‘Tis The Season of Changes

So many changes…

So many twisted turned of events…

So many exciting things…

Some not so exciting, it made me sick to my stomach but I will not write about it.

Focusing instead on finding joy in every turns and paths.

Remember my last linky with Memories Captured? We got to see the result last week and I was told its OK to post it online. This picture is for the hotel’s newsletter and it went live on Whats New Jakarta website. Also, the ad will show up on our local newspaper on December 13, 2012.

My boy turned 6 years old last Friday and when I snapped this picture I was taken back by how grown up he looks like. We had an intimate religious ceremony with our prayer group to celebrate his big day. It was really special.

A day later, he had a school’s year end performance. My usually shy boy has been selected to play the King. He didn’t have a lot of lines but to see him standing there, microphone in hand and bravely carried out his lines? This mama couldn’t be more proud than that!


I’ve been back on my old job for exactly a week today. Yes, I’m back to the corporate world and no longer act as work at home mom. While it’s great to be back, I have to readjust myself to juggle things up again. First thing that slides away? The blog and reading other blogs – yes, yours included!

My brother’s wedding is 11 days away. Everything is busy busy busy. Christmas is just around the corner. So many things to do.

My daily routines shifted, changing but I know I am blessed. Truly. Without a doubt! May you all have a blessed December too.

I’m linking up with the awesome Alison from and Galit for the December’s Memories Captured Linky.

    Hi Maureen,
    Yup, sometimes it’s good to make a tough descission and just do it. I always say “follow your heart” The mind will come later.
    Your little googball is tuning into being a miniature man soon.. Well actually way to soon when you think about it.
    Oh and how far away are we and you really? Just one mouseclick… 😉 You’re setting your priorities and be back went you’re ready. I’m commanding you! 😉

    Hi Mo,

    Love how you put up the special day of all years into one. Kinda like a timeline of his life. Seems he had a long hair in ages 3 and 4 😉

    Is that queen next to him? Seems like he’s much confident enough to be there and talk. Ugh… Am not 😉

    Love the pictures of your boy! My oldest is about the same age and recently, I too was struck by how grown up he looks. When did that happen? Happy birthday to him and congrats to you on your return to work. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
