Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, what plans do you have with your hubby and/or kids? My husband and I don't really celebrate it because of practical reasons like traffic jams and packed restaurants. And if we were to go on a date, we have to bring the kids since they don't have a nanny. It's going to be a very ordinary day for us. But, I have been bitten by the love bug and decided to do something for Valentine's. Not a grand romantic gesture, though, I made a cymple Valentine's Day card inspired … [Read more...]
Is Disney's Frozen still hot in your home? It is in ours! We still sing the songs from the movie. Yes, I am included! :-D It was Ella's Christmas program in school that day. She's the adorable Christmas tree in the middle. My hubby Rix took photos and videos while I watched on with our two younger kids. Afterwards, we had lunch at Shakey's. Spaghetti, chicken and mojos, anyone? I love family moments like that! And what made it even better was when Rix declared we were going to watch Frozen in … [Read more...]
Happiness And Joy, Cymplified!
Happy new year! So sorry for the late greeting. Wishing you all happiness and joy! Happiness to nourish your soul, and joy to nourish your spirit. More joy, though, to get you through the trying times you might encounter. 2 Corinthians 8:2 (NIV) 2 In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. James 1:2-3 (NIV) 2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that … [Read more...]
While They’re Little, Cymplified!
Even if they are being so demanding most of the time, and if they do not quite understand what I'm saying or what I want to happen, I would still want them to stay little for a long time. I kind of dread the time they become older than 6 years old. I feel like I have so little time to mold them and lead them to Jesus before they go out to the world, or to school. There are so many things I want to do with them while they're little. Can I enjoy them as cute, chubby cherubs for a longer … [Read more...]
Cupcake Dilemma, Cymplified!
It is always such a treat to receive something sweet. Being a food photographer has its perks, too bad he cannot enjoy it because he doesn't care for cakes and chocolates. And that made his wife giddy! :-P These cupcakes were the inspiration for my fun poem called My Pretty Cupcake. I was pondering on how to eat a cupcake without getting my lips and hands super sticky. What a weird problem to have, right? Do other people have a cupcake dilemma like this? Apparently, this has crossed … [Read more...]
Banish Boredom, Cymplified!
I think that more than hate, one thing that would be detrimental to a relationship or end it altogether, is apathy. Apathy happens when a husband stops showing his wife his appreciation through words and actions and vice versa. Apathy happens when a stay-at-home-mom gets tired of the doing the same things every single day for her family. Apathy happens when a child doesn't want to talk with his parents for fear of being scolded. Apathy happens when boredom settles in. I am currently reading … [Read more...]
Creative Soul, Cymplified!
I could relate with @iamaimeediego when she said in one of her posts that she had a creative itch but didn't know how to express it. I feel like I am stuck in a creative funk lately, but I am not currently working on anything. I feel like I should be creating something: poems? painting? crafts? I used to think that I have a creative soul, although I am all thumbs with crafts and gift-wrapping But seeing other people create something beautiful, something people like instantly, well, it just … [Read more...]
