Father’s Day 2015

 

Life, amidst the odds, is like a walk in the park when these girls are beside their Dad.

Lucky daughters of mine!

Not all children have been blessed to have responsible, caring and loving fathers. This is what I emphasize to my daughters time and time again. And their Dad’s attitude that I like the most which is to never whine or grumble is what I always tell them to copy. Most of all, his love for God and desire for heaven and eternity with Jesus is what I want them to etch in their hearts so that we will together reunite by then when life on earth is over.

Happy Father’s Day to the one who fathered my children and to all wonderful Dads out there!

 

Friends are Family

 

It’s the middle of the year now and still, my schedule has still not loosen. This month marks our first year of being Texans and yet, I couldn’t believe it! Time flew by so quickly for us that it seems like we have lived here in Texas for years and years now. That’s because we have met so many friends here and have found ones that are like family to us.

Friends that are like family- they are one of the blessings that are priceless. I am so thankful to God that wherever we go and live, He has always prepared us people whom we will meet as friends and eventually consider as our family.

Despite the busy schedule that we manage, the always try to squeeze in our weekend schedule some time to be with friends and just enjoy some time together.

So, as we celebrate our one year since arriving in the big and beautiful Texas, one of the beautiful things I consider to also be a big blessing is having new friends who are family. It always makes life sweeter and grander when you have people around you who will share some great times with you. In our case, God has abundantly blessed us with some.
