it's gonna be Christmas soon!

Today is the 15th of October. We’re halfway through the month and Christmastime is just around the corner. Christmas season is something I so look forward to every single year. I just love the merry feeling it gives me when I think of it.

But this time is different. As I countdown through the days before Christmas, I somehow feel a bit of sadness knowing that forty-nine days after the merry day, I shall be leaving behind my family and friends for a new life that awaits miles and miles away from home. And just writing about it brings me to tears already. It is our choice though… something that husband and I have planned for nearly two years ago.

After indulging myself with the sad thought, the excitement begins to surface. Yes, we will finally live our lives in a place we have always dreamt of, and it is going to be exciting! It may not always be easy, but it will be fun! It may be full of uncertainties, but we will surely learn new things. And as we go through everything that may be new to us, it would be comforting to know that we have each other and by God’s grace we would be A-OK!

Now I am happy again! Am I crazy? Nah! Just thrilled!

trying to be back

I have just checked my blog dashboard and was surprised to see one comment to be moderated despite the fact that I haven’t been blogging for more than a month now.

Thanks to that comment because I am writing again. But what really prompted me to make a new post is the number of updates that I have been missing reading all these weeks from the very few blogs I am following.

I need to allot time to catch up on my reading and know what’s going on with my blogger-friends. I pray that you are all well whatever circumstances you may be in now.

As for me, I have been good, though there had been a few migraine attacks in the last weeks, and we had been slightly affected by typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana). I have been busy sorting files in my office desktop to ensure smooth turnover of workload until December of this year. Husband and I have also been preparing the things we need to bring when we leave in February next year. And in doing all these, I have a cycle of mixed emotions of excitement, sadness, happiness, uncertainty, and then excitement again, and the cycle just continues.

We are thankful that our families and friends are very supportive of our endeavors. And we pray that God would bless them even more.

How about you? How have you been?
