Life's surprises, awards and some good-byes...Monday, June 08, 2009
Last night was one of those nights that reminded me that life is full of challenges
There are incidents in my life that I wish didn’t happen,
but I can’t change time and undo the wrong paths we’ve taken;
Sometimes there seems to be crosses that I have to bear.
At times I question, why us, why them, why me?
Can I blame all that to a greedy lawyer that took hundreds of thousands of dollars, or can the blame be on us for trusting those who gave us false hopes?
Back then, we weren’t google-ing for information that would have prevented such tragedy in our lives.
Life is unfair sometimes… or is it – life is what we made it to be.
I'm definitely stressed out when I woke up because I ate 3 cupcakes, half of the blueberry pound cake, portabella and goat cheese panini and banana bread
(compliments of my daughter's bf's bakery).
I lost my zen last night that prompted my 8yo to ask questions he wouldn't understand the answers for.
When he was asked, "What are you waiting for?"
He answered slowly inunciating every word, "I am waiting for nothing"
And in his 8yo wisdom, he suggested, "Mom, you should write to the Governor.
I can't let my family in the Philippines wait for nothing, so maybe I should do just that.
I don’t know if I can handle such responsibility and last night’s overseas phone call is a reminder of such a hefty task.
Please do pray that my family and I continue to have the faith and strength to get through these challenges.
When I opened my email Monday morning, I was pleased and surprised by 2 thoughtful bloggers who were sweet enough to share their awards with me.
1) Dee of “A Mom’s Journey”, thank you for the Lovely Blog Award;
2) Ty of “Mama of 3 Munchkin”, thank you for the Kreativ Blog Award;
