I believe God has a reason for giving us five boys. Yes. Five boys.
Like most expectant moms, I also wished to have a baby girl. Each time we walk into that sonogram appointment, I prayed for a girl only that the OB-Gyn Sonologist would tell us “It’s a boy.”
Cut the tie that binds
After my fifth childbirth, I had my ligation. It’s a surgery that blocks my fallopian tube preventing my egg cells to reach the tubes. It is a permanent form of birth control. I will no longer have a daughter.
Understanding boys isn’t difficult as I live it. It is because I try not to understand them sometimes when I find it hard to do. I just act and speak with love and everything else seems easy again. It’s a trick my husband taught me – do things that move you to love and everything else seems to follow.
Ties meant to be
I used to be close to my three boys. As they mature, though, their interests aren’t the same as mine anymore. This widens the gap until I am now left with my two younger boys to care. But I may say that despite the not so close relationship we have, we still have the connection. There are times that they would tell me things which they can’t confide to their father. Perhaps because of the ties that bind us. Some ties defy distance, time and logic because some ties are simply meant to be.
Ties that bind
Pretty much the same ties that bind me to Folk Ties. It is a small backyard enterprise that produces hand-woven bracelets that fit perfectly to any personality or every OOTD. It is a personal customized accessory I still use from time to time because again, it completes the look I would want to project. Perhaps it is the same ties that bind the founder Virna Alyssa Cabuhat to start Folk Ties in 2012 and relaunch it recently. Virna believes she has the market for her Folk Ties – those individuals who value their personality, style, and affection for hand-crafted products.
I can be real sentimental. Despite living in this age when technology keeps reinventing, I can still hold on to some values and possibly style of my earlier years, these Folk Ties bracelets, included.
If you still can’t think of something to give your friends and even family this Christmas, how about including one or two hand-woven bracelets on your gift box? I am guessing they will appreciate your gift because each is specially handmade with love. Folk Ties ships all throughout the Philippines, too.

Ties defy indifference
I have five boys. My three boys who pretend to be grown up already play video games while I don’t. Roller coaster rides scare me while they love them to the fullest. We have many differences but some ties defy dissimilarity because some ties are simply meant to be.
