Mommy and His Boys

Since I always hold the camera, I seldom get a photo of myself and with the boys. So one rainy afternoon, while doing nothing and just watching the rain, I asked hubby to take a photo of me with the boys. So here it is:

mommy and the boys

Ssshhhhhhh… we still haven’t taken our baths when this photo was taken! LOL!

I guess when you are in love with your boys, you always take photos of them and just forget about yourself, and I guess that’s what they call being selfless. These boys mean the world to me. I thank God for choosing me to be their mom, even though I have shortcomings, I am doing everything I can to be a good mom.

I hope to be able to train them in the way they should go and that they will come to know the Lord and serve Him too. With all the worldly temptations, I hope they will be able to do what is right and pleasing to God all the time. I hope I can impart that to them. It’s really not easy being a mom. But with God’s help and His word, I hope they grow to be the men God wants them to be.

Bistro Sets for the Yard

I have always wanted a bistro set and place it in our front yard. There are times that hubby and I would love to sit under the shade of our trees and watch the world go by. There are times too that we would like to enjoy our afternoon drinks or have some snacks outside and talk of our plans and life in general. So as a result of my wanting, I checked out and I did not regret doing it. I found very nice bistro sets in the website and was really enticed. I could not help but be tempted to buy because I know it would really be perfect for our front yard.

What do you think of this set?

It is a lovely set, isn’t it? I love the contemporary feel to it and the two other chairs can be used by our little boy to sit with us and enjoy his snacks too. 8)

I have seen sets like this too at the malls here but they were a bit expensive and with so many other necessary things to buy, I guess this will have to wait. For how long? I still don’t know. Maybe when everything’s a bit okay and our wants can already be ticked off our list.

Gourmet Anniversary Gifts

Last month, hubby and I celebrated our 8th year as married couples. If my memory serves me right, we have known each other for twelve years now. Our anniversaries have been celebrated very simply and there were times that hubby got gourmet anniversary gifts for me. Being together for twelve years now, he has given me nothing but pure love, affection, kindness, understanding and care. I am just very thankful to the Lord for He has given me a blessed man.

During our last anniversary, we just had a simple dinner in one of our favorite pizza restaurants and then went out to the bay and watched the sunset with the little boys. I did prepare a gift, but we haven’t used it yet. Maybe two months from now, we will be able to avail of it. I have also saved up some amount to buy him new shoes and pairs of pants. But then I guess hubby will have to wait a little longer now, since next month, it will be Baby Job’s first birthday and we will have a little celebration too. Anyway, I hope he still can wait for those shoes and pants… 8)

But sometimes we do not give gifts to each other, just the mere presence of the other one is a gift itself. More than that, our love for each other is priceless and precious than any silver or gold.
