Welcoming 2012

I really did not bother prepare bigtime for this year. I guess the excitement was not totally within me. Something strange preoccupied my thoughts and my heart. I wasn’t feeling genuinely happy about a lot of things. I tried my best to shrug it off by taking care of the kids and finding ways to earn from home, so as keeping in touch with friends and relatives. These things and people kept my sanity.

I ordered what we call Biko and Palabok from a friend’s sister. I made those cathedral window jellos.

The fireworks blasted at the half of this month. We were half an inch away from “the end”, really. You can almost hear me sing ?? “all my bags are packed, I’m ready to go..” I was so sure it was the sign I was waiting for after attending the mass at the Quiapo Church last Sunday but then something else happened..and I think that was the real sign. I vowed to take care of my kids and love them more than I love myself and I will never leave without them.

Now, I am still here not because I can’t leave and live off him but because I glady gave it the chance to start over. Agreeing to correct mistakes at once and refrain to commit them as much as necessary.

Life goes on…a stitch and a patch made us go through a painful part of it but we both deserve a chance to be happy.

Shadow Shot Sunday: Luces

My daughter, when this was taken was about 4 years old… she”s now turning 9 by July. In this featured photo, she”s delighted to have a luces, it”s a small type of firework you held by your hand.  And this by the way was taken New Year”s eve, as we welcome 2007. The reason why I”ve chosen this to upload is because you can no longer have my daughter hold a lighted luces like this one. I”m not sure why though but definite that she”s never had a bad experience about it. She cried the last time I lighted one and gave to her. On the contrary, it is actually okay to me as her mom. I guess my daughter has learned from other people”s experiences. We often see videos of people who accidentally lost some of their fingers or had bloody experiences playing with fireworks. That”s always in the news after or even before New Year”s eve. There are just some who likes to break rules, that is why.

Anyways, here”s my entry for Shadow Shot Sunday. My first in this new blog site where I”d like to share my hobbies and interests. Used a digital camera here, no flash, no edits. I truly welcome comments, suggestions and even critical remarks, hehe!
