Tumor (Myoma)

My sister Rosel (in pink) has been diagnosed with  a tumor (myoma) in her  uterus.   It is not malignant but it is causing her so much pain so needs an immediate  surgery.  She will be  having the surgery soon and it is worrying me.  I am very stressed because I already experienced a losing  one of my siblings and this is making me paranoid.  She  is asking for financial help because they couldn't afford the surgery.  They have three kids and her husband 's salary  as a maintenance crew at Tesda isn't enough.
"When it rains, it pours."  I say that because my Mom needs financial aid too  for  another issue  and it is making me insane right now.  I have no job here and blogging is certainly down at this time so I am stressing out.  MY husband is always willing to help but since we are not rich and we have bills to pay every month, we certainly don't have  savings for  extra emergencies like this.
I thought of  making a  fund-raising  campaign but hubby did not want me to do that.  I dunno what to do but pray that I could come up with something so I could send the amount they need.  It is so hard.

I have never done  this before but I am reaching out for your help, financially and spiritually (prayers).   I have to come up with $600 to help my sister but I only got $90 in my paypal as of now so if you could please donate any amount (even just a dollar), it would be greatly appreciated!  You may send it to my paypal -  Thank you very much in advance and God bless you for your generosity and caring hearts!

UPDATE:  Earlier this week, I talked to my sister and her  surgery was scheduled on the 11th of November but today, she was admitted to the hospital as her condition is getting worse and her surgery was re-scheduled at an earlier date - November 4, was moved again to October 29th.   Please continue to  keep her in your prayers, thank you so much!

11th Anniversary

 When hubby and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary, we took the kids to places we've never been to.  It wasn't extra ordinary but something different  than what we normally do.  We  explored the big  seafood market in Pittsburgh and then we also ate there.  Then on our way home, we  drove by the shopping area at Settler's Ridge Market District.
Since 11 was an odd number, we did odd stuff that we don't usually do.  The kids have enjoyed it and so did we.  It was a simple celebration but  quite memorable.  For us, it doesn't matter if we don't have a lavish way of celebrating anniversary, what matters is the  happiness that all of us including our kids has for the occasion.  May God bless  us more with more years of being in-love together.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

My whole family was nominated to do the ICE Bucket Challenge.  My kids were very excited to do it but before we let them do it, we  explained to them  the importance of this challenge. This challenge is being done by so many people to  help raise awareness about  the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease". ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. I have seen  few  videos of people  that are affected of this disease and it  is heartbreaking.

Here is the video of my daughter's  challenge.  Hubby and EJ were posted on Facebook as well.   Both of the kids don't feel really good when  they did the challenge so we let the ice melt first before dumping  it it on them.   If you have seen my  son's video, I did not like how my husband dumped it on him  but my son liked it, he think it was cool.
As part of the challenge, you have to make a monetary donation to ALS Foundation.  You can donate as low as $5.  If everyone who does the challenge will  donate, ALS will have the help they need to  do research and extend  help to  people who are battling with  ALS.

I hope that you can help too even if you don't do the challenge, you can make a donation  here.

Rain or Shine: The Regatta at Lake Arthur

We were invited to a Fil-Am party at Moraine State Park in Pleasant Valley, Portersville PA. It was an hour or so drive from our city. The morning of the event, it was raining so hard and we doubted that it would be a good day to go but since we already promised the person who invited us that we are going, we went despite of the weather condition.
It was still raining when we arrived but later on, the weather got so much better and we ended up having a blast.  The kids had so much fun at the  Lake Arthur.  The Regatta at Lake Arthur had different kinds of events that day so we  all enjoyed it as a family after we departed from the Fil -Am party and decided to have fun at the lake.
It was a bit chilly that day but the kids courageously  plunged in the water.
HUbby and I sat on the bench up top while watching the Burritos have fun in the water.
You can rent a kayak boat or you can bring your own floating device like this family did.
After an hour or so, the kids had enough of the water.  I like it that  they put a mark where you can swim and  they also put sand  so kids can play like they are in the ocean, pretty neat.

Our trip was worth it, rain or shine, there are things to do at Lake Arthur  because of the Regatta program they have.  You can ride their boat tour and they would take you around the  lake.  We didn't get to do that due to time constraints but maybe next time.
