PRAISE GOD!

My little child is peacefully back to her daycare school (newly renovated and more spacious playcenter) and GOD Has finally answered our prayers. As it is, GOD's timing is graciously blooming and I could only feel grateful awe and amazement for GOD's wisdom and mercy towards us. The LORDGOD has just put me in a very good position as an english teacher for a prestigious language school specializing in various languages (arabic, chinese, russian german spanish etc.) And that our workplace is about a quarter of an hour or less, from our residence.GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME. PRAISE GOD!

Computer Breakdown

Yesterday my computer gave an error report unmountable_boot_volume, maybe bec i turned it off directly at the power button or maybe due to its ancient-ness and low memory capacity it cant hold any bigfiles anymore or simply due to my stupidity and lack of computer knowledge. This is the reason why this site is less presentable today and I lost all the nice widgets I grabbed from other sites.

The Tree (that was)

Towards the end of winter, as per the ordinances of the Italian municipalities pertaining to environment upkeep, some environment workers (treecutters to be more precise) would come around to cut the high and wide spreading branches of trees. Last winter’s end they cut the branches of the tree in front of our kitchenwindow facing the garden, therefore allowing more light into our kitchen. Since then, this particular tree looked dead , pale colored trunk with the dry layers peeling off ugly, no leaves whatsoever. Then towards the start of summer I noticed small budding leaves, and each day saw the buds multiply a thousand times it seems and mature and the branches began sprouting forth in every direction and growing so that in a matter of time it’s returning to its old mighty self again. I realize that GOD is showing through this simple growth cycle of this tree that we should not judge basing on outward appearance. Like this tree that seemed dead and ugly, it was waiting for its…

Mom The Less

This morning is the first morning I took my 2 yr old daughter out for a stroll, after almost a week. Being a fulltime mother I try to do the domestic chores and fulfill motherly duties like taking my little daughter out for fresh air and change of environment, a time constrained daily routine I live. But since we had the internet connection installed last week, my time and attention for her is gradually being diminished. Two days ago her mealtime is altered, I let her sleep until past 10 am so I can dabble with internet, knowing that her regular breakfast is 8am. Consequently I had to adjust also her lunch and snacktime and so on. These last few days she sleeps at 12 midnight when she should be sleeping at nine. A day has passed without me giving her snack (fresh apple,milk & biscuits blended together).As it is, I'm awed at her level of tolerance which I didnt discover until this situation crept in.In that she would play by herself, sing (with gestures) in words only she and h…

Our 2004 US Trip

(I know this comes late..)A few years ago, GOD has blessed us with an opportunity to experience America, which stands true to its name ‘the American dream’I guess formost citizens of all world continents, even for Europeans. Our point of entry was the vast Philadelphia International Airport which is a city by itself, bustling with shops of diverse natures, foodshops and you name it. Then we flew off to our destination which is San Francisco which was home to us for a little more than a week. Naturally we savoured everything of the enchanting city by the bay from the fisherman’s wharf and crookedest street,the limousine ride (5 $ per head around the Union square downtown) , the Golden gate bridge(overlooking the Escape to Alcatraz prison ) we walked the entire stretch just because we didn’t know there was a service we can ---) the souvenir items Tshirts the most affordable and popular choice,pier 39 . the cablecar ride downtown, the white botanical garden. We also visited Disneyland Lo…
