Prayers Answered

More pictures, more gratitude. I did not post last week, so I am doing a make up.

I am thankful for more than ten things, I am sure. Here they are:

  • Desserts in a local nursing convention along with valuable learnings I picked up from many speakers. I can use them at work to improve patient care. The breakfast and lunch were tasty as well.
  • My grandson looks so cute with his dad here. They were taking selfies.

  • A music-filled night watching a Beetles tribute concert on a Valentine's night with friends. Guess where the group are from? Las Vegas, lol. They fooled us talking with an English accent all along until the end when they announced they are Americans. :) They were pretty good singing the popular songs of Beetles, though.
  • A Valentine's dinner before the concert in a new restaurant with all-you-can eat sushi. It is a new branch in our city called Sushi Katsu. 
  • Free champagne in red glass. We finished it fast and Paul might be too drunk making silly faces with it. :)
  • They have Taro dessert, an Asian cake, I like.

  • On a serious note, my auntie passed away after years of battling cancer. She is survived by one lucky son, and three lucky daughters who were blessed by her care, love, and support overy many years.
  • The flowers are from the gym my daughter and I go to. We exercise there and take our stresses out. It means a lot especially the week of the event that is best not to describe in great detail.
  • My son's trouble is over related to the event.
  • My daughter's trouble abruptly ended related to the event.
  • My prayers were answered related to the event.
  • The common denominator aside from the event is removed from our house. We will have a home again.
  • I thank God and the legal system for their assistance.
  • I thank the medical team who helped us.
  • I am happy and thankful beyond words. We celebrated with a family favorite cake--tres leches--for our freedom.
The lesson I learned here is not to take in any homeless person again. I should help some other way but to offer a spare room. It was not easy the last two years, to say the least. Thank God, it's over.

Have a good week, you all.

Ten Things of Thankful


  1. Oh, wow. I'm glad that the event is over and done.
    My condolences on the loss of your aunt.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. And I'm glad the event is over. Sounds like a delicious Valentine's day.

  3. Wow! Sometimes what seems like a way to help someone get out of a mess they are in, just instigates a bigger mess, perhaps for them and for others. But you tried.

    Your auntie looks like such a sweet lady. So sorry for your loss.

  4. Condolences on your aunt's passing.
    and, congratulations, (though surely not the correct word, I trust you take it's intent) on a satisfactory ending of a problem.
    Good TToT

  5. I'm so sorry for the loss of your aunt. She was a lovely lady and obviously loved.
    Glad your event is over and done with. I'm involved with an event as well, although not as bad as yours - mine is a deadbeat renter and the eviction process has begun.. Hope all of you heal from your event quickly!

New Year 2021 Gratitude

Welcome to my first post in the New Year 2021. Most of my off days are still spent indoors. It is cold outside. 39 degrees in Colorado. With still some social distancing, I still have many things to be grateful for this second wave of COVID. A family member was hospitalized in December but released in early January in better health. The COVID population in my hospital is low. I completed my 2/2 COVID immunization. It is something to be thankful for being in Tier 1A as I work in the intensive care unit. A working fireplace to sit close to - at home. A pedicure service for me and my daughter (and a cheese grater for callus removal *laughing out loud*) Chair massager at home to go home to after a long day at work. My family loves the chair, even little Josiah who is not even two. Funny Josiah whatever he does. He eats like a dog with a spoon and fork in his hands. Who needs those spoons and forks? They are just props. Kiddie masks fitting Josiah. He does not mind much wearing it. For many


I harvested some greens from my indoor hydroponic planter . The greens can't get fresher than these, harvested right from my dining room. They are perfect with the Costco-size beef and pork.  I cooked six dishes. Most left-overs will be frozen for later like after-work dinner when most times, we are too exhausted to cook. I am grateful for the memory of cooking comfort I remembered from childhood in the Philippines--peanut stew, adobo, pork chops seasoned with lemon pepper, and sour soup.  I am grateful for the recipes readily available from the internet, the oven, instapot, and air fryer. I was able to cook 6 dishes in 2 hours, preparation time included. You'd think I was in a cooking contest under time-pressure. Only the judges (my family) are more forgiving and very appreciative of my cooking. I am grateful for the simple things I get to enjoy with my family--walking outdoors, however cold, before the snow hit--picture taking, and watching TV together. I am even thankful for
