I want to go out now, away from this busy city, away from the crowd…away from my friends and family. I want to be free from my kids’ cries and covering my ears and hiding from this dark room doesn’t seem to be of help. Oh I love my husband and my kids and leaving them doesn’t come to my mind. I know it sounds crazy for a mother like me, but I want to go somewhere in which only the birds humming and chirping be heard as they are like music to my ears; where no other human being exists. Where the falling of dried tree leaves make its soft noise, where the moist of fresh morning dew will touch my tired body, where the blow of the unpolluted air carries away all my worries. Just for once in my life, I want sometime alone. My “me” time; not to think of something else but to release all the thoughts that haunting in my head…
Shall I try yoga then? I should. Soon. Maybe.
To the most beautiful, pure, loving, divine, sacred and blessed mother of all…happy birthday Mama Mary! I adore and most of all love you.
Prayer to the Most Holy Virgin Mary
Most Holy Virgin Mary, appointed by God to be the Help of Christians, we choose you as the Mother and Protectress of our home.
We ask you to favor us with your powerful protection. Preserve our home from every danger; from fire, flood, lightning, storms, earthquakes, thieves, vandals, and from every other danger.
Bless us, protect us, defend us, keep us as your own, all the people who dwell in this home. Protect them from all accidents and misfortunes, but above all obtain from them the most important grace of avoiding sin.
Mary, Help of Christians
pray for all those who live in this home which is entrusted to you.
Oh Mary, powerful Virgin, great and illustrious rampart of the Church, wonderful Help of Christians, terrible as an army drawn up in battle array; you alone overcome every error in the world; in anxieties, in struggles, in every difficulty defend us from the enemy and at the hour of our death receive our souls into paradise. Amen
The start of summer would only mean one thing, it’s school summer vacation. Yey! Finally another year is over and I can now relax and take some break from morning rush…preparing the kids for school, their lunch box and what i hate the most is waking up so early before the cock crows. oh well, that one didn’t happened as no cock’s available in dubai except for the other thing. hehehehe!
Another school year has ended which marked who and those who didn’t performed well in class. Since my 3rd grader has a history of getting awards and medals every year, i am not surprised when my husband told me the news that my kyle got the second honor aside from the 3 awards. She made it again, felt good which eventually turned into a great great feeling when kyle told me that her dada was just telling a lie. She isn’t the 2nd honor, instead she is the 1st. She makes us proud again…always.
The big day has come and while walking up to the stage, i was trying to hold back the tears. I cried because i really am so proud of her achievements, getting the 1st honor, Best in Reading, Best in English, Best in Science and Best in Civics. Our effort has paid it off.
I have to admit that sometimes, she disappoints me when things turned out the opposite of what I am expected of her. Whenever I see a low score in her quizzes or exams, I used to asked her why, a countless why’s and keep reminding her that i am not happy seeing her score like that. For me, it should always be a perfect score. Am i bad or just so mean to her? Either way, the credit belongs to her. She deserves all the award for doing her best…
congratulations ate kyle. we love u so much.
