Seeking Purpose

Lately, I have been in a lot of challenges and trials. I have been trying to look at the positive side of the situation and I am always able to come up with something. However, last night while praying… I had an epiphany, I finally realized why I am going through tough times. I remember praying to God multiple times asking Him to increase my faith in Him. Lastnight, I came to realize that the only way He will be able to increase my faith is to take me to difficult times. It felt amazing! I am in awe… There were times during the past few months when I question why is this happening to me and after almost 1 year I finally got my answer.

Now, moving forward…I need to continue this journey. The journey of always giving Him back the glory of everything I do. After all, all I have is His. It is right and appropriate to give Him ALL the glory.

Laying Low

I have been laying low for awhile. It has been almost a year since i last posted something. Covid-19 was too overwhelming for me especially since i witness a lot of my patients die everyday. It was stressful and very much traumatic for me. Going to work, hoping that the dying will stop and being disappointed every time was very very scary and depressing.

I never imagined seeing people die that quick and that many in a few days. I have never been this stressed in my life.

All of the stress is slowly subsiding and is overcome by strength, hope and faith that everything will be better one way or another.

Now, i am back to the blogging world. Slowly, i will get back to writing — this time i am ready to share my struggles during the year 2020.

I know u also have your struggles, someday u will be brave enough to share your victory.

Peace and stay strong friends, we will be victorious in the end…

LESSONS LEARNED OF AN 8 year old vs 4 year old

This is my son’s 2nd book. He made this and include his sister in the book.

They want to make a difference in the lives of other people by donating their proceeds to NO KID HUNGRY….They claim that this is their mission on Earth…

I am thankful that at a very young age they realize that helping others is essential in the human life….

Kid talk about Happiness

As i was getting ready for our dentist appointment, my 4 year old daughter made this comment..

Daughter: mom, why can’t God give happiness to all the people?

I: what do u mean?

Daughter: well, if everyone is happy on earth then we will have no more quarrels, no protests….it will be a very beautiful place, everybody will be helping each other…

I: yes, true but we need balance…. That is why we have happiness and sadness, goodness and badness….

Daughter: right! We just have to be able to know what is right from wrong….

Kid talk about purpose

While i was brushing my teeth, my son just started talking to me about this…

Son: mom, everyone on earth matters….

I: that is true…

Son: i believe the each one of us on earth has his/ her own purpose, we might not know it but we have….

I: yes….

Son: i think even if u are not famous– u still have a purpose…u could be an ordinary person doing ordinary things, u still matter and u have a purpose….u might not realize yet but every action matters and affect earth….

I: in every action, there is always a consequence….

Son: yes, so that is why we have to be aware of our actions because there will be consequences all the time…..

Kid talk about PERSPECTIVE

My 8 year old son recently published a book entitled COVID 19 PERSPECTIVE of an 8 year old and he is happy about it.. This is one of our conversation lately…

Son: maybe i should publish another book about my perspective of life or money…

I: u do what u think is easy for u…

Son: oh no, it is both easy because there is nothing difficult in making another book… People find it difficult but it is their perspective…

I: right! It is ur attitude towards the situation…

Son: yes, it is about ur attitude AND REACTION about the situation….

Kid talk about Trees

My daughter is showing some wisdom at an early age…here is one of our conversation over the weekend…

Daughter: why do people cut trees?

I: Well, u know why…People needs it to build houses/ buildings/ toys…

Daughter: Oh, yeah! But i feel bad for the trees, they have feelings too…What about the animals that lives in the trees? Some animals depend on the trees and if u cut it, the animals will go homeless…

I: Yes, they will find another tree to live on…

Daughter: Yes, i guess U are right! But it is hard to be homeless especially with the coronavirus…Remember? In the news? Those people who are homeless who has no food to eat and no place to live? They cant just go to another house because they dont have any. I think it is the same with the animals too. After all, they are living things just like people….

Kid talk about staying at home

I : we have to stay home for an indefinite time…

Son: why? Because of the virus again?

I: yes, we have to make sure that we stay here in the house, i know u want to go out and play with your friends…

Son: it is ok, i can play with them next time, i understand– we have to follow to save the earth…

I: thank u, i thought u will be sad with this news…

Son: oh no, i am ok…i am ok being home– i will do something that will occupy myself…don’t worry about me…being home is nothing compared to being sick….

Kid talk about his new book

Son: how is my book? Did somebody buy it?

I: yes of course, some of my friends are saying that they got teary eyed reading the book.

Son: oh, i didnt intend for them to cry or get sad…

I: it is ok, it means that they were really touched by the book..

Son: that is cool but if u think about it, some kids may feel differently than me, i feel for those kids who are older than me, i bet they are more worried and sad…if your older — u think deeper than the very young kids…

I: i guess u are right….

Son: this is really sad but we just have to focus on the lessons we learned from this virus….
