2012 Event I won't forget
We went swimming in one of the hot spring resorts in Laguna, here in the Philippines to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday. My kids and I had so much fun! But it was not the fun that made it so memorable and unforgettable. It was the day that my eldest son suddenly collapsed before my very eyes. He was standing right beside me and we were getting ready to go home, and the next thing I knew, he was on the cemented floor. We had to bring him to the hospital. The doctor said it was over fatigue. I didn't sleep well for a couple of weeks because I was watching him while he sleeps. I was that traumatized by the experience.
That day brought me a realization, a realization that everything can be taken away from us in an instant. And that realization actually made me more appreciative of the people around me and of the people I love. I appreciate and treasure every moment I am with them. I live each day as it comes with my children. I begun to listen more and try to be with them more. Everyday starts with I love you's and ends with a prayer of thanks for all the blessings that God is providing us everyday.
Hope you all visit the other participants! And if you're a blogger, we'd love to have you join us, just visit Mama Making Changes blog for details!
