Adjusting to a New Routine

It's a Sunday morning and the weather 's great! Some may be wondering why am I blogging at home on a Sunday morning instead of being in church. Our routine had a little twist beginning of 2010. Since James started Primary 1 this year, I felt that my life needed to take a change. I realized that routines and habits for our family needed to undergo some transformation to create an environment that is supportive of a boy who just went into formal school. I have come up with a list of the little sacrifices and some of the outcomes of it:
1. Church Day - we have been attending Saturday Church Service for the last 2 months. Not only to respond to the church' request but it is also better for the family. Rich and I now have one day a week to sleep in a bit (that is if the boys don't wake us up early). It has also become a time for the four of us to cuddle in bed sharing events and jokes. I have also made it a routine to teach the boys and do their homeworks. And the rest of the day is free and easy.
2. Week Nights - it's usually study time from 8-9pm. No more going out to unwind anytime we want to.  Gone are those days.....

To Be Like YOU...

help me
to be like you.
Kind and gentle
in every way.

I seem to be getting upset a lot these days. Over people, situation, kids, and anything minor. I've become sensitive to people's comments and remarks. I come home asking myself how did I react the way I reacted to a situation? Enlighten me Lord....

Sad... coz it marks the first month of the passing away of my dear brother-in-law...Bonny. He has impacted our family so much that even I could feel that emptiness knowing he will not be around on family gatherings anymore. I feel so sad for Richard who lost his brother so soon, and for my boys who cannot enjoy their funny Uncle anymore. They so looked forward to his visits....and presents.:) We miss you Bonny...


Happy.... for my sister who celebrates her birthday tomorrow. She is one superwoman...a loving mom to her 3 little ones, a supportive wife, a loyal sister and daughter and a good amazing lady.
