“To live in this world, you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go” ~ Mary Oliver
I know that I can only control so much in my life so I was so determined that this weekend I will have to learn how to breathe a little and relax. It was time to shed my other roles and just be me.
My weekend started with a romantic Friday night date with hubby. We think that touching base with each other helps keep our marriage stronger. Before there was a family, there were only the two of us and our relationship is very important too.
Saturday was family day. We had a quiet stroll along the bay while watching the sun set. The cool breeze blowing in our faces while walking and holding hands with the girls, ahhh that was unforgettable. And then we heard mass at the church where hubby and I got married. It was solemn and I had the chance to thank God for a wonderful day. And then, we went shopping! Like any other girl shopping is therapeutic for me, LOL.
Then my daughters and I got really crazy and danced around the house like a banshee, to the tune of Crazy in Love by Beyonce, LOL. Not to be outdone, hubby also did a number. Overall it was a crazy and wonderful weekend...and it's not yet over, I still have the evening to look forward to. I hope you had the same wonderful and unforgettable weekend like the one I just had.
“It only takes one smile to offer welcome...and blessed be the person who will share it.
It only takes one moment to be helpful...and blessed be the person who will spare it.
It only takes one joy to lift a spirit...and blessed be the person who will give it.
It only takes one life to make a difference...and blessed be the person who will live it.” ~ Amanda Bradley
And you know, sometimes all you have to do is breathe and just let it go. dancing does not hurt too =)
