu-salo at magbahagi ng mga kuwento sa buhay ng isa’t isa – ang mga ito ang nagbibigay-lukso sa aking puso. Sila ang dahilan kung bakit ako nagpapatuloy sa buhay na ito.

Sa lahat ng mga nakaalala sa aking kaarawan ngayon, maraming salamat. Isa kayo sa isang libo’t isang biyaya na natanggap ko mula sa Panginoon.

My Mundane Life Today

My daily life has tremendously changed ever since my husband and I decided I stay home and leave my teaching career for a while. Consider this my LOA (leave of absence). I have had LOAs in the past when I was in college. Twice I stopped school because of some health issues. Twice it pained me to stop doing what I thought I love to do best – being in school.

Now that I’m married, I am more at peace with this LOA. In fact, I’m beginning to love and embrace my new mundane life. Less  stress and less health concerns and less complications to deal with.

celebrateI get to wake up later in the morning. I then cook our dish for lunch. I run errands for my mom and my sis. I do my grocery and bank transactions. I enjoy sipping some hot coffee and delving on a crispy crepe at my favorite restaurant. I get back at home to cook dinner for the family. Then I blog away my thoughts and feelings. I also get to watch my ‘kiligserye’. Best of all, I get to talk with my husband nearly every night. Isn’t this the blissful and blessed life?

Yes, I may not be financially productive these days. But I have more than my share of true wealth – family, friends, good health and a whole lot more blessings from God.

That’s my mundane life today. And I’m surely loving every single minute of it. 🙂
