In Everything Give Thanks

I caught my children's flu so I'm sick since last night. I can still remember the chill, headache and nausea. I heard myself saying "Jesus, Jesus heal me." I feel a little better now though I still have some dizzy spells. I entitled this post "In Everything Give Thanks" because in spite of the sickness there are a lot of things to be grateful to God for.
  • I'm thankful to God because when I asked my children to pray for me, they know and do, especially 3-year old Angel.
  • I'm thankful to God because my older kids volunteered to teach or tutor their younger siblings.
  • I'm thankful to God because as a work at homeVA, my employers were very understanding of my situation and gave me the time off though there are pending jobs to do.
  • I'm thankful to God because my husband is here to take care of me and the kids. He's actually jobless already for almost 2 weeks now and we're praying that he will have a new job soon or we will have to go back home to the Philippines. Whatever is the will of God, we will happily follow.
I have to end this short post now and get some more rest.  Thank You Lord for healing me. Thank You, Lord for my loving family and everything.

Hi, Chin!

I hope you're okay now. God is always on our side and we have a lot to be thankful for.

I was on medication as well for an infection. Couldn't do anything else but sleep, but I'm grateful that I was able to get a much-needed recharge.

Keep the faith. Where one door closes, a BETTER one opens :)

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
