Five Things That Inspire Me

This is my entry to:

What are the five things that inspire me? 

1. My kids - 
Everyday, when I look at them, I feel blessed and thankful that I am chosen to be a mom. Motherhood has changed me in a lot of ways. It has taught me to care, to believe, to have a little more faith and to be strong. Everyday, I am inspired to work harder so I can give them even the little things, the finer things in life, even the things doesn't really matter but will make them happy. Because seeing them happy makes me happy.

2. My hubby - 
My hubby has a very kind heart. He's works hard for us. He doesn't swear, he doesn't drink, he doesn't smoke. He's into clean and green living. Although, more often than not I fail, I always try to be like him, strive to be like him and be more health conscious not only for my sake, but for the sake of my kids.

 3. My parents -
 My parents are very independent people who never ask for anything. They support themselves and are always there to help their children. Their children are still kids to them even if we're old enough already to take care of ourselves.

4. Nature -
 The flowers, the plants, the trees, the sky, the plants, the clouds, the mountains, the beaches and even the rain, and most especially the moon reminds of God's presence in our lives, of his wonderful creativity and love for his creations.

5. Our OFWs -
 I cannot imagine living without my hubby and my kids beside me. I am inspired and have huge respect to those who work abroad, for their sacrifices and everything else that they need to endure in foreign land. They always remind me to be thankful of what I have and endure the tough things in life because other people are enduring more difficult situations in life.
