Liam at Seven – My Prince’s Birthday Celebration

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

“Count your life by smiles, not tears. Count your age by friends, not years.”

My eldest son turned 7 last November 29 but the celebration was held last December 3. All of his birthdays are equally important but his 7th birthday marked the most important for the reason only me and my husband understand. Seventh birthday is also special as per culture and tradition in Batangas.

There are unusual ways of celebrating a 7th birthday here in Batangas. First, seventh and 21st considered the most important birthdays for boys. First, Seven and 18th for girl celebrants.



I never Celebrated my birthday when I was young because my parents cannot afford even a simple cake. Kaya gusto kong i-celebrate ang birthday ng anak ko dahil gusto ko i-treasure nila ang kanilang birthday dahil regalo ito ng Diyos.

Hindi naman ako nanghinanakit that we grew poor, in fact parang grateful ako dahil natutunan kong i-treasure ang mga bagay na mayroon ako ngayon.

Here are some Photos and Highlights in my son’s Birthday Party:

LIAM’S 7-7
We chose a Royal Theme Celebration. Part of the entourage and program are : 7 Balloons, 7 Gifts, 7 Bills, 7 Toy Guns, 7 Animal Toys ( depend on the birthday celebrant Favorite), 7 T-Shirts, 7 Kid’s Shorts, 7 Wishes given by Liam’s 7 Princesses and little Princesses.

LIAM’S Princesses and Little Princesses













It’s my choice to have princesses because I want the party to be full of beautiful little queens. I let them wear Tiaras and Long gown. I am grateful that their parents obliged.T

The Preparation

Thank you for being with us, your presence matters..

LOVE…LOVE…LOVE…

The 3 Expressions of a Father’s Love– A daughter’s tribute

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

            My father joined his creator May of last year. He is the best father and a good provider. We haven’t got enough money to splurge on material things but we are filled with his unconditional love – the Love that cannot be fathom, the love that can’t be shaken by surging storms and shaking grounds.

I wrote this article as a tribute to my father. These past few days, I often saw him in my dreams.  I can’t get his message but I missed him badly.

What the Bible say about family and fatherhood? In Colossians 3 it says, “Wives, submit to your husband, as is fitting to the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh on them. Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Father, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.”

In my opinion, the best advice on parenting comes from the Bible. If we only obey what it says, no divorce and no separation will take its place. Our family is never perfect, when I was a kid I often saw them fighting silently, but they never gave up on us!

MY EXPERIENCE ABOUT FEBRILE CONVULSION

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblr

My eldest son was 8-month old when he suddenly passed out in my arms. I was so shocked that I couldn’t explain my feeling. My whole body was shaking and my mind cannot function well. I don’t know what to do.  I am hopeless. I was crying and shouting for help, I thought he was dead. He lost his consciousness although his eyes remained open. His skin turned blue.

His seizure ended after 5 minutes but that 5 minutes was a nightmare. It was a terrible feeling I couldn’t explain, a worst feeling a mother could ever feel most especially if you are a first time mom.

Due to panic, my husband brought my son to the nearest hospital barefooted. He also didn’t wear any t-shirt. Situation like this will paralyze your entire mind and body. You cannot think straight, I can’t think of a better solution. I can’t calm myself because I’m terribly shaking.

Prayer of a Forsaken Child

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedintumblrI wrote this prayer just after Typhoon Yolanda. It was a super typhoon landed in the Philippines that stole a thousand lives. It was probably the most destructive typhoon ever landed in the region.

It happened years ago but it always remind me of that tragic night. It taught me lessons of empathy and gratefulness. Life is short to waste on things that don’t matter. It taught me to live my life to the fullest.
