ants at work

One morning still drowsy from sleep, I noticed the exodus of tiny ants on the floor by the wall. Without a thought I squatted on the floor and gazed at the busy bodies. How sociable these tiny ants are! Whenever they meet their own kind, they'd stop and kiss each other. At least that's how it seems to me.

The time I idly spent that morning wasn't a waste. I learned important lessons observing the ants at work. I would love to share them with you but I'd rather let you discover them yourself. Why don't you do the same thing I did - watch the ants in action and maybe, just maybe, you'll pick up lessons from them.

the attack of insomnia

Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights, insomnia was my regular visitor. Even if I'm already very sleepy, I still find myself lying wide awake in the middle of the night for hours. What's happening???

I read the mental causes of insomnia, written there are stress and poor mental attitute about sleep. I think stress is the culprit in my case. Whenever I lie down, many thoughts would start to float and fill my mind. Arghhh! It says "Your concerns may make your mind too active, making it hard to relax." I wish I have a button which I can push to shut down these thoughts clouding my mind. I really want to sleep.

still breathing

Finally. We've eaten lunch, I've fed the baby, washed the dishes, cleaned the kitchen counter top, cooked for dinner in advance and had shower. Right now I am very sleepy. Afer posting this I'll head right to the bed. Laundry has to wait till later when I feel re-energized. Oh and then there's a movie waiting for me and hubby to watch too.

How about you? How's your Saturday so far?

*by the way, I made the header image this morning. thanks to for the fish graphics and for the paper.

What makes you happy?

Is it the love and care of the people close to you?
Is it the presence of someone?
Is it because you achieve something?
Is it because of the beautiful day?
Is it the smile on a baby's face?
Is it hearing your favorite song on the radio?

Happiness is a choice. Let us be happy each day even amongst the hardships of life, war, hatred or suffering around us.

smile at me!

She smiled at me! It's amazing how a simple thing such as a smile from a baby made me happy. She was gazing at me intently as if I was the most important person in the world. Nothing could be more wonderful than being looked up by the little girl sitting on my lap. You bet, she's my baby!

investing for our future

I was encouraged by my mom to buy a condo unit for investment purposes. Why not? The only question is the money. So after the pros and cons, I've decided to go on with it, with my hubby's approval of course.

I have to work real hard to be able to come up with the monthly payments. It will be a year till I am free from it. I hope everything will be alright, financially speaking or else. The current work situation looks gloomy but with faith and action, I pray I'll be able to succeed. Help me Lord!
