Kurt Turns 8 Today!

Leave a comment

It’s my son’s 8th birthday today and the best gift ever is that he is already feeling well. Just few days ago, he was high with fever. His temperature almost reached 39 degrees Celsius. I even suspected him of having dengue so I had him checked by a doctor, and had his blood tested for CBC platelet count. It was a relief that the result turned negative for dengue.

Funny how my son blames me for his sickness because I didn’t allow him to bring his jacket to school the other day. Kurt always tells me that he feels cold when he is inside the classroom because of the air-condition.  So it’s my fault then that he got sick for not letting him bring his jacket to school? hahaha…oh my!

It’s amazing how time goes by quickly. My son is now 8 years old and I am turning old too? Geeee! Last week, before Kurt got sick, I planned that we will just dine out and maybe go swimming in the pool to celebrate Kurt’s birthday–good timing because his birthday falls on a Saturday. However, since he just got well, I think that there’s a slight change of plan or I better ask Kurty what he wants. For sure, if  i’ll ask him what he wants, he’ll surely say TOYS!

Happy Birthday Kurty!!!


You Need Not Find A Cure For Everything That Makes You Weak

First of all, I am glad that I am here again with my first post for this month of April after not having been able to blog for quite some time. It feels so good to be able to share my thoughts and insights once again.

Sometimes, I feel that a lot of things run through my mind. Maybe, I am just allowing myself to be drowned in a pool of thoughts which somehow cause me to drift away from reality. These thoughts somehow give me an overwhelming feeling   that often result in a state of bewilderment–I don’t know how else to describe it. I try to look for answers, uncover the truth, and find solutions to whatever I may be feeling and thinking lately.

As I was browsing online, I saw this picture with words that says “You Need Not Find A Cure For Everything That Makes You Weak.” I got struck by these words. I often feel that every time I fall trap into my own weaknesses, I always seek for things that would cure these anxieties.

It’s okay to welcome into our lives the bitterness of things that weakens us. Rather than trying hard to find for cure for things that make us weak, it’s better if we just try to strengthen ourselves and try to look on the brighter side–Perhaps, these things which make us weak would be the same reason that gives us strength to hold on– and I choose to hold on.
