CC: Our Wishes

When Matt and I first got married, we were living in a one bedroom apartment close to his work. Neither of us wanted to live there long, and so after six months, we decided to fulfill one of our wishes which is to own a simple house bigger than the apartment where we used to live. We got what we want and we were happy for that. Five years later, we sold the first house and moved to the East due to his work. We lived there for a little over a year and then headed back to Texas for the same reason. Having used to live in a house, once again bought a second house after a year. We still are living the life we've wished for. We have a house, stable job, me staying home full time with the child we have been blessed with. We are happy!

There are only a couple of wishes we haven't gotten yet and they are good health, and enough savings for our son's education, mission and for our retirement. These are a long term goal since we are still helping my family financially back home. Maybe winning a lotto would grant the rest of our wishes, but how is this going to happen when we don't buy lotto tickets, lol? Oh well, with patience and great faith in God all these wishes will be able to come...in His time and term. My share for this week's.....

CC: What Have We Accomplished?

Oops, I think I have already mentioned the outcome of it on my last entry. Sorry, Liz :-). Anyway, as I mentioned on my last CC entry which was last week, hubby and I managed to live the life we wanted before we got married. We want it simple, but happy and comfortable. We didn't have many kids, but we got one (Ruth) and Jake...and we couldn't be happier. I used to work before Jake came, and now a stay at home Mom which is what we planned. Our life together is not perfect; we have had ups and downs along the way, but with God's help we survived them. We still have problems (health) to deal with and financial issue as a result of that, but we know that with God we can overcome it and we would still be happy despite of the circumstances.

CC: Glimpse of the Future

Before Matt and I got married, we talked about kids, me staying home, and him providing for our needs. We also planned on living a simple but happy life and both serving God in every possible way we can. Everything we planned happened, but one which was having more kids. Our only child gives us so much joy and we couldn't be happier. I believe in making plans and and working hard for the plan to materialize.

Another Busy Month Ahead of Us!

Another one busy day has gone. Thanks to my dear husband who never fail to help and support me with all my tasks. This morning, we got up early for my routine lab work after walking our son up to school. We arrived at the transplant center before 9am; thank goodness I didn't have to wait long for my turn to have my blood drawn. It took almost two hour before we got the result. Though my blood count is better than the last time, my doctor still ordered an epogen shot for me and then later today, his nurse phoned me saying I need to have iron infusion onec a week for the next four weeks starting Tuesday of next week. At this moment I can tell hat this month is going to be another busy month for us just like last month. With all this medical issue going on with me, Jake's karate lessons and school activities...no idea where would I get the strength to do them; just rely on God's help and guidance. When my son got home from school he excitedly told me that he had a great day school and been very good that is why his teacher gave him Hershey kisses chocolates as a reward. And I a check his backpack, I saw a birthday card invitations from his classmate. Damien is turning 7 this Saturday and he invited all his classmates. My son is very excited that he chose to attend the birthday party rather than his skating lesson. Oh well, this occasion doesn't happen all the time and so I have to agree. Anyway, I thought that the invitation is very cute. I wonder where would I get nice 1st birthday invitations that I can give to my friend who's daughter will be turning 1 year old before the end of the year. I better ask Damien's Mom where she bought her son birthday invitations.
