JusT AnoTheR Day

Since everyone knew how I liked American Idol, my favorite gal made it last night. She had an amazing voice and I knew she will make it. But for that, hail to the voters!!!
It's just kind of funny though because other mothers like me who have a 5-month-old baby were staying awake during the night because their babies won't let them go to their happy land, but me, I stayed wide awake because of the Filipino Channel...My hubby thinks I'm so funny. I just make sure that I won't wake him up during the night since he goes to work so freakin' early everyday.
Today is just a boring day for me. I've done all my chores and there's just nothing to do. It's cold out about 28 degrees F out and who wants to get cold. I thought, winter will be over since we were blessed to have a week of sunny day. As in the snow melted all the way. The roads were totally bare from snow and it's just an amazing sight not to see any white at all. I still hate snow, I hate winter. Thick clothes, thick coats, boots and just everything to keep me warm. It's so heavy and I really hated it. I just can't wait for the day to come and would make me say..."Thank God it's summer!!!"...
On the other hand, it makes me happy to see my BBBox almost full. I can't wait to send it to the Philippines next month. There's a lot of things that I am still thinking to get but if I can't though, there's always the next time. Anyways, we will be going back next year. And also, I still have another extra box kept at the storage to be ship anytime.
I missed Philippines so bad. Missed the humidity, missed the people, missed everything. I mean, other people would say, how lucky Filipinas to get here in the United States. To be honest, I never had any plans of going here or marry an American. It's just maybe, it's my destiny. I mean, it is also my choice by all means but the choice I made led me to my destiny. Maybe it's just it. It's God's will, and I make it happen.
Well, I'm blessed with beautiful kids. Motherhood indeed is such a beautiful thing. I used to be the one asking for something to eat, clothes to wear, and toys to play. But now, when I hear my boy asking me for something, it's the best thing that a mother will ever feel that you can give your kid something that you can give. It's like they depend on you for everything. And when they look at you on your eyes and say "I love you Mama", it feels like your heart will stop beating and all you can do is pick them up and hug them as tightly as you can. That's why I just couldn't stop crying last night when I remembered my Mom. I missed her so bad. It's not going to be long, I will see her again!

Nothing else can comfort a homesick heart but the presence of our family, especially our mom... I know coz I just experienced it. I am so glad we got to go back to the Philippines to see my family coz I really missed them so much. But then, the problem of seeing them again is, when you come back to the US, it's like you're starting all over again... you will start missing them again the way you did when you first came here last two years ago... it's sad, but reality now for us who chose to marry Americans and to live halfway around the world... But you have a wonderful hubby and lovely kids, and they are a blessing beyond compare! :-)

We're having a cold day here as well... not as cold as there but cold for Houston! I can't wait for summer to start. Give me warm days anytime and I can handle it better than cold days.

Great posting, Angel! I love reading your blog. Have a great weekend!
