I’ve had a lot on my mind lately, which is probably why I haven’t been getting that much sleep–amongst other things. Recently, I was talking with a good friend of mine. With her advice and encouragement, I believe I can see things much more clearer now. 🙂 #thankyou #wisebeyondheryears #thedreamisstillalive #nexttimeIwilllistentomyintuition
Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough. ~Oprah Winfrey

2015 was a year of learning new lessons and of going through some heartbreaks…well, at least for me and my family.
February and April consisted of my brother being hospitalized due to health complications. After a few months off from work to recuperate, he returned to work and is back to doing what he enjoys. I love my brother dearly and I only want to see him happy. My hope is that 2016 will provide him with more strength and faith because he has certainly endured a lot.
In June, my mother celebrated a milestone birthday, so my sister and one of my mother’s good friends threw her a surprise birthday party. Unfortunately, three weeks later, my mother was also hospitalized due to complications with her health. For the next three and a half months, she was provided with therapy at home. She still has some trouble with her speech (i.e. saying one word for another), but she’s back to following a regular routine; however, with less responsibilities. My mother is my best friend and I don’t know what I’d do without her. I want her to continue getting better and I have faith, and I’m praying that she will.
In October, my father was informed by his physician and by another health specialist that he has to take more precaution with his health. My father has always been dependent on my mother, so I believe what she has gone through (as well as what my brother went through) has been really difficult on him. I’m also praying that his health will improve and I know he, my mother and my brother will be at my graduation in May. 😀
Between attending school full-time and taking on a majority of the responsibilities my mother once had, it has been a chaotic couple of months. A big thank you to my sister for her help, as well as to my cousin and her family, to my Godmother and her husband, and to my mother’s closest friend, for always being there to lend me and my family a helping hand. 🙂
My wishes for 2016: Happiness and prosperity for my family, but most importantly, I’m praying for each of my family member’s health to continue improving. I have faith that God will continue to watch over them. ♥
For my other family and friends: I wish you good health, happiness and prosperity.
As for myself: I want to see my family’s health improve, to finish my education, to find a career in my major/field, to travel and, who knows, maybe find the 🔑 to my ♥. 😀
A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to. It is different. And there’s room in the garden for every flower. You didn’t have to struggle to make your face different than anyone else’s on earth. It just is. You are unique because you were created that way. ~Marianne Williamson
Everything happens when it needs to happen;
everyone is always where they need to be.
You will never miss out on what is meant for you,
even if it has to come to you in a roundabout way.
