Early Christmas gift from my SIL

Last Sunday I went to visit my older brother and his wife in Panabo City.  The city next to our city.  I have to travel for one hour and 30 minutes to reach his place.  Even though the rain is pouring, it did not stop me from going.  I have to ask the brother a favor that is why I still go even if I am not feeling really well.  I can’t bring my two nieces with me because of the bad weather, I brought with me my neighbor.  She is close to me so approaching her if she could come with me is easy.  She said yes right away because she likes to travel and riding in a bus.

After lunch, the SIL brought us to the mall.  My brother gave me money so I could buy the favor I asked of him.  We we’re having fun strolling around, window shopping and looking for a dress that I could wear on the event I am going to attend this Christmas day.  It took me more than an hour looking and deciding for the dress to buy.  I am so thankful to my SIL because of the patience she has in me.  Not only that, she did pay the dress that I picked.  Said that it is a gift for me.  I am so happy and thankful to her.  Thank you for the early Christmas gift Ana Lou (my SIL’s name).  Also, to my brother for the money he gave me.  God bless you both!

Excited for the Christmas shopping

Christmas is fast approaching.  People are so busy buying new things before Christmas, buying Christmas decorations, doing early shopping to avoid shopping rush, and buying gifts for their love ones.  People are so excited and looking forward for this holiday to come because this is the day where the family are complete, doing reunion and have more bonding.  I myself is so excited the family will be complete during Christmas and New year.  Double the excitement for the family because we are celebrating the 6th birthday of my nephew on the 25th and also, the christening of my niece.  What is celebration indeed for the family.

My sister would be very busy this 25th of December I must say.  The sister is done doing the things to buy for the event.  She wanted it simple and memorable celebration.  I am helping her doing the preparation.  The Christmas shopping would be on the second week of December and I am so excited because my Christmas list too.haha!  Hopefully the celebration would be a success and that all the invited guests could come and celebrate with us.  Oh, by the ways I am one of the godparents of my pretty niece and it makes me more excited.

What I want for Christmas

Christmas is indeed fast approaching.  I can feel the spirit of Christmas in our village, in the city and in the malls.  It is time for gift giving and receiving.  And I like the latter part…haha!  Just kidding!  I already have my list but not sure if I am able to buy it this Christmas.  I have to consider my budget, and consider saving money for the rainy days.  My nephews and nieces told me the gifts that they want to receive this Christmas.  I just give them my sweet smile.  I told him, I will try but not promise anything.  One thing that I can surely give them is my love, care and prayer.  It is for me and priceless.

Few days ago, I am surprised by my nephew.  He is asking me what I want for Christmas.  And said that he will give me a present this Christmas.  I am so touched because at his age, he thought of giving me a gift.  The nephew is six years old by the way.  I did not answer him right away because I am speechless.  Surely the nephew is sweet.  I never thought he would asked me that question at his age.  Anyways, thank you nephew for the thought.  Also, I already told him of what I want for Christmas and he run to his mother and said, Mama, Tita (aunt) want this for Christmas.haha!  We’ll see if I get what I want for Christmas.  Thank you JC!

New mattress for my father

My father is 70 years old.  He is sickly and has been complaining of body pain.  Before his bed does not have mattress because cannot afford to buy him mattress.  And because he is suffering from body pain every morning we decided to buy him mattress for him to sleep comfortably.  He was the happiest person seeing the mattress we bought for him.  That was five years ago, and father is 65 years old.  Five years has passed and the mattress that he is using is not in good shape anymore.  Well, the quality of the mattress that we bought is not that good because that time we though of the price more than the quality.  We have to consider our budget so to speak.

Now the father is complaining.  He told me that he will buy new mattress using his pension.  He really need a new one and he wants a good quality this time.  I look for a good quality of mattress at the mall and see if there is discount or on sale.  It is best to buy when the item is on sale and offering discount.  My timing is perfect when I went to the mall with my sister.  The kind of mattress that my father wants to buy is offering 20% discount.  I called the father and asked if he is interested.  He said yes.  Since I do not have money, we are just using the credit card of my sister.  Indeed credit card is a savior.  We just have to use it responsibly.  At the moment, the father is enjoying his new mattress.  And I am not hearing any body pain complain in the morning.
