7th wedding anniversary :)

(Late wedding anniversary post)

I can't believe it was 7 years ago when I made that walk in the red carpet.I can still remember how I managed not to cry while walking. I smiled all through out while my husband sang a song he specially composed for that day. I was the happiest girl that day.  I dream of a beautiful wedding but God gave me more than that. He even chose the best husband for me.

Seven years. It's like we were only married for a year :) naks! honeymoon stage pa rin?

I love you mahal and I will always will!!!

My father's health is deteriorating. And for days now, I've been hearing  the phrase
"you should get your self ready"
"he's leaving you soon"
"you should give him all he wants now"

I know it is inevitable but how can someone be ready for the death of a love one? specifically of  a Father?

How can I say I am now ready and  I am prepared.
I can and I might say that... but it means I am lying because I can never be ready for that.


He was rushed to the hospital last Wednesday night. I hurriedly went home and just got back now. He was out of the hospital but he is not okay. Better maybe but not good. It was so hard to leave him and I've been crying.

But I am not losing HOPE.

Savings. Investment

 image source :

This year, we made a goal with regards to our savings, for the past few years we were not that keen in our savings and I regretted that (much). I don’t want to repeat the same mistake this year, that is why I made a savings goal. 

Twenty percent of our income should be in our savings (that is what I want at first) but since I am spending for my father’s medicines and doctor’s expenses I cannot afford the twenty percent yet. It’s okay for us as long as there is some penny going to that savings basket.

My plan is to invest it someday and make it grow. I just don’t know yet where and what to invest, am currently reading some investment tips in the internet and checking some food cart franchise but no definite plans yet. Investing can be risky and of course nobody wants to lose their hard earned (saved) money in just a blink of an eye. You can read more here about penny stocks if you are into stocks exchange which is a kind of investment too.

I really want to be financially free and able someday soon and I don’t think I’ll be in the near future if I will just depend on our monthly salaries. Thank God for the people who motivates me to really save and invest. 

Before, I spend every cent but I’ve learned my lesson now. Income minus tithes minus savings= money left to spend. That’s the formula I’m doing and I hope I’ll stick to it forever.

This is our wedding month  :) this year we will be celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary. Yay!! It's actually been seven years since we said our vows (in Tagalog) and I know we meant every word.

No anniversary plans yet because we will be in Davao for the Youth Mission Camp on the 21st which was our actual date, but I know I can pull something, I have the whole month of April to celebrate it.

And oh..first quarter of the year is now over, that fast I know. Three months gone, nine more to go.

Life for three months has been good, well, except for my ailing Father but still God has been good to us despite of that.

I'm expecting more blessings to come for the rest of the year and of course more for this month!!
