We remember, Daddy.

Today, my heart whispered a soft hello.

How are you?

 

I remember, Daddy.

I remember the phone call.

I remember the long ride going back home.

I remember the pain in my heart.

I remember crying so hard.

 

It has been 13 years, Daddy.

 

 

I try as much as I can to tell my kids how a great and loving grandfather you were to me. You are dearly remembered and greatly missed.

 

“Our memories, they have to be passed down by those who knew us in life – in the stories they tell about us.”

– Coco, movie

Happy Grandparents’ Day!

Lucky are those who were able to experience the unconditional love and devotion of their grandparents. I should know because I’m one of those lucky ones. – Liz

Most of my fondest memories in my life are with these two.

To My Daddy (Lolo) in Heaven and Mommy (Lola, who just turned 90 today),

Thank you for all the love you showered me. Both of you had been a great part of my life and I’ll always appreciate all the good things you have done and given me.

Our memories together will be forever engraved in my heart!

When La Dolce Vita Turns Sour

La Dolce Vita, the sweet life.

Life will never always be sweet, it is fact. And sometimes even if we know this is true, we still get caught up with our problems and burdens.

When the kids seemed to be not listening and make all this noise, and you just get tired of telling them to quiet down.

When your house help can’t follow simple instructions for the nth time and you get so frustrated you just do the chore yourself.

When you have told your child a million times to not go to your workstation and touch your work things. And you get home after a tiring errand and find your ever reliable (and expensive) headset broken, and you need it for work.

When you had to deal with inefficient service of companies and have to make several calls (and wait in queue for a long time) and follow ups because of their crappy service.

When you have to find a new home for your dog or else you won’t have a home because your perfect neighbors whom you have tolerated their own nuisance and lapses complained to your landlord about your dog. And now you’re dealing with a kid’s broken heart because of losing her pet and you’re also dealing with your own guilt and sadness for the pet that you have to let go.

When you have discovered that you had been sold something that was totally not as agreed upon. And getting back and talking with the seller was just a total waste of time and cause so much stress. That pursuing a formal complaint will be more costly in time and monetary terms.

Yes, all in one week. These among other things.

Yes, this is a rant. Plain candid and raw emotions.

Sometimes even if you don’t want, you absorb all this negativity happening around you.

For sure, we always try to be strong. But then there will be times that we are almost at the end of our rope.

When the mental and physical exhaustion outweighs and clouds our brains that we cannot seem to see the remaining goodness around us.

So what do we do if the sweet life we have turns sour? When life’s demands get the better of you?

I know you have your own struggles and burdens. It might even be a heavier load than mine. May you find comfort in these words as I did:

     From the moment I wake up until my last good nights, there is noise to fill my head and spirit. I hear requests. Demands. Instructions. Pleas. And that is on top of my own thought life. Lord, call me away from all this. My heart desires to be with You. Lead me to Your presence.

… And You offer nourishment and a place to rest my weary soul.

Let’s Begin Again

How have you been in the past year? Has it been good? Or was it a challenging one? Or maybe just like mine, it was a mix of good and bad times.

You see, I started this blog with the intent of inspiring and encouraging everyone specifically moms. It took really awhile for me to start posting with all the busyness in my life. At the beginning of the year in 2017, I finally started posting. But since I really wanted this blog to start strong, I had a hard time posting something inspirational while I, myself was struggling with my own problems.
But then maybe that was the point, life is never perfect anyway. We will always have our own personal struggles but for sure we will all surpass them. Having the right mindset and finding inspiration and strength not only within ourselves but from others as well can help alleviate our burdens.

And that is one of the purposes of this blog, to share with you quotes, passages or any tidbits of information that can spark hope to anyone.

So let me start by sharing this with you:

You can’t do anything about the past, and you don’t know what the future holds. But when you wake up in the morning, you can make up your mind to do your best to enjoy your day.
