Thoughtful Child

Now that my two girls are already teens there are many things that they want to do to make us feel special. My eldest who is the most thoughtful among my kids is now planning what she should do or buy as gifts for our on our forthcoming 16th wedding anniversary. She’s searching into list of anniversary gifts for father and mother and I surmised it will be simple but will carry her thoughtful and caring ways. 

She was actually dropping hints to us what she would give us but never tells the exact items she plans to buy. Sometimes she only creates or designs her own gift as she’s very talented with her hands but I heard this time she’ll be buying personalized gifts. Anyway as for us it’s not the monetary value of the gift that counts but the thoughts that comes with the present.

Favorite Get Together Place

My sister went to Tagaytay yesterday to join her office friend in her despedida get together. They’ve chosen Picnic Grove for their venue and she learned that she’s the only one who has been there. We always go there on holidays and occasions because it’s a good place to bring your loved ones. It’s also a very relaxing place where we can share words of God freely without too much disturbances. I have many memories in that place and hundreds of pictures to live by. We used to visit the place since husband and I were only singles and now that we have three growing kids we let them enjoy the beauty of nature free from the hustle and bustle of city life. 

Ever since we started going there I realized that I haven’t tried horseback riding there. I don’t even know if there are equestrian helmets there or any protection for riders. I always see the riders there without anything on their heads so I presumed that it wouldn’t be a necessity for most as they only ride for an hour or so. On the other attractions there the most recent is the swimming pool and the zip line which I secretly hoped to do in the future if it’s safe. There are many things I’d like to try and want to see but I guess it will have to be in our future get together there. For now vacations and picnics will have to wait for summer as we’ll only have to wait for more than a month. I’m looking forward to doing these things.
