Ten Reasons Why I love My Husband (A Birthday Post)

It's my husband's birthday so I made this book containing the ten reasons why I love him. There are more than ten of course but this list is a good start to elucidate why I love him so much.

Thank you so much Alex for helping me get this wallet.

This year's presents for Beb.

Ten is a good start of the countless reasons why I fall in love with you over and over again.

I love you just because YOU are YOU but these reasons make me love you more.

With or without occasion, you always make sure to get something for me. You put my happiness over and above anything else.

I am not an easy person to deal with when I am sick but you never failed to amaze me how much you care for me in everything you do.

I lost count of the times you helped someone at the store because they didn't have enough money to pay for their stuff, or the time you stopped during winter to buy food for a homeless man, or the times we stopped at the side of the road to help someone whose car broke down.

I will be lost without you, Beb.

Without question, you are there by my side, in good times and bad times.

I don't need to put on a ton of makeup because I can be myself when I am with you.

I love how we laugh about EVERYTHING.

Michigan Irish Music Festival 2018

Thanks to the invitation of our friends, Randy and Heather, my husband and I experienced our first Michigan Irish Music Festival.

The festival was held at the Heritage Landing Park, Muskegon. 

The four- day event features live Irish entertainment in five large covered stages, from traditional Irish and folk music to contemporary Celtic rock to storytelling and Irish dance.

Heather and Randy, our kind friends who invited us to attend the festival. 

The best sirloin steak I've ever had! 

Traditional Irish beverage, cuisines, and arts are also available in different booths. In addition to different activities such as cultural presentations, there are two huge Irish markets where you can shop for souvenirs and other Irish merchandise.

Beautiful and kind Filipino friend. 

It was definitely another unforgettable experience spent with special friends! 

Michigan Irish Music Festival is a yearly celebration held at the city of Muskegon.

Be of Service for a Greater Cause

The world is bigger than us and the responsibility to make an impact to the life of others is way deeper than any moral principles. It’s been my ultimate dream to make a difference in the life of others but the desire and the realization is way more complex than words could ever describe.

However, my dream is going to be realized soon. For a month, I have been working on my online store. Initially, it was just the thought of doing something while I am working on building my website and page followers. Then, I realized that I could use it for something bigger.

So, today I decided that for every product purchase in my store, I will donate a Smile Kit for one child in an impoverished place in the Philippines. The Smile Kit will contain basic necessities such as toothbrush, toothpaste, and school supplies. They are simple things that we often take for granted in life but will have a significant impact on the life of others.

If you want to be a part of this simple project, please help me by visiting my online store, iPrint Sign Solutions. Ten percent of every sale goes to a child in need.

Reflection: Everyone can do simple things to make a difference, and every little bit really does count. –Stella McCartney-

Organize and Declutter (Day 6 of Thirty-Day Challenge for a More Meaningful Life)

Day 6. Organize and Declutter. Let go of something in your closet.

I read somewhere that attachment to material things create a void inside you. Letting go of a thing or two from your closet is the start of escaping the prison of materialism.

Good order is the foundation of all things. –Edmund Burke-

A visit to my walk-in closet and dressers made me realized that I have tons of clothes that I don’t wear anymore. As I organized, I made a decision of which clothes to let go. After hours of folding and arranging, twelve drawers, two ottoman storage, and a walk-in closet are more orderly. Simple actions that made me feel more productive and efficient.

Reflection: "Good order is the foundation of all things." –Edmund Burke-

Start your Day with a Prayer (Day 5 of Thirty-Day Challenge for a More Meaningful Life)

The power of prayer is undeniable.

In the busy world we live in, a meaningful life is as elusive as ever. Imagining a life which has vitality, substance and contentment is getting harder because of the overwhelming materialism that surround us. Sometimes, a gentle reminder to start your day with a prayer is all that you need to start a meaningful day.

I lost count of the times that God made a difference in our life because of prayers.

Day 5. Start your Day with a Prayer 

When I was teaching in Indonesia, I used to start my day reading a Bible with my husband who was here in the United States. Prayer continuously plays a vital role in our relationship but life could be overwhelming sometimes that we only get to do it before going to sleep or before eating dinner.

A prayer before starting that day is a humble way of asking God to show me which way He wants me to go. It is also a beautiful reminder that I am as fallible as ever and only God can complete me. If and when I fall on this day, I know that the prayer I uttered for the day is enough to strengthen my resolve to stand and live the day as a child of God.

“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayers is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.”
