Prayer Time

Prayer will not prepare us for the great work.
It is the great work.

A Beautiful Woman Award

My sister in Christ Hon gave me this very wonderful award and I am so thankful for this.

There are no rules for this award, she is just asking to pass it along to some of the beautiful women I know.

I have so many beautiful women in mind but since I do not update my blog that much, let me give it to the two beautiful women bloggers I know. Please accept this award mommy amor and mommy phebs.

Welcome 2009!

It's 2009. Another year, another chapter of my life.

I was not able to blog that much since I am currently having my training with my new department. My old department was moved to Bulgaria and we were transferred to a new department. We are having our training now. It is fun. At least I get to know more people and I get to learn new stuff.

Such a good way to open another year.

If you're happy and you know it...

My son, asked me to read one of his favorite books yesterday.

It was the book called “If you’re happy and you know it.” I would have to sing the lines and he will act it out. So I started singing it. “If you’re happy and you know it, Clap your hands…..” and then he acted it out.

There was a part there were it says, “If you’re happy and you know it give a hug.” He suddenly stood still. I asked him why he is not hugging me. He whispered to me, “Mommy, I’m shy.”

I did not know what to say. I immediately called his Lola’s attention and told him what happened as I smiled.

But deep inside I know I was hurt. And afraid. I never imagined he would grow up this fast. I just told him kissing or hugging us is not a thing to be ashamed of. I told him that he should never, ever, be ashamed of showing affection to his parents. He was convinced and gave me a big hug.

I have heard stories and read about it. About the time when the kids no longer want to be kissed in public or be held, but I guess I’m not yet prepared for it.

I know it will going to happen eventually and I have to be ready to face it. Maybe I was just overacting. Yeah, maybe I am.

Please mommies, help me clear my mind. Right at this moment, I can’t clap my hands.
