Having that separation to bring me back to you. thank you for my family; they are my heart’s greatest joy. I love You Lord.
Seven years ago, he beat me to saying ‘I love you.’ I handed him a long letter, and he handed me a short line. Of course, we had individually decided before meeting, having brought the cards to the table, to show our hands. I didn’t say it because he said it, and vice versa. The unconventional detail was that this was our first date. Yes, our official date anniversary was also the first time we dropped the ‘L’ bomb. Seems rushed, but from that date, we already both knew it was the other. Someone once asked me how I knew Perze was really the one, I had to honestly say it was because God confirmed it in my heart when I took a season to just pray for him as a friend, and then eventually as a life partner. And He also confirmed His will by placing the same in Perze to pray for me. Now I know that relationships don’t always go by this recipe, but this one was our love story. I remember praying for him everyday, as I pray for my daughters now. So eventually, as they grow older, I hope it serves as a testament that […]
I haven’t been blogging as much as I should. I’m so preoccupied with some music responsibilities at church, esp. in preparation for the Christmas cantata. All the songs have been taught, the clothes bought and made, the books and trax ordered, the roster finalized, the tickets distributed, the promotions made public. The last few ingredients are still left to be done, the bulk of it being the powerpoint presentation and program. After cantata, there is one more main 2009 project I want to accomplish and then onto the promises of 2010, filled with more vision for our church. I am very excited I have a new year. I dipped my feet into 2009 as the director of music in our church, with even heavier responsibilities as a mother of two, one newborn and a preschooler. I admit that this role has deterred me in accomplishing more in the ministries, but I’m only very thankful that the church family is understanding with my limited limbs. As far as family is concerned, my eldest, like I mentioned, is on her last year at home. Next fall, she’ll be matriculated into a professional institution called kindergarten! Yes, my monkey, my Monkitchi, my beloved […]
Zi’s 6th month. About that time again, a little before she turns another month, I want to archive her accomplishments, idiosyncratic behaviors, etc. Motor Since her 5th month was devoted to independently sitting, her 6th month went directly to crawling. The first week of her 6th month, she learned to push her legs into crawling position, and now, she can crawl from one end of a room to the other pretty quickly. She’s gone mobile, now preying on unsuspecting objects, and inevitably obtaining them after a successful crawl! Yay! This pretty much means we can’t have wires and small objects lounging around like tourists. We’re so proud of her. Also, in her 6th month, she’s started to use objects to independently pull herself up to stand, so we can already foreshadow what month 7 is going to be like. Feeding Zienne is still nursing, as well as using the bottle. She’s continuing her solids, yet no teeth! But it’s good for me since, I’m not looking forward to nursing a baby with teeth. I remember Emma and it wasn’t a fun time. Games Zi learned to play several games. She’s mastered all the toys on her exersaucer, reaching even the […]
