Can’t wait for tomorrow.
After almost two months of not seeing Nate, they are finally coming over tomorrow to celebrate Josef’s birthday with us. I suggested to Nissa if they could stay here overnight so she could rest, without thinking of cleaning and doing the weekend tasks in the kitchen. Sometimes, two days of rest is not enough, the weekend should be stress-free and relaxing. Anyway, I am looking forward to playing with Nate again, discovering what he has learned the past two months and seeing how fast he has grown into a very active toddler. It’s a period of discovery and exploration for our kid who’s not so little anymore.
I had a long chat with my priest son this afternoon who is attending a mission summit in Letran-Calamba. We talked of his assignment in Calayan. Time flies, a year is gone and in a few months he will be transferring to another mission. “Where to next?”, I asked and he answered “Camiguin”, another island in the north which is still a part of the Babuyanes Islands. He said it is more laid back, simple life to speak of but as equally beautiful as Calayan Island. He is happy to learn that I am still active at our Catholic Community page and still share my thoughts with the world through my blog. I laughed when he wrote back “OP Lay” meaning a Dominican lay preacher – preaching through mass media. I’ve always said even when I started this blog that if I could inspire a single soul out there, then I am fulfilled and happy. Josef is blessed, a mass intention will be offered on his birthday this Sunday. We are all blessed of course because we are always included in Lovell’s prayers. He always tells me, “bawal ma-depress at ma-stress” I know all that but sometimes life is hard and it is even harder to cope. “Stay in the grace of our Lord”. What lovely words! What was I thinking, negative thoughts should have no place in my heart.
I’ve found some amazing blogs here today – some blogs I followed, clicked a lot of posts that I liked. Inspiring words and beautiful stories that warm the heart. And here’s a quote for you today.
A blessed and happy weekend to all.
