Thankful woman!


In the past few days, I really feel that I have  lots of things to be grateful about.

 Norway, in difference from other countries, celebrates mother's day in the second Sunday of February. And who's the lucky woman this time? Well, it is supposed to be me and all the mother's in Norway. Because the children normally serve breakfast in bed to their mothers with cake and flowers. But at home, my daughter does not normally do that, because I don't want to eat breakfast or cake in bed too early in the morning.

Yesterday she gave me two flower bouquets as a mother's gift on Sunday.  One from her father who is now ombord the ship and one from her.

         This is from my youngest daughter. Isn't she thoughtful?
          
                     

                              And this is from my husband. How sweet!

Well, thanks to them. I am so grateful.

Now, another story. A story about a seaman and his asian wife:)

For those that had been following my blog knows that I am married with a seaman and I came from Asia. ( Philippines) 
Last Christmas I made a seaman stuff doll as a gift to him.


But then I promised that I am going to make him a wife. A me stuff doll. And now, after more than a month, he has now a wife.

Hope they look like us. But anyway, I believe that they are going to live happily ever after. Now, I have to make our daughter too. And that is in another post:)


Another thing to be thankful is this picture. It really touched my heart. A thank you card with the pictures of PBO members and the children in White Cross Childrens Homes




Thank you guys for work well done. God bless you all. I am so happy to be part of it.

Anyway,  we celebrate also Fastlavn day on Sunday!


Fastelavn is the name for Carnival in Denmark and Norway which is either the Sunday or Monday before Ash Wednesday. Fastelavn evolved from the Roman Catholic tradition of celebrating in the days before Lent, but after Denmark became a Protestant nation, the holiday became less specifically religious. This holiday occurs seven weeks before Easter Sunday and is sometimes described as a Nordic Halloween, with children dressing up in costumes and gathering treats for the Fastelavn feast. The holiday is generally considered to be a time for children's fun and family games.¨

  13. Happy Mother's Day! Your daughter's really sweet and those flowers are beautiful. Iba iba talaga ang dates ng Mother's Day. Here in Italy it's still different. Really can't remember when. I know I ought to remember such important date.

    The dolls are fantastic. That's really sweet of you. Ang cute naman ng gestures of love niyo! I do hope that in the future someone will make a doll like that for me, hahaha!

    These simple gestures are really priceless, memorable and beautiful. OThers would ask for new gadgets, dress, shoes, and jewelry. We often underestimate the beauty and the perpetual grace of simple gestures of love. A hug, a kiss, or a doll like that. Ah, Ms. Joy, you're one blessed woman.

    And Norway's sunrise is such a beautiful sight! I wish I could spend a vacation there, though my friends told me that it's quite expensive travelling to Norway. But i think it would be worth it.
