It's Monday once again, and it's Mariposa's tradition to do ALL her fun Monday activities in one post...so I present to you Fun...Music...Manic!
It's the first Monday of May and for some reason, this week is just so special and meaningful to me...and I would love to start my week SO right!
FUN Monday host for today is no other than the lovely Kitten! The theme for this week is Fun Monday Hero, she said -
"Tell me about the Super Hero in your life. Not from TV, but anyone that has been or is in your life that you have really looked up to or has made a impact on your life. It can one or many. You can share pictures if you like. Just have fun with it."
I just love this theme, very much!
I have several heroes in my life...but this week is timely for 2 important events and occasion in my life...which prompts me to make my Fun Monday dedicated to only 2 people in my life.
This Thursday...May 8...will be my 5th year with the IT Guy! Yes folks, we've been together that long...and hopefully we get to formalized everything next year.
Yummy (aka IT Guy) is my hero! His technical expertise in information technology had carried me through so many difficult situations...BUT of course it goes beyond that. Yummy is my best friend...my comforter...my devil's advocate...and the best lover I've had! With him I just don't have to explain myself...he accepted me...and he has been my confidante for years now. There is nothing about me that he does not know. And same with me.
I've had so many struggles in my life...my career...my relationships with friends...family...plus my extreme moods...and HE made it ALL easy for me. I have stop my mood stabilizers the moment I had him in my life...and it was then I realize THAT love and friendship is more important than Efexor! LOL
So my the IT Guy has the following attributes (in alphabet!) of a hero - Agreeable, Bountiful, Constant, Dutiful, Easy, Faithful, Gallant, Honorable, Ingenious, Kind, Loyal, Mild, Noble, Officious, Prudent, Quiet, Rich (in many ways!), Secret (we do have ALOT of this!), True, Valiant, Wise; the X indeed, is too harsh a letter to agree with him, but he is Young and Zealous.
Yummy, te amo mucho! And thanks for having me!!!
Mother's Day is around the corner...and I would love to start the mood for that special occasion today...though I know celebrating it for one week won't give justice to ALL mothers...it should be everyday, YET to overdo it in a week time won't do any harm...
My ultimate hero would be my Mom (Dad, you will have your turn come June, don't be envious...okay? LOL) I would know how I could articulate more what I have written for her on her birthday last year!
Mom loves me unconditionally...to a point that I feel I don't deserve ALL the things she had done for me. I can take anything and everything because when I come home...I know my Mom will be there to tell me I'm still the best daughter she has (well I'm her only daughter...LOL) and that she and Dad are so proud of me!
With that said, I would say no one in the world can take the place of my Mom. Right or wrong, I am always right from her viewpoint. She may have scold me a thousand times...but only for the the little things...for the big ones...she gives me her HUG, her LOVE and her UNDERSTANDING!
What I am today...who I am now...whatever I have...and ALL I ever hope to be...I owe it to my Mom! Happy Mother's Day Mom...you're my hero...
I would also like to dedicate my Music Monday to you...for YOU are the Wind Beneath My Wings...I would also like to share this song to ALL the mothers in the world!
Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.
Did I ever tell you you're my hero?
You're everything, everything I wish I could be.
Time to do MANIC Monday now...and the MANIC guy, Mo, sets FRESH as the theme for this week! Last Saturday, Yummy (aka IT Guy) picked me up from work...and on the way home it was raining so HARD...then he looked at me and smile...and well, I was thinking what he was thinking...or he was thinking what I was thinking...We used to drive south of the island ALOT but somehow due to our hectic schedule had not been able to do so...so AT THAT MOMENT, we just decided to give it a GO!
So we drove up the mountain few kilometers from the place I live...and...the view from there was just AMAZING! I have only my cellphone to take pictures...but it was such a -
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the word
So who are your heroes? What is that song playing in your head on this Monday morning? What comes to your mind when you read/ say/ hear FRESH?
Check out some wonderful people who MANIC every Monday through FUN and MUSIC!
