On Mothers Day!

Mothers Day had passed already but it doesn't mean we have to stop honoring our beloved mothers. We have to make sure that every day we make our mothers feels special, needed, respected and loved. You don't have to give her expensive gifts or flowers; a phone call, text or just a gesture of respect is a vivid way of showing them how much we value and honor them.

On Mothers Day, people go crazy in spending money and finding the perfect gift for their mothers. What is the unique mothers day gift you have given and received on Mothers Day?

I haven't received anything fancy on that day but my little guy made me a card and put up a beautiful art for me that hubby and I decided to frame it and hang it in the wall of our room or his room. As for hubby, he gave me shopping money and takes me to the mall to shop for few outfits on that day.

It wasn't the gifts, cards or money I received on Mothers Day that counts the most, it is the treasured time that I spent with my boys and loved ones that matters the most!

Part Of Me

All of us have different inclination. I mean, some people love writing, computer and online games, shopping, horse back riding, diving or master the art of horse riding: equestrian. I grew up in a small town about 2-3 hrs away from the city but my first five years of existence in this world was spent in a very remote but very beautiful place where there was only our house and our farm around us.
Back then, our parents raised different kind of animals like cows, carabao (domesticated species of water buffalo), horses, goats and poultry. We used horses as our means of transportation to go from one place to another. So riding a horse isn’t really a new thing for me back then. In fact, I was very good at it. My parents bought me a riding shoes more or less liken to an equestrian boots for added comfort and convenience. I love those boots so much and it took me a long time to let it go. I still keep it even if it doesn’t fit me anymore. I only let it go when they bought me a new one. Trade in? Mom said and I said yes!
Most of our hobbies originated when we were young. We might not do it for a long time but at some point in the future you tend to look into it again and get back into it. One of my wishes is for me to be able to ride horses again in the near future, not only in one day but more frequent as possible.
Right now, I am just focusing myself with gardening. This is the newest hobby I have and I love it!

Loving My New Hobby

I never thought gardening can be so addictive. Every time I am done doing some work in my small vegetable garden at the back, I feel so great; very rewarding. It is also very exciting watching the plants grow every day. I can't wait to harvest some of them and use them in cooking food. I can't wait to start eating organic vegetables again just like what I ate in the first 23 years of my life. This is my first time gardening and I am hoping this will be a success.

Come Sunday, I will be adding more plants in my garden. I plan to buy more eggplant, okra, spinach, string beans and some herbs. I want to maximize all the space I have in my garden. I guess I picked the right location of my garden in the backyard; it isn't very big but the shape gives me more room to plant more vegetables.

Strike Hard

The South has been greatly devastated by the series of severe thunderstorms, hail and destructive tornadoes. Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and some part of Texas had been greatly affected. Several properties had been damaged including houses, cars,etc especially from the hard hit areas. Last week's series of tornadoes resulted to hundreds if not thousands of homeless families. It was indeed a very devastating week for several people in the southern part of the country.

Just like the victims of Hurricane Katrina and other calamities, victims of the recent mother earth wrath is determined to rebuild their house and the community. They sure need help financial help but prayers and moral support will greatly be appreciated, I believe.
