goodbye 2008…hello 2009!!!  there’s so much to be thankful for…good health, blissful marriage, strong faith in the Lord, hope & strength in difficult times, healing for every sickness in the family, and so much more!  Words are not enough to thank the Lord for His faithfulness, goodness, patience, and  provisions.  I’m always looking forward to a new year…I know in my heart, no matter what happens, God’s grace and love will uphold me.

A BLESSED NEW YEAR TO ALL…for those who have lost hope and faith, may the Lord renew a steadfast spirit in you…for those who don’t have peace in their hearts, may you find peace which transcends all human understanding in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Today is my twins’ bithrday!  I gave birth to them exactly 5 years ago…it was also a Sunday when I delivered them at exactly 28 weeks.  Sadly, they are now with their creator.  The boy, John Adriel lived for only 10 hours because he was the weakest and the smallest (400 grams).  The girl, Caitlyn Elise who weighed in at 650 grams lived for 1 month in the NICU (neo-natal intensive care unit) of Dammam Maternity Hospital.  It’s difficult for me to remember what happened…parang sobrang bilis kasi ng mga pangyayari and very painful.  I visited her in NICU every single day…my husband would drop me off in the hospital at around 2:30 after my class and I would stay with her until 7 pm.  Naghihintay lang ako sa labas ng NICU and i would go in every 30 minutes to check on herShe died on December 22 and the night before she died the nurse told us to say our goodbyes because she wouldn’t make it through the night…she contacted a severe infection, very prone kasi sa infection ang premature babies specially with Elise kasi she was so tiny.  We couldn’t even carry her, we were just allowed to touch her and it was heaven for me.  Parang madudurog ang puso ko when I said goodbye to her.  At around midnight the nurse called to inform us that our baby died.  I cried buckets of tears during her one month stay here on earth, however, i was grateful and thankful for the times spent with her kahit i was not able to hold her in my arms.  Sabi nga sa word of God, “in everything give thanks,” even in trials and hardships dapat magpasalamat tayo sa Panginoon.  Kahit hindi ako nabigyan ng chance na makasama at palakihin sya, nagpapasalamat ako sa Panginoon kasi naramdaman ko kung paano maging isang ina and this is a huge thing for me and my husband.  That’s why every year I celebrate their birthday pati na rin birthday ng iba ko pang anak…I already have 4 angels in heaven and I know someday, in God’s time, I will see them in God’s kingdom.
Here’s a poem for you my precious angels…

The Master Gardener from Heaven above
planted a seed in the Garden of Love.
And from it grew a rosebud small
that never had time to open at all.

For God in His perfect and all-wise way
chose this rose for His heavenly bouquet.
And great was the joy of this tiny rose
to be the one our Father chose
to leave earth’s garden for one on high
where roses bloom and never die…
So, while we can’t see our precious rose bloom,
We know the Great Gardener from the “Upper Room”
is watching and tending this wee rose with care,
tenderly touching each petal so fair…
We’ll think of our darling with angels above
secure and content and surrounded by love.
And remember that God blessed and enriched
our lives too… for in dying, our darling
brought Heaven closer to us.

Happy, happy bithday my precious babies…John Adriel and Caitlyn Elise Mijares Agustin.

We love you dearly!!!

ngayon ang aming ikalabindalawang anibersaryo. i can’t believe it’s been 12 years since I said “yes” to my husband. we had a civil wedding na medyo comedy pa kasi nag buckle pa ang aking asawa habang isinusuot ang mumurahing singsing sa aking daliri. instead of saying, “wear this ring” ang kanyang nasambit ay “I wear you this ring.” it was a leap year nung kami’y ikinasal kaya lagi nyang sinasabi pinikot ko lang sya kasi he just turned 21 when we got married while I was 24. naalala ko din ang aming mumurahing singsing na binili lang sa SM for only 1200 pesos. until now hindi pa rin namin pinapalitan ang aming singsing kasi kahit mumurahin yun, it symbolizes our love and devotion for each other. naalala ko rin na hindi dumating ang kanyang ina nung aming kasal dahil sumama ang kanyang loob sa aking ina. nagkaroon kasi ng misunderstanding habang pinag-uusapan ang aming kasal. since we are born again christians, ang gusto ng aking magulang ay ikasal kami sa aming simbahan and during that time catholic pa ang aking asawa at ang kanyang pamilya kaya hindi pumayag ang kanyang ina. at since ang aking asawa ang panganay at unang ikakasal sa kanilang pamilya at ako naman ang kaisa-isang anak na babae kaya parehong pinagpipilitan ang kanilang gusto. until finally Jom and I decided na mag civil wedding na lang to be fair to everybody. pero ito ang naging dahilan ng hindi pagpunta ng aking biyenan sa araw ng aming kasal. pero after a couple of years, naging maayos din ang samahan ng aming mga pamilya and i guess I was able to prove to my mother in law na hindi lang ang kanyang anak ang aking mahal kundi silang lahat. at kahit hindi naging maganda ang aming simula, pinakita ko pa rin sa kanya ang aking paggalang at pagmamahal bilang ina ng aking asawa kaya marahil ito ang naging dahilan para mahalin at tanggapin nya ako. now I’m proud to say na napakaganda ng aming samahan.

aside from having kids of our own, one of our dreams is to renew our vow in front of our family and friends most specially his mother and my father na hindi namin nakasama nung kami’y ikinasal 12 years ago and it will be held in Tagaytay, a very memorable place for us. i know in God’s time it will happen!

Thank you Lord for this day…for the wonderful life I share with my husband, for the ups and downs, for the love we share and for the hope in our hearts that this union will go on forever!!!

today is my hubby’s bday, he’s 33.  im 4 years older than him pero hindi naman halata kasi mas mukha syang matanda sa kin, hahaha!  i decided to write about him since birthday nya naman so dapat sya ang bida sa blog ko ngayon.  i can describe my husband in so many words like mabait, malambing, very patient (with me specially) at marami pang iba.  but the word that best describes him is masayahin.  he’s my funnyman kasi lagi nya kong pinapatawa, we laugh a lot kaya laging maganda ang samahan namin.  hindi naman kami tipong baliw but we dont really take things seriously kasi ang lungkot naman kung masyadong seryoso kaya kahit wala kaming anak, masaya kaming dalawa. 

i never imagined he’ll be my husband kasi kinukurot kurot ko lang sya nung maliit sya…we live in the same village and he is my younger brother’s friend so everytime na nakikita ko sya at yung kapatid nya natutuwa ako sa kanila kasi they were both very chubby.  when i graduated in college, kaga-graduate nya pa lang ng high school so who would have thought na kami ang magkakatuluyan.  but im glad and very thankful at sya ang binigay sa kin ni Lord kasi super bait nya.  he didn’t offer me material things but only his love and his good traits.  pero syempre meron din naman syang negative traits but the good outweighs the bad.  

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY HONEYBABY!!!  Love you very much!!!  

bday

bagong taon na naman, ilang oras na lang tapos na ang 2007…ang bilis talaga ng panahon! it’s a good year para sa aming mag-asawa, maraming dapat ipagpasalamat hindi lang sa materyal na pagpapala but most of all sa spiritual blessings at good health sa buong family. Kaya ang prayer ko hindi lang para sa amin kundi para na rin sa lahat ay ang lubos na pagpapala ng Panginoon lalo na sa mga taong nangangailangan, kapayapaan sa mga taong nagdadalamhati, kasaganahan sa ating bansa, at pag-ibig at pang-unawa sa ating kapwa.


Maligaya at masaganang Bagong Taon sa lahat saan man dako ng mundo kayo naroon!!!
