The Bighearted Family

Two hours ago my sister called, she informed us that they already arrived in Calgary, Canada. Thanks God because they were at home safely. My sister with her husband and children were here for a short vacation. Their planned was going here by July but because my mother’s condition wasn’t better for the past months they decided to come over as soon as possible. Everyone is excited for their comeback after 3 years but time flies because their vacation was over and though it was only for less than a month, I’m sure they were very happy reunited with us after long years of staying in Canada.

Their family is the best. They have been very generous ever since. I pray that God will continue shower many blessings to my sister’s family. I don’t know how to express my thankfulness for all the things they did and bestowed especially to me and my daughter.

I won’t think of my daughter’s school bag this coming school year. My sister already bought. I hope it would last for three years or more because it was pricey. One my nieces bought her two pairs of shoes and I got new bag. Another niece left to me her old Samsung MV800 digicam. I told her that I have planned of buying digicam and hearing my words she said hurriedly  that she will give her used camera. Another niece gave me an old Samsung nexus. They provided our foods everyday and even before going back to Canada, my sister went to market to buy our foods for a week. Actually, there are many things they gave to us and they didn’t ask for anything in exchange. They are such a bighearted family. Truly we are blessed to have them in our family. I pray that God will guide and bless their family abundantly.

Package from Canada

My sister and her family from Canada are here in the Philippines for three weeks vacation. The initial planned was going here in July because its vacation in Canada but it was changed. They decided to come here now because of my mother’s illness.

Last January they sent us package and arrived first week of March. We didn’t open the package because we package photo balikbayanboxes_zps47de885f.jpgwere waiting for my mother’s discharge from the hospital. We never thought her confinement will last more than two weeks. This is the reason why my sister and her family decided to come home for a short vacation.

We were happy and blessed because my mother has been discharged from long days hospital confinement two days before my sister and family arrive. March 28, they were here and we hurriedly opened the two boxes of package. Thanks to my sister and her family for all the stuff for me and my daughter. Your family is the best and I know God will bless you more for being so generous and helpful.

Using the adjustable foam wedge helps relieve back pains while it assists patients breathe normally and get better sleep every night.

Parentgiving’s website is full of products especially made for our aging parents. Our parents may not be very vocal about their needs but some signs of discomfort and pain are easily noticeable.

We received package

We received package from my sister. She is living in Paris, France with her family for more than 20 years now. She was worried because she assumed the package will arrive last month (May). Well, finally her package arrived safely and still well-packed. I heard rumors that some of the packages are not arrived in safe condition and sometimes one or more contents are missing.

Anyway, just like the previous packaged we got. Delivery man took a photo of my mother together with the package as proof of delivery. My mother asked why the package arrived so late. Delivery man said it’s not easy to pull out something in the customs and need proper documentation. When the delivery man left, my mother opened it right away. Inside the box are used and new clothes, chocolates, shoes and more. My daughter is very happy seeing her new toy doll with accessories.

Well, this is one of the advantages of having relatives abroad. I know my sister worked hard just to send us all those stuffs in the package. I am thankful because I have sister like her who is kind and generous. Just like my other sister who is residing in Canada with her family too.

Prayers and love are the only things we can repay them.

Boots for my brother

Almost everyday gasoline has price hike so instead of using the car my brother prefers to use his motorcycle. In this way he can save a lot because motorcycle doesn’t consume much gasoline. Aside from that he can avoid traffic. He loves his motorcycle and been using it for almost 7 years now. I am thinking of giving him an Alpinestars Boots this coming Father’s day celebration as a gift so he can partner it with his motorcycle. I’m sure he will love it because it’s comfy and durable.
