BitterSweet Saturday

For Six Word Saturday and Friday Flash 55 -

Today, I hugged my children tighter;
Today, I held on a little longer;
And, yes, I yelled little lesser;
Was patient a while longer.
Even as my children wonder why
mommy smiled, kissed, hugged some more,
I pray for the innocence lost,
I pray that I will be
Many tomorrows as I was today

NaBloPoMo's work related prompt for Friday was as below. Since I did not get around to doing the prompt yesterday, I thought I will do it today instead.
Do you think you're yourself at work, or do you think your co-workers don't know the "real" you?
I am myself almost everywhere, not just at work. It is easier for me that way – just like it is easier to tell the truth, no matter how silly or bad it might be – because it is easier to remember the truth than to remember the lies told. The same thing applies to me in who I am. It is easier to be the real me than a pretend meJ.
Again, I am a little malleable when it comes to who I am – it depends on who I am with also. But more than actually being a different person, I tend to show some aspects of my personality more stronger based on whom I interact with. At work, now, after so many years in the same place, I have made many friends and over time, all these aspects have revealed themselves to people in knowing the full me, but always the real me.

For Saturday Snapshot 
This is a photo of corn husk dolls we made when we visited the Children's Discovery Museum in downtown San Jose - this is from a December four years ago!

For Saturday Snapshot and Round Robin Challenge -

Caught my little girl in action at her swimming lessons this Saturday.

And, last but not least, I would like to thank AJ from One Part Joy, One Part Circus for the Liebster award she gave me, I was hoping to post and forward the bloggy love by today but could not get around to it. Thank you, AJ, and I will have my post up for this soon (within the next three days!).


  1. Very nice thoughts. Those corn husk dolls look like they would be a lot of fun for kids to make.

  2. Great message. I think we're all hugging our babies tighter these days.

  3. Corn husks for handicrafts-very nice.

  4. If only children could be happy with corn husk dolls these days.... They look great.

  5. Definitely an action shot! I like your husk dolls, too!
