Not too late a gift

I know it’s a little late to check for a Mother’s Day gift but hope to still get one for my mom who will be celebrating her birthday next month. My mom loves pants and blouse but I’m thinking of giving her cute dresses for a change. You’ll never see her go out wearing a dress. Besides the fact that she doesn’t own a new one, she said it’s comfortable to move in pants. While I agree with her, I guess it’s about time that she adds a dress to her wardrobe. A white long sleeve maxi dress is a good choice for mom. However, the dress that I pick for her will need to get a little seam since my mom is petite I don’t want her to look like wearing a gown.

Also, mom will be delighted to receive a dress on her 77th birthday, which will be a few weeks from now.

And while I’m hunting for a dress right now, I’m looking for an outfit that matches my mood right now. I saw this v-neck super heavy silk double crepe dress at Kis. This dress is a classic piece that you must add in your wardrobe.  You don’t need accessories if you’re wearing something like this because it looks elegant. Even if I can’t travel at the moment, I can still wear this outfit while working at home. I have to look presentable in front of the computer while having a meeting with the boss online.

If ever travel ban is lifted, I would most probably hit the beach. You’ll probably catch me wearing not this dress but a flowing chiffon dress (I saw one at Kis) and a hat. And of course sunblock is on top of the travel must have to protect us from excessive sun exposure.

Thank God

My husband attended a seminar workshop in 2008 and furnished a worksheet that contains this poem.

I am thankful for a whole lot of things specially for those I don’t always see.

For my wife who is nagging me,
Thank God, she is at home with me and not with someone else.

For my husband who is on the sofa being a couch potato,
Thank God he is at home with me and not out to the bars.

For the teenager who is complaining about doing the dishes,
Thank God that means she is at home with me and not in the streets.

For the taxes that I pay,
Thank God that means I am employed.

For the mess to clean after a party,
Thank God it means that I am surrounded by friends.

For the windows that need cleaning and the gutters that need fixing,
Thank God I have a home.

For all the complaining I hear about the government,
Thank God we have a freedom of speech.

For the parking spot I find at the end of the parking lot,
Thank God I am capable of walking and I am blessed with a car.

For the lady behind me in church who sings off-key,
Thank God I can hear.

For the pile of laundry and ironing,
Thank God I have clothes to wear.

…..And finally, for too much email…..
Thank God I have friends who are thinking about me!
