What is my excuse for disappearing on you? I had been feeling less than wonderful these past few days.
I got sick with the flu, which almost always succeeds in slowing me down and putting life on hold. I could not do what I usually did – that of making the mundane seem interesting, and of chronicling the simple events of life with eyes of awe and wonder. Sometime after my last post, the river was just a river, so to speak. I felt like I had nothing amazing to share.
So the book review on “The Secret Life of Bees” has been shelved. I have also backed out of some other projects offline. Health and work had to take priority, aside from my other duties.
But it had not been a month of boredom and monotony. I had some serious fun as
Check out the photos.
I relived the beauty of Manila when I toured it with my family,
I watched fireworks last Chinese New Year at the Mall of Asia with my entire family,
I goofed around in our living room for a photo shoot,
I posed for our first proper family portrait,
I attended birthday parties of friends.
All in all, still an amazing life. And it goes on.
I cut my hair. I got sick. I got well. I went back to work. I attended a prayer meeting. I had coffee with great people. And Valentine’s Day came.
I will look at my blessings and be grateful for this amazing life.
