The scariest thing about distance is you don't know whether they'll miss you or they'll forget about you. - The Notebook
Decide to be a blessing to everyone. Forgive anyone who has hurt you, and leave unresolved circumstances in God's hands. - Joyce Meyer

Proud mom indeed!

I came home greeted by my 12 year old. 
He washed the dishes, and house is clean. 
This will really land in my journal. 
Can't help being grateful! God You're so good!

Yes, I feel like a super mom!

It started with my eldest son's Pugad Adventure with me on field. 
He came home with a mug and a key chain. 
Ma, I got this for you.  It was fun there.  Sayang, you and ading were not able to make it.  

Guilty mother syndrome! But yes, I felt like I was in 7th Heaven with his thoughtfulness. 

Hey son, are you proud of me (a question made in jest)? 
Because you are doing everything you can for me and ading (I did not really expect a quite serious reply).

And today, while waiting for my turn in the salon, I asked him to buy an envelope...
Ma, here, I bought two, just in case...
I opened the long brown envelope, and to my surprise, a Mother's Day Card for me!

Kilig much!

Can't help but be grateful how God has given me such wonderful and thoughtful children.  
I feel so rewarded despite all the "am I a failure mom?" lie that kept on playing in my head for how many weeks.  

It really takes grace to be a parent. And thank God for He molding me and teaching me constantly to be the best mom to two wonderful boys. 


If she's amazing, she won't be easy
If she's easy, she won't be amazing
If she's worth it, you won't give up
If you give up, you're not worthy...
Truth is, everybody's going to hurt you
You just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.
- Bob Marley

Marriage is for the humble and forgiving.  It is not for the faint of heart.

I can't understand why I am seeing leather boots, jackets, and cardigans.
Is it me?
At 33 degrees celsius.
Could it be me?

Is there really a Miguel Montenegro in reality? 
Perhaps yes, because there is a Zoren Legaspi. 
Can't shake off that oowwie feeling after watching "It takes a Man and a Woman."
And yes, for a while, I was quite wishing I were in the shoes of Laida or Carmina. 
Oh, snap!

Why so downcast o my soul
Put your hope in God
and bless the Lord o my soul

"Even when God seemed to have abandoned me, He was watching.
Even when He seemed indifferent to my suffering, He was watching.
And when I was beyond all hopes of saving, He gave me rest.
He gave me a sign to continue my journey." - Life of Pi

Worked today with my children in tow. We all enjoyed just being together. 
Of course not to mention them getting bored while waiting.
But boredom got compensated when we had lunch together at Hebrews Cafe, 
with their favorite adobo meal, not to mention a very good view of the city.  
And yes, my Aaron was so ecstatic about the view.

I am a working mom. And meantime, I am "single." 
And it makes parenting all the more challenging.  
And when my tweener and my toddler would say:
"Thank you Ma, we enjoyed the day!" it really makes me feel like a super mom!
