A Loving Tribute to a Very Special Woman: Sis Maureen

It is a rare occurrence when someone comes into your life from out of nowhere; just touches your entire being, and simply transforms you inwardly. The feeling is somehow indescribable.

That is how Sister Maureen had made me and my husband feel when she came into our lives. If only our hearts could talk, there are actually no words to define what it actually feels.

She is not a blogger but she is the entrepreneur behind the website Decors and Motifs. She was the artistic and creative woman who styled our wedding reception.

But never had I thought that she could be more than just an event stylist in our lives.

When we were at the lowest point of our lives and we thought we had nowhere to go, without second thoughts, Sis Maureen came to our rescue. I felt the tears streaming down my cheeks when her help came just when we needed it the most. She went over and beyond to extend help to us when we were lost and completely in the dark.

As a matter of fact, as I write this, I can’t help but shed a tear once more. It is for the obvious reason that God always knows when and how to intervene. I firmly believe it is for this reason that Sister Maureen was placed into our lives. Sans family here in Australia, she made me feel I am one of her own. NO questions asked.

Each time I look back and think about it, I weep. I weep because in this hard times where the world is so full of evil and wickedness, there is this one beautiful soul who chose to be the light in times of our darkness, distress, pains, and struggles.

She has always been a constant figure in our lives since our wedding day. Although we sparingly spent time together, we do make sure however that we share each others’ life’s circumstances every after Thursday Worship Services or via the internet and SMS. Times spent were very momentary but her sincere friendship, warmth, genuineness, love and kindness had emanated in our lives through and through. It touched the very core of our beings. She has never spoken ill of anyone. She is a woman with no hang-ups in life. Simply dignified!

Having been the recipient of her family’s goodness, we can only thank the Lord for putting into our lives the right people. I am completely aware that this blogpost will never suffice to repay what she has done for me and our little family, yet I want everyone to know that there are still good people around us. Her act of love and kindness is one of the concrete reasons why my faith in humanity was restored.

We will be forever grateful and indebted to her and her family. With our love, my husband and I wishes her and her entire family a beautiful loving journey on this earth. May she continue to touch more lives in similar fashion she has lovingly touched ours!

What is Acrylic Sheet Tape?

Acrylic sheet tape is a special kind of adhesive tape that has many industrial and commercial uses, but is also often used by the common consumer. Also referred to as poly-carbonate tape or simply “sheeting tape”, acrylic and poly-carbonate tapes are bonding tapes that provide a quick, strong, long-lasting bond with many materials, including porous ones. While regular tapes are limited to smooth, hard, dry surfaces, you’ll find that acrylic tapes can be used on textured surfaces such as plaster and wood, and they even work in damp conditions, and around liquid materials such as drying plaster, primer, and even paint (click here for more application recommendations for dry/wet conditions). Additionally, the tape is virtually weather-proof, which means it can be used indoors as well as outdoors, regardless of temperature or humidity fluctuations.

In the consumer world, you’ll find that acrylic sheet tape is very useful in the installation, repair, or maintenance of:

  • swimming pools and man-made ponds
  • large tubs and containers that hold liquid
  • garages, carports, porches, patios, and canopies
  • doors and windows

Acrylic sheeting tape is available in various widths and thicknesses, and special double-sided tapes are available for specific applications. Just about any hardware store will carry this kind of tape, and you may also order it online directly from manufacturers.

Special Birthday Presents from the City that Never Sleeps

Like she always does, Ate J never fails to send out her birthday presents to me regardless of the circumstances. I am aware she is in the thick of things of late and sending out a birthday present my way was least expected from her. I was very touched with her thoughtful and sweet gesture.

The birthday surprise my have been foiled because of a missed delivery.

However, it did not fail to bring a smile to my face and unsuppressed joy to my heart. I felt so loved and special by a person that I haven’t even met yet in the flesh. It is incredibly heartwarming that a special virtual friendship like this could exist.

Please allow me to brag a little bit about the gifts I’ve got overseas for my birthday :-)

All these gifts were very well thought of long before my birthday. I have surmised the warnings in our private conversations were well meaning.

It goes like this:

“Please don’t get too big or else your feet will go bigger. Ikaw din! Hahaha!”

Now I completely understand why.

I can’t wait to show off all these lovelies ;-)

Meanwhile, I am sending my biggest virtual hugs and love to the most generous person there is in bloglandia. Thank you so much Ate J for the gifts and the special friendship. May God always bless your kind and generous heart.

Love yah always!

The Crazy Moth Chase

It was an exciting time for us lastnite. I woke up past 2am when I thought I will have have another bout of leg cramps. Thank God I didn’t!

My Prince beside me moved and heard the sound of the moth trapped behind the blinds. I thought it was the sound of the raindrops but I was told it wasn’t. He got up and tried to chase the crazy little moth all around our small bedroom- behind the blinds, picture frame, under the bedside table, and when it finally landed on top of his pillow, he was smiling triumphantly when he thought he literally gotten rid of the moth when he thrown it away outside the room. It was a winning moment for my Prince over a little moth who was bugging our sleep in the wee hours of the morning. Hahaha!

We tried to go back to sleep after that. A few minutes later, we heard another sound. I thought it was raining for real.

But lo and behold!

The moth resurrected! How on earth the moth was able to rise back from its grave? Lol!

The Prince lost his patience this time. He grabbed a spray and chased the moth to no end! He was merciless! Lol! He was relieved to finally see it dead infront of him. It was past 3am.

This morning, he told me not to ask him what his sleep was like. Haha! I was teasing him that he was a moth killer at dawn and he simply retorted:

“We have dominion over animals that try to pester our sleep.”
