Therefore, I will Be.....

Unlike in years past, I will embrace this change with confidence. With the gracefulness of a lush green bamboo...bending to where the wind blows... so will I.....

No more encumbering worries as to what the coming days could fearfully fling towards me....Unmistakably, I feel strong and ready to ride the flow of change once again and...yes...this time to enjoy the journey as well.


Soon enough....soon enough... I would have to leave my sweet terrace. And so too will the swaying lull of hanging chimes coupled with the chirping maya birds in this portion of the world no longer wake me after an evening's slumber...Friends within the neighborhood I tea with (at least once a week) will have to bid adieu. Once again, my family and I are making out plans to move to a new home.

It is inevitable.

Work...schooling and so many major factors considered dictate that the bast thing for us would be to move closer to the business district area.....

I like this idea.

I like the idea of having to just walk out my home and within a short distance a cozy Figaro or UCC or Seattle's is available...

I like the idea that cool shops and restaurants and all bookstores are within reach...

I like the idea that business centers are at close proximity and no incredible mad rush through hellish traffic will have to be maddeningly braved...

And mostly, I like the idea that my family and I will all be home in decent time to comfortably enjoy dinner together. I know breakfast will be a definite rush still...lunch is out of the question (we each have our thing to do)...but dinner together is a must...


I'm not usually this calm when it comes to change. I must have done some growing up lately...It's no use worrying really....Just one day at a time is all I need...all we need....

Everything will fall in place....


It always does...

Therefore, I will be at peace with this...

and I will be content.


Happy week to everyone!

wow, another move, luxie! it'll be tons of work but if it's for the better it's really worth it. being able to walk to places is great. and i love being able to walk to places. we also moved closer to town. we can now walk to town. but you saw my pics. town for us is small. no starbucks or bookstore to walk although i could probably walk to the library in 25 minutes or so.

nope, i'm not playing anymore....
but i did take the day off. so i'm relaxing from all that playtime...:)

Wow, that sounds like a collassal hassle. You just moved to that place. I'm sorry you couldn't have moved to that place last year. Now, you'll have to pack again.

Did the house ever feel like yours, at least?

moving is so much work, but many times it is for the better. It sounds like this will give you more family time in th evenings...

from one who knows of the traffic of which you speak of--that sounds like a good move.
whenever we go home to the philippines, i too opt to stay in an area that is walking distance to everything.
after all, life is too short.
enjoy those dinners with your family.

Hi to each one of you!.I'm kinda' pressed for time so can't blog as much as I would want to..

The move will take place sometime July. We are preparing very well for this and just want things to flow real smooth and with as less hassle as possible.

And yes Foam..I believe the move is well worth it...convenience..convenience...is the reason

And thanks Hann..I am being positive about this..and a' so appreciative of what you gave me!

XDell...hmmm..I more of think of the house as s dear friend who sheltered me for the time being..I did know when I moved here that it would be temporary...

hmmm..I'm being called somewhere..will be back to this later...
