More or less

Something "TRUE TO LIFE" to share with you this Holy Week. I got this from email and it did hit me straight to the heart. I had always complaints of what to cook or what to eat; sometimes I even not consume everything in my plate when I really don’t like it. I remember my family and friends used to tell me, “You’re lucky enough that you have something to eat, there are lots of people who are dying in hunger”. Whenever they say this, I’m giving them a silly response in saying, “Could you call all those hungry people and give this food that I can’t finish eating?” Oh, that changes when I saw this short film. It’s really true that I’m so blessed with things that sometimes I’m too blinded to appreciate. Why are there people who have more than enough and those that who have less? And you see those who need more are the ones who are closer to God.

Sweet and Sour

With four straight nights of work, I know Lorie is so tired and needs some time of rest. After having our breakfast, she still gave a little more of her time playing with us. I can see how hard this very sweet woman trying to manage everything just to balance her work and family time. So, when she went to our bed for a sleep, my son and I made sure that we won’t disturb her and that is by playing outside the bedroom. But I know she deserves more other than having a peaceful sleep, so I decided to prepare a dinner treat for her. This will make her want to always be on her rest days… hehe.. I think…
