Ash Wednesday ~~

Today is "Ash Wednesday" ~ we attended the 5:30 mass and we've had our foreheads mark with ash cross.... "remember that you are dust and unto dust you shall return"

Growing up as a Catholic, it has been a tradition to go one to of these traditions. Ash Wednesday is the mark of the first day of the Lent Season and it is the day of repentance.

We are supposed to do a 40-day fasting and praying... it is going to be a challenge for us, especially having a 3-year old son and a 1-year old daughter.

I need to get the family together so we can do a reflection on those things that we've sinned in the past and we will pray for forgiveness.

"Lent is a time to ponder and a time to wonder" (from "Kneeling in Jerusalem" by Ann Weems)

As for the kids, we will try to make them learn the values of forgiveness, patience and love.

How about you? What are your Lent Season plans?

soo foggy on my way to work

It is so foggy on my way to work this morning. Soo foggy that you cannot even see the traffic lights not until it is right in front of you.

I just can't believe that there are so many drivers that don't have their headlights on. What?? Really?? Oh well, I would have been one of them if not for my husband telling me to turn on my headlights... ***blushing***

Anyway, it is such a relief to arrive at your destination safe...I drove really slow and sure...

Doomsday Preppers is affecting me...& my husband...

My husband and I were watching the new show "Doomsday Preppers" on National Geographic channel last night and it was very interesting and it is AFFECTING me and him...

The show is all about ordinary people that are taking extreme survival techniques when "something" happen.

Before watching this show ~~ we are okay, we were like if the world will end or if "something" will happen then "thy will be done".

After watching this show ~~ we are thinking of preparing for that "something" that is going to happen to protect ourselves and our family.

My husband and I will sit down and discuss this together with our family and friends this weekend. We will assess where they stand on this issue and where we are.

~~ then we will start the bug out checklist...

What about you, are you trying to get ready too? OR

You will just let "it" happen?

My Perfectly Imperfect?

I woke up today and greet my husband of almost 5 years a happy valentines with a kiss ~~ and he greeted me back with a kiss too...that's "it"!

really...that is "it".....

My husband and I have been together for 2 years before we got married, all in all we've been together for almost 7 years now, but we've known each other since we were kids. Within those years, we are blessed with 2 wonderful & beautiful kids ~~ a 3-year old boy & a 1-year old girl.

Life is beautiful with them but of course is not perfect ~~~ I love my husband so much that's why I could love him this time and could also hate him the next time...

He makes me laugh but at the same time he can also make me furious.

He makes me giggle but at the same time he can also make me gloomy.

He makes me smile but at the same time he can also make me cry.

He can please me but at the same time he can also annoy me.

He can lift my spirits when I am so down but at the same time he can also make me feel down.

He makes me excited but at the same time he can also make me disappointed.

He makes me happy and at the same time he can also make me sad.

That's my husband ~~~ I love him because he is "perfectly imperfect".

He is the person that makes me feel I am human because I am able to taste all those feelings. He is the man of my life...he makes me love him more every single day...

I would not trade him with anybody else, he is just "perfect" for me.
I would not ask him to change a single bit of what and how he is, he is just "perfect" for me.

Happy "V" Day to you "my perfectly imperfect" husband. :~)

Spring is in the Air

I can feel that the day is getting longer now... It used to be dark already when it is just 4:30pm, lately even if it's 5:00 it is still brighter and the sun is still to go down....

I just can't wait for Spring to come and have the kids play outside. There are a lot of things that we can actually do when the weather is warmer.

1) My son can go ride his bicycle while my husband and I walk with my daughter in the stroller.

2) Hubby & my son can play basketball at the backyard... while my daughter & I sitting in the swing watching them...

3) Bring the kids to the park and let them play.

4) Learn to play tennis with hubby --- for the nth time :(

5) Run every morning/afternoon for at least 3 miles.

6) Barbecue - with family & friends --- I just love to hang out and laugh.

7) Hubby & son can go fishing.

and the list can go on.....I am so excited for it....
