What a Gorgeous Day
Well spent I must say, with my Sisi and Peanut of course. Peanut, my angel… never ceases to amaze me. She is her very own little person, with full thoughts, beliefs and opinions. Quite intelligent and thankfully, well-mannered. She can spell, draw and paint beautifully and she’s starting to read on her own! I am blessed beyond words and so proud I can burst. She puts a smile on my face without even trying.
So, wow, it just makes me realize how time is flying. I am getting older, I see it all the time when I see younger kids. They look SO young. I can remember myself at that age, I used to think I was so grown when in reality, I was just a kid. Not by any means am I old, but I am the wiser and I do enjoy the simpler things in life.
The people I like to surround myself with are people who have families of their own or are in the process of doing so. Who are all heading towards a bigger goal. Positive people. Not the partying, club-type of people I used to hang with. (Avoiding the risk of sounding stereotypical, not all people who party are stagnant. The ones I know, are.) Not that there is anything wrong with that, going out and having a good time isn’t a crime. It’s just not a regularity in my life anymore, the sun has set for that. For me anyways.
I sure have grown up
LOL, the sound of that makes me laugh. I see a lot of the fears and hopes my parents had for me and my siblings in my own child. It’s scary in a way and it fills me with a sense of heightened understanding. I hope I can be most of what my parents were and more for my child and future children. That is the achievement I would be most proud of.
Anyway, the time has flown with me and Dara… But, it still feels like the very first day. First glance, first kiss. That butterfly, weak in the knees kinda feeling. It’s amazing that love can stay so strong and only burn stronger as time passes.

If someone had told me 5 years ago that this was what love WAS supposed to be, I would have laughed in their face. There are no lies, no selfishness, no anger, no arguing, no depreciation of the other. Simply, he is my best friend. He builds me up. Gosh, I love him.
So enough of that. I’m just really happy at this point in time. I think it’s well deserved. Well, I’m going to go enjoy the rest of the day with Pean, blow some bubbles with Mommy and Auntie!
