Can extract sunshine from a cloudy day!

Join the great company of those who make the barren places of life fruitful with kindness. Carry a vision of heaven in your hearts, and you shall make your name,your college, the world, correspond to that vision. Your success and happiness lie within you. External conditions are the accidents of life, its outer wrappings. The great, enduring realities are love and service. Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulty. ~ Helen Keller

Good Friday Afternoon 2016

 A day after Easter and I'm only just now in the mood to celebrate!
Make that a week's celebration for me! An inner travelling to parts within to re-pump, re-light, re- charge, re- align, re -new, relieve, re-order, re- fresh and remind myself that "God is in control"and that the part of me that nobody see's - that part which trembles and fears still as that seven year old in a dark hallway did, she needn't wobble in fright anymore. She's come thus far, in spite - supported, sheltered, cared for and held, sniff!  So drama, ew, lols! :D 

O I lurvs this picy of me below! It look as if I'm in a state of soporific elation. Fact is, I was having an *allergific* moment so evident by my more pronounced than ever darky rings which no amount of concealer could decently blot out. My head was in a tight band pressurized state, my eyes pulpy, and my facial feel was so icky'prickly I swear if touched, my hands would come off with spiny needles!

It was a Good Friday moment on my own with the hubby shooed off to the gym and the boys wherever they were at this time! So there I was, part of me missing my bestie' friendship who now resides overseas. It would have been one chatty silly phone call if she were around. Time zones are in play and life is different now, so nothing left to do but think about the past. Drama' hahaha!! Where I'm seated is nostalgic because we had a great chat here one evening a week before she left.

Ah' yes, times, they are a' changing so fast. I know there are even more changes in store -  keeping positive about this even if I'm  feeling a bit riled up.

And here's that book I was reading while  having my "moment"...Almost done and I can't put it down. Anita Shreve books should really be turned to movies as I swear, they're all riveting! . This one here is about a young American  husband and wife living in Africa. The wife speaks in the story - one can just feel the shakiness and bravery she puts upfront. Much like real life. Yes, so much like real life.

Super Fun HK Family Trip

A few odd days after my super uneventful 48th birthday (lols!) we went to Hong Kong for a quick but wonderful fun filled family bonding! Ah, respite, thank you good Lord! it was something I thoroughly needed because the past week thereof, was a wild racket of stressy days, lols! :D
I can smile and laugh now, but goodness, my youngest fell ill (so near to the planned departure) - which required an insistent nervous trip to the ER, whew! - AND, me, o' well, I was plastered heeing and hying with seasonal allergies that  lent my head achy  pressured and my eyes swollen.  The hubby was overseas all the while this mini chaos was dastardly unfolding,  I was left to hunker and make brave on my own. Now my sons aren't -  kids,
hah! No, egads! But no matter how old your child is, the same heartbeat worry of their childhood sickie days gushes through your veins and it's all warrior mama mode, no matter what!A mom will always worry and take charge 6 or 60, hahaha!

It wasn't anything seriously -> serious, but the fact that we were looking forward to celebrate my birthday out of the country, and with one possibly left behind magnified my anxiety.

Faith I'd say, full blast faith saw me through! Dear Divinity - the good Love Lord pulled through, pulled though, pulled me through. I'm humbled, truly humbled in gratefulness!
