My story always starts with my childhood. I have settled that it is both my gift and my curse. I have narrated over and over the passing of my mother that changed the course of our lives. Today, I began wondering and wandering- would our lives ever be different if she were still in it?Continue reading “Shackles of Yesterday and the Promise of Today”

Discussion on Life’s inevitables
Yesterday, we attended the online Sunday Praise and Worship with the theme on MOTIVATE (ACRONYM). The topic was Intimacy (Relationship). After the service, we talked a little about life, forgiveness and surrender. My husband is not a talker and usually avoids difficult conversations on life like ambitions, passion, struggles, and specifically death. Last night, whileContinue reading “Discussion on Life’s inevitables”
Women are expected to be everything
Just last night, a breakdown happened. It was something that has not happened in a long time for me. It’s not that I have developed a knack for keeping my mess together but being able to set them aside temporarily. I am the typical mother of the millennia- juggling work, motherhood, wife duties and allContinue reading “Women are expected to be everything”
Marriage and Expectations
Last night, while trying to insert reading into my day my husband teased me by intently trying to annoy me. I quickly asked him to stop but he playfully provoked me into having a fight. And I asked, do you really want to fight? Few minutes after I asked what they want for breakfast theContinue reading “Marriage and Expectations”
Joke of the Day!
I was with the boys today to discuss operations, gorgeous ladies and to-dos. Then, I heard this conversation: They say there are 3 rings in marriage: Engagement Ring Wedding Ring & Suffering Do you agree? I’d learn a lot from these barakos. On the other note, when I became a wife, it were the only first 2Continue reading “Joke of the Day!”
In Sickness & in Health
There is this one question married people know the answer to. When we promise someone in front of God or in front of a presiding person to stay in sickness & in health, do all of us mean it? Someone asked me why people go in the midst of medical crisis. When a spouse turnsContinue reading “In Sickness & in Health”
Are you a Highly Sensitive Person?
I was browsing through Facebook yesterday when I bumped into a shared article about love. Since it is the month of St. Valentine, please allow me to delve into it. The article about How To Love A Human Being was shared by my mentor, I always read what she shares. Usually those articles are forContinue reading “Are you a Highly Sensitive Person?”
Going mobile is exhausting, too!
When we planned out our monthly visit to the in-laws, it sounded exciting and fun. The first few months were amazing but after 2 trips back and forth, exhaustion became apparent. Yesterday, we came here in Cebu to visit Gran2x and Grampa, Grampa needs a cheer and a smile from Blyf. You’ll know it isContinue reading “Going mobile is exhausting, too!”
Marriage and Annoying Behavior (It’s me, Not him)
I put my almost 3 year-old daughter to sleep last night, and moments later she put me to sleep. So, here I am early in the morning, trying so darn hard to work and catch up, wishing once in a while that the whole world will stop except me-for just at least 4 hours (ifContinue reading “Marriage and Annoying Behavior (It’s me, Not him)”
The Mobile Dream
My husband is my complete opposite. I don’t think that is a bad thing but it is always a challenge when we both have different views on things and when our plans do not go exactly together. For years, I have been under the delirious belief that I was free, independent, fearless and spontaneous (stereotypicalContinue reading “The Mobile Dream”
