Easter 2018

"Peace is the beauty of life. It is sunshine. It is the smile of a child, the love of a mother, the joy of a father, the togetherness of a family. It is the advancement of man, the victory of a just cause, the triumph of truth." -  Menachem Begin
 This is long overdue.  These photos were taken almost three months ago.  My slowpoke pace of  posting about  stuff is terrible.  The flow of ideas doesn't really come easy sometimes, no matter how I try.  I end up staring at the computer screen and then leave because  this  tiny nugget of a brain of mine  does not work!  However, when I get lucky, I can post  like 5 articles in a day but that is very seldom.  I can remember when I was just starting to blog, I am always excited  to write   different things everyday to the point that I  would ran out of things to write.  These days however, I have so many pending stuff to write but my  brain does not cooperate.  
 Anyway, our Easter celebration was awesome.  We just went to church and attended  a mass then came home and eat.   Ever since my FIL went to a home and then passed away, our  holidays are spent  just the four of  us at home.  I miss the family gathering  when my FIL was still alive and we  are all on the same page and got along so well.  We still get invited to  family gatherings, it's just that it feels so different without my husband's Dad so most of the times we chose not to go. I wish that my side of the  family is near, I'd probably have my Mom over everyday or I'll visit her often.  It sucks to be so far away.
For Father's day's celebration, we visited my brother-in-law whom we haven't seen since my FIL's funeral.  It was  so nice catching up with him and his wife.  They live quite far from us but it was worth the drive.
"Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored." - Earl Nightingale
