My “Wow” Moments

I need a perk up. It’s been difficult lately. I am a bit shaken by some thoughts of impending changes in our life that might be too soon in coming. I have to remind myself to think happy, positive thoughts. And so I will, by writing down the moments in my life that bring/brought smile on my face and that make/made me feel grateful and happy..

Here are some of those moments when the word WOW aptly describes everything…

the first time I had a heart to heart talk with my dad, who just did the opposite of what i expected would be his first reaction. Instead of getting mad at me and throwing me out of the house he laughed at me and hugged me and promised me that he would take care of everything

the first time my husband and I kissed and made love

the first time I held my daughter in my arms

the first time my daughter walked her first steps and said her first word

the first time I witnessed a butterfly coming out of its chrysalis

the first time I saw all these amazing sea creatures up close especially my favorite sting ray

the first time I sat behind the wheel again and drive after seven years of not driving

everytime my husband hugs me and kiss me and says I love you unexpectedly

everytime my husband go to great lengths just to please me

everytime my husband wakes up at an ungodly hour without complaints just to get me water or to accompany me or my daughter in the bathroom to pee

eveytime one of my close friend says exactly the right words that i need to hear or words that will soothe me and make me feel alright

everytime I receive answered prayers

everytime I experience deja’ vu

everytime I wake up without the help of my handy alarm clock at exactly the time that I am supposed to wake up

everytime I meet twins and the thought that I have nephews who are twins also

everytime I notice some semblance of myself or my husband in my daughter

everytime I find underneath drawers or cabinets things I have long forgotten already

everytime I gaze at our pictures in our photo albums and seeing how much we’ve grown and changed over the years

everytime I receive unexpected windfalls especially when we need it most

my bridal march during my wedding day with my daddy sniffling loudly at the background

those times before when my dad tirelessly played with my daughter and turned putty in her hands when he was still alive–he was after all a Police Colonel..:)

that time when my dad survived despite being in critical condition in the hospital for a month and how he was able to live another full month where he made sure to leave us many a happy memories that are still vivid in my mind

the sight of our flowers blooming everyday in our garden patch thus affirming my husband’s long standing belief that he has a green thumb

witnessing a garbage dumpsite successfully becoming a Gawad Kalinga community and being part of it all

being told by a student that I am the best teacher in the whole world

receiving a spontaneous hug from a student who is not part of my class but who just feels like giving me one

being told by this kid all the time that I look like 20 rather than my age 30 not so much because I really
look like it I’m sure, but because she just wants to go out of her way to make me feel good about myself and to see me smile

not experiencing any serious accident, injuries and illness for the past 30 years

staying married to the same guy for the past 8 years and still feeling blissfully happy with it despite of some minor problems that happen once in awhile

thinking about how everything always turns out well and how everything in my life just feels like a thousand puzzle pieces fitting perfectly together right from the start

the thought that whatever will happen, it has been planned and carefully thought out by that Mighty Hand…and the feeling right now that amidst all the confusions and uncertainties I feel at peace knowing that He will always bless me and my family and will always make sure to give me lots of things that will make feel..Wow..
