Count Your Blessings

Count your blessings is an old fashioned way of saying get some perspective on your life.People who feel stressed often become pre-occupied with their own problems. When you reach out to others and see that they have problems too often worse problems than yours. You come to understand that maybe the stresses in your life aren't so bad after all.If you have trouble counting your blessings,volunteering at a social service agency that helps those less fortunate than you are.Vounteering not only helps people count their blesings it also provides real help for the recipients.And making a difference in someone's life is stress reducing for the volunteers because it gives them feelings of control and competence in the world. In other words, there are a lot of selfish reasons to be altruistic.


One reason antique china is still beautiful after a hundred plus years is that it had careful treatment. It was washed and dried by hand. Eventhough dishwasher have become fixtures in most homes "fine bone china should be washed by hand". It can be washed in a dishwasher if you use a very mild dishwashing detergent. Do not let it go through the drying cycle.The heat can damage the finish. So stop the dishwasher before it reaches.

Great day

After the sunday Service at ORT Methodist Church we went to the mall to celebrate our Anniversary,again! We ate,shopping and we watch Movie the "College Road Trip".Me and my husband love to watch Martin Lawrence movies.The last time we watch is "Welcome Home" and that was so funny.The College Road Trip is not really fun for me but a good lesson for a father who is too protective to her daughter.It's about trust. Anyway, we have a great day. Got to go bed now coz' Im tired.Goodnight.

What you love the most of your partner/hubby?

Thanks Ate Joy for the tag.

To my husband? In fact that he really listen to me, ha ha ha he makes me laugh. I love that even if we disagree the love is still there and neither one of us stays angry for long. We respect each other.

Divine Mercy sunday

I attend Sunday Mass on Saturday night.The sermon last night is about the Feast of the Divine Mercy.MArch 30 is the Feast of the Divine Mercy.The Feast of the Divine Mercy falls on Octave of Easter or the first Sunday after Easter Sunday. I find the mesage of divine Mercy so comforting. It's all about trusting in God and loving God and each other. The world is so far away from GOd. People think they are too far gone due to sin,but there not.As the message of the Divine Mercy teach us GOd is always there ready to heal us.He's always there for us.

Boardwalk Bullet at kemah

Have you ever seen a roller coaster made of woods? Well, here in kemah boardwalk you can find the Boardwalk Bullets made of woods.I seen a roller coaster in Enchanted kingdom and star city but not made of woods.Coolest coaster on the coast!The texas Gulf coast only rollercoaster wood or steel.Compact and twisted with a footprint of 1 acre.Just a few feet from Galveston Bay, 5 feet from the water edge. When Im on my way home Pete decided to go to kemah since his daughter is here visiting on them.Maybe you ask who is Pete?I work with them in the morning as a caregiver. So we went to kemah and eat at Joe's Crab Shack. They served good food, a really good food!You can see little dinghies,grandiose yachts, and working shrimp boats.We enjoy strolling the boardwalk, enjoying the sights and sounds.Kemah is a biggest attraction for families.

Good Friday

Yesterday is Good Friday the friday before easter commemorates the Passion of the cross and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ on the Cross. As a catholic Good Friday is a strict fast and abstinece. I attend good friday 6pm service at the Catholic and 7pm at the Methodist. My husband always go with me everytime I attend mass service except if it's conflict...... We arrived exactly 7pm at the Methodist Church,suddenly the preacher came on me and said "can "you read the 3rd SEVEN LAST WORD OF JESUS".....ahhhhhh I said ok....they know that I dont refuse reading.....but they always do that to me! reading on the spot. Sometimes I ask myself you dont read at the catholic church but here in Methodist you're always reading the bible scripture....Huh!..anyway...I did that for GOd, for my's my pleasure that they always choose me...they had a good, as in good service..also had a short special look at the cross by Brad Paisley ( I post a video last week ). They write there sins in a piece of paper,nail in the cross then they burn it....whereas, as Catholic we confess our sin to the Priest....

St. Joseph Nursery,Pearland TX

Yesterday morning we went to ST. Josephs Nursery at Pearland to pick up 50 Easter Lilies.It's an hour from Channelview to there. This is a place if you need flowers,shrubs, or trees. They have a larger selection,healthier plants and lower prices than the hardware stores of Houston Garden Center. Their azaleas roses are look great right now. I love to go with my husband everytime the Old River Terrace Methodist Church order some flowers.You know why? because the owner always give me one free flower..she always told me "get one you like" they are chinese........ the flowers and plants there are cheap....Im a flower plant addict, so far this is the Nursey that I really like....ha ha what I said they always give me free plant....So, if you live in houston and want aplant for your landscaping visit St Joseph Nursery at Pearland.

Maundy Thursday

THe Last Supper

Today is MAundy Thursday.I should go to the Catholic Church for the service but it's conflict with the ORT Methodist CHurch which my husband go. So, this evening I decide to attend the service at the ORTUMC.

Maundy Thursday is also called Holy Thursday is a service to commemorate Jesus Last Supper and the beginning of our sacrament. the Lord Supper. The word Maundy comes from the latin mandatum, which means "commandment". At the last supper Jesus gave the disciples a new commandment to love one another as he had loved them.Prior to breaking the bread with the disciples. Jesus was their feet. Maundy Thursday worship services include Holy Communion and sometimes foot washing as well.

Shampoo Great for removing soap scum

I have a clear glass shower door and have tried different methods to remove the soap scum that accumulate. HArd water seems to accelerate the buildup of soap residue on the door. I thought of shampoo as a possible soap scum remover because shampoo is formulated to rinse hair completely...ha ha ha....just experimenting.It works like a charm, with little effort. The type of shampoo doesn't seem to matter. Put a small amount of shampoo on a cloth and go over the surface. Rine, use a squeegee and you are done.

Monday, March 17, 2008


What a good Monday? I sold two items in ebay today. The 27 books CHild Magic Castle Readers and Dallas Belt Buckle.I really dont call people who bid on my items. At this time,one of my customer ask a favor if I could call her.She's the one who bid the childrens books.This coming MOnday would be her daughters birthday she ask me if possible I could expedite mail the books just let her know how much she owe me.I dont trust people when it's comes like could not tell...since it's her daughters birthday I will give her a chance..anyway,it's my fault !.........before she pay me in paypal she email me how much is the extra charge for expedite mail.I did not check my ebay this afternoon..when the item ended.......We went to saltgrass for supper and didn't like it....I rather love Red Lobster.....

It's Monday

Yesterday was Palm Sunday.....THe ORT Methodist Church have a "GUEST". It's nice to share about your life..... I know how hard for her having dont have any small intestine and large intestine and some other parts of her body and all kinds of pain due to the accident happen when she is still a kid......It's not proper to say inside the sanctuary saying "SHE PULL HER SKIRT, ETC." it dont make sense....In all what she share I dont hear any! any! bible scripture..It's takes and hour but we never heard anything or any lesson..Maybe Im wrong...but that's my opinion.......She also selling a book about her life but why she say everything about her life during the sermon since she is also selling books about her life!......It's make me aggravate yesterday.....when she mentioned about those words are not proper..there are too many YOUTH inside the sanctuary........second I was hungry.. ha ha ha. I dont know either what the Preacher's reaction....maybe he dont expect that his guest speaker will say something about it!....The ORTMC Preacher is an old fashionedddd,probably he dont like it either.....Im not an old fashion...not really! but I dont like the way she deliver her's almost 1pm.......I felt sorry for her..She's from Arkansa and travel this far, far away just to ask donation for her treatment..............Anyway, I have to go to work for a back tonight

Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday ranks as one of Christianity's holiest days, second only to Christmas and Easter. Palm Sunday falls on the last Sunday of Lent (the Sunday before Easter) and marks the beginning of Holy Week. First known as the Pascha (Passover), the meaning of Palm Sunday can be understood by looking at the history of the Christian church. Palm Sunday originated in the Jerusalem Church, around the late fourth century. The ceremony consisted of prayers, hymns, and sermons recited by the clergy while the people moved among various holy sites throughout the city. At the last site, where Christ ascended into heaven, the clergy would read from the gospels concerning the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. In the early evening they would return to the city reciting: "Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord." The children would carry palm and olive branches as the people returned through the city to the church, where they would hold evening services.Palm Sunday commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. The gospels record the arrival of Jesus riding into the city on a donkey, while the crowds spread their cloaks and palm branches on the street and shouted "Hosanna to the Son of David" and "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord" to honor him as their long-awaited Messiah and King. The significance of Jesus riding a donkey and having his way paved with palm branches is a fulfillment of a prophecy spoken by the prophet Zechariah (Zechariah 9:9). In biblical times, the regional custom called for kings and nobles arriving in procession to ride on the back of a donkey. The donkey (or domesticated ass) was a symbol of peace those who rode upon them proclaimed peaceful intentions. The laying of palm branches indicated that the king or dignitary was arriving in victory or triumph. In some countries, palms are placed on the graves of the departed. In colder northern climates, where palm trees are not found, branches of yew, willow, and sallow trees are used. The palms blessed in the ceremony are burned at the end of the day. The ashes are then preserved for next year's Ash Wednesday celebration. In the simplest of terms, Palm Sunday is an occasion for reflecting on the final week of Jesus' life. It is a time for Christians to prepare their hearts for the agony of His Passion and the joy of His Resurrection.

Watch's amazing

Today, my husband emailed me a video, someone had emailed him I think there Preacher and asked me if I thought we should use it in our Good Friday service at OLD RIVER TERRACE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH. They usually do slides during the service........As a catholic and a christian theres nothing wrong if they use it on Good friday since it's about GOD... So I opened and watched it. I was blown away. This video was amazing and I told him the church definetely, definetely use it in our Good Friday service.
If you take the time to watch it, let me know what you think. Happy Easter!!!

Consider these candle Precautions

If you're like millions of us, you probably burn candles for their soft glow and fabulous fragrance. But before you strike that match, consider these precautions.

  • Trim the wick each time to 1/4 inch to help the candle burn more evenly, which in turn will make the candle last longer.
  • Use heat resistant surfaces to set the candle on and if burning more than one in the same ares keep them at least three inches a part.
  • Never burn candles near curtains, stacks of paper or dried floral arrangements.
  • keep candle away from drafts. A slight breeze can ignite a nearby curtain or any flammable decorations.
  • Never leave burning candles unattended.MAny house fires have been started by forgotten candles.It only takes one!
  • The best way to extinguish a candle is by pushing the flame into the melted wax with a table knife or any metal blade. It will go out immediately with no soot or sprayed wax.After the flame is out make the wick stand up.

Take a look at the candles in your home today. Are they in safe containers and away from any hazards?

Im looking at the net this evening,looking for a good anti-virus for my PC.....suddenly I found this CCleaner.....also I read some discussions...CCleaner (formerly Crap Cleaner) is a freeware system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused and temporary files from your system allowing Windows to run faster, more efficiently and giving you more hard disk space. The best part is that it's fast! I am extremely impressed with the improvement in my computer after using it.Be prepared the first to you run clean windows for the application to take up to 2 hours to process depending on the size and usage of your hard drive.I was shocked when it found 173,867 un-needed files in windows and made over 100 deletions from my system registry file, which really speeded up the startup process.

Do you remember this game....This is my favorite game since elementary....It's a "Sungka".Last year I seen SUNGKA BOARD at the Filipino store,as in binili ko and my husband ask me what will I do with those carved board....I answer him I will tell you when were home....ha ha ha.....We always play this game...sometimes I cheat to him ha ha ha..later on I could not cheat on him because my husband is smart when it comes to math......The picture above is the Initial Position. Well, if you could not remember the game I will share it to you how to play..

At each turn a player empties one of his small pits and then distributes its contents in a counterclockwise direction, one by one, into the following pits including his own store, but passing the opponents store. If the last stone falls into a non-empty small pit, its contents are lifted and distributed in another lap.
If the last stone is dropped into the player's own store, the player gets a bonus move.
If the last stone is dropped into an empty pit or the opponent's store, the move ends.
If the move ends by dropping the last stone into one of your own small pits you capture the stones in the opponent's pit directly across the board and your own stone. The captured stones are deposited in your store. However, if the opponent's pit is empty, nothing is captured.
The first move is played simultaneously. After that play is alternately. The first player to finish the first move may start the second move. However, in face-to-face play one player might start shortly after his opponent so that he could choose a response which would give him an advantage. There is no rule that actually could prevent such a tactic. So, in fact, the decision-making may be non-simultaneous.
You must move if you can. If you can't a player must pass until he can move again.
The game ends when no stones are left in the small pits.
The player who captures most stones wins the game........

Turn on Skype

Miss your son at college, or your sister and family who lives in Pinas. Wish you could see them while you talk? skype connect through the INternet, but instead of using a phone to talk, you call and speak into a microphone, and you hear the other person through your computer's speakers. The best part!.......YOu can attach small video cameras to your computers so you can see each other. A basic skype account is free..the only cost is for the equipment a microphone and an "eyeball" video camera. I got both for less than $ 40 total and love it. Check out
Good love to talk for long periods of time, and you want to feel like you're right here there with family and friends. But remember, you both need to have the skype equipment and software.

Should Get Rid of my Landline

If you use cellphone as your only phone and have digital service or Internet calling, you may be tempted to join the 14 percent of households who've dumped their landlines altogether. But don't do it. The simple reason cable, Internet and cellphone networks may not working during prolonged power outgates. Plus, theres the matter of 911. If you're unable to give your location when calling from a cellphone, th epolice may not be able to find you the way if you've called from a landline. Instead of ditchig the landline, strip down to the barest minimum plan, so you have it for emergencies.

How to Dance in the Rain

It was a busy morning, about 8:30, when an elderly gentleman in his 80's, arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He said he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am.I took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to see him.I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with another patient, I would evaluate his wound.On exam, it was well healed, so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.
While taking care of his wound, I asked him if he had another doctor's appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry. The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife.

I inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer's Disease. As we talked, I asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.
I was surprised, and asked him, "And you still go every morning, even though she doesn't know who you are?"He smiled as he patted my hand and said, "She doesn't know me, but I still know who she is.."I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and thought, "That is the kind of love I want in my life."True love is neither physical, nor romantic. True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.With all the jokes and fun that is in e-mails, sometimes there is one that comes along that has an important message. This one I thought I could share with you.

The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything they just make the best of everything they have.I hope you share this with someone you care about. I just did.
"Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain."

Credit Card alert should include spouse,too

In reference to the hint about notifying your credit card companies if you are going on a trip,especially out of the US be sure to let them know if your spouse is not cominmg with you.
I had a friend whose husband was overseas.One day she called her husband from (out of US), she buy a clothes and her purchased was declined.Her husband contact the credit-card companies to let them know that his wife was still at home(US) and had access to the cards.

Stay Alert Behind the Wheel

Lack of sleep is a major cause of car accidents........If staying off the road when you're tired is unavoidable.......suck a mint,the scents of peppermint and cinnamon boost alertness while cutting fatigue in drivers....crank the stereo, fast music with high frequency sounds (like high voices, violins, and saxophones) will help keep you sharp.."Brain waves, heart rate and breath will speed up to match the rhythm" Grab a cup of coffee, coffee is more effective than taking a power nap.

Hello! wait a minute.....We could not tell them that hello! you have 11 kids...Oh well, this is's nice to help some other people but our point here is we could not stay all day in their house because my husband had too many things to do at the church...To make it short last year of NOvember,they convinced us again, at this time we talk seriously.....and Pete Webster decided that he is not capable anymore to drive anymore and cannot do things like what he usually done.My husband treat them like a real parents....So my husband make a contract.....etc....You know what I mean? We ask them what their kids reaction about this plan,they told us that this is just between them and us...the kids dont have a business for paying us.........Can u imagine that! they have 11 kids and they dont care there parents....some of them are all after their inheritance......Pete is a Scottish and he is too tight when it comes to money,dont make me wrong they are a good person.His wife is so sweet. Well, I got that job last Jan 5, 2008 since I aint do nothing at home.Im happy know why? my husband wants me to take Nursing but I dont feel it.For your info I already took the entrance examination last 2006 and I passed.My subject are all scheduled and ready to start the first day of class.......suddenly I change my mind,I told my husband Im not ready for this,please give me more enough time and I dont want to waste my tuition if Im not yet ready.Now, I have a reason why I cant go to College, Im working....I always got my paycheck every MOnday.....My first day, it was boring.....u know why? because we just talk with ALice (His wife) over and over and over ha ha ha....the second day I ask her if she already make me a list what to do everyday..she just told me "I DONT KNOW"sometimes she could not remember things,thats what happen to us when we got old ha ha..... they just need companionship at home.Her husband want me to prepare his medicine...well it's not hard for me because even in the PHilippines when I was highschool I been doing that to my "LOLO" who is in heaven now......they thought I want to be a nurse but they are wrong I took Business Administration major in management....Oh well,lets go back to my main point......they need companionship and converstaion,I do arrange their appoinmnets,medication reminders....

Doing Good and Avoiding Evil

There are some things we must never do, as individuals or as a society, because they are always incompatible with LOve of GOD. and neighbour. These intrinsically evil acts must always be rejected and never supported. A preeminent example is the intentional taking of human life through abortion. It is always morally wrong to destroy innocent human beings. A legal system that allows the right to life to be violated on the grounds of choice is fundamentally flawed.
Direct threats to the dignity of human life such as euthanasia, human cloning and destructive research on human embryo are also intrinsically evil and and must opposed. Other assaults on human life and dignity, such as genocide, torture, racism and the targeting of noncombatants in acts of terror or war, can never be justified. Disrespect for any human life diminishes respect for all human life. The basic right to life implies and is linked to other human rights to the goods that every person needs to live and thrive including food, shelter,health care, education and meaningful work. The use of death penalty, hunger. lack of health care or housing, human trafficking, the human and moral costs of war and unjust immigration policies are some of the serious moral issues that challenge our conscienses and require us to act

It's Saturday and time to go for me to church every Saturday night.Im A Catholic and my husband is a MEthodist....through this we dont have any problem with my husband.He goes with me at the catholic and I go with him on Sunday at the Methodist.But take note we got married at the Methodist Church....Anyway, I want to share the gospel last Saturday night service.It's about the sin of "SLOTH". Athough sloth is considered a synonym or laziness,the sin of sloth includes much more than merely being too tired or too lazy to do things. Sloth is more than simply lying on the couch for an entire afternoon. Though the sloth today usually means physical laziness in the original seven deadly sins, sloth was sadness or depression. The word for sloth "ACEDIA" ( from the Greek "akedia" or "not to care") meant "spiritual sloth" The gravity of sloth is that is seen inhibitingf or preventing virtous conduct. It is considered sinful or wrong beacuse in action, in both the spiritual and wordly realms, can be just as bad as wrong actions. Sloth does include being a couch potato, but is also often interpreted as wasting precious time, not doing enough to help the world and avoiding a rigorous spiritual journey. In other words, sloth is not about being too tirwed, it's about not caring enough or trusting to fulfill our inherent obligations.
