After three weeks vacation in the Philippines, I am now back in Norway. Then it is time to look back and tell you the highlights of my trip there.
After a long flight journey, me and my sister arrived safely home to our mother's house.
As you can see in the picture, my mother is wearing the hat I crocheted in Norway before my journey. I gave it to her and she really liked it very much. Warmed my heart.
Nothing changed much since my last visit there last year. She still fond of tending flowering plants.
I loved them!
Sunrise still fascinates me there in the Philippines. To see the rice fields too from my mother's veranda was really amazing!
Reminded me of my childhood days where me and my mother used to plant rice.
Fresh air refreshed my soul and looking at the view revived my innermost being.
Looks like a fairy tale world for me!
Quiet every morning as usual since only my mother and her sister lives here.
We had some visitors too like Lisa who use to run errands to help our mother. She is very kind.
We talked about good old days that made my mother really laugh although it was a sad story then.
Nice to see her laughing coz she seldom do it.
Lisa brought with her fresh watermelon. Oh, it was so sweet.
My mother served fried fish with bitter melon salad and rice. How I missed my mother's cooking!
I spent a few days with my mother before I went to my children to spend time with them.
My granchildren with their parents came too so we could be together that weekend.
Here are my precious grandchildren. I miss them already!
I will tell more more in my next post!
Thought for the day!
Life can't give joy and peace;
it's up to me to will it.
Life just gives me time and space;
it is up to me to fill it.
