A Blessing by Choice

Been busy lately, and it's good to be back after a busy week last week c: It was my hubby's bday last monday (sept.22) the celebration was cut short because he had a flu :c he even refused to have a rest and absent from work. I had to scold him back to his senses :p

Friday I had to catch up with washing our clothes so I could prepare for Saturday. Because it was my mamas special day c:
Happy Birthday Mama ! ! !

I had to meet my parents at a mall in Marbel ( it's about an hour ride from our place). Surprised mama with a bouquet of flowers (lavender, pink and purple mumps coz those were her fav colors c:) She was so happy c: and so was I. We ate breakfast and lunch there to have a private party at a public place c:

We haven't met since June this year. Meeting them once a month energizes me and is essential to me because it also reminds me of how they did their best to be what I am today c: I want to make them proud by duplicating their love, care, love and respect for God and discipline to my own family c:

Meeting them brought both happiness and sadness to me. I can see how frail and sickly they have become. My mama has diabetes while my papa has heart enlargement. I just want to be by their sides but they gave up their comfort to build a church in Lake Sebu. They want to be a blessing to the T'Bolis (name of the tribes living there, featured them at my other blog) there with or without a support from our church. Tough for them and for me too, seeing them less provided by us their children specially for their medication. Nonetheless, I opted to give my best to provide them with medicine and supplies with the help of my brother too c: This will be my contribution to missions work not because I have to but because I want to. With God's help I can do all things c: Small is the amount I may give, still it will be a blessing to the ones who will receive it and all for...
the Lord's Glory c:

God bless you mama and papa for being a blessing to others c:
Am so proud of you both c:
The Lord shall reward your efforts with success!

Wow girl you have been busy!! Hope your hubby is feeling better! Your parents are so cute, I moved away from my parents this past March and it has been weird not seeing them as much! My husband only sees his parents about once a year, they live in Canada so it is hard for us to get up there allot.. Also, hubby and I are thinking of moving to Alaska, if this happens I will be lucky to see my parents once a year! Crazy to think about that...

yup,crazy life hehehe c: but enjoyed doing the this for my family it's worth it after seeing their smiles c:

it was hard for me not seeing them because i was the last one out of their sight like you i think? c: although am not the youngest because i had to finish my schooling longer due to transferring and lack also no the same course offer in the same place.

our family is tightly knitted too for that am glad c:

wow that's more tough seeing them for once a year haaa! i can't take that c:

Hmmm, im thinking of creating a blog with a tag line, "Just a daddy blogging about his gems" what do you think? but what am i going to name that blog? Duck Heart? just kidding! i'm just missing my son and my wife. Btw, why "Chicken Heart"?

hmmm well said iceah:

This "chicken heart" is not the typical faint-hearted or coward person but a lot different. "Chick" is the slang for pretty or sexy (desirable!) girl which is what I was before I got married (it doesn't mean to say that i'm no longer now). The term "chicken" came about after I gave birth to my first born (wala pang pangalawa ha, we're just planning to make one pa he he he..) “Chicken kana” was what Dadee (my husband) told me with a smile while looking at our Joshua Daniel the day we arrived home after a week's stay in the hospital.

And so I became a “chicken” loving my rooster and my boy chick.

isah liit
