It was a quiet quarantine birthday.  We just ordered food at home for lunch and dinner. I’ve missed Nissa’s family though. I was busy almost the whole day answering comments and greetings on Facebook and a couple of long-distance calls to boot.

I enjoyed reading all their messages. I guess that is how a quarantine birthday is celebrated. Since we can’t all go out, we just decided to stay at home.  I got a lovely surprise when someone called that he was at our gate, he greeted me a happy birthday first before delivering a big box from flowerstore.ph – a gift from Nissa. Wow! Took shots of how the day went.  It is quite touching to see  Mum smiling and lovingly touching those lovely blooms. She just love flowers.

Wohoo, that’s me at 64!

Look at the white hairs. I haven’t been to David’s for almost eight months now.

A boodle “bilao” (a big tray)complete with sisig, barbeque, tapa, fried chicken, chicken inasal and lumpiang shanghai plus a kilo of ready to fry veggie lumpia.

A birthday cake from Red Ribbon, a gift from Josef and Jovy.

Making a wish? Just for good health always!

Sunburst! A beautiful, cheery bouquet of two toned violet mums, pink carnations and a sunflower.

It came with this lovely birthday balloon.

Those carnations and mums are just so lovely.

How they look in our sala. I noticed the leaves that look like cuttings from Gardenia. Can’t wait to plant them soon.

So that’s how the day went. Glad to be 64 at last.

Monday, Monday, so good to me. 

Ah, I think it is a line in one of the songs of the Mamas and the Papas, right? I am having a LSS at the moment but I just hope Monday would be good and also the rest of the week.

Here’s one good news I guess. Nissa told me last night that there is another medal  waiting for Nate which she and Obet will get today from  Nate’s school. It is still part of the two medals  ( High Honors and Character Traits Awards) plus the  certificate he got earlier this school year.  Best English Speaker.  I  am not surprised since he is speaking the language since he learned how to talk and speak.  Mother and son are comparing notes…haha! Nissa  told  him  that she had hers (from nursery to college) kept here. She was able though to show him her college diploma and took shot of it last night. Nate asked her what Magna Cum Laude means so she explained it. She told him to study well. I told you he is seven going twenty, right? He has this dream of being a Magna Cum Laude too when he graduates….yeay!

 

Dreams are not impossible to come  true as long as you believe they are  achievable.  Focus, diligence, conscientiousness and right attitude coupled with prayers for guidance.

Proud Nonna here.

Just received a package a while ago from my Franciscan friend Sr. Thea who stayed in the Holy Land for three months. She sent me all these – key chains from Assisi, France and the Holy Land and also a Divine zeal key chain from Myanmar.

I love the rosary best. She said it is blessed by touching the big rock on which Jesus prayed in Gethsemane. The center medal at the back of the image of the Blessed Mother is soil from the Holy Land.

Don’t ask me how I was able to post this photo. It was just by trial and error. I took it using my tab’s camera.

I have good news guys but first I want to thank you all again for your concerns, good thoughts and prayers for my brother.  He is finally going home tomorrow after more than two weeks stay at the hospital. He’ll be on a restricted diet of brown rice, green vegetables, fruits and fish. No meat.

It’s a good thing there are plenty of greens in our yard and in our baranggay. They are easier to obtain than buying meat in the market. You can even get them free from neighbors and relatives.

His doctor is so supportive. The result of the CT scan is not yet in but he is free to consult his physician anytime.  I told him to follow the doctor’s advice to the letter.

They say GOOD LUCK comes in threes. Received two today.  I consider them blessings though. THANK GOD for His graces.

I love you, Lord
And I lift my voice
To worship You
Oh, my soul, rejoice!
Take joy my King
In what You hear
Let it be a sweet, sweet sound
In Your ear.

When you are touched by God’s graces more than you ever expect, your heart sings with joy and gratitude. They always say,“into each life, some rain must fall” and those are the moments that you realize that you are not alone, that God is always there for you, you just have to keep the faith and believe!
