My Beautiful Mom in Chic Summer dress

Most of the time, Mother’s Day means a day with the family in the mall, eating out, breakfast in bed, or personalized crayon scribbled cards. This year, we had a different celebration. Different in the sense that all Mommies in the family (maternal side) were gathered together and celebrated Mother’s Day with their families…a grand reunion at the beach! It was a treat from our generous and loving Tita Melba. Thank you very much, Tita!

And if there’s one happiest Mom, it’s Nanay. She was in her chic black summer dress. She’s still beautiful at 62.

It was also the first time I see Mom laughing since her youngest sister died.

Sea Anemone

When we went to Manila Ocean Park RJ was so amazed with the colorful fishes and other sea creatures there but what called her attention the most is this one.


She cannot get her eyes off the aquarium and kept on asking me questions. Sea anemones remain polyps for their entire adult life and never transform into the medusa form as jellyfish do but this one is different. Amazing, is it not? It is just beautiful.

Life is Too Beautiful

What would you do if God gave you second life? You would treasure it and love it to the best that you can for sure. I hope that this is what my brother would do exactly when he gets well.

Last Sunday, I received a text message from my Dad informing me that our dear “Bunso” (youngest in the family) had a motorcycle accident. It was only yesterday that I got the chance to visit him and was shocked that the accident was really that freak. He can barely walk, cannot eat well because of the stitches in his mouth, his four front teeth were extracted, four front lower teeth were disaligned, he has wounds and bruises in the face, arms and legs. I cried upon seeing him. He has two back riders who got bruises too but my brother has the most severe injuries. What if something worst happened to him? How would the family take that especially our Mom? Click here is you want to see his pictures after the motorcycle accident.

Thank God my brother is quite better now. He is still lucky for God gave him second life and for that my family will always be grateful. Living a second life is the sweetest and most beautiful thing that could happen to a person. It is his chance to repent for his sins, to love everything he already has, a chance to be thankful for the things he has yet to receive, and his chance to be a blessing to others by doing things that are worthy in God’s eyes.

To my dear brother, you now have a plenty of time to make up for everything and do worthwhile things that you haven’t done. Love your second life as life is too beautiful to be wasted and lost in just a snap.

Father and Child

For me nothing could be more beautiful than this, my “mag-ama” holding hands while walking. Watching them fills my heart with love.

A father is respected because
he gives his children leadership…
appreciated because
he gives his children care…
valued because
he gives his children time…
loved because
he gives his children the one thing
they treasure most – himself.
