A BIG Thank You

Standard

I feel so blessed because one of my followers, Beth from Chic Envelopements ( I’m a follower of hers as well because I want to journey with her as she joined the refashion wagon and I want to witness her creative creations ) chose me to be the recipient of her giveaway, fabric flowers, one her own DIY projects.  She announced it last April 9 on her post “and the winner of the fabric flower is…”

Last April 4,  she asked her followers to leave a comment on how we found her and what can she do to make our visits worthwhile.  She also announced that she’ll pick a winner to receive her giveaway as a way of her gratitude for the support and encouragement she has been receiving.  After I read the post, I left a comment straight away not only for the giveaway but because I would like her to know as well how I found her and why I am following her.  Actually, I found her blog after she followed me, then when I visited her site, the first thing that I read was the rustic chic wedding of her gorgeous daughter and my heart was captured after that.  The wedding is just beautiful and more importantly, I felt that she is a loving mother, a mother who shared one of the most meaningful life events of her daughter.  For me, that is so essential so I followed her and will always be.

Since that time, we’ve been encouraging each other through our simple yet straight from the heart comments.  So, once again, a BIG thank you to Beth from Chic Envelopments.  Greetings from the world down under…Australia!!  Cheers mate.

A mother’s prayer

Standard

I read a very heartbreaking news this morning from the internet that an 8 year old boy was hit by a car yesterday here in NSW, tried to be revived by his own mother but later died in the hospital. Apparently, it was a girl, an older student from the same school who was the driver of the car. This news struck me deep within. As a mother, I know this is something unfathomable. I knew the mother of the boy ran to him and tried unceasingly to revive him, was hoping that he would not stop breathing, was praying for her boy to survive. But her efforts did not succeed and so the efforts of the medical team. Her boy, who only enjoyed life for 8 years is gone. I really felt the pain and even though I do not know her, I prayed for her. As I am writing this, I again burst into tears and prayed once again for GOD to comfort her, for the LORD to carry her in HIS arms as she goes through the most difficult time in her life. I also pray for the mother of the the girl who unintentionally became the cause of the untimely death of the boy. I know she is in deep agony too. I also feel for her and pray that she will have enough strength to help her daughter face and accept the tragedy and eventually forgive herself. I pray for these two mothers who are in great sorrow and lastly I pray for my own son for him to be free from danger all the time.

I am praying for God to allow me to hug him more, to feel the warmth of my embrace

to be able to kiss him more, for me and my husband to show how much we love him.

I pray to God to let me walk beside him, support and guide him as he grows and experience LIFE.

He is my jewel,

my bundle of joy,

my superman,

my angel,

Oh, I just love this boy who is FOREVER the apple of my eyes!!

From my heart to yours

Standard

My 12 year old son who just started Year 8 last week set a goal for himself, that is to DO BETTER this year.  So came the first day of school and there was the excitement to begin with his plans, improved organization and developed time management.  Just when everything was planned, the unexpected came.  He got sick on the third day and the viral bug stayed for 2.5 days.  Hence, he was away for two days on the first week of school.  So he began to worry, thinking that he had missed several lessons that he does not only need to keep up but he needs to CATCH up a lot!

As his mother who cares so much, I know he is starting to be a bit anxious, and his stress level is starting to rise up.  This morning before he went off to school, I wished him good luck and of course, in my heart I prayed for him to be well and safe in school.  When he comes back from school I will be at work and so I can’t be there to witness how he will manage the “catching up” in the afternoon.  I thought of giving him a message, something that is so visual that he does not to read it from his phone, something that will remind him while he’s doing his tasks on his study table.  So, I printed a downloadable and printable “keep calm” message and put it in an old picture frame and then put it on his desk.  I know deep within, I can’t remove his worries nor reduce his anxieties.  He needs to do it himself, he must be able to handle pressures and exercise his coping mechanisms.  I am here only to remind, to support, to encourage and to  guide.  He is the one who can make himself CALM and CARRY ON!!
