Super Typhoon Yolanda

Tonight we are very thankful that God spare us from the super typhoon that strike in our country today.  Another nature tragedy which left the country another shocking experienced. This is the first time we experience super typhoon and no one expect the vast area included of the destruction. 

Tonight's news is very heartbreaking as we saw many lost their homes and infrastructures. We are glad that we had few fatalities reported this time and hopefully until the typhoon will totally out from the country.  This natural tragedy left us another lesson that we must save our environment so that there will be no more unusual nature tragedy happening.

I took videos before the actual typhoon strike this morning.

Butterfly Visitor

This morning we had a nice and windy weather even though there was no sun.  The atmosphere was a bit cloudy and calm though we are expecting a super typhoon name Yolanda.

I am really happy to see that somebody visited our garden. I love to see butterflies in our garden. I feel very really relax as I can see green life in our garden. Bees and butterflies were busy looking for food as the bad weather is approaching.

I really love to see green as it represents life. I am very environmental conscious and particular on saving life. I am up with using any environmental green bags to minimize  in using plastic bags. Doing such action in my simple way I can contributed a big part of preserving our mother earth.

Super Typhoon Yolanda

Today, we were told to prepare for the coming super typhoon Yolanda or HAIYAN for its international name.  It has never expected  that a super typhoon can come before this year ends, although we are still in the rainy season. Living in a tropical country, typhoon is always expected but not to the super typhoon.  It has been estimated to the maximum sustained winds of 195 kph near the center and the gustiness of up to 230 kph. The strength of the typhoon is not safe for us especially that we had just experienced earthquakes last month and a tropical depression just earlier this week that brought whirlwinds and water spout which destroyed many houses and establishments.

This morning, hubby went to buy for our food. We stock food, emergency kit, flashlights, water and batteries. He told us that people are in panic buying of food and other important needs.  He told us that people filled their shopping bags with food, canned goods, water and bread. People are taking the government’s warning seriously about the super typhoon by saving food and some  are evacuated to safer areas. It is really important to be ready always than sorry for not taking the warnings seriously.

Tonight before going to bed, it is important to say prayers for safety even a strong typhoon will enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility. It is important to be ready in everything no matter what lies ahead. Lord Jesus.. We entrust to you our lives.  Lord Jesus, spare us from danger.

Beautiful Flowers

It has been my passion of planting vegetables, orchids and flowers. It feels very comforting when I saw many flowers around me in my little garden. I love the fresh air. I love to see butterflies around my garden.

One of my plants has a beautiful flower with a nice scent. I have here the pictures which I took this morning. Hmmmm.... Our house smells like flower as well. Thank you Lord for the life you gave to those little flowers.

Practical Mothers

Mothers done so much important task in the house. The usual person to know about the household management. This is one thing I am very thankful about my mother. She had to make herself available for us 24 hours every day without hesitations. She had to be always strong even problems come to test the family. She is the heart and the light of the family. I really appreciate how my mom took care all of my siblings and nurturing us in the right manner.

My mother, as my dad’s other half, he intrusted everything in the house to my mother.  From the house beautification, planning, facilitating us in school up to budgeting, it is our mother who did the execution of what they had agreed with our father for the benefit of the family. This is very important to remember for the couple even in the absence of the other half, any decisions made must be agreed upon before it will be implemented.

One thing I had observed from my sisters and even to myself being a wife, all the decisions about the budgeting for the groceries, food, bills and etc. were being entrusted to us by our partners.  This  is probably because our husbands trusted us for the monetary aspect of the family. This is one thing we can be proud of saying that our mother taught us to be always responsible in life even with the monetary aspect. Spending money in the right manner is very important. She taught us to always on being practical and never spend more than what you have earned.

Being a practical wife, I never thought of spending things that are not important to us. Things that cannot be useful everyday or neither the family can benefit upon will not be included on my list when going to the grocery. I am very particular about what to buy. I usually request for reusable bags for my groceries.  When using reusable bags, I can help reduce the problem of our environment.  A way of conserving our environment is to at least avoid using those that are not biodegradable.
