Grateful to the Lord

Pinay Mommy Online is celebrating her first blogversary and she's asking those who are joining her giveaway to share about what they are thankful for last 2010. Since I'm joining her giveaway, I would like to take this opportunity to express how grateful I am to the Lord for His blessings in 2010 (not that I haven't thanked Him yet but I haven't really penned them in this blog).

The first item on my thank you list is for my mom's recovery.  She had a really unexpected heart attack last November and had to undergo angioplasty (a surgery wherein a tube was placed in her heart to unblock an artery).  Aside from being grateful to the Lord (also to family and friends who helped) for the provision for the cost of the surgery (more than half million pesos), I really am grateful that my mom is feeling better now. After the surgery, she's breathless after just 3 steps up or down the stairs. But now, I think she's getting much farther than that.  I really can't wait to see her when we go home to the Philippines in two months.

The second item is the health of my family. All of us are doing okay with our health though we were not spared from some cold and coughing especially during the changing in the seasons but still all of us are doing fine. I also had my first executive check-up which included electrocardiogram, mammogram, blood testing, lung x-ray, and abdominal ultrasound. Thank God all systems check are clear.

The third item is the progress of my children in school. Though they are not included in the top 10 of their class but still they are among the cream section. And what's important is that they are learning a lot. I'm especially happy with how my 2 daughters are doing in school. It is their first time in school this year and they are coping well.

Lastly, I've already shared in a post my  Income from Home in 2010. Last year was really the first time that I worked online and earned something. It was good timing and blessing from the Lord since last year there were quite a lot of expenses in our family mainly my sister's recital and my mom's surgery and medications.

God is really good! He is our provider, our healer, our comforter, our friend. He knows our every need and His timing is always perfect.  If we only "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, then all these things (that we need) will be added unto us."  To God be all the glory and honor and thanks!

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).

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. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
