Our lives changed by the pandemic

I am quickly writing this while assisting my eldest daughter Kyrzten and planning my day for work at home. She’s listening to Teacher Rose, her Civics teacher. They are talking about maps and its different kinds. Gone are the days where I drop off the kids to school in the morning and pick them upContinue reading “Our lives changed by the pandemic”

Father’s Day and what sacrifice means

Every time I read stories of people narrating how they were raised by amazing selfless dads, I can’t stop my tears from welling. I was raised by a “rockstar” father. Even at the age of 60, his heart still prefers to be with his bandmates more than his children. He did provide for us asContinue reading “Father’s Day and what sacrifice means”

The World of the Married and My Problem with Society’s Focus on Infidelity

Cheating is a very common theme in entertainment. Songs are filled with broken hearts and countless movies have made infidelity the focal point in crime or suicide. In my own country, TV ratings are perceived to be much higher when a TV Show involves cheating and more so scenes with confrontation. I never understood theContinue reading “The World of the Married and My Problem with Society’s Focus on Infidelity”

I Wanna See You BE BRAVE

Honestly, I could not explain why the line “I wanna see you be brave” keeps my tears rolling like non-stop. Then every single time it plays, I remember being young, confused and scared and no one was there to tell me “Be Brave”. I wasn’t sure if I was and if I was- going throughContinue reading “I Wanna See You BE BRAVE”

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”

Loneliness Strikes

“You are stronger than you think you are.” Often I respond with pride, “I know.” But the truth is, it slips through my understanding what being strong really means. Life was never unfair, and God therefore is always reasonable. He gives and so He takes. Your intentions therefore your outcome. No matter how the wordsContinue reading “Loneliness Strikes”

Where things matter

Many of the things I wanted to write about vanishes just before I could grasp them. What is it today? Let me try to recount. I met a little fella when I changed into my running clothes this morning. The fella was comfortably lounging at the back of the car. Even when I moved aroundContinue reading “Where things matter”

Storytelling

I can vividly remember the day I got fascinated with stories. I was 4 or 5 years old when I insisted to sit-in at my siblings kindergarten class. It was the only class in our community funded by a non-profit organization and conducted by volunteers who if my memory serves me right were given allowances toContinue reading “Storytelling”

2017- The Year that was

I’ve always wondered why a new year has to be celebrated. When I was little I remembered the festive feel it gives, the food, and the noise. I was just sort of- going with the flow. As life grow inside of me, I was given answers to some questions and usually answers aren’t absolute asContinue reading “2017- The Year that was”

That Tiny Cottage in My Dream

A movie date with my husband yesterday and on our way home, the conversation goes like this: Mommy: Dad, I saw this funny video like a gag TV show wherein a man would put a cute piglet inside a faux grinding machine that would produce sausage. He would let the innocent bystanders taste the sausagesContinue reading “That Tiny Cottage in My Dream”

Doc Sahlee

We just had a trip to the doctor today as my youngest was having a hard time with runny nose, colds and cough. Even though we’ve bought over-the-counter medicines, I still feel uncomfortable giving medicines that’s not prescribed by her pediatrician. She’s the doctor of both my daughters and I call her Doc Sahlee. BecauseContinue reading “Doc Sahlee”
