Blue Moon

>> Sunday, September 30, 2007

Blue moon.. You saw me standing alone… Without a dream in my heart… Without a love of my own… Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for, you heard me saying a prayer for someone I really could care for… And then suddenly appeared before me the only one my arms could ever hold… I heard somebody whisper “Please, adore me”. And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold… Oh, blue moon, now I’m no longer alone, without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own…


A Fall Walk

>> Tuesday, September 25, 2007

The weather has been amazingly warm. This is global warming indeed. But I am not complaining. The gorgeous weather wouldn't keep me away from the outdoors. So the family went out and took a stroll at one of the beautiful Parks that Ontario can offer.

The colours of fall simply amazes me. There are just too many hues and variants of orange, red, yellow, brown and green. It is just a feast to the eyes. In fact, I was listening to the radio a while a go and these golden hues and earthy browns could just be the fashion colours of the season.

Don't you just love the crinkling sounds of the crunching leaves under your feet. As your shoes scrounges the fallen dried leaves, it just creates this aura of certainty, that life goes in circles. Where once these leaves where way up high in the tree, now it goes back to the ground and grows all over again. are some snaps from the afternoon walk.

Babies are not that breakable

>> Thursday, September 13, 2007

I wrote this article a few months ago in PMN (Pinoy Mom's Network) This was the original write-up I submitted to the editor. Check out the "edited" version, it is much better.

I have not had a chance to do another original contribution to PMN. Hopefully, I will find more inspiration soon enough.

If you are interested to join PMN and contribute some pieces, do visit them over here and find out how.

When I was a little girl, babies to me were creatures meant to torture their parents with crying for no apparent reason. As I grew older, I realized these babies had needs, either to be changed out of their soiled diapers or because they needed feeding. And as I entered maturity, I regard them as precious little ones, fragile and always in need of caring for. I remember well, how I would look at a child trying to take her first steps and how I wanted so much to hold on to her so she would not fall. I had this thought in my head that I would not be able to care for a child or even mother one since I am so afraid that they might break.

Reaching my late twenties, I thought of how my biological clock was ticking away. I had friends who were getting married and having babies. I wanted to have that too. So after a year into my married life, i was planning babies much to my husband's chagrin. My goal was to have a baby by 30. Well, not everything comes as planned. I was a year and a half late, I had my baby at the age of 31 1/2 yrs.

I learned that babies may be fragile but they are very adaptive as well. It is amazing how fast they grow. And through their growth there is so much to learn. From those sleepless nights for feeding or when that darn tooth is trying to break out or when a nasty cold is keeping her awake. Those shrieking cries in the car seat while your driving and those endless diapers that needed to be changed. None can compare with the smiles and giggles and laughter they bring. Plus that baby smell I can never get tired of. And just the feel of having someone so small in your arms that simply craves for such tenderness.

Oh what bliss and definitely all worth waiting my 31 1/2 yrs.

I daresay I would not mind doing it all over again. If my clock still allows me to.


My Desktop

I have the most boring desktop view. Dodong tagged me on this and I am supposed to give a snap shot of what it looks right now. I used to have a photo of a my daughter and occasionally I would change it to a nature scenery like a tree, a flower or the beach but I read somewhere that I should keep my desktop clean so my computer will work faster...and so I did

I decided to spiffy it up a bit and show off the pumpkins I took a picture of a couple of weeks ago from the pumpkin farm. And here's how it looks like now.
