I turned 30!


Two beloved people in my life. next photo: Schlitterbahn waterpark(fun birthday weekend)

September is the month when i get to be another year older!!! I remember when i was in highschool i couldn't wait to be old and mature, i thought there is so much freedom and so many things i can do without anyones permission, which very holds true. Ever since i was a teenager i always have a mindset to be independent. As i wished and hoped for, "I became one" independently minded person today. I am proud and content of what i have turned into. Gratitude to my supportive parents who let me spread my wings and cross an island for college. I recalled it was a tough decision for them since i am the youngest and their most loved babygirl(wink). I held responsible for myself for four years and luckily i accomplished the only thing that my parents ever wanted for me to have which is a good EDUCATION. Wealth they can only provide as an average income couple.

As i look back, i'm still amazed with the years i've been through, not a lot of tough times, yet somehow the bad experiences overshadows the positive ones. More on personal family matters that seem to get me eventhough i'm not directly affected. But it's more hurtful when someone in your family is struggling emotionally. I am the type of person who likes to make people happy in every way i can possibly can. I would rather be the one hurting than seeing others(family)in sorrow and pain.

I can say my colllege years are the most memorable and meaningful time of my adult life. Now that i am here in a foriegn land, married and a mother to my son Matthew i couldn't help but feel blessed. Not with material wealth but with things that matters most to me. That is, "GENUINE LOVE", and emotional security. I know i can carry another bumpy ride for the next 20 years to come knowing that i am satisfied and very happy, shielded by boundless affection from my loved ones. Some moments i think about death, i cannot say if i wholeheartedly accepted the harsh reality that someday we are all gonna vanish from this world we live in. No one is ready. Yes i'm afraid, but who does'nt right? But when i look back again, i know i have done my mission and experiencing it right now. So what else can i ask?

Who knows? in my own simple world, i have EVERYTHING at 30.

Another Overdue post!

I'm off today and thought it's the best time to update this page as i have no interruptions. Mattie is in daycare and hubby is in Ohio again for 4 days. I can willingly blog until it's time to pick up my little boy.
Some interesting events happened since my last post, some of it i would rather leave unspoken.

First up: Michigan trip last August(in details)

from left: Lanie, Kim, Geri, Gilda, Judy and Me

I was honored to be invited to join a filipina support group online, all are married to an American and most if not all i haven't meet in person yet. A get together was schedule in Michigan at Lanie's house. We are all warmly invited to stay at her nice abode over the weekend for her daughters birthday along with Ate Gilda's birthday celebration. Me and Mattie during the time being we're home alone as hubby is still working in Ohio, we're lucky if he gets to stay more than 2 days for a visit. So i didn't hesitate to plan a trip to join the ladies for a change and relaxation. I decided to leave Mattie with his daddy during his visiting weekend in Texas while i'm away. That was the first time i left town without either one of my men. I missed both of them terribly. Canada sidetrip came before i eventually meet with my online girlfriends in Clarkston, Michigan. A college friend of mine is only 20 minutes away from Detroit Airport crossing the canada-detroit borded so i thought of paying her a visit as well. (check my previous blog about my canada trip).

Anyway, it was a lovely meeting, nonstop eating and chitchats. You imagine being in one room with friends on your first meeting? yes pretty pretty loud and overflowing fun and smiles you can't resist. I felt like i've known them forever. Ate Gilda(ohio), Ate Kim(michigan), Geri and her wonderful son Evan(chicago), Ate Judy(chicago), most of all Lanie and her welcoming family, thank you for inviting me. You've made my weekend worth travelling. An experience that unfolds new friendship which I am truly honored to be part of. My Ate's. Other ladies that didn't come is no exception, Rhebs in florida and I already met when we were still leaving in Florida, she's the most honest and straighforward woman i've ever met online. No BS, my kind of friend btw lol. I will see you again soon.Darling(dallas), met her last September here in San Antonio. You are so much fun in person. Melody and Sandy(both from Oregon). I can't wait for our next get together so i can finally see your lovely faces. And our karaoke duo Melody is long overdue lol!

Till our next get together.........
