Counting My Blessings

          It's one of those days when I feel overwhelmed with the challenges in life. Well, like anything else, this too shall pass. So I am posting this to remind me that whenever I get overwhelmed with the challenges in life, I just need to remember to count my blessings... The things that really matter...




... and we have a roof above our heads. Our own! It's not a mansion but  just right for us. And it's in a village that does not flood.


That I had an easy pregnancy and that I gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby girl


That everyone we love is happy and well. Everyone on my husband's side...


... everyone on my side,



...That my grandmother is healthy and well!


I have awesome and loving in-laws!


And of course I have the best husband anyone could ever ask for!

I love my family!





Oh, and we got to go to NYC care of Oreo Philippines,and got to visit the apartment building of FRIENDS. Yes, it matters! Hahahah!


Thank you Lord for everything! :-)

    1. Thanks Michele! Yes my husband is really sweet :-) I'm sure you will go there soon! :-) Felt like I was in a dream too! Like I was in a huge tv show set! Most shows / movies I watch over and over are set in New York kasi haha! FRIENDS, Sex and the City Movie I and II, and You've Got Mail in particular hehehe :-) So lahat ng buildings dun talagang na-star-struck ako haha! Even the apartments with the stairs in front tuwang tuwa nako haha!

  6. You are indeed blessed, Rina. And I feel that it's your "Attitude of Gratitude" is what's keeping that "Gate Valve of Blessings" open. :)
