Worrysome to Worryless

Dec 17, 2017 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: family, Health, Uncategorized

There are a lot of things which we do not expect but it’s really happening in us. Yes, accepting it can be very hard and painful. Things that you didnt imagine that you will also experience. I have encountered a lot of cancer patients/client in my everyday work as claims representative but never in my mind that my father would be a victim also with this monster cells. I have comforted all of them with encouraging words but when it comes to myself I realized that it so hard to deal with it. I feel so depressed upon knowing that my father has a stage 2 gastric cancer. It seems that our world has shaken. Tears is the only way to express how we feel inside. It’s so hard. After 23days in the hospital my father was discharged already and is now recovering at home. It is so painful to see that he is losing weight but I know he will be ok and regain his strenght soon. We trust God for everything. He already been with us since from the first day until now and He will be with us always in this difficult journey. His words are the only anchor that we hold on. Papa please know that we are with you in this battle and we will do everything we can to bring your energy back. Just keep on holding on to God’s promise that He will never leave us nor forsake us.

Bundle Of Joy

Nov 22, 2017 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: family, Personal

I am taking care of my 3 kids now. Two of them are of almost the same age. The one I did not anticipate was that it is a great problem in caring for them. Yes, my mother told me that in her years, she took care of her 7 children all by herself without a helper. I cannot imagine how my mother handled all the pressures and sacrifices. But in my case, maybe because I am a working mom and soon will be resuming to work. I am nursing my newborn 24/7 and I have a hard time taking care of my 1 year old which made me feel guilty as a mother. I am so much thankful for my siblings for helping me take care of my kids. My mother also is always available when I needed her when their titas are not around. In 3weeks time I will be resuming to work. I need to find a helper to assist my sister who will be taking charge with my 2 kids. I hope I can find one soon. I have a lot of things running in my mind now which made me overthink, my dad is in the hospital right now for an operation, a helper to find and I am afraid I wont fully breastfeed my baby when I resume to work. I can express milk in my workplace but time will come milk supply will not be enough for my baby’s demand and by that time formula milk will be introduced which mean another expenses to top of our budget. Well, having three kids with close age gap is difficult but despite of it all the joy that they are giving me is enough to sustain me every day.

Treating body odor

Apr 7, 2017 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: family, Health

Underarm odor can be, and how depreciating it is for our confidence, and affect the basic way in which you interact with others, who don’t forget that negative trait, and might make it more difficult to make friends or meet a future spouse. But sometimes some people are not “aware” or just “being used to it” that they would not mind, or not self conscious. But I know we can’t blame them for what their body is made up of. People with underarm (and foot) odors carry a stigma of being unclean, but we know that being clean will control odor only for a very short period of time. Daily activities can affect how much we sweat as well as the specific fragrance a person emits. Although heredity plays a role in your sweat factor, so do others like diet, clothing material and fit/style, hygiene, and health. The true solution to the problem is: instead of masking the odor created by bacteria, instead of trying to inhibit the growth of bacteria by reducing the amount of sweat produced, or trying to treat the bacterial byproducts which cause odor, eliminate the bacteria which cause odor and you eliminate the odor. Many suggest that for excessive underarm odor, try using a mild solution of hydrogen peroxide (3%) – cheap, effective, widely available. Put a teaspoonful in a glass of water and wash the underarm. If that doesn’t work, increase the amount of peroxide. Personal body hygiene, such as showering daily with deodorant soap washes away many strong odors caused by severe sweating. Wearing cotton clothing and other natural fibers also allows the skin to breathe, solving some odor issues. There is also new synthetic fabric clothing, often found in sports stores, that wicks away sweat from the body, thus preventing or reducing odor. Food is also a factor as they create a distinct body aroma, just like alcohol and tobacco do; they release unpleasant smells from the skin and the breath.

Family bonding

Aug 20, 2015 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: family

In our families, the time we spent, the moments we shared, the gift giving, our laughter’s, and even our cries, these experiences are treasured and valuable. These keep our relationship better and stronger. Yesterday we had our family bonding and we hold it at Gui gui restaurant and grill, a Korean restaurant and we got our discounts because the owner is my friend. It was a complete family bonding time because some of my sisters residing abroad, so much fun we had while eating. The food was so delicious and we chatted most of the time and try to share and remember our past especially when we were young, so happy, really happy because we are united again. We haven’t see each other for a long time. We miss them so much. Sad to say after few moments my two sisters are now on their way to Singapore and Africa for their work and life journeys, we don’t know if when would be the next time to meet again, just take care always and i love you all. Maybe five years from now or whenever, we don’t  know. Hope soon. What we just need to do and a must is to pray always with one another. One thing that made us proud with our family is, we are raised by our parent with good foundation and dedicated Christian faith.
