Last week my Mother got sick, she had a pneumonia. She had to be confined in the hospital for three days. I was so worried and really pity her because she got high fever and a persistent cough.
She is home and recovering now. Soon she will be in pink of health again. By January she will be 86 years old. Would you believe that she haven't had inflicted diseases that comes with old age like arthritis, cardiovascular, diabetes, alzheimer's disease and the like? Still very strong!
Allow me to share with you this poem that I looked up online, I printed this out, framed and gave to my mother when she was confined in the hospital.
Having an iPad is one of my Christmas wish. Bumping in to several blogs this giving season, I encountered this iPad Giveaway, without hesitation I joined in to win this 16GB 4th Generation Apple iPad with Retina Display!
What a splendid giveaway!!!
The Giveaway will run for the whole month of December and is open worldwide. I’ll try my luck here; I really want to have an iPad this Christmas. Fingers crossed…
It’s Christmas season again, and one of my favorite Christmas carols, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is heard far and wide from shopping malls to TV commercials and radio stations.
Ever wonder what does a song about a partridge in a pear tree, turtle doves, hens, birds, geese and swans have to do with Christmas?
Here is an interesting symbolism I read online:
A Partridge in a Pear Tree - Jesus Christ
Two Turtle Doves - The Old and New Testaments
Three French Hens - The three virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity
Four Calling/Collie Birds - Four gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
Five Golden Rings - First five books of the Old Testament
Six Geese-a-Laying - Six days of creation before God's rest on the seventh day
Seven Swans-a-Swimming - Seven gifts of the Holy Spirit
Eight Maids-a-Milking - Eight Beatitudes
Nine Ladies Dancing - Nine fruits of the Holy Spirit
Ten Lords-a-Leaping - Ten Commandments
Eleven Pipers Piping - Eleven faithful disciples
Twelve Drummers Drumming -Twelve points of belief in the Apostles' Creed
One of my wishes since I’ve started this blog and joined a lot of blog giveaways is to hold my own giveaway. That wish has come true. This Christmas season, online chances and Firmoo will give 25 vouchers worth of $20 each for you to use in a purchase of Firmoo glasses.
The giveaway starts today December 7 and will end on December 23. There will be 25 winners! Good luck and Merry Christmas to all of you.
