I am a bit early this year for the year-end recap, hahahah! I am probably enjoying my school break and been accomplishing a lot.
2019 made a great milestone in my life. The year was full of planning and dream came true for me and the family. The highlight was my Mom's 80th birthday and the trip to the USA. Met my brothers and their families and my Auntie Linda and Uncle Bill and my cousins to celebrate my Mom's Birthday. We visited Rhode Island, New York City, Washington DC, Delaware and New Jersey in 4 exciting weeks.
Although my husband was not able to come with us, I was just happy to bring the two boys to America and made memories with them. This was such a blessing for the whole family.
Chuy turned 15 this year and he grew so tall and really big after the US trip. He had a hard time coping up with school because of our trip, but he managed to catch up. Because he is a teenager already, he frequently throws sleepovers and weekend staycation with his close friends. He also survived his braces and soon it will be over.
Luigi continues to be a matured young man and I am just grateful for that as a parent. He drives well and would still sometimes sneak out with his Mommyla. The family business is under his name already and because of that, he was granted a multiple entry visa. I pray that he will be guided by the wisdom of the Lord always and would continue to be an obedient son.
We live thousands of miles away, one is in Dubai and the youngest is in New Jersey. We seldom talk but we make sure we are one in spirit. I am a lucky sister because my younger brothers are both kind, generous and thoughtful. They love my two boys as their own too... I miss them both. I just hope to pass on this happy relationship to my two boys and Pia, my only niece.
I survived a year of being regular in work and I enjoyed a year of health benefits. I thought of trying another industry or another environment, but my feet does not want to move forward. I already love the culture I grew up for 8 years. I just need to nurture and value the things that I have. I have a good team to work with and could not ask for more!
I have not scrapped a lot this year. I aimed to be more creative this coming year, more home improvement projects, more time in gardening, and more memory making moments.
Another year of blessings for me, Dodo, Luigi and Lorenzo. I always pray for the Lord's guidance and presence in our lives, more years of togetherness specially for my Mom, good health for the whole family and many more plane rides to be together with my brothers.
Life is really good! Thank you Lord for 2019... you never fail me ever.
Here's wishing you all
a meaningful celebration of our Lord's Birthday
a blissful 2020 ahead!
