    Some Things To Remember During A Cemetery Visit With Kids and Babies

    It has been a Filipino tradition to visit our departed loved ones at the cemetery during the “Undas” season (All Saints Day and All Souls Day), with the whole family. As a kid, I grew up “tomb hopping” as we visit relatives and I enjoyed collecting melted candles. The cemeteries in Manila get so crowded that some LGU had to limit and sometimes no longer allow cars inside, people had to walk. I did experience a tiring walk as a kid. If you are to bring kids with you at the cemetery, what should you prepare and expect as well? How do we keep them safe and at the same…

    Feast of The Divine Mercy

    Today, I got up a little late for the Sunday mass on TV. Still, I decided to start my day with the mass. I missed about 80% of the mass but really learned something great. There, I found out that today is The Divine Mercy Sunday, the first Sunday after Easter. When I was a still a kid, I remember that my Grandmother (who was then a member of The Catholic Women’s League) would always encourage me and my cousins to come with her to church and attend the mass and even join processions. Now, I have realized that the procession that happens every Sunday after Easter is for the…

    Everyday is a blessing!

    No matter how yesterday was, everyday is a blessing! Since we receive a blessing that moment we open our eyes each morning, it is but right to be thankful. I must admit, I have only fully accepted this fact when I became a Mom. It was a futile realization I must say. So, if stress has made me skip saying a prayer before bedtime, I have to say it upon waking up. The thank you prayer has to include that I was awakened, I was me as I was yesterday and have another chance to make myself better. This time, it is not just for myself but for my family,…

    Paris, The Chihuahua Gave Birth!

    It was Paris” first time.  And just like a woman, it was quite hard for her. Paris is my cousin”s Chihuahua and her brother, they named Taguro, is their babies” dad. She gave birth to 2 cute very dark Brown pups.   They were present and attended during Paris” labor and had help from a vet. Since Paris is just a small dog, they were charged 4K. And I think it is because of a CS delivery. See, whelping (a new word I have learned – the term for dogs giving birth, or birthing dog)  is costly but I guess the fee is not bad at all, Paris was well…
