Been doing a lot of blog cleaning and this draft is too beautiful not to share. Drafted last December 6, 2012; our son taught me patience.
We were browsing through old writings and this draft made us smile. How time flies. The three boys are all big kuyas already, and we have two little ones at home about to study, too, a few years from now.
Reading through our musings, we smiled –
Studies reveal that parents who express frequent anger in front of their kids may result in having more aggressive and depressed children. Violence has such a negative effect on children that may affect how they see their parents, the world, and even themselves. Do not let your frustration and lousy mood change how your kid adapts to the world. Manage your anger and practice being a calm parent. How to? Momi Berlin gives you a rundown.
You went to the office and did your usual stuff. When you got home, the food on the table was still there, untouched. You called your aging parent, and there was no response. After a few minutes, your neighbor knocked on your door with your father by his side. He saw your parent wandering around the park, too clueless about the things around him.
You scheduled a doctor’s appointment, and after a series of tests, you learned your parent has dementia.
Purposeful living may sound too difficult to pursue. When you look at it, though, it is living your life towards a big goal aligned with your passion and values. Finding and acknowledging that purpose leads you to a happy and contented life. Add to that, a purposeful living surpasses obstacles and overcomes limitations. It never quits nor afraid to take action. Making up excuses is never a habit.
What are we driving at here?

We may say that the true spirit of Bayanihan is still there. There are many civilians and companies doing their way to help in this most trying times of the new coronavirus, COVID-19. SM Supermalls through SM Foundation, is one of the many that step up to send help.
SM donated over PHP170M towards the fight against COVID 19, surpassing its initial allocation of PHP100 M. The donation aims to ensure that our healthcare workers in hospitals nationwide are armored with personal protective equipment (PPE). A part of the contribution also funded the purchase of ICU-grade ventilators to help hospitals manage patients with severe cases.
Among the many hospitals that already received PPE donations were the University of the Philippines PGH, Lung Center of the Philippines, and Jose N Rodriguez Memorial Hospital. These medical institutions are the country’s designated COVID hospitals.
Major government hospitals such as the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) and National Kidney and Transplant Institute also benefited from the donation. San Lazaro Hospital, East Avenue Medical Center, and Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center were also not left behind. About 10 more hospitals benefited from the donation, and several shipments of PPEs are still on their way to provincial hospitals nationwide.
Indeed, the Filipino Bayanihan spirit shines through in the middle of the coronavirus outbreak. To the likes of SM Foundation, our sincerest gratitude.
Celebrated relationship counselor expert Gary Chapman made a name in the industry for his book series Love Languages. While many could relate to this perennial best- selling book improve relationships with romantic partners, most haven’t thought of applying them to refine the parent-child bonding.
Often, parents assume their children know they are loved. The kids, on the other hand, are struggling with the idea of their parents’ affection. They wonder how could their mother or father love them when all they do is work for a living.
Momi Berlin shares how parents could incorporate these love languages in dealing with their youngsters.
One Sunday, I visited my mother. I found her sleeping, evident that a few tears flew out of her eyes and rolled down her cheek. She moaned a little, and so I held her hands.
Hers are crooked showing her real age. Her knuckles are puffy, and there are wrinkles and webs between her fingers. My mother has real ugly old hands. I massaged them, and slowly, a series of memories played in my mind.
There may be many reasons we do and say things, but one thing is sure. We, humans, seek our gain from our decisions. Some opted to work because they want to get paid and have the money to buy their wants. Others push for their passion because it drives them to fulfillment. Thus, most of the peoples’ actions are self-interested.
