Today my Dear Son graduated from Kinder 2. This June he will be entering Grade 1.

DH, myself and my in-laws all went to his graduation. I don't know what to feel, 6 years ago he's just a baby in my arms. I remember during those sleepless nights that I had to wake up and pump milk and pondering how I wanted him to grow up faster! Now I don't want my kids to grow up 'that' fast!

He received his diploma and got awarded with 2 medals. I never imagined that he would excel in academics, not because I don't think he will, but I just want him to enjoy school. I don't force him to study but I train him to be responsible. He can play all he wants after doing his homework. DS is a reader so I'm not worried about his comprehension. My yaya is his tutor in all English and Filipino subjects! Yes I have a Yaya who's a high school grad and a scholar from her province in Ormoc! I know, she's a blessing.  I tutor him in Chinese subjects. I was floored to received the phone call from his teacher a week ago and congratulating me because DS was 1st honor in English and 2nd honor in Chinese. Yaya definitely will be rewarded as well. LOL!! My in-laws are beaming with pride :)

I'm so thankful to God, having my kids being obedient and gifted are blessings that money cannot buy.

Thank You Jesus, for blessings that exceeds my expectation. May my family continue to bring honor and glory to You for the rest of our lives.

Surviving 15 Km & K-Swiss Ad

I think i almost passed out this morning trying to finish my 1st 15Km at the Globe's Run For Home Race this morning. It was soooooooooo hot & humid. I'm so glad it was a well organized race with LOTS of water stations and cold water sponges. It was a pretty sosyal race LOL!! The route was different that's one motivating factor and my first time to run along Ayala Ave, going towards Greenbelt Malls, all the way to Fort, Mckinley.. Overall I had fun except for the heat.

I didn't have the camera with me, so no pictures to share, sayang!

Anyway, peeps out there who follow IronMan Races should know Terenzo Bozzone!

Here's a link from my earlier post about him. He's the Champion at the 1st Cobra IronMan 70.3 here in the Philippines last year. This month, he competed at IronMan New Zealand and finishing 2nd with an awesome time 8:30:00. My goodness, the PRO's.. they fly!! He was part of the new K-SWISS ad, shot in California which i think was so cool. In the ad, you'll see him biking & running.

I'm so happy that I'm so into sports now. I really feel healthier and I encourage all women and mothers to go into sports!

Happy weekend!

Psalm 37

For the past few months, my heart is troubled by some decisions that I have to make.. Give it up or what? It's been hard. I am waiting for the Lord. I admit many times I "fret". God just kept pulling me back and reminding me have His perspective.

I'm reading the book called "Lies Women Believe" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. Amazing book. These are my highlights for today from Chapter 10.

God's Word is sufficient to lead me, teach me and heal me. His WORD is alive and powerful; it is medicine for troubled hearts and peace for plagues minds. 

God CAN be TRUSTED. From time to time I have to remind myself, God has never once let me down-and He's not going to start now.

Psalm 37

 Do not fret because of evil men
       or be envious of those who do wrong;
for like the grass they will soon wither,
       like green plants they will soon die away.  
Trust in the LORD and do good;
       dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.  

Delight yourself in the LORD
       and he will give you the desires of your heart. 

Commit your way to the LORD;
       trust in him and he will do this: 

He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
       the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.  

Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;
       do not fret when men succeed in their ways,
       when they carry out their wicked schemes.  

Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
       do not fret—it leads only to evil.  

For evil men will be cut off,
       but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.  

A little while, and the wicked will be no more;
       though you look for them, they will not be found.  

But the meek will inherit the land
       and enjoy great peace.

Happy Birthday to DH!

Today is DH's Birthday! I've been saying this for the last 8 years and today I'm going to say it again that he is my best friend, advocate, encourager, motivator, mentor, adviser, partner in praying/fasting/parenting!

His cake this morning, the kids sang for their Daddy.

DH knows how to connect with our kids. I am more strict, while he allows them to have lots of fun, including painting their faces!

The cards and letters my kids made for their Dad..

This one written and designed by my 3 year old.

"I love you papa, thank you for the soft candy"

This one is designed by my 6 year old.

"Dear Aaron, Happy Birthday! Thank you for letting me play computer and letting me wach kids co. and boombarang"
Note: wach=watch; boombarang=boomerang

"Dear Papa Aaron, Thanks for your birthday will you give me something new? So I cannot be mad okay?

We had simple celebration, nothing fancy today. Forgot to take pictures of dinner with my in-laws. But the time/laughter & the jokes are priceless.

Thank you Lord for blessing DH with another fruitful year!

15Km Am I Ready?

I'm taking the plunge and signed up for Globe's "Run For Home 2010" 15km Race! I just got back from Hong Kong and race is next week, I have ZERO training. PANIC!!! :{

But I'm looking forward to the new race route, be one of the first to run along AYALA AVENUE! Bahala na. It's a good time to run and worship God.


It has been a tough, tough month for me. Hence blogging absence. Won't be sharing details for now, but I'm praying to make the right decision in the coming days, weeks etc..

Hey I don't have marital or health problems!! hehehe I'm 8 years happily married and our family has strong ties. God is our anchor.

I'm learning to trust and wait upon the Lord. His promises keeps me going daily.

Psalm 5:3
In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.

Psalm 37:7
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
