Things That I'm Thankful for Today

September is a special month for me because it is the birth month of my eldest and youngest. My eldest is 15 years old, second born is 13 and Baby Mj is one. Having 2 teens and a baby is not that easy. I really need to balance everything specially now that we have online class set up. One of my everyday challenge was to take care of the baby while helping Ate and Kuya in their online school.

We recently celebrated Ate Bianca and Baby Mj's birthday at home. I have lots of plan, original plan was to set on the same day the christening and birthday celebration of Mj. But we really don't have control of things and situation right now. Because of our fear of the Covid-19, a lot of family gatherings and a like where rescheduled or cancelled. 

I really miss a lot of birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and New Year celebration. If not with this pandemic, we would be spending Ate and baby's birthday eating out with the family. And maybe spend it in my husband's hometown Pangasinan.

Seeing my kids growing up and letting them discover their skills and interests is a wonderful and rewarding feeling and it also makes me feel so excited. I thank God everyday for blessing me with my beautiful children. I always feel so blessed in so may ways. I may not have all the riches in the world, but I have lots to be thankful for today.
 Listed down 15 things that I'm thankful for today;

1. I'm able to wake up each day and be able to take care of my kids. Thankful that my family is healthy and safe especially these times.

2. Be able to cook kids favorite meal. Do appreciate those quality "meal time" with the family.

3. Because we have a home school or online school set up, I get the chance to know more my kids specially their weaknesses in terms of study. I get the chance to know what to do to help them and be their strength.

4. On having a good partner. Yes, we're not that perfect couple, we have a lot of differences but still, at the end of the end, I'm thankful of having a good provider and someone you know that will protect you no matter what.

5. Be able to register to vote. It took me how many years and finally, I'm a registered voter now.

6. Be able to bake a birthday cake for my little one.

7. Get along and virtually meet some moms in some mommy community who shares tips, experiences and just everything about pregnancy, breastfeeding, parenting and more.

8. Surprise delivery from mom and my siblings. 

9. A Childhood friend who finds time to say hi even if he is too busy with his work.

10. Thankful for the opportunity to share my story. 

11. Trying new things. Hello tiktok.

12. Family group chats and video calls. 

13. Ate's first reaction after receiving a special gift from her Aunt. 

14. Baby Mj's ponytail and cute little dress. 

15. Diy family photo shoots and a simple birthday celebration with the family. 

There are lots to be thankful for each day. I thank God for the opportunity to travel, those "little or simple things", the feeling that you are appreciated, family love and just being okey each day. How about you, what are you thankful for today?
