Blessings for Staying at Home

Staying at home is such a blessing for many moms who have decided to do so. I, myself, can say that I am blessed as a stay at home mom (SAHM) for more than 7 years now.

I could have pursued a promising career. I could have just asked the help of relatives to look after my children as is a prevalent practice in Filipino culture. But I did otherwise.

I am blessed in many ways as a SAHM. Let me share some of the blessings:

1. I am blessed for doing what God purposed for moms to do. A Jewish proverb says "God could not be everywhere and therefore He made mothers."

It's not that I agree that God is not everywhere. He is! The point is, He made mothers to fit into the special mission of caring for the family. As a SAHM, I'm able to use my full potential to fulfill this calling.

2. I am blessed for having the precious time to devote to my kids. It is such a wonderful feeling to be there to capture your child's first words, first steps and many more once in a lifetime moments.

To be there during my kid's formative years is so important to me. I get to instill in them the values and the faith that I hope to impart to them. This, I believe, is not the duty of the nanny, the grandparents or the school though they can be of help.

My children are only young once. There would come a time when they won't want to be kissed and hugged. There would come a time when they would want to be left alone, be with their friends and do their stuff. Better to enjoy them now and teach the moral values that they would hold on to when they are grown-up.

3. I am blessed to have some extra time to pursue my passions or hobbies. This I could not expect to do because of exhaustion if I'm working outside the home. As an example, I can blog; I spend time home studying Medical Transcription and take some Christian courses online.

4. I am blessed because God gave me a supportive husband. When he is around the house, he helps out in taking care of our 4 young kids. This factor of sharing the load should not be overlooked, because this contributes to a successful and blessed marriage relationship.

There are more blessings to being a SAHM which I have not written here. Feel free to add your blessings in the post comments. God bless you, mom!

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice.


When we came back to the Philipines, I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working.  Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time.

We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

My PureIt Excella Water Purifier Review

Last December, we bought a PureIt Excella water purifier at SM Megamall. After almost 7 months of using it, I can say that it was a good decision.

Why Buy a Water Purifier?
CONVENIENCE.

That is the primary reason I wanted to buy a water purifier. With a portable water purifier at home, I don’t have to ask my husband or my sons to buy mineral or filtered water at nearby water vendors. I know there are free home delivery services, but I think having our own water filter is still the most convenient. No calling. No waiting. No hassle.

The only question is which brand of water purifier should we buy? It’s a good thing we discovered …
