Dealing With A Teen-ager

Sigh, you know that frustrating feeling of wanting your son to look clean and fresh all shaved and with a haircut to your liking yet being turned down because the boy-man says it is no shave November!

Oh my! Now I am looking for a shaving stand I could buy him if only to inspire him to take away those unsightly beard! Sigh again. Wish me luck convincing the boy in a man's body! Well to date he has agreed to shorten the mustache but not to completely eliminate, I'd say great start! ☺

The Music of Friendship

I miss the times I could just watch the sky changing colors. It makes me feel as if I could play a yamaha electric cello and listen to my friends sing. I had a highschool chum with whom I tried composing a song with! She took care of the melody while I filled in the lyrics. It was for my crush! Gee, the craziness of youth! Today as I type I think about so many friends who filled the pages of my life and silently call out their names wtitten in my heart. I miss you guys! Shoot me a comment please! :)

A Lullabye

Yesterday I was smiling as I listened to a sister in law chanting to her baby. My nephew was not feeling well and was unusually cranky. So sis-in-law treated him to a lullabye concert sort of. I wanted to interrupt her singing to tell her she reminded me of her mom's voice. It's amazing how mothers could turn artists when it comes to their kids. Am sure as the boy grows he will be singing too and his mom would be frantically searching for musical instruments.

I think I will give the mother and son something from www.musician.com.

Almost Christmas!

You know what I love most when September comes? It means in just a few weeks people will be shouting for joy again- the magic of Christmas will soon fill the air!

Our Christmas Family Photo last year

As it is now the hubby who is more into decorating the house during the season has been searching for
radko christmas ornaments at christmas place and the kids are excited to watch me and their dad argue about the tree and the lighting around the house.Oh the happiness of having two kiddos- boys at that and a hubby who loves Christmas just as much as I do. Thinking twice, I think he is more into Christmas than I am LOL.

'til Death Do Us Part....

Love is the most powerful emotion. It can bring out the best in you; make you smile the whole day through or sing to a happy tune. Simply cheap promise rings are enough to seal A LOVE MADE IN HEAVEN. With or with no ring to symbolize a relationship for as long as you both truly care for each other nothing can separate your bond. That much I know! Having been married for more than ten years and happy as happy can be I can say LOVE is worth giving a chance....until death do us part!

January ... a Month filled with Surprise! A New Chapter ...A New Beginning!

It was one of the most celebrated month...
The air was filled with so much joy...
The cold winter breeze of January led us to this particular day...

His eyes grew wide...
His jaw dropped...
It was a feeling of disbelief...

I couldn't believe my eyes...
I asked, " Ny come quick!"
He said,  " Positive ny?"

"That was what I thought", I exclaimed!
We held our breaths...
He then quickly replied, " Let's do it one more time!"

...and we did!
With eyes glowing...we smiled...we looked  at each others eyes...
and in the next coming days...we smiled even more...knowing that a wonderful chapter of our lives is about to begin!

Didn't you ever feel alone while being actually in a room full of people?  Don't you ever get lonely even while surrounded by many spactacular big "happy" things? Like you are being completely involved, consumed but yet unmoved.... Hmmm... we all do feel that sometimes, i guess... the emptyness, desperation, feeling alone, and the longing for that one soul to affirm our faith  and keep us on solid grounds. We search for the links which will anchor us back to the peaceful world of our realities... and from there, we can soar in the big sky again, unafraid.. (shared from kurdapya's collection of poetic murmurings)

 Wanting to reach -
But meaning escapes
The cold utterances.
Wanting to hear –
But the drumbeating
Couldn’t out-sound
The screaming
And there,
in a never ending cycle
Of  wanting…
grasping for what cannot…
Linking imaginings
With a breath of life,
There we are…
Hoping against hope-
To belong.

Three Thing's I'd Love To Do When I Retire

Work in the Garden from Sun up to Sun down

I've always wanted to grow my own ingredients for the kitchen. I'd love to have around the house all sorts of fruit-bearing trees and take care of those rare ornamental plants and sing to colorful petals kissed by butterflies!
