My First Award!

Special thanks to Betchay for passing this award to me. My very first award. I agree on being blogger addict. You blogger, keep blogging.. 🙂 I would also like to give credit to my sister who keeps on commenting about my stories but is invisible and too busy to blogs. Extending my heartful appreciation to all bloggers who share their honest and interesting stories too. This is my very first award, and this encouraged me more to write simple story of my life and hope to bring a little inspiration in this blogosphere. I am teary eyed right now, I just can’t believe of this award. All my life, the only consolation and reward I got is a kiss from my daughters at the end of the day of being a caregiving mom. Now, an addition to that recognition. My speech seems to be so long, did I get you bored? Come, celebrate with me, I have prepared something for this Pulitzer’s Award. Oh my, is this Pulitzer’s? 🙂 Yes! For me, it’s more than a Pulitzers.

graduation thoughts

this morning, i attended my daughter’s graduation ceremony. my daughter ranked number 14 out of 574 graduates of batch 09. she received a special award for acceleration where she finished elementary as fast learner for five years. i knew that everything is just a beginning. soon, she’ll enter into a secondary level and my part is to mold her and prepare her for more changes, challenges and demands that will come her way in her studies. my endless journey of being mom will never stop, i know i still have a long long way to go and so she is.

in the program, there was a part wherein the graduates offered their certificates to their parents, with this very touching song, “paano kita pasasalamatan,” i really dont know why tears suddenly came into my eyes and clouded my sight, oh God, No! hide away the tears! i can’t! so emotional again. she hugged and kissed me as i put her the graduation corsage.. what a.. :'(

was it really about 8 years ago when i first enrolled her in nursery? it was like yesterday when we’re in a bookstore picking her favorite coloring book and nursery rhymes. i just can’t believe that this coming school year she’ll be with other teens older than her age.

i am but the proudest mom..

hey my little lady, here’s a rocky road cake for you… hhmmmm, but i hope that it won’t be rocky anymore. listen, accept and face the challenges of life, no matter how rocky it is… 🙂

More on graduation…

the event was covered by GMA. one of her classmate, Isah, (the valedictorian of the class and known as the genius isah) was given an excellent award by GMA Network. here in this photo, the network requested to cover some part during their class session and this was taken after the grad. i just dont know when this will be aired. I actually have the clip but i opt not to post. I was behind the cameraman and took some videos of them.. camera rolling, roll camera, stand by, 5,4,3,2,1.. take 2, take 3… When i put flash on my camera, one crew looked back and wondered where that flash came from. I sensed that i disturbed them, so, I stepped out of the room. i may ask myself, did I? sure!.. 😀

batch 2009 accelerated class – einstein

Congrats Mai from all of us here!!

refresh

After few hours sleep, my baby looks refresh again.  She got few rashes  still  but they are now invisible. What she’s worried about is her vacation.  She was thinking on how she would spend her vacation because  she can’t play around.  She   thinks that she  still needs  two months recovery period like when she got sick last year.  She’s fine now.   She’s back into silly thing, but still a sweet darling..

My very special valentine..

Nothing is more special that spending valentine’s day with truly special..
