How to Spend your Vacation
For working parents, time off from work is precious. A chance away from the office and setting aside tons of workload means having a taste of what really matters in life. The moment I step out of the work place, coming home to my family is my top of mind. And what is sweeter than hearing the kids chanting Mommy, Daddy? Seeing them smile? Well, God is really a generous God because He gives hardworking and loving parents a chance to savor those moments more. Tomorrow is a start of a long weekend and I am super excited and grateful.
This Holy Week, just like the previous ones we shared as a family, we hear mass at Saint Joseph's Shrine at Aurora Boulevard, Project 3, Quezon City.
This is also where we hear mas every Sunday and where we send mass offerings on important events in the family. Both my sons were baptized here too. Beyond the silent walls of this church are religious milestones I have witnessed in my children. By patience, love and optimism, my kids learned to sit down and hear mass. At their tender age, they appreciate the teachings of the church.
My late Lola thought me to pray the rosary and I thank her for that. My children are too young to learn this but hearing them say their prayer before meals and going to bed is wonderful. Prayers serve as fuel to keep our communication with God going strong. The act of praying calms us and gives us hope in our daily lives.
is Heaven here on Earth! Having a family to spend vacation with. Even if often times affording an expensive tour is impossible... Simple moments fills the heart with so much joy.
Have a blessed week everyone!
