A Mother's Wish

When God gave me 5 beautiful children, He gave me more than I wished for.  Being a simple person, I desire nothing much for myself.  But as a mom, my greatest joy is for my children to be what God created them to be.  So, the prayer wish for this moment is not about me, it is about them.
Emmuel is a bit quick-tempered --
    May he learn self-temperance.
Yuan is way too shy --
    May he learn self-confidence.
Kristel loves to help housekeep --
    May she learn to love books, too.
Janel says sorry with ease --
    May she learn to mean what she says.
Angel is just a year old or so --
    May she enjoy safety exploring her world.

I have one more prayer wish that does not directly involve my children, but it will impact their entire future.
May the Philippine elections be a peaceful and an honest one
Where the will of God will prevail - not man's
May there be prosperity and economic recovery
A spiritual revival when Filipino hearts will turn back to God
Then in hopeful expectation, He will heal and bless our land.

Unless something radically changes in our present time, what kind of future will our children have?  Let's pray together for a more hopeful tomorrow for our children.

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 …
