September 5, 2016 – Rest day
What’s your “rest day”? Monday mornings are what I call my rest day. This is where I can blog and do nothing. Saturdays and Sundays are usually the busiest, even though that’s my off, but I have so many errands to tend to during that day so I still can’t rest that much. So thank God for Monday mornings, I can do the things that I want to do and rest before tonight’s shift.

September 6, 2016 – My “take the belly fats away” journey
For about a week now, I’ve been doing a few (and when I say few, just 5-10 mins) sit ups and easy exercises to take my belly fats away. This is still my post partum belly. I didn’t do anything about it. And now that Nate’s 2 years old already, I feel like I’m pregnant on my first trimester! huhu! So I decided I should start little by little. At least I have a year to take this belly fats away and look great when my husband comes home! haha. So wish me luck, I hope that I continue to do this and that I won’t stop what I started. I really hope. Sometimes the lazy me doesn’t want me doing it!
September 7, 2016 – My son taught me a lesson that caught me off guard
This happened last night. I can’t not share it! haha! I only had 20 minute to prepare to work so I hurried and ate my dinner. Now either I said a very short prayer that I myself couldn’t remember if I prayed or not, or if I really forgot to pray, I went ahead and ate my food.
Suddenly, Nate went to me and said:
“Mama, pray usa^” (Mama, pray first.)
I’ll be honest, I didn’t know what to feel or what to say! I stopped eating and said a prayer of thanks to God. Sometimes, when we’re too busy and we tend to hurry up on doing things, we forget to do the basics. I thank God for using my son to remind me to pray. It was a bit embarrassing to God and to Nate but I’m still thankful. 🙂
September 8, 2016 – Another lesson from Nate
Yesterday, migraine decided to attack me again and it was the worst! I felt really weak. I tried to drink Paracetamol to ease the pain but alas! nothing happened! Usually, Biogesic helps with it right away, it’s always been my first aid to migraine but yesterday was a different story.
While Nate was playing, he went and checked on me and asked: “Mama, you have headache?”. So I said, “Yes, Nate. Please pray for mama, my head is too painful”. He’s like, “sige (alright)” and immediately said a short prayer:
“Lord, thank you for mama’s head, amen!”
I chucked at my 2-yr old son’s prayer! But then, I realized, yeah, it’s true! I should be thankful! Even though I have headache, I still have a head! I’m still alive! 😀 This, I will never forget. I am once again reminded that there’s always a reason to be thankful!
September 9, 2016 – TGI Friday!
Others may be excited for a night out tonight but I am not. However, I have another reason to thank God today – it’s my last shift at work tonight! Yayy! Tomorrow’s my off, which means, I can spend more time with my son again. The simple joys of a mama! 🙂
How was your week? I’ll be happy to hear it!
