Storms come and go
Struggles and worries, too.
The wind continues to blow
until life is threatened  
And, fears are felt inside.
You agonize and your body weakens
But, the Spirit still has to fight.
Faith is strengthened.
Carry on, carry on
life could fly anytime.
Get ready,
celebrate life intensely.
Mingle, share and have fun
Be happy,
to God be the glory.


Celebrating 18th Wedding Anniversary!

Happy 18th Wedding Anniversary dear parents.!  I love you so much and no words can express how blessed I am to have you.  Life may give us lemon but both of you work hard to make the best lemonade. Cheers to 18 years of love in this lifetime and 109 more for the next.  I love you.

Going to the parlor and having a haircut – sorry no picture!

Seeing a movie with husband and daughter – sorry no picture again!

And finally, doing something that I love the most, PAINTING!

Featured image  (dated 18 July 2019) :  Joy’s first attempt at painting with cray pas, a gift from Pinky, after having not done any art work for some time now.

PS.  JOY: I just want to add this painting which I made during my chemo last Febuary 2017.  I will give it to Bess.   Bess is my childhood friend since kindergarten to College. So blessed to have friends for a lifetime.
